Just got back from Loof, where I met the fine peeps from Reed Exhibitions, the brains behind the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC). It was great meeting with the team, especially Peter Tatara and Mike Armstrong from New York and getting a feel of what pop culture fans can expect this year round.
First off, a bit of news for cosplay friends.
The cosplay competition’s on again, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement to that effect. There’s even gonna be a celebrity cosplayer who’ll be flown in to judge the event, and something of an extra special surprise in the works. If you’re keen to join the competition, be sure to watch this space for more details.
Next, the portfolio review’s on the cards again, so artists rejoice. Also, there’s gonna be returning panelists and guest speakers, so if you’re keen to glean some pearls of wisdom from the comic giants, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to do so.
Gamers will get to share in the fun too, with big names like Nintendo putting in a stronger showing this year. Same for toy collectors, who can expect popular toy designers to put in another appearance.
