And so here I am. Day 1 at the first ever Singapore Toy & Comic Convention on a mission.
As you can see from the signboard, registration is required. But surely the organisers should have predicted that thousands of people will attend the event which will most probably result in a logistic and manpower nightmare right? Sure enough a huge crowd was gathered at the entrance during the opening. The registration was so unmanageable, the organisers had no choice but to let everyone in without the need of registering. Lesson learnt. So lets move on.
The mission is to visit the 501st Legion Singapore Garrison Booth. The local garrison is a non-profitable volunteer group involved with charity work. From its website, it is said to be the largest garrison in Asia with 36 members. Hmm are there really so little members in other Asian countries?
Looking at all the cosplayers on stage especially those wearing helmets and masks, I came to realise that body language is an important aspect. Godzilla, ultra man and the clone trooper certainly did a good job in that area with their poses.
Note to self, practice.
