MCM Cosplay Zone

The runners-up from our Cosplay Zone at this weekend’s MCM Expo

Princess Leia Cosplay

Entrants included characters from games, anime, manga, movies and comics, and even this remarkably realistic Vic Mignogna lookalike. Although he didn’t give his name. (You idiot: that is Vic Mignogna – Ed). We’ll be uploading some of our favourites over the weeks to come, and also announcing the winners in our Best Male, Best Female and Best Group categories at the end of this week on Friday. Thanks to all the costumers who took part; you make Expo such a fun experience for us. And keep your eyes on this blog for more pictures from the weekend.

But first, here are our picks of the runners up: each of you will be getting a prize from Manga entertainment.

Best Princess Leia Slave Girl is shown above. No, not Vic. The other one. A lovely, polite young lady who gives Carrie Fisher a run for her money in the “who can be the most glamorous Rebel Alliance spy” stakes.

He-Man Cosplay

Best Group Runner Up: She-Ra and He-Man. An amazing effort that captures our fond childhood memories of the great muscled one and his glamorous cousin. Extra points were earned for He-Man’s close likeness to Angus Deayton. GREAT EFFORT. Some prizes will be sent out to them next week, for the honour of Grayskull.

Arrancars Bleach Cosplay

Best Dr. Who: Great pose! Allons-y!

Jean Gray Cosplay

We are also happy to see the cosplay scene widen to cater to some well known Marvel and DC comic characters such as Jean Gray, above, and the less well known, but very hip cartoon character Freakazoid, below.


And an honourable mention for this fantastically slinky Mystique.

Mystique Cosplay

We really enjoyed seeing some of the amazing original designs from the UK Steampunk scene. This October saw costumes that have really upped the ante. Special mention must go to the one below. A very cool-looking hand-made coat, which would not look too shabby on the high street.


But just think, if this is how good the runners-up are, imagine what amazing winners we’ll be announcing at the weekend…
