Barbican cosplay extravaganza

For not having many published native manga artists -that I know of, and despite interest being huge- London still has a lot of events going on related to Japanese pop culture. This weekend was Cosplay Extravaganza; rumored to be something as unusual as a cosplay party going well into the morning!

Was a bit skeptical of the combination, and admittedly it was less of a party and more of an exhibition hall where you could drink beer whilst wandering around.
Jonna and I went exploring.

Asking for directions from a white rabbit

The scene with mandatory talks and lectures

Video game corner

Making an effort

The very unusual view of cosplayers in front of bar

Loved this guy, and his two beers.

Jonna glittering like the prettiest star, supported by camera sparkle filter (the best filter).

DJ even


Vivienne Westwood rocking horse wing shoe! If one has ever read Nana, one can not help but be a Vivienne fan. I blame the comics.

Tomas: Manga Shakespeare är typ det jag har hört om, men tipsa gärna om du vet något mer! Hade varit roligt att kolla upp när jag ändå är här!
