Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention

One of two major anime/comics/toy conventions held annually in Singapore, the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC) returns this weekend (Aug 20 [Sat] and Aug 21 [Sun]) to Suntec Singapore, Halls 401 and 402.

Among this year's guests are Paul Levitz — the former president of DC Comics who penned stories for most of the company's classic superheroes including Superman and those of the Justice Society — and Kishida Mel, the illustrator of a slew of popular anime characters, including those of this season's Kami-sama no Memo-chou and Hanasaku Iroha. Itou Shizuka, the voice actress for Beezlebub's Hilda, will also be making an appearance.

Ticket prices range from S$10 to S$18. Details available here.


I've got a lot on my plate this weekend, having just returned to work after a three-week break, so I may not make it to the convention. Those of you going, here's hoping that you'll enjoy yourselves!

Unfortunately, I was in the midst of booking out....

Glad to see she appreciates the night scene of Marina Bay where we poor sods slogged our asses off the past 3 months for the parade...

Despite being an Anime Fan, all these events don't really appeal to me- and the ones that I do go to were because my friends dragged me -_-


@Cosmic Eagle : Lol, you were involved with the parade ?

During my time... I wasn't heh But I heard it was Hell on Earth for the participants

(How many collapsed this year?)

Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention 2012

Well-known Japanese cosplayers to attend STGCC 2012

Japanese pop-culture fans have more reasons to look forward to Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) 2012 as Reed Exhibitions announces three new personalities who will join this year's line-up.

Touya Hibiki
Touya Hibiki is a famous cosplayer in Japan, well-known for her extremely charming portrayal of male anime and manga characters. Her flawless cosplay of characters such as Tokiya Ichinose (Uta no Prince Sama), Kaito (Vocaloid), Kuranosuke Shiraishi (Prince of Tennis), Kamui and Okita (Gintama) and Saotome Alto (Macross Frontier) has captured the hearts of thousands of fans worldwide. Touya regularly participates as a staff cosplayer for Miku Party (Mikupa), Comiket and many other game events in Japan. She will be making her first appearance in Singapore at STGCC.

Yun Kousaka
Another famous Japanese cosplayer coming to Singapore for the first time, Yun Kousaka is best known for her depiction of sweet, innocent characters from popular anime and manga such as Hasegawa Kobato (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai), Kagura (Gintama), Kaname Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) and Yamada (Working!). Yun and Touya have also worked together to bring alive dreamy couples from popular anime series such as Gintama and Uta no Prince-sama.

MONOMIND
MONOMIND is a popular Japanese electronic-music label. Made up of DJ haLRu and guest artists, MONOMIND takes pride in spreading its fusion of otaku and club culture to all parts of the world. Known as the mastermind behind Japan's much raved about Touhou club event, Onban Yakoh (Monster Party),DJ haLRu is famed for being the master engineer for popular doujin releases like Anime House Project Series and Enigmatic Lia 4.
DJ battle @ STGCC: DJ haLRu, MONOMIND vs DJ Zanio, ZANEEDS
Japanese pop-culture fans can also look forward to an electrifying DJ battle as DJ Zanio from ZANEEDS battles MONOMIND's DJ haLRu. It promises to be an ultimate Touhou vs Vocaloid showdown that fans will not want to miss.

STGCC 2012 will take place on Sept 1 and 2 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands. For more information, go to www.singaporetgcc.com


Adapted from press release by Ninemer Public Relations.





As I've been invited, I'll be attending as a member of the media. No, it won't grant me much in the way of special privileges but, what the heck, I may as well use the chance while I can.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Said dolls + our cameras total cost we were carrying more than 10k worth of stuff...my bunch must be really nuts...

Best cosplay this year...definitely the Suigintou on Saturday. General standard is better than last year's....last year was pure Miku spam....

Of course, that's not including Kousaka Yun's Tsukihi....
