Valiant Force is a smart device strategy game designed and developed by a local (Singapore) development team. While the game is still under development at the time of writing this feature article, folks may want to visit the game's official website for more information as well as sign up to receive updates directly from the development team.

The Artist Alley has become a norm at popular culture conventions, offering visitors with a refreshing experience zone outside of the usual commercial brands as well as opportunities for smaller artisans to market their works.

Having written so many feature articles myself, I realized that I can rarely be seen in the photos as I am always the one who is capturing photos with the camera. Now here is a rare opportunity for my readers and followers to see me in picture. ^^;

Fans may also request for the guest cosplayers to pose by themselves for photos as well.

Cosplay by the Community

Beyond the boundaries of the event location, members of the local (Singapore) popular culture community celebrate their passion through Cosplay - a performing art of donning costumes of the characters they love, role-playing, and posing for photos.

We had lots of fun and exciting experiences shopping for pop culture merchandises, watching stage performances, and queue-ing up to get photos and autographs of our favorite artistes at the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention 2015!

There are so much contents available at #STGCC2015 that one has to attend the event in person to enjoy the full experience!
