Phew, back from Con-G last weekend, still sort of recovering. Cons are exhausting, even if I pretty much sat behind my table the whole time, had to get up early to set up, and do take-down every day. I think I did okay, slightly better than Con Bravo last year (which was my first time doing artist alley).
I went in my Squid Girl cosplay. A lot of people recognized me (yay! I didn't think Squid Girl was all that well-known lol) and complimented me on my cosplay. I think I'll probably wear it again at Anime North, though I need to probably fix the hair so it sits better on my head and doesn't slide off so much lol.
Ep 20 of Gundam Build Fighters... was an emotional rollercoaster >___< I had a sinking feeling when I saw the title being "Aila's Betrayal". But it started off pretty light-hearted. First, I saw the Ptolomaios
and went "eeeeee". I mean I guess it's not *that* surprising, since we see an Exia-silhouette in the opening, but still. All I could think of was "Come on Sei, get an Archangel for your Star Build Strike!!! Do it!". I would be very very happy if the Archangel showed up in Build Fighters
(though in ep 18, the cafe they ate at was the Arc Angel
And then Nils tried to hypnotize Sei to get him to remember what he knows of the Plavsky Particles (after his attempt with Reiji failed), and Sei just ended up reciting Amuro's lines from all of MSG, haha. Nils called him "Gundam baka", which just reminds me of Setsuna. But I guess Setsuna is a different sort of Gundam baka than Sei...
The fight was excellent. I didn't know who to cheer for 'cause I like Fellini too. And then..... bad things happen. I knew something bad was going to happen to Aila T__T .... Her expression when she sees Reiji is just... ugh T__T Reiji please don't hate her!! Sei says in the preview for the next episode, "we want to understand each other" (which reminds me of 00); I hope that even though Aila will likely lose the fight, she doesn't lose Reiji, or her sanity >__<
Olympics are over. Watched the closing ceremony yesterday. I still want to go back and watch the events I missed over the weekend though. I was setting up in the artist alley room on Sunday morning when someone came in and yelled "we won" (men's hockey) and everyone cheered.
Finally was able to start on my RG Skygrasper. It's so detailed and beautiful even though it's only 1/144 scale *__* Step one was "put tiny pilot into cockpit", which meant that if I wanted to paint the pilot, I had to do that before anything else. And I asked myself "am I crazy enough to paint a 1/144 scale pilot?" the answer was "yes, because it's Mwu". And I'm glad I did, because if I didn't paint him, he would've looked weird against how detailed the rest of the Skygrasper and I would've regretted it forever. I took some photos, but I'm too lazy to get them off my phone right now so I'll do that later.
The Skygrasper itself is done, need to do the Launcher and Sword packs. I probably won't put all the decals on though. And then the RG Strike. I'm debating on whether to get the RG Freedom (I don't have a Freedom aside from the SD one, I was going to get the HG Freedom eventually, but I'm liking the RG line so far, so maybe I'll get the RG Freedom instead?), but I'll definitely get Exia when it comes out (eeeeee RG Exia!! I don't actually have an Exia either, well, I have the SD Exia, but that doesn't count lol).
