We hope you’ve got Friday, November 1st already marked in your calendars because we are totes expecting to catch your act at our Cosplay Birthday!
We’ll be at The Harrison in central London from 6pm selling cheap zines, GEEKED merch, giving away goodies and having good ol’ fashioned fun. Oh, and did we mention? It’s a Cosplay Birthday so get your gear on! Whether you’re the superhero type, or more of a historical character reenactor, we’re all about it! All are welcome so if we catch anyone body-shaming or ‘Fake Geek’ labeling, we’ll get Phoenix to vaporize them!
As wicked-wonderful as our party will be, that is not the extent of November 1st’s awesomeness!
From 6.30-8.30, Foyles will host a discussion between book contributors Dr. Will Brooker (our favorite web comic creator) and Richard Reynolds and comic creators Kieron Gillen and Si Spurrier. They’ll discuss not only what makes a superhero—costumes, powers, context—but also what those elements mean to fans, readers and creators. The evening will conclude with signings so get your queuing shoes ready!
Admission is £5 and tickets can be purchased at the door!
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to totally GEEK out and explore what it really means to be a superhero (and may we suggest you do this in cosplay, since you’ll obviously be coming by to party with us after!!)
All settled then. November 1st is your day to get GEEKED! Hit the coolest book launch of 2013 at Foyles and then come party-hearty with us at The Harrison.
We’ll be waiting
