Geeks and Zombies

Two blogs in one day! Aren’t you a lucky reader? The last two weeks have been wonderfully busy for me. I went to MCM London ComiCon the other week and it was amazing! Emphasis on Amazing! Too be fair, I wasn’t that impressed with the merchandise section but then I think it was because I was hugely distracted my all the fantastic costumes that were floating around. In fact for the second day, we didn’t even bother going in to the expo just hung out outside and took pictures of the cosplayers. I was more than happy to do that all day.
Check out some of the pictures, please excuse my amature photography skills, I was far too distracted to be able to fully focus on the photo set up. I really dont feel like I did justice to half the outfits I saw. Every time I saw one amazing character, I’d blink and there would be another one going the other direction and I couldn’t see half as much as I wanted. Every time I turned around there would be another great cosplayer. There will be better shots next time, that I can guarantee.

The other fun even that happened was a Zombie night (actually a friends birthday), that one amused me for a good week before. Playing around with make up and I even got my hands on some liquid latex to make a couple of fake wounds. Ripped up an out fit and covered it in blood, nothing to fancy just an old pair of jeans and a pale t-shirt. Paled my face a little and added hollowing make up, then stuck a gaping wound on my face and arms, mussed my hair to a giant mess and done….

I really liked the look, the bouncer even called me scary. So result for the night. Though I will say I did notice a rather big difference between my make up and the more theatrical styles out in the club, in the dark my lost its impact so the lesson on the night was the darker it is the more you need. Eh. Still love it and had fun so all is good.
