2016 Anime, Cosplay, Games and Fashion Events, Singapore

21 October 2015 Wednesday

211015 (Wed)

Event List Update: 011216 (Thu)

I’m starting an event list for the 2016 Anime, Cosplay and Games (ACG) events here in Singapore in my blog post.

Yes, I used to put up the event list at a local cosplay forum here.

However, many cosplay events that I have posted were deleted by the forum moderator as it was organised by other entities which I guessed that the forum did not support.

Unfortunately, there will be no DBS Marina Regatta Cosplay for this year.

I do hope that there will be no clash of events as it is not good for the cosplayers, organisers and photographers.

The events in bold are confirmed.

Without Fear or Favour.
