It’s 1 Jan 2013, and it’s our birthday!
This site was founded on New Year’s Day two years ago, and thanks to everyone’s support, we’ve grown exponentially from being just a humble cosplay blog into a pretty successful community events and media start-up!
Yes, 2012 was a super exciting year for us to be sure.
We organized International Cosplay Day Singapore, our very first fully featured con in August with the super awesome Yaya Han as one of our guests-of-honor, collaborated with Fish & Co. Singapore and RobotsGoneBad to run Singapore’s first Cosplay Zombie Walk for Halloween, and with Make-A-Wish Foundation for their flag day earlier this year.
2012 saw us producing and directing Singapore’s Annual Cosplay Chess again, and this time, we upped the ante with stage ninjas and a bigger set. NTP was also nominated for the Singapore Blog Awards (we didn’t get a prize, but we sure made a lot of new friends in the blogging community), appeared on national TV a couple times, made the press, and did pretty well at various competitions.
On the international front, we’ve started collaborating with correspondents from around the globe, to bring better event coverage and cosplay know-how to you. We’ve got a five figure readership from 19 countries around the world now, so we want to do our best!
We expanded our team in 2012, and we’re looking to expand it even more in 2013.
Also, because we’re actually pretty big on gaming here at NTP, expect us to write a whole lot more on gaming on top of the fun cosplay things we do. We’ll also be making more gaming related costumes this year, and for a start, look out for something cool come March 2013!
So once again, thank you all for a great year, and here’s to a great year ahead!
