Cosfest Classic 2023
Singapore’s exciting cosplay convention Cosfest by the Singapore Cosplay Club (SCC Square) is returning for its 20th edition: Cosfest Classic at Downtown East on 29 & 30 July 2023. This year, Cosfest Classic pays homage to all things nostalgic of the anime, cosplay, comics, games, and music genres that are as iconic as the pioneering event. Here's what you can expect at this year's Cosfest:
This year, Cosfest Classic presents epic stage performances, such as:
An act who's not-to-be-missed: rising Japanese voice actress and singer Yui Ninomiya, who will be making an appearance on both days of the weekend convention. Yui made her voice acting debut singing as Ema Hinata (日向エマ) in the TV anime Aikatsu Friends!. The 21-year-old released her first album "Ai Toka Kanjou" (愛とか感 情) in 2020 under Lantis, one of the trendiest and most influential music production studios for anime and game music.
On 29 July 2023, the Kanagawa-born artiste will be bringing a live talk show to interact with the audience, followed by a meet & greet with fans. The popular singer will perform her top hits on 30 July 2023.
Cosfest Classic also welcomes a group of special guests: EDGE REBOOT, the winners of the Cosfest Special Award at the prestigious Osaka Comic Con 2023. They wowed the crowd in Japan for their portrayal of the characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. EDGE REBOOT is a team of Marvel Cinematics Universe cosplayers who have been active since 2014.
On 29 July 2023, catch the talented group on stage in their award-winning outfits. Stay tuned for a surprise on 30 July 2023 as they each appear in their favourite, exquisitely-made costumes! Drop by to say hi on both days and score some wefies!
