[342] 'What's your favourite piece of cosplay...?', MCM micro-cast

Cosplayers, we salute you.

I'm still due to write up my piece on last weekend's MCM Expo, but in the meantime, here is a tasty morsel that is far more interesting. Towards the end of Sunday, I prowled through the Comics Village, AKG mike in hand, asking all and sundry the question 'what was your favourite piece of cosplay of the Expo?'.

As bizarre, awe-inspiring, resourceful cosplay is one of the MCM's main draws, the responses were quite varied - sometimes tittersome, sometimes overcome with respect for those hardcore fans that brave dehydration to sport their mad costumes.

Since the Wild Tyme podcast is currently experiencing something of a sophomore slump, I have edited the snippets together, slapped on a soundtrack and decided to put it up for your listening pleasure. Call it a pseudo-cast!
