Weekly Photo Challenge – Foreign

I thought long and hard about the subject foreign, lots of people were putting up pictures from travels abroad etc. I went to the MCM Expo London this weekend and found plenty of things that people would consider foreign to them. Another word for foreign is alien and this is what I have chosen to show. Taken with the fujifilm.

MCM Expo London 27.10.12

I had been looking forward to Comic Con for AGES!! I asked Reiss to join me and luckily he agreed. It was held at the Excel Centre in London and we made our way by train, running into a few Naruto characters on the way 🙂 Once there, I was absolutely amazed by the sheer amount of cosplay going on! It was phenomenal! We went and joined an excruciatingly long queue, but it has to be said it was the most interesting queue I have ever been in. It took 1.5 hours to get in but in that time I came across 2 friends from work (my secret is no longer safe!) a small child dressed as nine tails and another as Boo from Monsters Inc. I honestly saw the tallest man IN THE WORLD!!! Watched Dr Robotnik (female version) trying to maneuver with his/her pendulum. Met Death in all his glory and watched Ezio push his way through the crowds to move almost to the front just by touching everyone on the shoulder (in character to the extreme) it was absolutely hilarious!

The actual expo was packed to bursting and there was far too many people to be considered ‘safe’ as it was so hard to move around, good photos were hard to come by. Reiss and I split up for a while and I found myself following Predator around for a while desperate for a good shot – stalker I know! I also came across Bananas in Pyjamas, The Cookie Monster and Iron Man. Altogether I really enjoyed myself only thing is I am not great with crowds so I was a nervous, stressed wreck by the end (need to work on that).

All photos take with the fujifilm.

I think Harlequin needed a rest.

Steampunk is my all time favourite style and this dude is rocking it!!!
