It’s been a long while since the last mayamada event so we couldn’t wait to get our latest event, GamePad!, up and running.
Things got off to a great start as the crowd rolled into the Petit Miracle Hub in West 12 Shopping Centre…free cupcakes might have had something to do with that!
It was a cosplay takeover as Animeleague made a big showing at GamePad! and the building was packed full of amazing characters.
There were enough cosplayers to hold our own cosplay contest, and we did just that with tickets to London Anime & Gaming Con up for grabs.
We had cosplayers from Marvel, Pokemon and Dragonball universes. After the voting was done, Tabitha (aka Demorafairy Cosplay) was crowned the winner with her Espeon cosplay.
A big part of GamePad! is the games and we had three screens running Mario Kart, House of the Dead and Super Smash Bros throughout the day.
Special guest Shaodow came, saw and conquered as he took out the competition and team mayamada to win the Super Smash Bros tournament. As well as Samurai Chef chocolate and a logo snapback cap, he also won tickets to StreetFest 2015!
It wasn’t just video games, no-tech gaming was just as fun with things getting very competitive on giant Jenga.
It was a great day and this was just the start…GamePad! will be back in June so stay tuned to find out the date of the next mayamada gaming and music event.
