SO MANY wonderful parts acquired at BrickFair. This uses many of them, including the mask. Also so many pneumatic T pieces and flick-fire missiles.
(I need silver Rahkshi heads, I feel like it'd help with the color distribution more.)
Also this thing that I threw together one weekend then decided to bring to the convention. Many things, including the OTCs, were added there.
Finally got to meet Black Six in the non-internet world. Also met some others like Chro, Nealybealy, Steve the Squid, and whoever else stopped by the table.
I won the Dirty Buildster game and got this nice little TECHNIC set as a prize (and it actually is a nice little set, the steering is pretty cool), as well as the big cup of random pieces I got to build with. I also tried the Blind Speed-Build, didn't win, but the City police set I got out of it was neat.
And then I spent like too much money on vendors. There was a pick-your-parts-for-eight-dollars thing going, so I did that three times and got a bunch of good stuff from that. There was also a guy selling bags of pieces, which I bought some of (including quite a few Galidor parts, and for such a meh theme that gets stepped on all the time, its pieces are pretty good-looking). I also bought Granite, the tan Slizer/Throwbot.
And some guy had a malfunctioning Technojaw T55 that someone gave him and he didn't feel like dealing with it anymore so he gave it to me. So, having had a Technojaw before, I replaced the wonky core module with my functioning one, and now I have a working and not totally disassembled Technojaw T55 to play with yay.
I also got other cool things like the goodie bag stuff and my badge and snazzy BrickFair polo for helping set up stuff.
The MOCs I sent to Cascade didn't get shipped in time to be displayed, but luckily I brought my handy portal gun and some newer stuff so they could be in the show. One of them was DJ Kumo and his stage, and the other was a little HF-shell-based thing I made. And of course, as you can see in the last entry, I was DJ Kumo (at some points). I'll probably post a topic with details of that soon.
tl;dr: I had a blast and I hope I can go next year.
Fortunately, all my friends around the Boston area (who, despite being two states away, are the closest and most consistent friends I've ever had) are fine as far as I know.
It's reassuring and, to be honest, empowering to see the united response by the city and its residents.
You can't break that spirit.
Friday I did some patrolling with a big group wearing my personal soundtrack shirt, and that was a lot of fun.
Saturday was the final mission, and a friend of mine in the dorm used her makeup to make me and a couple other zeds look very undead. I had a sort of Joker grin going, and another person taped a Nerf dart to his face. And we tore up some shirts and wore those. It was fun all around.
And now I wait for next semester.
