WOTA London Returns

Wota London returns after a change of management and does not fail to impress! With returning acts dazzling us with their routines such as the Maid's of England, DotDot3, Butler Kohei.

Also a great range of anime/jpop/kpop music to relax to, dance along with or mingle with other like minded cosplayers.


I came on behalf of animepicks.co.uk as I have reviewed the MOE's recent pop up maid cafe in Camden and was impressed with the high standard of service/entertainment.

See my full report and more photos on animepicks.

A homemage to website Animepicks :)

Me as Anna-May (Mascot from animepicks.co.uk)
You guys may have picked up that I now regularly contribute articles to the website www.animepicks.co.uk before it was exclusively for cosplay and fashion features but I have gradually branched out to other sections such as games, figures and most importantly events this is due to my intrest in J-culture and love the website - many thanks to Gina the website creator for giving me a chance to contribute. Happy 2nd birthday Animepicks - check out my photoshoot dressed up as animepicks mascot - Anna May :)

My full adventures and more photos are here:
