Let’s Suspend disbelief, and get set to dive into an epic pop-culture weekend as
International Cosplay Day Singapore (ICDS) returns this August!
Into its fourth year, ICDS 2015 will once again feature internationally acclaimed guests, a gamut
of pop-culture content and Singapore’s Annual Chess stage show.
Following the success of last year’s ICDS, which saw some 5,000 visitors attending the fan-driven
cosplay & pop-culture convention at *SCAPE in Orchard Road, organizer
Neo Tokyo Project has decided to up their game.
This year, they have transformed the youth recreation and retail hubinto a two-day pop-culture playground that promises twice the fun.
The convention aims to attract more than 8,000 pop-culture lovers from all walks of life, including
anime fans, cosplay enthusiasts, gamers and photographers.
Guests-of-honor at ICDS 2015 includes the multi-talented
Jin (BehindInfinity) from the Philippines.
Jin is an internationally acclaimed cosplayer whose work has been featured on publications and
online media worldwide. Jin is known for versatility and accuracy in character portrayal, which is
showcased in elaborate photo shoots with cosplay group Tux Team. Recently making waves on
social media was their uncannily accurate cosplay photos of Disney’s “Big Hero 6”, as well as the
anime “Ore Monogatari!!”

“International Cosplay Day Singapore is a convention that transcends barriers”, said Mr. Jason
Koh, account director of Neo Tokyo Project. “The event celebrates pop-culture diversity, and we
hope to create a holistic environment where visitors can experience the best that pop-culture has to offer.”
With the tagline “BREAK OUT!”, this year’s convention aims to break Singapore’s traditional
convention mould with more hands-on activities, panels, and learning opportunities.
Participants are also invited to step out of their comfort zones, to immerse themselves in on-stage
programs such as the Anime Quiz and Cosplay Runway, and to mingle with like-minded fans and
visitors in dedicated rest and hobby areas throughout the convention.
Both days of ICDS are also themed. Day 1 is dedicated to celebrating anime and Japanese pop-
culture, with the popular AniDance & Music segment in the evening, while Day 2 will see cosplay
performances come to the fore.
Tickets for ICDS are priced at $5 for a Day Pass, and $8 for a two-day Weekend Pass.
