I started with the shoes.

Everything went downhill after that.

BrickFair: the aftermathening

Posted by Bfahome , Aug 05 2014 · 114 views

Wednesday:
Flight was delayed by 1-2 hours, but eventually met Avohkah Tamer at the Dulles airport. Then we waited like 45 minutes for the hotel shuttle. Then we went to the hotel and met up with Takuma Nuva and settled into our room. Helped set up stuff and met more people. Came frustratingly close to winning Bingo multiple times but didn't. Other stuff that's kind of just a blur at this point.

Thursday:
More set-up. Made an angry face for the combo build, but didn't win. Raided vendors for things. Won the AFOL Skyscraper (6' 8" tall) and the City set (4438) associated with such. Recorded the weekend's Bfa Plays BH with Takuma and AT then promptly forgot to publish it until Sunday night/Monday morning.

Friday:
More perusing of themes and vendor raiding and hanging out with people. Made a quick MOC from most of the TECHNIC 90° male connectors and triple female connectors and other pieces to display. Went to the LEGO Store and dropped $90 (and 3¢) on stuff.

Saturday:
PUBLIC. Handed out maps and info to the line from 10-11 (dressed as MetalBeard). Immediately after grabbed my BioniLUG stuff and "prototype" piece (slim pickings, went with a chrome Hau). PUBLIC! Destroyed my legs in Laser Tag (still recovering), then played Cards Against Humanity until 2.

Sunday:
More MetalBeard line walking. Then the BZP HF Parts Draft. Got some stuff I wanted and also all the big torsos just for the heck of it. PUBLIC! Helped with the tear-down after the public left. Won a BAG OF INSTRUCTIONS!!! at the closing ceremonies. The fancy dinner ended up going rather badly, with us getting there at 8 and then waiting outside until 9 because apparently the management was new and didn't know what they were doing. So it took forever and wasn't over until late, limiting our food options and generally leaving everyone less than thrilled. But we looked darn good. Then I was packing until 1 for a plane at 5 so you can guess how well that went. I ended up throwing away (most of) my MetalBeard costume because I just didn't have space for both it and all the stuff I ended up getting. I don't know who if anyone has pictures of it, or if they'll ever be shared publicly, so that's kind of disappointing, but I think I could easily make it over again if I had the materials, so in the end I guess it's not a huge loss.

Overall it was an absolute blast and I greatly hope to be able to attend BFVA next year as well.

A sampling of the people I met:
DeeVee
Nukaya
ChocolateFrogs
Aanchir
Lyichir
Nuju Metru
Avohkah Tamer
Takuma Nuva
Zatth
Bionicle Raptor

Also got some unnecessarily dramatic footage of a decent portion of the convention and other events with the BZPCam. I tried to get the entirety of the GBC as best I could while dodging around the public.

Notable acquisitions:
Garan (to talk to) ($2 at the yard sale)
2x sparkly Avohkii (and 2x silver Avohkii)
several TECHNIC Super Battle Droid parts
silver Ignika
many BIONICLE and Hero Factory masks and heads, plus Iron Man and Gorzan heads
several black/red blended Keerakh staves and Antroz wings, probably for a future Toa Radiak build (to go with Gavla)
Tunneler Beast and Rocka Crawler, plus Tentro (best Mixel) and baseplates for giant mosaic (from the LEGO Store)
tons and tons of fun
