Cosplay Invades Portsmouth started as an idea I had been thinking about for a little while. After the success of helping Landport Community Garden I asked people on Facebook if they would like such as event to happen around the city, so after many people saying yes I set out to do this.
We created three days of reason to come dressed up and show Portsmouth your costumes. Friday night we held a party at Rail Social Club which was the busiest part and had some great people attend, Saturday the film night (with a few hiccups), and Sunday sports day and games mini market (got even smaller with some no shows).
With this we still are smiling about the event as we couldn’t of asked for a better group of people to come. We didn’t want a huge turn out as we knew for our first major event it could turn to disaster if we had too many people. We could of had a few more turn up; especially the people who had bought tickets and never came; but it worked and we hope to put on CIP in 2016.
