mcm expo costume madness!

I'll post some more tomorrow, but here are a choice few from today...

This is my favourite one, what a fabulous cheeky face.

This one of the two girls makes me laugh/weep, seeing the face of the guy behind them with the can of Stella.

more expo costumes!

Later I'll post pictures and links to the people I actually knew at the Expo, but here are a few more costumes:

I think this costume on the right is what I would wear if I decided to go as Extreme Audrey Niffenegger.

reporting back from expo!

Here's me selling a few bits and bobs at Gary Northfield's table at London's MCM Expo, where he kindly let me crash for a few hours. Look, he drew a picture for me!

This one's from one of my favourite Little Cutie strips, with Sophie the cygnet and Dudley the squirrel (Sophie's short-term boyfriend who is not quite up to the task). (Read it here!)

Gary asked me to draw Derek the sheep and Vern in pirate costumes, so here it is:

We had some lovely small press favourites a few tables over:

James Turner and John Aggs (both DFC mates), and London Underground Comic's Oliver Lamden. James spoke on a panel with Marc Ellerby (Ellerbisms), John Allison (Scary Go Round) and Paul Duffield (Freakangels, Manga Shakespeare).

Here's the loot I picked up:

Penelope's Far-out-mantic by Sarah Burgess; Harvest: the Collection by Asia Alfasi; The Island of Dr Moreau by Claude TC (ryclaude), The Saga ofo the European King by Tom McNally, Curtis and Terrorist 2 by Oliver Lamden, The unfeasible adventures of Beaver & Steve, volume 2 1/2: the owl of regret by James Turner, The Adventures of Ninja Bunny by Philip Spence, and I stocked up big-time on Gary Northfield's stuff: The Magic Yellow Trousers, The Funny Plastic Skelenton, Hillmonster and Dave the Dinosaur, Freddy and the Little Goldfish, The Monster who Enjoyed his Dreams, and The Little Eyeball.
