    Hey,

    Can this be a thread to state which cons everyone's going to (if any) so we can look into meeting up and stuffs?

    I know there's "Film & Comic Cons", general "Comic Cons" like Wales & Manchester, MCM's, Thought Bubble, EGX etc so let's mention all/any :)

    I'm going to both London MCMs in May & October and Manchester MCM in July for definite.

    I'll do Liverpool MCM next month if they bag a guest I just can't say no to.

    I am not sure, if anything I may do MCM Manchester, but Doki Doki is one I normally do.

    I'll be at Kitacon, and am currently trying to get panels put on there!

    I'm *hoping* to go to Sunnycon, but HOLY COW THE TRAIN IS EXPENSIVE AAAA so I'll see how that goes

    I'm also looking at Hibanacon, which is only just recently announced but is just down the way in Milton Keynes so that will be EZ PZ to get to.

    MCM comic con is very reliant on , so we shall see how finances fare!

    Yes to both. We got a double stand this year so that James can hawk his wares and the tower of waifu on one side, and UKA doing actual advertising and talking on the other half. With the usual MVM DVD/Bluray sales as well :)

    I'm not bothering with Kitacon or any of the others this year, my ex was a cosplayer/lolita so she used to drag me along.

    There's a new local one in Inverness I'll hop along to in June. Nesscon (but it'll always be Sneckon to me).

    Is Yorkshire Cosplay Con the same place again?

    I'll pull Doki Doki if you lot go and I can budget it.

    I really miss you guys. Been feeling kinda lonely so far this year. No human interaction for me at all :(

    Ditto planned for this year, taking it as it comes! I will more than likely end up at MCM Glasgow though.

    I have no plans, but it's looking like I have stability with weekends off, so I can maybe plan some stuff!

    MCM Manchester is always a bit eh. I'd like to go to London but probably would have to make it October

    As the vice president of Hibanacon I whole-heartedly support this decision. I think I've seen something from another committee member about you emailing us, but if you want to drop me an email at vicepresident@hibanacon.co.uk so we can work out some sort of UKA media presence then feel free.

    Not heard of that one until, well now. Looks interesting, not that far... Tempting.

    We've been a bit...quiet so far. We're aiming to do more of a launch push at Minamicon, and Kitacon (Hopefully on stage at both!). We've also finally got leaflets so we're looking for those to go out to Anime Societies soon.

    We are open for registrations right now, also panel submissions/gophers/masquerade entry, and we update every week with more detail on the event, as well as a monthly update on how a lot of things are going.

    Anyone else fancy it?

    Be nice to put a face to the MrChom Twitter name if nothing else...

    Nov should be safe from SLA clashing, shouldn't it?

    Oh man, I didn't know you were involved with this! I have been hassling another member of your committee, yes, haha. I'll drop you a line this evening direct.

    You deffo should push out adverts in Oxford and Cambridge, lots of underserved nerds there and both are on the X5 coach route so getting to the event is relatively easy.
