What to expect @ Singapore Toy Games & Comics Convention 2014!
Just a few more days and STGCC shall happen! Are you ready? Let me help you prepare yourself by telling you some of the event highlights!
Name: Singapore Toy Games & Comics Convention
Date: 6th & 7th Sept 2014 (10am - 8pm)
Venue: Marina Bay Sands
Admission: $19 (single day) $25 ( both days) $70 (VIP for both days)
STGCC is best known for having some of the best variety and quantity of Guests in Singapore. Unlike most of the major in Singapore that focus on Japanese Anime and Cosplays, STGCC focus more on Art and music and Western talents. While I am personally not a fan of western comics except for the mainstream titles such as X-Men and J.E.M haha xD
This year, STGCC have a total of 27 guests! Ranging from Comic Artists, Writers, DJs , Designers, Composers, Musicians, Voice actors to Cosplayers! Check out the individual artist by clicking on the image below.
a few hours ago, STGCC just announced that due to unforeseen personal matters, Stayxxx will not be able to make it for STGCC 2014.
STGCC is an event that claims to “juice up the pop culture universe” so in line with that is the chance for local Artists and creators to showcase and promote their products at the event. There are more than 100 exhibitors, artists and merchants for you to explore, so remember to bring enough cash!
