My next event will be MCM Expo London at ExCel on 26-28th October at ExCel. It’s a special event for Cakes with Faces as it’ll be the first birthday of the t-shirts and prints, and the one year anniversary of CWF’s first comic con! Although I’ve been drawing for a lot longer, and this site’s been going for several years now, my first stall at a con was MCM Expo in October 2011. Don’t tell anyone, but we didn’t really have much of a clue what we were doing at that point! I’ve learned a lot this year, and have brought in four new t-shirt designs on top of the original range of five. It’s been really great to meet so many people at cons (including people who’d already heard of CWF!) and see a following growing on Facebook (over here…).
So I hope you can come and say happy birthday at next month. MCM Expo is the biggest UK comic con, for anime and manga fans, with a lot of cosplay, game previews and general nerdery. It’s going to be really huge this time, taking up an extra hall on either side. Tickets are on sale on their site – as usual the Friday is a preview day for people with weekend tickets. If you don’t like crowds, definitely go on Friday or Sunday. It can get crazy on Saturday in the middle!
See you there…!
