    I'll be going there again for an Event this early November so will double confirm again as the last time I went there, was "busy" trooping and only managed to explore the 2nd & 3rd level. Now I think about it, I thot I see another Gift Shop+Cafe on the 1st level, a door/meeting room away from the toilets; at the place where they rent out those "Mobility Scooter" or something.

    Btw, the timing had been confirmed :

    EOY wrote on 13 October 08:52 :

    This year marks EOY's 14th anniversary, and we have a bigger venue, more booths, food stalls and introduce a MMORPG concept into our festival.

    You will be entertained with singing, dancing, stage performances, cosplay/meido ambassadors, participate in quests, see the annual Lolita fashion runway, take lovely pictures of cosplayers against Marina Barrage's beautiful scenery and win prizes in our Lucky Star Gacha.

    We will also extend to evening activities like a cosplay parade and sing together sessions.

    How about a dance flash mob, and even a party with the KiraCandy girls?

    Admission to last year's EOY was $17.

    This year?

    It's FREE.

    Yes, you read it. Just for this year, EOY Cosplay Festival 2012 is FREE.

    And if you're wondering about rain... we were there during one of the worst thunderstorms a couple of weeks ago. The sheltered areas (which we have booked) are the safe zones, just like in Resident Evil / Left 4 Dead.

    Baggage storage facilities will also be provided for everyone, and priority will be given to cosplayers. Remember to get your costumes ready in time!

    To help make this year's EOY the most exciting ever, share this post and spread the word.

    See you guys this year. This is *probably* the first time, in the history of EOY, that the cosplay festival is FREE.

    We are a non-profit organization, backed by a group of individuals who really love Japanese subculture. We consider you as family and we hope you consider us as one too.

    See you there.

    Haldir,

    I've updated the event intel.

    Main concern here is for the food for those coming down as Marina Barrage is really out of the way to go out to buy food.

    Cheers.

    jrock_freak,

    I'm also looking forward to it as this is the close shop event for 2012 cosplay.

    Apparently EOY Organizer said there'll be Food Stalls tho' didn't say what kind. :/

    ".....This year marks EOY's 14th anniversary, and we have a bigger venue, more booths, food stalls and introduce a MMORPG concept into our festival...."


    I'll be attending an Event there in Armor on Nov 3, so will get back how many cafe there are there and what the prices are like after it, unless someone else can post more infos before me.


    Ps: Since when EOY had been running for 14 years? " Thot in 2000-2002 it was MAC(Miyuki Animation Club) Cosplay Event at Suntec Meeting Room Lv 2, Fantasia in 2003 (Singapore Expo), Baka Matsuri after that for a few years (at Singapore Expo) and then finally EOY Event? Donno what is the event called in 1999 (or 1998?) cause heard it was part of Fengshan CC other event?

    Is the location - Marina Barrage stopping you from attending EOY Cosplay Festival?

    Here's a short video on how to get there via public transport.
