Blabbering of a Fool
Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention + Night Shoot (150909)
As the title suggests, it’s a trip down to the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention (STGCC), together with good ol’ Kodomut.
Let the (lousy) pictures do the ‘talking’. 行くぜ！
Plush animals, just like a plush zoo, by the Singapore Zoo

the Singapore Garrison The 501st Legion
What’s a toy convention without toys?
A cool major display stand of Snake Eyes
The toys don’t even come close though
A Bumblebee cosplayer. Pretty sleek~
The many goodies Kodomut’s comrades brought along with them for the shoot
After that, I went along with Kodomut and Zh3us to meet Alafista, a well-known local blogger, for a night photo shoot with their Nendoroids which were selected in polls in their respective blogs.

Hard at ‘work’~
More photos here, and even more BETTER taken ones at their respective blogs (the links are above)!!
In anyway, it’s been a fun day with Kodomut, and to have met Zh3us and Alafista (who is also into Kamen Rider as well!! 😀 )
Edit: A continuation!!
Seriously speaking, there isn’t much merchandise ‘to die for’ in the convention. However, the layout and the displays of the respective booths are nicely done, “even better than last year’s”, as commented by others who went to the convention in the previous year (I didn’t. 😛 )
Anyway, I spent most of my time at the convention with Kodomut and the ‘We love NENDOROIDS’ crew (hope they dun mind me addressing them as that~). So basically, I was sticking out like a sore thumb; I was the only one who’s into fairly proportional figurines which hide behind masks, while the rest were devoted to chibi females oozing with cuteness. 😛
But heck, it was interesting to observe them engrossed in their respective photo shoots, and the topics of their conversations. And who can ever complain about meeting new friends!? 😀
Needs to get this off my chest: Saw the Megumi-cosplayer back at the Cos-Fest earlier this year at the convention. Simply amazing…to see a female Kamen Rider fan in the flesh, again! (And she looks good in pink.)
The night shoot later in the…night, was a first for me. Got to see the prowess of Kodomut and Alafista, with their arsenal of cameras and Nendoroids, which was awesome. And the many interesting conversations shared during the entire trip (Zh3us and his endless knowledge about anime, something which I have not kept up with ever since the Odex saga; and with Alafista on K-K-K-Kamen Rider stuff!)
And of course, I got to see a side of Singapore consisting of many, MANY artificial lights. Now I can somewhat understand the feelings of BK201 and the characters in Darker than Black.
Kinda looking forward to join Kodomut and his next ‘adventure’ in toy photo shoots…but I’ll be just sticking like a sore thumb again, wouldn’t I? 😛
