Excel London mcm expo 2011

Hey blogger dudes and dudeettes it's kinda been a while. Yesterday is a great day cause me, one of my old buddies from my old college and some of her friends from uni went to east London Excel. The event is an all for people who love Comic books, films, Anime/manga and cosplay, so basically it's all aged grouped or people who love this stuff and me and my old/new friends like em lol. So it's starts of with the morning where I wake up, took a shower then waited for one of my old college friends known as Samantha, she meet me at my place and went to the train so we can talk and catch up on certain stuff. Once we were at the dlr we had to get off at East India which is close to the excel, so she was looking for a ATM machine and she couldn't get any money out cause she says that the machine in the shop needs to pay like an extra £1.60 to take her money, so then she went kinda pissed but we managed to get on the train that we wanted cause we need to switch different trains to the excel. At our reaching point Samantha needed to call her uni friends know as Reese, he's a cool dude of course, once she made the call we somehow looked up where there at the oyster ticket point (where theres a ticket machine to swipe in and out on every journey). So then we head inside and get the ticket for the event. At the LOOONGEST queues of queues like the first quarter Samantha still needed some money, so she asked me to get some money for her at the atm so she can pay the ticket for herself. She gave me her card and I had to go half way of the excel building just to get downstares and once I went downstares to queue I was kinda getting frustrated cause I needed to get back to the queue quicker, but I knew that is impossible. So I wated like 30 to 35 minutes, got the money out and had to walk the way up stares to get back to where I started. So I was in the queue, by myself and I wated at least 45 to an hour just so I can get to my friends, but the problem is that the queue was sooooo bloody long like at least 5 rows. In probably the first I had to call Samantha where she and her friends are and they told me that they are close to the ticket booth, 20 minutes later she called me to tell where I am and I was probably still at the first row. Second row later she kept calling me like more then 10 times to actually jump out the queue, so I could meet them close to the booth. 15th call and it was my last chance so I could jump out the queue and walk all the way to the way and pass 5 long rows (without people get pissed off just I jump and cross the line). Then somehow I happened to jump out and managed to meet Samantha at to where theres a number 2 on the wall, one of her friends somehow let the staff know that I'm in the line and told them that I had sickle cell (they look out for me but never knew there super nice) so we walked to one of the staff got the wrist-bands and went through, then I had to pay sams other friend melvin a tenner cause he payed my ticket so at least thats looking out for me. Ok once thats done we headed straight to the expo, looked around and went to different booths. I wanted to see an UK anime artist Sonia Leong for the second time (I last meet her in person back in 09) but she was no where to be found, so we went out and looked around some more. After that we had lunch, went to the atm to take money out for myself and still a bloody long queue. Got 3 things (which you see some photo's) went to see Sams other friend and heading straight home. God it was fun but I didn't see Sonia Leong :'''''(, but never mind will probably see her (maybe in October) and hopfully see someone else if I get a chance. Ok I need to stop typing cause my hands are starting to hurt a bit and show you the pics. Sorry no skecthes/finished works as of yet I'm trying to complete my animation works just so I can get it done right before the end of year show (hope I will finish it). Hope you like the photo's, it's not that many but just short and sweet.
Take care :).
