I was a bit overwhelmed by the scale of MCM London Comic Con last year so it was good to spread it out over two days this time.
After picking up my pass, I headed straight for the PopAsia area to check out all the kawaii stalls! Tofu Cute and Artbox always have a great range of cute items and they didn’t disappoint. I was very tempted by the Jinbe San plush but just bought a few smaller items instead. I really liked how the gashapon were in separate plastic boxes so I could hunt around for the particular light up Rilakkuma ice cream I wanted!
I loved the backpacks at the Tokyo Toys stall which had a transparent window and panel to display badges – such a great idea! I got a blue one and personalised it with some of my badges and pins.
It was great to see SCK faves Cakes With Faces and The Fuzzballs again and they both had cool new products to show off including an awesome varsity jacket and cute mugs.
Some of my other kawaii faves were the beautiful artwork of Killer Bunny and cute character shoes by Dragonfly Heels. Something Kawaii! had lots of Neko Atsume items and I also found a new Neko Dango to add to my collection!
I am a huge Webcomic Name fan so my personal highlight of the weekend was meeting the lovely and talented Alex Norris and having them draw me a personalised comic.
Other highlights were having my photo taken with the Master Sword in Korok Forest and seeing all the amazing costumes on show including a motorised King of Red Lions, two Chewbaccas and a whole squadron of storm troopers. Check out the photo album on the SCK Facebook page for more.
I had such a fun time at MCM London Comic Con and can’t wait to go back next year! There are more events coming up this year around Europe so look out for one near you.
Nicolette is the sister of Marceline and is also totally obsessed with everything kawaii! She enjoys crafting with felt, dressing up in cute outfits, playing Animal Crossing and eating cake.

Aaawww, that Jinbe San plush looks so cute!^^
So adorable. I love this character (I got a lovely Jinbe San handbag two weeks ago).
I hope I’ll find some at the next conventions I’m going.

It’s always hard finding Jinbe San items so I was excited to see that plush! I do have a Jinbe San card holder plush that Marceline bought for me in Japan and it’s super cute 😊

I love what you did with your backpack! Super adorable! I’m going to have to do that with a bag. I’m sure it keeps them safer that way.

Thanks! I have so many cute badges and pins I never wore as I was scared of losing them so this bag is the perfect way to display my faves 👍
