MCM Manchester Hello, everybody!
I'm sorry I haven't been active recently. But, well, me and my butt-buddy Zelanious
went to MCM Manchester held in the UK, last week!
We went as a pair, me as Ness and him as Jeff from the Earthbound series.
Here's a picture of the original characters, just in case you don't know them. And now, here we are!
We didn't bring any props, this time, because our outfits were assembled pretty quickly. Still, maybe it doesn't apply to me, but Zelanious
really fitted the character and looked great!
Well, we started off in awful, stormy conditions. The ink on our tickets was running in the rain, but it didn't seem to matter upon entry. They look like psychedelic posters now, haha!
There were puddles everywhere, and we only could share a small, one-person umbrella. This resulted in me having to cling like an old lady in order for us both to keep ourselves covered.
We eventually got in and immersed ourselves in the overpriced merchandise. Compared to last year, we weren't openly recognised as much. But we saw a lot of amazing cosplays too, it was really nice to admire the other people's work!
At YCC, I met an awesome Ness, whom I bumped into once again at MCM, but as Lucas! Which was really nice.
We ate a lot of sweets, that's for sure. About 4 boxes of pocky, 3 Ramune, 2 lemon drinks, a box of pretz...Gosh. I can feel the cavities emerging! ;;;
But, regardless, sharing food was pretty cosy and nice.
But then, Zelanious
decided to be a HUGE GENEROUS DORK
and buy us adorable, matching Alpacasso plushies. Mine has a little veil, and his a bow-tie. He also bought us matching poop-pencil-sharpeners, which was obvs mega romantic.
Not to mention everything else he bought for me and wasted his money on.
he is a cutie, srsly
Although, I did
want to buy some K-Pop albums and merch, but...I was dragged away for being too magnetised to all of the Super Junior stuff.
Basically, I really really
enjoyed my time there. We basically just loafed around all day as two dorky characters, but I can't wait for the next convention. Thank you to Zelanious
for being a total babe
and going with me as a cute Jeff.
Thank you very much for reading, have a great day! And, if you attended, I'd love to hear from you. : >
