It occurred to me that there should be an events thread. I'll start!



Tokonatsu:



The festival starts at 1200 on Friday 3rd August and closes at 16:30 on Sunday 5th August. The Opening Ceremony is at 1800 on Friday 3rd August. There still seem to be a few places left and it's fantastic fun. Basically you get dressed up in cosplay, stay in a tent all weekend, eat noodles and shoot each other with water pistols. I went last year with Lady K. I cosplayed as drunken old pervert.

Other people's Photobuckets:

What else is coming up soon that anyone is going to, or been to before? </div>

I totally forgot about the Midlands Expo - it was like, last weekend... <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->



But the London Expo is in about 3 weeks yay! <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->



...when I'm in France on holibobs; damn my timing <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Anyway; for anyone else here's the website:



http://www.londonexpo.com/tickets.shtml



it's only ?8 but they do make you queue for about an hour <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->



There's LOTS of stores to buy stuff - including TokyoToys, Cosplay, probably ParaPara if you're up for it, Manga contests if you want to draw something, and a bunch of famous people to not quite get to see. </div>
