Singapore Comic Con Features
The Singapore Comic Con features different types of fun activities. Some people participate in costume playing or better known as ‘cosplaying’. This activity is done by dressing up as favorite characters from different art platforms such as anime, games, films and designs by famous artists in various multimedia and design fields. Some of the participants collaborate to create their own costumes or outputs for this event.
Another feature at this event is the gallery of merchandise that artists from different art styles present to the guests of the comic con. Besides the fact that this is exposure and a representation of their skills and talents, it is also an open door for many artists to host workshops for interested participants in the art industry of Singapore.
