MCM London Comic Con Report October 2016 - Ross

First impressions of the show? 

Like always I was blown away with the stellar display that MCM put on. Both sides of the con halls were used brilliantly. I didn't manage to see everything there over the three days of the convention but I saw a whole heck of a lot and I loved what I saw.

Did you meet anyone there? Celebs, artists, writers? 

I met with my favourite artists again, Jack Lawrence, John Paul & Jess Bove, and Lee Townsend. I saw a few more artists I have never met before including Pin Up Princess. Amazing art a couple of examples of which I will put below this...

Favourite Cosplay? 

All of Geek Mash cosplay! Pics Below:

Okay, that's cheating I'm going to say this Ursula the Sea Witch by DVN Props. She was absolutely amazing!

Favourite thing you bought?

Every time I answer this question it's always the same. This amazing and beautiful art piece of Vax'ildan and Keyleth from Geek and Sundry's Critical Role. This piece was done by the ever so talented Jack Lawrence / Jackademus.

Was there something you wished you bought but didn't?

ALL OF THE STUFF! I find that when I come to these shows I have to stick to a very strict budget otherwise I will spend all of the moneys I possess. There were several props and Figures / Statues I wanted to buy... especially the DC merchandise from the Diamond Distribution booth.

Go to any booths at the show? Try any games? 

I didn't manage to play any of the games, but I took a look at as many of the booths as possible. Great display pieces by many of the vendors etc...
Was there anything you wanted to try but missed?
I really wanted to try my hand at some of the VR experiences but the queues were really busy for them.

Anything you wish was there? 

I wish the SyFy 360 Matrix cam booth was here again. Always good fun.

Anything you tried this time you haven't normally at past MCM's? 

I attended a Marvel Comics press release show, my review of which is coming up soon. But for now I can post the cover image of the preview I received.

Favourite moment of the show? 

My favourite moment of the show by far was the Assembling of the Hipster Avengers group I took part in. An amazing group of cosplayers, some seasoned some fresh to the scene, but every one of them AMAZING! 

What would you cosplay as at future shows given the chance? 

Well, I have two plans for MCM May, Kashaw from Critical Role and another possible Avengers team up which it's theme is still being decided. Who knows Apocolypse / Mad Max Avengers? 80's Avengers?
