The London Games Festival is to close in epic fashion by holding a huge parade of video game characters, both official and cos-players. It will be rather unique in that it will focus solely on characters and icons from video games, rather than general pop culture.
The event on April 8th will start in Guildhall Yard, a parade down Cheapside and then activity through Festival Gardens and then up to the steps of St Pauls Cathedral. There will then be a ‘catwalk’ showcase of the cosplayers and characters in Paternoster Square.
For more details and information on how to attend, head to www.games.london/parade. Entry is free, and your costume must be family friendly – don’t go thinking you can shove some water balloons down a t-shirt and go as one of the girls from Senran Kagura Estival Versus.
I suppose I could get a mohican and wear a couple of rabbits and go as my new video gaming crush, Erend from Horizon Zero Dawn. I’ve already got the chops.
