Glasgow Comic Con Fun


Hey every cutie, How are you all doing?
Last weekend I was through in Glasgow, I decided last month to get a ticket for the Glasgow comic con and check it out. I have not been to this event before. Also I promised to the Marshmallow Dreams Maids who had a stall there to borrow my instant Camera for taking cute photos with the customers and con goers. I did not dress up as I find travel and lugging a kit about with me is bad enough. But I was pretty colourful in my oufit, yuno just keeping it Kawaii. 
Any how everything got off to a good start from meeting cosplayer's at my local station but when I got to station for my second train, it seemed the trains were all messed up- Gahh!! But not only mine but my Lolita friends trains got delayed and cancels too? ehh!?
Lucky for me I got to Glasgow with no further problems and meet up with my friend at the station to then head to the event and meet up with more friends. Because we were running late we seemed to skip having to wait in line and were able to walk in get our events wrist band with out hanging about in a line for ages which was pretty good as the event itself looked pretty busy. 
Within the space of a few minutes I bumped into many folks I already knew with was pretty cool as well as meeting a fellow photographer, the event was spread out over 3 buildings, once we explored them all, found the maids to hand over the camera , we then had a drink and snack and then explored again for a bit. I found most folks were in the main place for buying merch and comics, this was much more a western Comic convention however the cosplays were not limited to that as I spied a few anime cosplayers.

Before I knew it we were heading off for lunch then returned back to the event as we wanted to stay for the cosplay competitions, on our way we spotted a stunning cosplay. Of Maleficent so I asked if was cool to take her photo with the lolita's - she was soo cool , we also encouraged her to join in the cosplay contest. 






 We also meet up with fellow lolitas and undercover Maids  at the event too. It was rather odd seeing them in Yukatas instead of their lolita or maid outfits! hehe

I got many photos from the event and the cosplay contest /masquerade. So I will share them with this link here. Photo's found here!

Over all I had a great time , I just had great company with me and met so many familair faces it was just so nice. I found it a bit hard to take photos at this event cause one I was using my new lens and second cause I was having to much fun. Because I have a HUGE event later this months, yes Hyper Japan!! I tried to avoid spending lots of money. huhuhuh. But I did by myself a wee something - a Funko Fluttershy and a pink GCC pin. I also took some fun instant photos too. After the event and seeing the all the entered cosplays four of us went out to get some bubble tea, something I have not had before it was so nice, am really happy they showed me and helped me pick my first bubble tea. I think I will be making a point to get one next time am in glasgow again.
After getting our drinks we spilt up and we headed for our train, It was nice to have some company on the train and because saturday was the day that Sailor moon Crystal was released , and both me and Layla being Sailor moon fans, We sat on the train watching it on my Phone haha!!
