Not long to go now till MCM Expo! Here at Cake HQ I’m busy tagging t-shirts, ironing and getting everything together ready for the weekend.
MCM Expo is a huge anime, manga, games and comic con at ExCel London, starting on Friday 25th May until Sunday 27th May. You can purchase early entry and weekend tickets on their website. Friday is a preview for weekend ticket holders only. Or you can turn up and get a ticket on the door for £10, for entry from 11am (children 10 and under are free, ages 11-14 are £4). Last time it was really busy on Saturday, and Sunday was a lot quieter, so if you hate crowds I’d advise going on Sunday.
I’ll be there with my two new t-shirt designs (hitting the shop this week), new button badges and as many t-shirts and prints as I can fit on a table. I’m really looking forward to it, and also to having a look round all the other stalls, trying not to spend all the takings on anime models.
If you’re going, come and say hi! I’ve made a quick map showing where I’ll be (Q11) – not sure what will be in the gaps… the official plan should be released by MCM in the next couple of days. If you’re not going, I’ll be taking loads of photos for the F-book, and maybe I can see you at another con this year. I’ll be at MCM Expo Manchester and Thought Bubble in Leeds in November. See you there!
