Sarah Notley to represent the UK at the 2014 EuroCosplay final in London…
With time ticking away until the EuroCosplay final at MCM London Comic Con in October, the MCM Manchester event saw the announcement of the second UK representative. That honour was awarded to Sarah Notley and her World Of Warcraft Blood Elf Paladin Redemption armour costume.
It was the first time a representative was chosen as part of Saturday’s Cosplay Masquerade at MCM Manchester Comic Con, and the region came out in force to support the contenders. The contest, which took place in the MCM Theatre, featured a total of 45 entrants and was judged by veteran cosplayers Sephirayne and J-Po.
“It is amazing, it still has not sunk in yet,” a delighted Sarah told Buzz. The costume, which was only her second, took over 350 hours to make and she faced various challenges, including using Worbla thermoplastic sheets for the first time and also handwriting all of the pages of her glyph book.
Judge J-Po praised the entries to the event: “There was a wide variety of skills shown and as a result there was some truly fantastic cosplay on display. Manchester did the cosplay community proud.”
