MCM2015_London-city_New-1024x927

You made us laugh, you wowed us with your awesome cosplays, and you made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside: throughout the weekend, you’ve been sharing your thoughts, quips, photos and feelings with us on Twitter, and we’ve loved sharing your comic con experiences with you. Here are some of our favourite tweets from the MCM London Comic Con weekend – enjoy, and see if you can spot yours!
We started out hardly knowing what was coming – the whole affair was shrouded in mystery!
But once the doors opened, the silence couldn’t last long, and it soon became clear what we’d got ourselves in for:
flash cars…

…guilt-free swag (don’t mind if we do!)…

(I think Senpai noticed him)
…and, er – brain scans…

This year’s MCM London Comic Con was, as ever, a small, intimate gathering of a few select friends…

Not to worry though – this should do the trick…

Well, exactly.
Of course, there’s always time for a Storm Trooper selfie…
…but it’s not every con you get to see a baby Vader…

…or an Ewok massage, for that matter.
Just whatever you do, don’t get on the Empire’s bad side.

Lots of you enjoyed the Fitz/Hunter double act in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel…
…while others geeked out over Felicia Day’s appearance.

NGL, we were pretty excited too.
Sometimes, it’s just great when panels take an unexpected turn…

…or when anything takes an unexpected turn, for that matter.

To be honest, it happens a lot.

Overall, I don’t think we couldn’t sum it up better than this guy if we tried.

MCM Comic Con? Boring? These guys say, “Neigh”.
Like a mini version of the con itself, these cosplayers were one happy family.

After all, in the wise words of Felicia Day…
Though perhaps Syfy said it best.

It’s like hugging a warm marshmallow.
Gosh – let’s just go all out and hug a whole damn family of marshmallows!

(Wait, no – that last one’s not a Baymax…is it…?)
Yes folks, this is a place where even sworn enemies will lay aside their differences in the name of fun and fandom.

That said, we’ll confess we still felt a little nervous around this guy…
…and Iron Man didn’t really seem like he was in a group hug sort of mood, either.

Even Felicia had some reservations about certain aspects of Comic Con culture…
But ultimately, it takes all sorts, and we’re proud of MCM’s comic con diversity.

It’s always the unusual and unique costumes we love to see most…

…though some require a little more caution than others.

This year, we liked your work so much that we made this stop-motion showcase of it!
Comic Con is always the perfect place to meet up with like-minded people and celebrate your passions, regardless of your fandom.

(We particularly enjoyed these Disney cosplays: in fact, they made it just like being in Disneyland…on acid, without the rides…!)
Often, it’s the surprise encounters that result in the beginnings of beautiful friendships. Say hello to the new White Power Ranger!

And naturally, there’s no better place to chill out together and make new friends than at the MCM Partay.
Ain’t no party like an MCM Party – that’s for sure! However, it’s not just you guys who got to hang out and have fun – some of the stars enjoyed meeting up, too.

Sisters doin’ it for themselves!
On a more serious note, some amongst you had, like, important things to say…

…and lovely, sweet, adorable things…
Everybody now – awwwwww!
Of course, we always love hearing nice things from the noobs…

…especially on their birthdays!
Birthdays all round!

As the convention drew to a close, many of us began to feel the exhaustion setting in…

…leading one bright spark to suggest the introduction of segways at October’s event.
Fortunately, one guy was lucky enough to blag a sweet ride home.

Looks like no one told him it doesn’t actually move.
As the ExCel Centre emptied out, Team Vidfest did their own photo sign off…
…as did Team Tomska…

…and, for the first time, Team Buzz!
Not forgetting the dinosaurs, of course…

…or our friends at Tokyo Toys.
A photo from the morning after the mad weekend before. Yes, this really is what ExCel looks like when it’s not full of all you lovely people!

We know, right? But we don’t mind – we know you’ll all be back again for more, come October.
Darth Vader thanks you all for your participation.

Until next time, con-goers! May the force be with you.
