Newfound hobby : Shrink Plastic Craft

Recently I am addicted to my newfound hobby of making shrink plastic accessories like brooch, keychains, earrings and even a badge to be sticked onto my mobile phone cover.

Well, what is shrink plastic? It is a form of plastic that shrinks when it is heated. I am using a heat gun to heat it up but will consider to buy a cheap toaster oven in near future. Trust me, it is a cool and addicting craft especially when watching the process of it curling up and magically thicken and flatten out by itself.

Singapore Toy & Comic Convention 2008

The first-ever Singapore Toy & Comic Convention 2008(STCC) was here from 27th to 29th June 2008. This was also the first international event of its kind in Southeast Asia to showcase the latest pop-culture trends in design, toys, comics, animation and gaming. I went down there on Saturday afternoon and snapped tons of photos from Tokidoki by Simone Legno and others e.g Devilrobots, Nintendo, BANDAI, Hasbro, Wizards of the Coast, Medicom Toy, Toumart, Madcap and more.

When I reached the entrance of the convention hall, I was first greeted by an Artist Graffiti Wall which was the collaborative artwork by artists which include my all time favorite Simone Legno(Tokidoki), Pete Fowler, Gary Erskine, Mori Chack, Kika and Nada, Devilrobots, Touma and more! You can read more details about the designers at the Walk of Fame.
