Singapore Toys, Games & Comics Convention (STGCC) Day 1

Backdated post but whatever... I attended the Singapore Toys, Games and Comics Conventions last week so here's a quick recap on Day1.

I cosplayed Awashima Seri from the hit series, K. Been wanting to do her for awhile now, so I finally jumped on it when Esther asked me to join her team.

Unflattering photo but whatever, it's the only full one I have of me thus far as the photographers are still processing their batch of photos from the event.
The day was bittersweet as a lot of things happened. First, I actually had a meltdown in the first half of the event as I had built up quite a lot of stress from work and my wig was giving me a lot of issues, it just refused to cooperate with me and I as getting more and more frustrated, so eventually the two resulted in me literally crying and venting out all my pent up feelings. Was really grateful that the bf was there that day, he comforted me through the whole ordeal.
After recovering from the meltdown, I reapplied my makeup and decided to just carry on, despite being half tempted to just pack my bags and go. However, I didn't wanna leave Esther behind as she was my partner that day. Luckily, I didn't leave as I wound up meeting a lot of my old cosplay friends that day, but I didn't camwhore with them, so all the camwhore pics are their own.
With the amazing Jo, looking fabulous as always
Met Thai cosplayer Narutan again! Love love love her Nightwing cosplay!!

I also met this pretty convincing Tiger cosplayer from Japan called Zaki, her partner, Minami was cosplaying from Jojo's Bizarre Adventrue but I Forgot to take a pic :(

Took this picture of the amazing Cvy!! Always in awe at her excellent cosplays and she's so cute and friendly! Check out the horse head, the details are just amazing!
Of course, when one meets Selicia, one must always do something funny to her.

She cosplayed the main character from the series, Devil Survivor. I tied her bunny "ears" to a ribbon on her hoodie.

She didn't realise till much later what I had done LOL, this was after I told her 

She was wearing a bowler hat towards the end of the day, so Esther and I took the opportunity to tie her "ears and forced her to wear the hood over her hat hahaha
I didn't wander around as much as I wanted to, partly because I was wearing freaking 13.5cm high platform heels and also because I wasn't quite in the mood to do so and the bf's knee was hurting abit so I didn't want him to fight with the growing crowd. But he did go to the event rather early to help me get some Vampybitme merchandise and this:
Her autographed poster to me!
I got the polaroid later when I found her at her booth and after I took a polaroid with her, I gave her one and asked for another. She was super sweet about it and the best part was, after I signed asked her to autograph the polaroid, she kindly asked me to sign the one I gave her too! She's really such a down-to-earth person and incredibly friendly.
By the end of the day, I managed to recover my mood so I felt better for day 2, which I'll write about soon!
