AnonymousHeya :) I was wondering if you guys will have any cloakroom type facilities this year? I'll probably be taking public transport and don't really want to do that in cosplay (props on the bus aren't fun lol) so I was wondering if you'd have anywhere to store bags? I'd rather not get a hotel room just for changing in since I live pretty close! Thanks :)
Hello! At the moment our arrangements this year will probably be the same as last year— there is a luggage room behind the reception desk that you can leave bags in, but the hotel and the con cannot be responsible for any goods that get lost in this room, I’m afraid.
However, we are looking in to opening and running a cloak room this year. It’s not confirmed, though, so check back for updates on that. :)
AnonymousHi! I was planning on preregging but I got a little stumped by tshirt size - is there a specific size chart you use/are they all unisex shirts? I just can't pick what size would suit me!
They are all unisex shirts, yep! The company we order from has no size chart available, but it’s standard unisex EU sizes, so something like this, except we have no XXL available unfortunately.
In my experience, the S, M, L and XL sizes are typical to those of men’s shirt sizes if you’ve ever bought them in the likes of Pennys/Primark, but the Large is slightly bigger than the usual Large T-Shirt, and XL is bigger again.
For female shirt sizes, S would suit size 10-12 and below, M would suit 12-16 comfortably, L is a very roomy 16-18, and XL would comfortably fit up to size 24.
Hope this helps!
