A couple of weeks ago I attended the London Anime Convention in London’s busy Holloway Road. The venue was the Rocket Centre. I’ve attended an Anime and Comic Convention before.
Actually, it started for me by my going to Britain’s and Ireland’s Next Top Model Live Show at Excel (Excel located east London Docklands area). My objective was to get some classy photos of models during the catwalk show. Little did I know that many events run on the same day at London’s Excel centre, it’s a HUGE exhibition complex easily catering for several massive events at once.
As I neared the event, traveling by tube train, I saw more and more people dressed in fantastic costumes. Some of them I recognised as Comic Characters, others were new to me! Then as I entered the Excel area, the place was buzzing with, what seemed, hundreds of characters. I started to photograph them and completely forgot about the Catwalk show as these people were not only dressed up but also having a fantastic, fun time! If you ever feel in the need for some fun, a comic convention is just what’s needed.
