On 12:30pm, Saturday 25th October 2008 at the MCM Expo, ExCel Center, London, UK a Guinness World Record was broken! This record was the: Largest Gathering of people dressed as Video Game Characters
The original record was set by SEGA at only 80 Cosplayers
people last March. However only one week before the MCM Expo Germany had broken the record and set it to 337 Cosplayers
. At the MCM Expo the record was broken and the total number of Video Game cosplayers was 342 Cosplayers
!! That means Britian had just narrowly defeated Germany by only 5 Cosplayers!!
How it worked out was at 12:00pm videogame cosplayers started gathering and the Guinness World Record Staff had issued every cosplayer with a raffle to ensure they would be included in the total number. However over 50 cosplayers were rejected becuase they were not cosplayers from video games. People were desperately looking for videogame cosplayers when the time was nearing however they made it in time and had broken the german record. The Guinness World Record Team then officially given the record to the Video Game Cosplayers of the MCM Expo!!Look at this link to find the entire photo gallery of the record: [link]Look at this link for the official news coverage of the event: [link]How many videogame cosplayers can you count in the picture?
