Thank you to everyone who came to see us at MCM Expo Birmingham Comic Con at the NEC. We enjoyed making Birmingham more colourful!
We had a fun weekend and saw a lot of unusual things, including a titan (from Attack on Titan) wearing lolita, and Walter White holding hands with Princess Jasmine…
The stand looked great with a new style display, with the t-shirts looking neater and new signs. Our aim is to be the most colourful stand at the show!
But the most popular t-shirt of the weekend was the mighty All the Best Stuff is from Japan – it can’t be beaten! We’ve got it in kids sizes too now, for cute mini-otaku.
We said hello to our friends JPU Records, suppliers of fine Japanese music, and picked up some new CDs: Boom Boom Satellites and An Cafe (which is just the type of hyper J-pop we love!).
It was also good to see Soapasaurus, who make geeky soaps, and now lipsyls too. The bubblegum and chocolate varieties smell delicious. Do you recognise the Cakes with Faces illustrations on their Japanese soaps? These were a commission from last year, for their Hyper Japan range.
To see the rest of the photos, including more of the stand, cosplays and other nerdy stuff from around the comic con, head over to the Cakes with Faces Facebook page. If you went to the show, we’d love to see photos of you with your new stuff!
And remember you can get everything you see on our stand from the online shop, delivered to your door in double-quick time.
