At "The Walking Dead" Exclusive Event: Escaping from Terminus (Singapore-Style)


Remember "The Walking Dead" Terminus Escape exclusive event for a group of fans that was held a few weekend ago ?

Over 400 participants made their valiant attempts to gather supplies and escape from hungry zombies on 11 and 12 October at the Old Bukit Timah railway station.

Red Dot Diva could not be there in person because she was away on holiday overseas, so here's a very amusing report of what happened to the one of the teams who had won passes from Red Dot Diva's online blog contest! Thanks to David Goei for writing this report and sharing the awesome photos. Also, thanks to his pals for participating in the real-life zombie escape experience!

... and it's coming to the shores of our Red Dot Island on 11 and 12 October!

Now is the best time to train for a zombie apocalypse because at a very secret location (that will only be revealed on the day itself), those with special passes will have to to use their wits and whatever tools available to escape from the locked environment within a certain time. (Note: Pass-holders will be transported to Terminus, and will be put together with a few group members for the game.)

And what if the attempt to escape ends up being unsuccessful? Then, *Chomp!*.. it's agrrgggghrrr BRAINSssssss Time.

SDCC 2014: Todd McFarlane Launches His Own Highly Detailed "The Walking Dead" Building Sets

When Red Dot Diva told her friends that she was invited to attend creator/ artist/ entrepreneur Todd McFarlane's launch of his latest product at the Image booth at Comic-Con, a number of them uttered similar comments of "Hmm.. we have been wondering what he has been up to lately!"

Well, wonder no more.

The big Todd McFarlane news at Comic-Con is the unveiling of the realistically accurate and intricate "The Walking Dead" building sets based on AMC's international hit TV series.

As the charismatic, lively and very silver foxy Todd McFarlane mentioned during the launch of the building sets, this product was made in direct competition of LEGO (coincidentally, their booth was just across from where McFarlane was launching his product), and Hasbro's  Kre-O. But McFarlane's version has a notable and major difference - he aims to erase the visibility of those familiar interconnecting knobbly dimples.

SDCC 2014: Diva's Fun and Laidback Preview Day!

A bright, sunny Preview Day is definitely a Diva-tastic way to start off the largest pop-culture event in the US!

And to have enough proteins and energy to get goin', one must have a good hearty breakfast - complete with caffeine input. A good place for that is the Broken Yolk, at the corner of J Street and 6th Avenue.

Red Dot Diva and her roomies walked to the breakfast cafe from their Hilton Bayfront Hotel early in the morn and was surprised to discover that the place was pretty empty.

Standing just outside the cafe, one of Diva's favourite geek dude, Artimus was already waiting for them. The group did not need to wait long at all for their table.

Dallas Comic-Con 2014: Record-Breaking Attendance and Super-Long Lines!

Last month, Red Dot Diva's fellow geeky acquaintance from Texas, Natasha S. Hoover, attended a comic convention that was held at her own backyard. Well, almost!

The Dallas Comic-Con (DCC) - which has been running for about the last 12 years - has recently changed ownership and this year, the event moved to a larger location from Irving Convention Centre to the Dallas Convention Centre.

In line with what's happening at comic conventions around the globe in the last few years, there was a huge increase in attendance numbers for the event which ran from May 16 to 18, 2014. Approximately 45,000 people were said to have attended DCC this year.

Here's Natasha's report for the geeky camaraderie that happened at the convention. It is too bad she did not bring a fancy camera, so all but two of the photos used in the article belong to DCC.

Diva's Q&A With Nick Santonastasso - He Who Gave Norman Reedus A Really Good Scare

Pardon Red Dot Diva for one more zombie blog post before she sails into other territories.

If only for awhile!

This little prank was too hilarious to pass up and share with all who love the "The Walking Dead", and particularly, with  all the fellow Norman Reedus fans, out there.

After Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus did their rounds of highly energetic fan events, a masterclass with drama students and charming the socks off media folk at press roundtables in Singapore, they both headed straight to Tokyo, Japan for their next wave of promo for "The Walking Dead".

The Walking Dead Live Fan Event in Singapore - Part 3 of Squees

After all that feverish excitement from seeing her fave zombie killers in action (for which Red Dot Diva places blame squarely on the hot bicepstuous-ness of  "The Walking Dead" stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus), it was a relief to step into the cool AC of La Salle's auditorium.

This was where the exclusive Q&A with the two celebrities was going to be held in front of over 200 specially invited fans and media folks.

Red Dot Diva, Red Dot Dude aka Andre and Rita decided to head down to the ground level of the hall instead of the circle seats, and managed to find a pretty sweet vantage point about five rows up from the stage. Adding to the eye candy factor was cutie and local celebrity George Young, who happened to be seated in the row just in front of Rita.

The Walking Dead Live Fan Event in Singapore - Part 2 of Squees

Location: Around noon yesterday at La Salle open ground....

"Very Tricky" obstacle course -- SET!

Bloody zombies -- SET!

Hapless victims -- SET!

Two pairs of gorgeous muscley biceps (courtesy of Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus) -- SET!

About 250 eager excited onlookers -- SET, SET and SET!

(If you have missed Part 1 of this article, Red Dot Diva says click here!)

But before Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus show off their scruffy-manly acts of heroism, event host Adrian Pang did a walk-through of the sequence of tasks with them. That's when the fans, including Red Dot Diva, who have been standing toward the back of the obstacle course, were able to get a closer look of the two stars.

The Walking Dead Live Fan Event in Singapore - Part 1 of Squees


There's simply no better way to kick off a geeky year than being in the thick of blood, gore and beautiful biceps at "The Walking Dead" Live event held at La Salle College of the Arts yesterday.

The fan event organized by Fox Movies Premium, Starhub and PR firm SPRG was one of the most vibrant and fun local fan event Red Dot Diva has attended. Made even more awesome of course, by the two super-popular celebrities from the series - Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, who were very willing to please their fans here by participating in a zombie obstacle course.

Prior to them arriving in Singapore for this special event, Norman Reedus attended and presented at the People's Choice Awards where "The Walking Dead" won the Favourite Cable TV Drama and after the telecast, Andrew Lincoln was awarded Favourite TV Anti-Hero for the character of Rick Grimes. On Twitter, Norman seemed to be having so much fun at the awards, taking selfies, accepting the award on behalf of the TWD family and 'hanging out' with Joseph Morgan and RDJ!

SDCC 2013 Recap: Breakfast With The Walking Dead. Graaaiiinnnssssss! (Part 2)

Earlier this year, Red Dot Diva was at "The Walking Dead" press breakfast on Day 2 of Comic-Con 2013. To-date, that wonderful morning is one of her most memorable press moments ever.

If you've only stumbled on this blog article now, you can catch up on how the press event began in Part 1 of the recap right here.

For those who have yet to catch-up with "The Walking Dead" Season 4's intense and heart-breaking mid-season finale, Red Dot Diva sends you slimy sympathetic zombie hugs! And don't worry, everything mentioned in this article is S4 spoiler-free!

SDCC 2013 Recap: Breakfast With The Walking Dead. Graaaiiinnnssssss! (Part 1)

Nothing beats encountering a starving zombie in a cramped elevator early in the morning.

But that was exactly what happened to Red Dot Diva on Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

The invite for "The Walking Dead" breakfast press event came as a surprise in Red Dot Diva's email inbox. How could she say no to it?? The event was way too special and too rare a chance to pass up. Especially for someone from the tiny Red Dot Island.

So on that Friday morning, she dragged herself out of bed and managed to find her way to Hotel Andaz at Gaslamp.

NYCC 2013: Many Exciting Guests, Exhibits and.... The Nerd Machine!

New York Comic Con (NYCC) just seems to get bigger and glitzier each year.

Red Dot Diva first attended NYCC in 2011, and the number of more TV or movie-related panels and guests have increased in the last two years.

Still, NYCC is a far more comics-centric convention compared to San Diego Comic-Con. The number of creators attending as guests in NYCC is any comic fan's wildest dreams. And the space set aside for Artist Alley is mind-blowingly huge, with rows and rows of comic artists eager to connect with people who are or will be interested in their work. Also, since NYCC has a far less hectic crowd than Comic-Con, the chances of one meeting and having more time with their favourite comic creators or artists are fairly high.

Check out the very LONG list of comic guests here!

Sci-Fi Expo 2013 in Dallas: Where Fans Got To Meet Comic and Sci-Fi Faves

The city of Dallas, Texas gets its fair share of pop-culture and comic book geekery too. There are a few conventions held in the big city, and one called Sci-Fi Expo took place on February 9-10, 2013 at the Irving Convention Centre.

From what Red Dot Diva heard, over 12,000 fans attended the convention over the weekend.  And the organizers OfficialPix have taken delight in seeing a growing number of attendees from year to year.

A Twitter and Facebook pal and resident Texan, Natasha Stroud was one of those fans. Here's her report on that awesome weekend:

NYCC 2012: An Alternative to Comic-Con?

This is the 7th year of New York Comic Con (NYCC).

The event is run by the good folks at ReedPOP (whose local setup, by the way, also runs Red Dot Island's STGCC). And from all bets, attendance numbers for NYCC 2012 is set to garner another record high.

Considering the recent "mainstreaming" of what used to be the geekier side of pop-culture, the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center will be jam-packed with noobs and old-timers come October 11 to 14th 2012.  Fact is, the three-day and four-day tickets have already been sold out a couple of weeks ago. And NYCC has never quite "sold out" this much, this early before.

Sigh. Signs of the times.

NYCC 2011: Diva's Stalking Schedule Is Shaping Up!

The NYCC 2011 countdown begins! Only 19 days away!!

And this week, the full panel schedule was finally announced, with some interesting ones that Red Dot Diva will definitely be targetting for.

As NYCC is still primarily a comic convention, it has (thankfully) not been inundated with too much Hollywoody stuff. But if one is so inclined, there are still some cool TV/ movie-related panels to check out!

This is Red Dot Diva's first time at NYCC, so she is trying to balance things out during the convention weekend and trying not to pack too events in her schedule.

However, there are particular panels that Red Dot Diva simply *will not* ... *cannot* miss.

STGCC 2011 - Diva Stalking The Exhibition Hall

Red Dot Diva's schedule for STGCC 2011 was "comfortably-busy", but she managed to take snippets of time to stalk the convention hall and do the necessary perving.

This year, the 3 main international pop-culture favourite booths - Marvel, DC and Hot Toys - looked very very photogenic.

Just look at the DC and Marvel booths!
