Today has got to be one of the most memorable events I've accounted since I arrived in Singapore. A few weeks ago I ranted on my personal Facebook saying 'I need an otaku friend' as I don't know anyone who's as crazy about these Japanese cultures as I do. STGCC happened for 2 days but my busy schedule only allowed me to visit it on one of the days. That's still good, I can still go, haha! Though, I was so busy with my homework that I ended up making my way down to Marina Bay Sands around 4pm. I didn't enter the event hall this time, just hanging around the cosplayers area was already lots of fun!
The lighting inside the cosplayers hall was pretty bad to be honest, and none of those shots turned out satisfactory. But I was glad that I got some really nice shots outside the hall. I tend to work with natural lightning more so it was more comfortable to shoot outside. Plus I don't have any fancy gears like reflective boards with me... Anyways, Singaporean cosplayers are really good! I love most of their makeup, costumes and wig stylings. It was rather lonely at first to just go to the event all alone but I met a friend from Malaysia and Kaika from thecosplaychornicles! I didn't stay long though, only for an hour or two before making my way back home to continue on my homework, though not really as I ended up updating my blog instead. Happy things are meant to be shared!
This was a mini coverage on the event and I actually filmed a little bit of footage so it wasn't enough to be compiled into a full length coverage video. But I might slot it into a vlog! I'm planning to vlog, yeah! :D As for now, you can enjoy a snippet of me at the event in my Instavid. (@HanieKuar)
