Cosplay Molester ?

Oh great. We made the front cover.

Click the above pic for full res.

I hope both the guy and the girls (yes, the little girls too =_= )learnt their lesson. See how much negative impact their little ‘plays’ have done to our beloved hobby ?

The media just needs one small glitch to blow things to national level. And all the hard work previously pumped in to portray Cosplay as a positive hobby (in Singapore) has gone down the drain. I just hope this won’t turn into some big “Anti Otaku” phenomenon. *sigh

Apparently the local papershave so little gossip/news to dish out, they decided to repeat telecast the same material over at 3 different platforms

The other Platforms

I think now only the cosplay committee people will be molested, why must it be the cosplay committee people?

At the same time, we must thanks the media cause now people know about cosplay in a negative way though. People will start to ask,

Person A: Girl got molested.... Btw,"What is cosplay huh?"

Person B: Oh. COsplay is a hobby where people dress up as anime characters

Person A: I see... Then Person A may or may not start research more about cosplay

Maybe I'm optismistic about this incident but more and more people get to know about cosplay in a bad way or another now..

... molestation is present, and it's definitely not within the cosplay scene alone. just that this case happens to be saucy news (with pictures of scantily-clad girls to boot), i bet the media is trying to leech of it as much as they can.

i still feel that the girls should have been more aware themselves, and the matter should have been solved without having it brought up to the media for the whole of sg to see =_=. bring it up to the police, fine, but disgracing the community... *shakes head*

shame on the sg cosplay scene, both female victims and molestor(soon to be victim of the media) for not being able to handle with tact.

Maybe this year all cosplay events will be slapped with M18 ratings

There is a dirty old grandpa by the name of George Wong, GOD OF WINE, who self proclaims himself as Singapore’s GOD OF WINE. This shameless old f**t goes around freeloading indiscrimately on any event in Singapore.
Not only that, he is an oppurtunistic molestor and his signature move is to hang his hand on a girls shoulder as if proclaiming ownership when taking photos. Boyfriends and husbands …beware of this shameless grandpa molestor!! Check out his FaceBook George Wong God of Wine for evidence!
At his age it is questionable if he can get it up! And the girls he molests are young enough to be his granddaughter! BEWARE!!
