A Little Cosplay at Notting Hill Carnival For Children’s Day

It was the Children’s’ Day today at Notting Hill, which means the big floats and costumes will be saved for tomorrow’s glorious sunshine. But on the streets of Notting Hill away from the floats, there seemed a new interloper. Cosplay. Oh, people always dress up, but this year there seemed to be more of a superhero theme than usual. And there were quite a few Black Panthers, Spider-Men, Harley Quinns and Poison Ivies around the place…

I went down with the kids today, arrived early, left early, may just go solo tomorrow…

The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event that has taken place in London since 1966 on the streets of the Notting Hill area of Kensington, each August over two days (the August bank holiday Monday and the preceding Sunday). It is led by members of the British West Indian community, and attracts around two million people annually, making it one of the world’s largest street festivals, and a significant event in Black British culture. In 2006, the UK public voted it onto a list of icons of England.
