STGCC 2014

Almost overdue by 1 month but what the heck, better late than never.

It was held at Marina Bay Sands on the 6-7 September. You can find the guest line-up and a short description of STGCC here. The turnout was very good but I couldn't figure out what was the theme this year (Iron Man last year). It was kind of a mixed bag. As usual, lots of toys on display as well as cosplays. Not forgetting the indie art scene which was present as well.
