    Default Ah ..holding Cosplay conventions at the IR ?

    We all know by now a certain mega corp has bought out suntec city convention halls for their personal usage on weekends proving difficulties for Cosplay events to take place there on weekends and expo is too far and not very centralized .So now that the two new Irs popped out , they have huge convention halls and exhibition facilities (especially the one at Marina Bay ) Do you think it's just a matter of time Cosplay events starts shifting to these two new attractions ?And what are your opinions on Cosplay conventions being held at these areas ?

    1) How much more are you willing to pay? Because to rent a hall at those places is not as cheap as expo or Suntec.

    2) KIDS are coming. IR/ any gambling areas will be prohibited to them. Not to say that we have to go there. But i'd rather not bring our reputation down even further by the news saying that we are gamblers too. you know how they are.

    Guh, I think we will be chased by Securities non-stop.

    Went there once. Got chased away just because we were sitting there. Well, we were waiting for the rain to stop. However we did not know that there were any tables and chairs somewhere in the basement and we got "whacked" by them.

    I don't think that place would be suitable.. even though the halls are available for us. I bet at the end of the day they would complain about us disturbing the guests at the casino or what sort.

    Eh, can't we rent Suntec from the certain corporation? I mean, they're not moving there till next year, right. :|

    @PinkKaySyah: Derp, opportunity to cosplay characters from gambling series it'd be interesting to see. Maybe the kids will be smart enough not to go to the "R-18" areas.

    I'm more concerned with us terrorizing tourists/people going to the casino and stuff, since cosplayers might not be so good for tourism and shizz. Urhurr later gahmen don't want to let us hold there how. Then security anyhow chase us away even if we're allowed to be there.

    I wonder if the roof-place thing would be a good place to shoot?

    Do agree on the part scaring tourists and the visitors to IR away , cosplay is popular but yet at the same time frowned upon by much of the general public so yeah cost wise an event like AFA already costs close to million so i expect if someone is to hold an event at IR would cost maybe twice as much as opposed to suntec .So far suntec halls are still open for rents to needed organizers just that priority goes to their events first and most cosplay events fall on an weekend so it MIGHT pose a problem to us if let's say the level 6 halls are already booked .

    And disclaimer : this is just a general discussion thread . I'm in no way representing any organizers or cosplay group nor i'm planning to hold a cosplay event at the IR

    To be exact , the whole convention hall building with over a 300 million plus stake . they will begin moving out their weekend services to suntec latest by next year .And any events suntec or organizers hold in these halls , that certain organization gets the share of the profits too.

    I do not have the numbers but I feel that New places usually have higher prices for their event halls since its shinier. I'm just being practical about the pricing for the events will increase and more lips will be flapping.

    Also the younger generation of cosplayers might not be so willing to pay the increase in prices.

    IR, will depend on the organisers.

    I highly doubt they'll allow prop weaponry like our guns there.

    With the 'certain mega corp' capitalizing on Suntec, cosplay events have to be decentralized to different shopping malls for cost reasons, or submit to the 'big brother' to institutionalize cosplay into their agenda for promoting tourism or vibrancy in S'pore. I personally feel there's more (things going on behind the scene) than meets the eye in these recent years... (Keep a close watch on these situation!)

    Whatever the case, it really depends on how upper management in the 2 IR views cosplay events. If they dun like it, then I would rather they reject cosplay events upfront for the sake of their 'high-class' image rather then to have the cosplay event there for the sake of $$$ & see the staff 'ugly' faces!
