Hello again! I’m back with another Cosplay Round Up – you might remember my article from October last year, where I wandered along to the Square Enix Meet Up (arranged by the lovely people over at SE Cosplay) and took some wonderful photos of everyone’s hard work. Please see below for a fraction of the amazing cosplayers at the most recent MCM.

And finally, the two together!

It was truly a privilege to get together with so many wonderful cosplayers this past weekend; the amount of effort, time, and skill they put into their cosplays is truly astounding and shows just how much passion they’ve put into not just they’re hobbies, but for video games in general. It’s great to see how mainstream the industry is becoming because it’s attracting fans from far and wide.

I’ll be back for October’s MCM with some more photos, some more talent, and hopefully, more new friends!
