Good luck getting out in one piece. Couldn’t help but to grab a set of stickers for ourselves.

The Indies

One of the key reasons to make it all the way down to Street Superior would be to patronise the everyday artists. Slap on Calvin and Hobbes onto a tote bag and you’ve got a winning combination by the folks at the Goodluck Bunch. At S$40 it by no means in the region of regular tote bags but it simply captures all the good feels for all the folks who grew up reading Bill Watterson’s work. Plus, it’s tastefully done as well.

Patches seem to be all the rage these days owing to its ability to jazz up any piece of clothing with minimal fuss. While there were many stores selling patches, the ones found at Pewpewpatches were one of the most eye-catching.

Having a great location helps plenty too.

With plenty to see at Street Superior 2018, the event would certainly look a world of a difference when seen during the day or at night (like above).

A fair bit of warning for folks who are looking to visit the event over the weekend. It would appear that there might be limited parking at the venue itself but thankfully there’s a free shuttle that operates between Labrador MRT and the event.

Street Superior will run from 27-28 October, 12pm to 10pm at Pasir Panjang “A” Power Station, 27 Pasir Panjang Road. Head on over to Street Superior website for more information and ticketing. Tickets are more pricey at the door so it actually pays off to grab them online before heading down this weekend.
