Tonights press conference by the Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) Japanese Tsubasa Club (JTC) put paid to months of online speculation about the fate of the annual Start-Of-Year (or SOY) Cosplay event.

Simply put, SOY will not be happening in 2012, marking this year as the last for yet another stellar event “By fans, For fans”.

While this certainly hammers the nail into the community driven events coffin (at least for now anyway), there’s still alternatives like Cosfest X.2 (happening in late February no less, in the traditional SOY belt) to tide cosplay lovers over.

Check out the official release about the discontinuation of SOY at SGCafe here.
