With so many panels and conferences packed together – I do believe this is how the title makes sense. Once again, this isn’t some SDCC level of packing where the only solution is cloning, but Friday and Saturday might prove to be challenging to some Comics and Star Wars fans. We covered Friday and Saturday and be happy for on Sunday things are a lot more relaxed.
Beginning the day we get into the theme of things as Cosplay 101 – How to make/source your costumes? goes hand in hand with the cosplay competition that day. Let’s not forget that people in costume will get to enter STGCC free on Sunday – so I think quite a few people are going to be at this panel. I do believe us at HBG will be coming in costume – how about you?
UNANNOUNCED! Next we’ll have Merchandising of comics into toys. While this is still currently unannounced we do have good information that this will be happening – it’s only a question of where. It should be a conference, since the timing does clash with the cosplay panel. At any rate, insights into the collaborative creative nature of toys and comics come are studied with both comic book artists and toy designers giving their input on this. Sonny Liew, Tan Eng Huat, Tim Tsui and Jason Siu will be there to share their insights.
Traditional form of comic illustration will be the panel up next – the 2 Phils – Phil Yeh and Phil Ortiz (I pity the moderator, hurhur) will share about the basics of comic illustration. With tons of experience between the 2 of them, this will prove to be an enlightening experience for those wishing to dip their pen into the comic industry.
And finally, An inside look to the enigmatic world of Devilrobots brings the panels to a close. Koto Nishiyama and Devilrobots art director Shinichiro Kitai will be present to give us a deeper look into the artistic toys of Devilrobots.
And that’s a wrap for now! Things can always change, but we’ll try to update you with any news we get!
