STGCC 2014 - Are Y'All Ready For The Red Dot Island Geek Fever?

It's June!

And that's just about the time when things start rollin' for the biggest local pop-culture event of the year - The Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC)!

*glittery Diva happy dance*

This year, the convention will be at the same venue - the convention centre at Marina Bay Sands, and during the weekend of 6-7 September 2014, the entire area will be transformed into geeksville with cosplayers, nerds with geeky t-shirts and stressed-out crew running around making sure the event runs smoothly. Then, there are the creative folks making Artist Alley their mini kingdom for the weekend and lovely convention guests (usually first-timers in Red Dot Island and the South-East Asian region) who are all ready to meet their fans.

From what Red Dot Diva has been told, ticketing for the event will be announced and released for purchase in mid-June (which is very soon!). So she hopes those who are aiming for exclusives, have saved up enough cash to snag those VIP tickets!

Around the same time, fellow geeks can also expect the first-wave of STGCC guest announcements! In addition, the official STGCC is targetting to launch their revamped website, including new information next week.


Last year, STGCC brought in a cool bunch of guests like Joe Madureira, David Mack, Adi Granov,  Nathan Hamill, VampyBitMe, J*RYU, Luke Chueh, Angry Woebots - just to name a few. It was a super-fun geek bonding weekend for Red Dot Diva, who also happened to be David Mack's token booth babe. She expects as many - if not, more - fun things to do and more cool people to meet at this year's convention.

For the benefit of newbies who have yet to attend STGCC, here's a showreel for your viewing:

As in previous years, being a supporting blog of STGCC, Red Dot Diva will be busybody-ing her way through the convention halls, and continue to bring you the bicepstous news and reports with the help of many friends like Andre (Red Dot Dude), Wern and Ed of ToysEtc.

So stay tuned!
