23 Nov 2008, 6:52 am
As already mentioned, i'm going too.

I'mma probably be going on the Sunday tho'.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 6:54 am
WHY!!! we cant do sunday.....I dont think. might be able to!

23 Nov 2008, 6:55 am
I cant do sunday. Only saturday unfortunately. Cant u do sat?

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 6:59 am
Why only sat?

Im gonna see if i can do both!

23 Nov 2008, 7:02 am
I have a friend who did both days.....

Anyway, i'll see what I can do. No promises, but i'll discuss it with my friend who organises the trip.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 7:04 am
Yay! and how about cosplay? got any ideas?

23 Nov 2008, 7:10 am
Group AnimeB cosplay? xD

I have no ideas though. If anyone wishes to suggest something for me to do, fire away.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 7:13 am
Lol. i'll go as selo. i just have to tape my carpet to my legs! XD

Hmmm... Im thinking about going as someone From FF. What games/Anime you watch?

23 Nov 2008, 7:22 am
I've watched a lot of anime and played a lot of games.

My post would be too long if I answer. What about you?

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 7:25 am

That helps.

I watch alot too. was thinking about going as roy mustang from FMA

Quick, you could go as naru, from LH

23 Nov 2008, 8:31 am
I'm not crossplaying quite yet...

Roy Mustang? If we need help, there's always a fire alchemist to help us! xD

23 Nov 2008, 9:28 am
aye ive been a regular there ever since the first expo. The one in October was surprisingly good to be honest - compared to that crapfest JapanEX they pulled last year.

Stayin for both days as usual ofc with a few mates for my cosplay groups etc.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 9:40 am
I can't stay over night. To young to stay in a hotel on my own. I'm 15

Dunno. Might not be tall enough for mustang.

Might be someone from naruto.

Grey Fox
23 Nov 2008, 10:34 am
Well, I'm going Saturday for certain, maybe I'll be there Sunday too, depends, I will be somewhat anchored to wolf and neji.

I'm gonna be doing a Tales series cosplay, Asch fon fabre.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 11:50 am
argh! I wanna go both days!

I have a cosplay, but I don't wanna wear it 2 times in a row.

23 Nov 2008, 11:59 am
Get two cosplays then. Many people do.

Although that might be expensive.

Hyuga Neji
23 Nov 2008, 12:49 pm
I could afford it. Just dunno who to go as.

23 Nov 2008, 5:54 pm
I need motivation just to get my first cosplay. Wouldnt know who to go as either.

23 Nov 2008, 6:48 pm
I would go, but then i had to choose between that and my trip to japan.
Obvious answer

Grey Fox
23 Nov 2008, 6:54 pm
Hmmmm, I dunno why, But Wolf seems like a potential http://www.abyssalchronicles.com/cards/klarth1.jpg to me...

If he feels he needs to CP as a char from an anime he watches i could give him some links.

And Neji, go as Cloud or Zack fair on the second day, so i could have a reason to go as Tseng!

24 Nov 2008, 12:29 pm
I need to go as someone i vaguely know and like though.

1. Psycho mantis (would look creepy, but i could pull it off)
2. Marth (i think f0x suggested him. I have the right build to be him)
3. Wolf o'donnell (neji would call me a furry... :( )
4. Someone from naruto (yays?)

Cant remember any other suggstions.

Oh wait!!! Kirby!!!:grinbounce:

24 Nov 2008, 12:43 pm
why do so many people put stuff in the wrong section? I mean, I've moved more threads in the past month then I've ever done as a mod!!!

moved to anime discussion.

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 1:19 pm
This shouldnt be in the anime section! Its not just anime. its manga and comics and video games! therefore it should be in Chit chat!

I suggested marth. and no one from naruto. to many people do it.


SRSLY though. this should of been in Chit Chat.

24 Nov 2008, 2:10 pm
No it shouldn't.

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 2:20 pm
Why? whats the reason?

24 Nov 2008, 2:32 pm
Im not going to argue. Yes it is partly video games,but who cares if its moved.

Also f0x suggested space invader. I has the t-shirt!:grinbounce:
Neji? U suggested marth??? I thought it was f0x! Oh well.

What about Jigglypuff?

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 2:37 pm
>_> you mistaking me for fox? i guess we do have simalar ideas.

No jigglypuff. it would look so gay. and hard to move around in.

And it would make me and fox look crazy, going round with you.

24 Nov 2008, 2:41 pm
Too true! I would have to say that marth and psycho mantis are the best options so far. Any other ideas?

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 2:53 pm

Where you Gonna get a PM cosplay?

24 Nov 2008, 2:59 pm
This thread probably been moved, because we're discussing cosplay ideas from lots of different anime's and manga's.

Agreed that there will be no Kirby or Jigglypuff. Feel free to do a sexy leopard skin solid snake tho'. xD

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 3:07 pm
But it might not stay that way, then its in the wrong thread again.

o_0 and no quick. Gay much? hmmmm. not that thats a problem. its ok in this day and age. Wolf has some....personal experience with that sorta stuff.

24 Nov 2008, 3:11 pm
No, i'm not gay actually.

hears a gasp in the distance.

This thread should be "unclassifiable."

Hyuga Neji
24 Nov 2008, 3:15 pm

Thats not real. burns quick.

Any other cosplay thoughts?

You deffinatly going?

24 Nov 2008, 4:45 pm
I'll find a way to go, even if my friends don't.

But I can't guarantee that i'll be going Saturday.

And i'm still considering cosplay, but i'm not entirely sure yet.

Grey Fox
24 Nov 2008, 5:54 pm
Well wolf i could give you some links to Klarths anime, You'd like it, Plus i think you have the right build and height for him.

Also I suggested Psycho mantis, you're got everything about him but the voice down pat(and the barcode on his head.).

25 Nov 2008, 2:32 am
Barcode on his head?

Sounds like the guy from the hitman games...

Mind showing me a picture of this Psycho Mantis guy, so I can have an idea of what you guys are talking about.

25 Nov 2008, 3:09 am
:o, this is not anime and manga :p, this is about agreeing on stuff for a con, so its chit chat. Moving back :P

Also! you englanders should take pictures of the cute above 18 girl cosplayers and post em here :P

25 Nov 2008, 3:45 am

I think that's illegal here Selo, but we'll try.

25 Nov 2008, 3:54 am
Psycho mantis has a gas mask, which would be really uncomfortable. Currently marth is the best option, bu i dont know him much. Or this lester dude...

Hyuga Neji
25 Nov 2008, 4:05 am
don't you wanna go as someone you know?

But then you could watch that anime.

I don't think my dads going with us on the train this time, so I might be able to Sunday. Can't afford the ticket and entery cost bothdays. Probably do sat.

Grey Fox
25 Nov 2008, 7:49 am
Whichever is easier.

Anyway Wolf i PMed you some vids, let me know if you wanna watch the whole thing. ;P

25 Nov 2008, 11:52 am
Yay? Will watch them in a moe. For the lolz. Now all of u remember rule 26. Im not sure what that is cause i forget, but remember it!

F0x find it out!

Woah! Yore dad isnt coming? Oh noes! Beware of the tramps...they may raep u! >_>

Grey Fox
25 Nov 2008, 1:50 pm
well i think 26 is the one about any thread going off topic in the end. that or the one that says to always question peoples sexual preferences.

Rape? not likely. dinner at burger king again? Super fries? Quite likely.

Hyuga Neji
25 Nov 2008, 2:58 pm
Aw man they where good! And wolf couldnt finnish his, so i ate them!

No, he isnt coming. im ment to be working that weekend. HOPE i get the days off. But my dad is working as well.Arg. knowing us, we will get the wrong tickets. i mean to london victoria. we will be fine after that.

Now i want him to go to london with us!

And i thought 26 was the sexual preferance.

Grey Fox
25 Nov 2008, 3:03 pm
Look it up, I don't care enough to check.

And if you're working, then you have to either check if you can clear one day and do over time the day before/after or see if you can clear the entire week-end.

Hyuga Neji
25 Nov 2008, 3:10 pm

Ive done that, but im not sure if its ok.

You said you didnt care to check last time, but you had most of the directions.

I know where to go from London victoria

Im thinking of going as reno, from FF7

26 Nov 2008, 3:49 am
Those super fries were delicious! But i was already half full with something, might have been the popcorn or something i dont no. If i dint give them too u i wouldnt of been able to eat ma burger. The fries never end...!!!

We are going their again damn it!!

Hyuga Neji
26 Nov 2008, 12:48 pm
Yeh. you where bieng greedy and got a burger, when me and Grey only got Chips.

We probably wont go there again. the only reason we whent there that time was because we where waiting for my dad. and he isnt going. there fore, no need to go there.

Grey Fox
26 Nov 2008, 1:51 pm
Well if you guys can do two days, I'd be able to do Tseng one day, and Asch the bloody, the other day.

26 Nov 2008, 2:09 pm
Great? I suppose we will get back home quicker. Anyway once im done here im going to find some ideas for cosplay. Im currently doind this instead of my french work so why not put it off the work some more!

Hyuga Neji
26 Nov 2008, 2:39 pm
Because thats retared. SRSLY. Its GCSE. thats more important.

I think i can do both days. its just....Wont two days be boring?

And theres the arcwardness of going back to our home, then going back. would be better if someones parents could go, so we could go in a hotel.

26 Nov 2008, 3:35 pm
Two days wouldn't be boring, just to add to your plans.

The first day would be heaving full of people and will have lots of events. The second day will have less people and less events, leaving more time to buy memorabilia.

Also, there'd be different people and different cosplays to see n both days.


Oh, and you might see me if you go Sunday.

Maybe that last point is the most enticing? xD

Hyuga Neji
26 Nov 2008, 5:07 pm
Ohhh. i do wanna see Quick. Depends. i dont realy wanna go on sunday, if i have school the next day.

27 Nov 2008, 3:47 am
Yeah. I probs wont be able to go both days though. Quick, u could just use mah own airline to fly u too the mcm expo on saturday.

This airline may or may not exist...

Grey Fox
27 Nov 2008, 5:45 am
hmmm, well closer to may new opportunities may arise, we should see if we can get an adult to accompany us, so we can use the hotel's. Would Your older brother be old enough to count?

27 Nov 2008, 7:12 pm
omg theres actualy an anime event in london in 2009 i wanna go where is its when is it where did i leave my mage robes 8-P

28 Nov 2008, 3:00 am
London MCM Expo - Home (http://www.londonexpo.com/)

All the information is there. Although, at the moment it's just saying about what a success the October Expo was. It should update nearer to May.

Grey Fox
28 Nov 2008, 12:39 pm
Yep, but still it's something to do if we talk about it early ;P

29 Nov 2008, 4:46 am

I still can't guarantee a specific day and I won't be able to until nearer the time.

Hyuga Neji
29 Nov 2008, 6:22 am
nah. My older brother or dad can't go. And I don't want my mum to.

I'm still trying for both days. I would need an adult though.

I blame quick.

29 Nov 2008, 6:59 am

snipes Neji's mum.

Problem solved. Now just eat one of those age pills out of Negima and we're all set! xD

Hyuga Neji
29 Nov 2008, 3:56 pm
Hmmmm. That would be usefull. I see weve been moved into The asian Culture subforum. Cool.

snipes quick.

There. problem solved. No more troublesome quick!

30 Nov 2008, 4:23 am

gets up and brushes off the blood.

aims the Death Star at Neji and fires it.

Hyuga Neji
30 Nov 2008, 6:04 am
Holy shit! Reading that post wasted seconds of mah life. So quick, when u finding out what day you going? April?

needs to buy his wig

Grey Fox
30 Nov 2008, 9:29 am
This isn't very asian culture, it's only partially anime, it's happening in london, and it's mostly gonna be with another video game sponsor that people will be around.

Meh, oh well. Still though I can defiantly do both days, IF I'm not alone, because otherwise it isn't worth the trip, or the hotel ;P

Ebenezer Shittingway
30 Nov 2008, 10:58 am
Meh, I've been going to the expo for the last couple of years, and it generally ends up being nothing but a gathering for all the naruto fans on the planet.

If anyone see's someone extremely epic strutting his shit and drop-kicking narutards, it'll probably be me.

Also, keep a lookout for the most insanely hot Haruhi cosplayer ever. Me and Kenji saw her last year, and it's a welcome change from all the obese 40 year old women dressing as lucky star characters.

Hyuga Neji
30 Nov 2008, 12:14 pm
Woat. Emp lives in the UK?

Naruto is good, but i wouldnt go there just for it. I go there, because it was the only Anime Convention thats close to me. I must keep an eye out for the "Strutting Narutard killer"

Grey Fox
30 Nov 2008, 12:37 pm
Well the amount of naruto headbands and cosplay did disappoint me alot, but the video game cosplays were better ;P Especially that guy who was the skull kid in Majora's Mask.

30 Nov 2008, 3:09 pm
I'll probably find out, like, Feburary-March-ish time.

Emp is British? Wow....You sound American.

I don't think MCM counts as a con to be fair. More like a giant crap market.

Well the amount of naruto headbands and cosplay did disappoint me alot, but the video game cosplays were better ;P Especially that guy who was the skull kid in Majora's Mask.

I remember a MM cosplayer back in the earlier expo this year (march-ish?). Was pretty good. Best was seeing a bunch of bleach cosplayers get kicked off the train for acting like idiots on the tube.

PROTIP: Waving foam weapons on a train that blew up less than a year ago is a BAD ****ING IDEA.

Emp is British? Wow....You sound American.

Troll is a universal language :o


Which expo you going to next year Kenji?

30 Nov 2008, 9:21 pm
May is def. for now. Havent decided where ill stay tho - depends.

Hyuga Neji
1 Dec 2008, 3:30 pm
Yeh. im cosplaying as Reno from FF7.
I like Naruto, but even i thought it was alot.

1 Dec 2008, 3:36 pm
Reno? That guy made me laugh...

Hyuga Neji
9 Dec 2008, 5:07 pm
Hes Great. Should be here in 1 to 11 Days.

I didnt want to run the risk of my cosplay Coming after the expo, so i ordered it EXTREAMLY early. :D

Grey Fox
9 Dec 2008, 5:31 pm
yar yar, I'm bettging it was 1-11 months ;P

Hyuga Neji
9 Dec 2008, 5:34 pm

You wish!!!

1 to 11 Days. Cant wait. Im gonna look like reno on christmas. :D

15 Dec 2008, 3:33 am
But why Neji?

Why wear red hair on Christmas, when you could wear something festive? :(

Hyuga Neji
16 Dec 2008, 5:14 pm
because it looks better than my current hair!

So quick. Decided if you where going sat yet?

Grey Fox
10 Jan 2009, 7:19 pm

Hyuga Neji
29 Jan 2009, 5:13 pm
He still doesnt know. Said he would know nearer the time. My cosplays almost compleat. Also, GF. Kean's Getting a cosplay, But wolf wont.

29 Jan 2009, 5:24 pm
Just to confirm, I won't know for a while.

The girl who's organising our group fails at organization.

Dave Masaki
29 Jan 2009, 7:45 pm
Looks interesting but I doubt I'd be able to go, I'll still try though.

Grey Fox
29 Jan 2009, 7:52 pm
Wolf has less choice than he thinks.

Lloyd Irving or GTFO.

Hyuga Neji
1 Feb 2009, 11:55 am
Lloyd Irving or GTFO.

Quoted so wolf knows his choices.

Quick. Im not complaining, But why dont you organise it?

For us, Its kinda a joint effort between Me and GF to get there.

Also, Is keen still going?

finaly, Jake said he would tell damien that its the 23rd, If he asks.

1 Feb 2009, 3:26 pm
I'm not organising it because....

Well, my parents won't come and I don't want them to. But my friend's mum will, which makes it easier to traverse the underground.

Also, things have been far too busy recently to even think about such things.

Hyuga Neji
1 Feb 2009, 4:04 pm
Your friends mum is going to an anime convention?

How fun will that be?

1 Feb 2009, 4:23 pm
We make sure that she either:

A) Sits in the corner and looks after our stuff


B) Goes off for a cup of coffee.

Hyuga Neji
1 Feb 2009, 4:33 pm
My dad went to london with us, last time. But he and my brother went into london, we went into the center.

4 Feb 2009, 3:57 am
Ha forgot about this. Costs too much to cosplay and i want to save my money for buying stuff.

Find me a cheap place to get the FULL outfit. Then i will be bothered to get it and go as this Lloyd dude. And maybe even grow my hair. Forget that last part. >_>

Dave Masaki
4 Feb 2009, 1:17 pm
If I go, I know who I'll be cosplaying as, the only thing left for me to do is get my hair cut a little bit shorter and dye it.

Grey Fox
4 Feb 2009, 2:10 pm
Wolf overestimates the cost of being costly with added cost.

AKA: Fame winning costs

Hyuga Neji
5 Feb 2009, 3:45 am
Yeah. Wolf sucks.

But how much Is cheep? 50?

That gives you 50 for the buying.

I brought 30, and I got enough. Plus, you didn't spend all that money you brought anyway.

And who be you cosplaying as, dave?

Dave Masaki
5 Feb 2009, 10:00 am
Hayate Ayasaki from Hayate The Combat Butler. It's pretty simple and it will be my first time so I don't wanna go with anything too difficult.

Grey Fox
5 Feb 2009, 1:34 pm
You made us buy stuff, and you took wolf's popcorn, then made me split my Superfries with you!

Hyuga Neji
5 Feb 2009, 2:27 pm
AHH! I never took any of wolfs popcorn! You got it when i had split off from you! -_-

And, yeah. i took your chips. But why are you pointing these things out! now he's never going to cosplay!

If he doesnt, im not going round with him. Even keen is going in cosplay!

Grey Fox
8 Feb 2009, 7:57 pm
I only took half the bag then we met up with you and we both took his popcorn! and his pocky, and just about everything else in that massive bag of sweets.


Hyuga Neji
3 Apr 2009, 4:49 pm
No. i didnt have his popcorn. Because when i met up with you you said you had eaten it. then i was upset, Because i wanted some.

Anyway. I only need the boots and jacket for my cosplay. and i have swiming goggles for it, but i dont think there good enough....

Grey Fox
4 Apr 2009, 1:52 am
I already explained that reno doesn't wear swimming goggles, but do what you can first.

Hyuga Neji
19 May 2009, 1:49 pm
just wanted to remind you all that its this saturday.

Grey Fox
1 Jun 2009, 1:30 pm
just wanted to remind you all that it's last month.
