I absolutely love the graphics for the Xbox game Cuphead “Don’t deal with the Devil” so myself and Emma decided this was our theme for cosplay at Sci-Fi weekender this year.
After saying never again for papier mache after Rick and Morty (such hard work) Emma broke our deal and is doing a massive Cuphead (pics will follow). I however decided to recreate my favourite boss Cagney Carnation by creating a creepy mask. This is so far – i’ll also get some pics at the event showing the whole outfit.
Well, confession time, I got a bit too carried away playing Text Adventures and Manic Miner to take hardly any cosplay photos, but there were some great costumes. The picture I was most pleased to get was the one below of the Ghostbusters, they were amazing!
So, my thoughts on the day. In many ways I liked Play Expo better than Eurogamer (shock horror), I loved all the old games and consoles and the pinball and arcade machines were great fun. It may not have had the pizazz of Eurogamer, but it had a great atmosphere and a walk down memory lane.
I am off to Play Expo in my hometown of Manchester next week and will not be cosplaying, boo I decided that as i’m only going for a day (Saturday) I would rather just go and enjoy some serious gaming.
I will however be taking pictures of the fantastic cosplayers that are there and will post some of my favourites to my blog, so if you want your picture taken come and find me – if you can recognise me without the wig haha!
