This past weekend, MCM Comic Con descended on the ExCel Exhibition Centre in London and we were lucky enough to attend the huge event.
This huge gathering of fanboys and girls was a celebration of the comic industry, television, film and gaming formats and saw thousands of fans attend across the three days. MCM is the biggest UK based pop culture event of the year.
Special guests included Paul Bettany from Avengers Infinity War fame, Starsky and Hutch’s Paul Michael Glaser, David Soul and Antonio Vargas.
We were also lucky enough to spend some time chatting with the voice of Ash from Pokemon, Veronica Taylor and the stars of the Uncharted franchise, Nolan North and Richard McGonagle.
A huge part of these shows though isn’t just the big named guests, but the growing cosplay scene in the UK. Cosplay is huge in America and Japan but is certainly a growing strength in the UK and this expo did not fail to deliver with droves of people dressed as their favourite film, TV, game and animé characters. Our highlights included Thanos, Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy and Kevin Owen’s from WWE. The cosplay scene is a full-on community with everyone taking photos with each other, gathering costume tips and just generally being massively supportive of the hobby.
VultureHound were in attendance on Saturday and you can check out our video below which features some highlights of the event and some of the incredible cosplay which we spotted whilst there:
