Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention 2013

I had the most exciting and wonderful day at The Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) 2013, Marina Bay Sands Convention Hall! This year, I went with my colleagues/ friends and it was a totally different experience, even more fun. :) I guess it is the fun of sharing our excitement of seeing something with each other. :) Again, like STGCC 2012, four phrases to describe:
Amazing artwork!
Awesome cosplay!
Masssive crowd!
Incredible fun!
This year, Iron Man seems to be the highlight of STGCC. He is everywhere! Lol.

The awesome cosplay never cease to amaze me. I still marvel without fail at the amazing details that some of the cosplayers have put into their cosplaying! Really hats off to them. There is a good mix of both the Western and Japanese cosplay.

I also met my student, Andrea whom I taught in Primary 4 in 1998! It is really wonderful to see her again after so many years! :P It was fantastic catching up with her and hopefully, I will see her again at other cosplay events. :)
