For those who didn’t know, I was away for the weekend for MCM Comic Con London for October 2018. I was fun. I met a lot of cosplayers, filmed by vlog and just enjoyed the nice quite time away from the troubles of my life and in an environment where I was surrounded by like-minded people who shared the same love for movies, videogames, comics and manga as me.
This was the first time, ever since I have been attending Comic Cons that I cosplayed for two days. Since, it was a three day event, I was able to squeeze two days of cosplay and one day for filming. On the Friday, I was dressed as ‘Bloodsplatter Mafiaso Deadpool’ and on the Sunday, I was dressed as ‘Mafiaso Deadpool in Black’. I took some photos as well which you can see below.
The last two times that I went to MCM Comic Con London, I used the trains because they were quick and the travel did not take a lot out of me. It was one Virgin Train from Manchester to London and back. There were no train switches, no hassle – just a straight non-stop journey from one end to another but recently, I have had some financial issues and instead of using a train, I decided to take a coach.
The two and a half hour journey on a train took me six hours to get into London. That does not even include the extra travel after that. I had to go from the coach station to the train station, navigate the complicated underground trains and tubes while making sure I catch the right one and then walk up to the house where I was supposed to stay. The entire journey took me about seven hours. I left from Manchester at 5:30 in the morning and checked in my Airbnb at around 12:30 noon.
The travel by coach was smooth and there were no issues there but because the journey took so long, I was beat by the time I got there.
It was worth it as you can see it in my vlog below.
On the Monday when I checked out, I did not reach my home till 22:00 and all I needed by then was my warm bed and some good night’s sleep.
But unfortunately, everything that has a beginning has an end and now I am back to the battle station and ready to resume my battles as usual. There are more videos I need to make. I wrote the script for one video before I left. I need to record the voiceover for it and work my magic in Shotcut to get it out on YouTube.
There are a couple of more videos that I am planning but they will take some time and I do not want to rush in.
I just wanted to share with you what I have been through recently and just wanted to let you know that I need be back to my rant videos real soon.
Peace out, people and stay awesome.
