London MCM Comic Con – Day 3: Cosplay Cavalcade

Adam headed off to the MCM Comic Con Expo in London this weekend. This is what he saw.

Walking around London Comic Con this weekend I saw some pretty excellent cosplay. Here are some really low quality photos of some of my favourites! I promise I’ll bring a proper camera next time, rather than taking photos with my camera phone which doesn’t really do some of these costumes justice!

Black Widow, Hawkeye and Iron Man

Complete with J.J. Abrams lens flare!

Massive Dragonball group

A fair few groups met up like this and posed for photos outside the convention centre. Mr Popo looks a little terrifying.

Warhammer 40K

40k

These were ridiculous. I can’t imagine how hot they would have been inside

Judge Dredd

He’s got that sneer down

Bayonetta

20150524_142122

Excellent detail on this one

The Walking Dead – Rick and Daryl

20150524_143014

That is an ace looking Rick-beard

Mr Bubbles!

Always nice to see some Bioshock represent

Chappie

Complete with his bling

Attack on Titan – Female Titan

I think this one ended up being my favourite of the weekend. I love the added detail of the scout hanging out of the mouth

That was just a sample of the great cosplay on show at London Comic Con. It will be back in October at the Excel centre, so make sure you head along to check it out!

The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 17 – Loads of Torsos

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse. This week we briefly chat about the new not-terrible TMNT trailer, the talk of a new Predator film and what a crap name Ivy Pepper is in the new Gotham show, while Adam undersells how difficult not having working legs is and Gary has to tell a joke off air because it is far too awful.

The main talking point this week was the Liebster Award, a way of discovering new blogs by nominating those with less than 200 followers and asking them questions. Ben from the Malibros Podcast nominated us and asked us the following:

  1. What movie was the biggest disappointment for you, not the worst, the one that let you down?
  2. If you had to, would you rather lose your legs or your hands?
  3. What property would you like to be seen made into a game, be it a board, video or wargame, that hasn’t been done yet?
  4. What’s your choice of condiment to have with your fries/chips if any?
  5. What is your favourite video game that most people won’t have played?
  6. Tell me your “guilty pleasure” movie, the film that you know is terrible but you still love?

We answer these in the podcast, more or less. We will be putting up an article soon with our full answers, and our nominations for our favourite blogs to carry this on!
