Event List Update: 170717 (Mon)

I have started the 2018 Anime, Cosplay, Games and Fashion event list today.

The year 2018 will see Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia bringing in Marvel theme events.

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.

2017 MAY Army Open House, F1 Pit Building, Singapore

7 May 2017 Saturday

270517 (Sat) Public Day One

In the past, the Singapore Armed Forces, RSAF, RSN and Army open houses were a biannual event.

Then the open houses took a back seat with more emphasis on foreign engagement and the local engagement became small scale events.

After a hiatus of five years the Army Open House (AOH) returned to the F1 Pit Building, this is the second time that the AOH is being organised there instead of the army camps.

Cheers.

Event: 2017 Army Open House

Time:  9 am – 8 pm | 0900 – 2000 hours

2017 MAY COSFEST XVI: HOPE, D’Marquee, Downtown East, Singapore

 Cosplay 13 May 2017 Saturday

130517 (Sat) Day One

The 2017 Cosfest XVI was brought forward to the month of May as Downtown East is having a renovation.

I was very surprised to see that all the old buildings were demolished and replaced with new shopping centre when I reached Downtown East.

Most of the cosplayers and photographers were concentrated at the building behind the D’Marquee as the small field in front of it became very small due to the ongoing construction.

Cheers.

Date: 13 (Sat) – 14 (Sun) May 2017
Time: 12 pm – 6 pm | 1200 – 1800 hours
