    They one on Level 2 at Foyer 1 right where we used to have Baka Matsuri/EOY Event?
    I didn't go there (only the went to Level 1 looking for ATM Machine) when I last went to Singapore Expo for TGX so not too sure. Seriously I keep thinking where Subway is now, there is a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Outlet! )

    ==============================================
    ==================================================


    Anyhow, just an Reminder To ALL Cosplayers & Photographers

    - STAY FAR FAR AWAY from Halls 1 and probably Hall 2 too as CHC will be conducting their Service at Hall 1
    "CHC services this weekend is at Singapore Hall 1 (Sat 10th @ 5pm, Sun 11th @ 10am)"

    - Only hangout at the Fast Food Joint/Food Court/Restaurants at Singapore Expo or Changi City Point if you ARE buying food from there and eating it on the Spot. Keep the area clean too, dun hog the place too long (unless you're eating and drinking still) and Please do Clear your own Table after use (in the case of the Fast Food Restaurants)

    - Toilets => Keep Clean. Trim your Wig at home OR if really necessary, collect the trimmed hair and throw properly into the Dustbin. Dun hog the toilet too much too as some people still need to use the Toilet Bowl.

    - Please do not station/park/picnic along the corridors or area of heavy traffic for too long.
    Only Walk, Do Not Rest too long along the Covered Corridors of Halls 3-6 (if you happen to go there) as due to other events happening at Halls 4-6, there might be heavy traffic. And this area is the place where the Security get very jumpy about what we can do there just because we're in costume and rumored you-know-who complained about us "disturbing them and going into their space". "

    - Take care of your belonging Please.
    You either dump everything into a Trolley Luggage or Big Bag, or get a Minder to help carry things for you. Remember to Treat your Minder to Kopi-C later

    Hi, Just a question as this would be my first time going there >< There will not be a place where we can store our stuff right? Normally I heard from others that most of us ( Cosplayers) would place our belongings beside the walls at the cosplay area with a friend to watch over. That's fine right? ><

    Yub yub and there never was.
    The only Events that provided Storage area for Cosplayer off my head is EOY Event, and a very long time ago, at the 2nd STGCC Coscon (but it was only for awhile near the CosCon Organizer Booth behind the Photoshoot Wall)

    IF there is a space provided for Cosplayers (Officially or NOT Officially) like at the past 2 years (2010 & 2011) AFA or STGCC 2012. That is relatively fine as long as you keep the place clean and it's not in the way of heavy traffic.

    We do not yet how it'll be at Singapore Expo Halls 7 & 8, if the AFA Organizer or Expo People gonna open Hall 9 for Cosplayers or "allocate" some event-free zone for people to rest or do "Blank Wall" Photoshoot.
    IF there ARE space that is not in the way of Heavy Traffic, it's okay. Just make sure someone is always there to take care of the stuffs and move everything away in case "get chased" out by Security. (Good idea too to feed that Minder with Food, Drinks, maybe an iPad+Charger/iPhone/PSP/Manga/Book etc so he/she won't be bored or run away! ).
    The point is, [1] Be Considerate and not Hog the Space too much, [2] Only "Park" there if you're "allowed" to [3] Keep the place CLEAN.

    just pointing out...
    more experienced cosers are not obliged to help newer cosers.

    Frankly, if you want help, you got to be brave enough to go up to someone and ask.
    but of course, you might approach someone who's rushing or is just plain mean and won't help you...

    Basically, you should try to style your wig the day before.
    so that you don't need to do it on the day itself.
    as for wearing...
    don't be lazy. PRACTICE.
    it's more difficult for a person to put a wig on someone else than it is for the person to put it on himself...

    neighborhood hair dresser $25 wash and blow + wear, clip and style... just show the pic, saves you the trouble of waiting for slowpokes at the expo toilets... which are low in quantity and short of space too...

    Dun worry
    There's a Food Court at Singapore Expo (Universal Dining) and another one at Changi City Point Basement (Bagus) so can still get REAL Food like when we're at Suntec (which btw, its Convention Halls looked totally blocked off from the outside and I can even see wires dangling from the ceiling of the area that was the Concourse at Level 3, thru the Glass Windows. Guess they're renovating the Convention Halls side now)

    Ditto on that!
    I remember when I had my Wigs trimmed at a Professional Wig shop; the person put the wig too low on my head that the fringe/bangs ended up a bit longer than I desired.

    Later when I had another wig trimmed at one of those CHEAP Hair Dresser (they're almost everywhere now and worth it the low pricetag since am only trimming the bangs), I wore the wig myself and even tho' I put it a bit lower, still ended up just nice to my taste.
