Michael's UKGE 2018 Diary – Meeple Like Us
One of the most striking images I saw during the UK Games Expo 2018 was the procession of cosplayers making their way into the centre on the Saturday. The dedication that goes into cosplay is genuinely impressive. I watched pass before me a parade of Harley Quinns and Jokers, Imperial Stormtroopers and Sith Lords, and a hatchet wielding Jason. There were kids too, one dressed up as Iron Man and another as the terminator with a mini mini-gun. A guy dressed up as a fifties greaser hefted a baseball bat as I passed. If I wasn't already aware what was going on I'd probably think it would be a good time to take some time away from the city.
