Though the internet has evolved into a mass of information, forecasting and rumours that cater for almost all of your fanatic needs, there are times when you just need to dress up like Doctor Who and head to an event with thousands of like minded people. For the next three days, the ExCel Centre will be flooded with more Princess Leias, Thors and Sailor Moons than Yoda can shake his walking stick at for the MCM London Comic Con Expo. With special appearances from The Doctor himself, Matt Smith, a couple of Misfits and many more, it’s the perfect place to get all the latest news in the world of comics, manga, anime, film, cosplay, games and cult fiction, as well as picking up a couple autographs along the way of course. Carly-Ann Clements

Certainly don’t dress up like Princess Leia in that bikini:

Just don’t mix your characters:

And always wear shoes:
