The Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) 2012 is taking place on 1-2 Sep 2012 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center, and it will feature two famous cosplayer guests – Touya Hibiki (十夜ひびき) and Kousaka Yun (香坂ゆん).
Its really great to see so many famous cosplayers visiting Singapore in the past couple of years, and I’m sure its a great opportunities for cosplay fans to meet their favorite stars as well. While I’m not familiar with Touya, I’m very amazed to learn that she is actually a female because her characters are seriously so dashing! O_O
