Even though the rain did its best to discourage us, the intrepid sketchers and Cosplayers of Manchester couldn’t be kept away and instead all rocked up the MadLab’s doors, ready to show off their outfits and take part in an evening of life drawing with an otaku twist.
It was a really great mix of genres, from Indian steampunk to cabaret style outfits, Sailor Moon to Poison Ivy and all set to a brilliant soundtrack put together by none other than our own Molly H. There was of course the usual supply of cakes and sweets to keep everyone going and the little shop where copies of the MancsterZine were available to buy.
This will be the last Cosplay Sketch-off that MancsterCon will be hosting until the convention this summer, so you have until then to brush up your skills and finish off your outfits. Thank you to everyone who has helped make the Sketch-off events so much fun. It’s been great to make new friends and meet so many creative people. Here’s to many more in the future!
