MCM London Comic Con October 2016

Heyya Everyone!

So the MCM weekend has passed, and I’ve had such a fantastic time! On the Saturday I was Blind Mag from the movie Repo! A Gentic Opera. This costume was a lot of fun to make, and I loved the overall look, however the boots I had which were screen accurate, were absolute agony to walk in after about 2 hours. I brought a pair of thigh high flat boots with me to change into, but by then the damage was done. We only stayed till about 1:30pm, so unfortunately I missed meeting up with a lot of people, even though I kept an eye out for them. The only person I was able to locate was Ash from AMG Piper Props, we had been Snapchatting our builds to each other in the lead up to MCM, and I was desperate to see his Charizard armour! It was incredible up close, the shading and texture on it was so detailed, I was in awe!

I was there with my friend Emma, who was wearing the Melisandre dress she had commissioned me to make, and she looked amazing in it!! We will be organising a photoshoot together once I finish off my Daenerys dress for May 2017.

On the Sunday,  I went as Black Widow from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I absolutely ADORE this costume, I am so so proud of how it turned out! Not only is it incredibly accurate, it is immensely comfortable for all day wear, and I can see myself bringing her to many future cons!

I managed to find a lot more people this time round, and managed to attend a meet up of the other page models in ItsTheNerdyLife. We have all become so close, like a family unit, and it was amazing to meet them all in person. We have a few cosplay plans together for next year, and I am so excited to see how they all turn out!

Danny, the founder of ItsTheNerdyLife, took some amazing photos of our group, and of my costume – and I absolutely adore how they have turned out!! He is a great photographer, and such a lovely person, we had an awesome chat whilst shooting, and I cannot wait to work with him again!

One of my highlights was the Iron Throne Experience, who were at MCM. I sat on the Throne with my Black Widow cosplay, and the pictures were awesome! I really hope they come back for the May MCM, as I will be wearing my Daenerys cosplay, complete with Drogon, and it would make for one hell of a picture!

Overall it was another successful MCM, and I am looking forward to May and October next year! I will soon be starting my builds for 2017, So be sure to follow my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, to follow them as I work!

Much Love,

MCM London October 2016 Cosplay Plans

Heyya  Everyone!

As a lot of time has passed since my last update, we are almost at the weekend of MCM October, which I am attending next Saturday and Sunday.
As I am still on my gap year from work, I have had extra time to care for my family, sort the plans for our wedding, and work on my costumes – and as such, both my costumes for the convention are ready with over a week to go!

I will be attending MCM London on the Saturday as Blind Mag from Repo! A Genetic Opera, and the Sunday as Black Widow from Captain America: Winter Soldier.

However, if the weather stays as cold as it has been the past few days, I will be bringing Black Widow on both days. I will post an update on my Instagram and Facebook the morning of MCM to show which costumes I am wearing on the day.

I also have some of my commissions there aswell, Emma will be wearing the Melisandre and Maya costumes she commissioned from me, posts on how I made them, and what she will look like should you want to keep an eye out for her, will be posted soon.

If you see me at the convention, please come up and say Heyy, as I love meeting you all!

Much Love,

Sabrina
