: This is what happened to the costume after the event. >>> blazetbw.deviantart.com/art/Th...
Updating photos and stuff here: blazetbw.deviantart.com/journa...
UPDATE: I will post links to the event when they're available! ...OR when I get them, which ever I find/obtain first. (But first some sleep.)
Also known as my 15 minutes of shame for the year...well this part of the year anyway. (There's still the rest of the year.)
Year number two for Sonic Boom! Those of you who have been tuning in have seen some of my progress on my Mecha Sonic cosplay. (Despite people kept calling me Metal, I didn't care because they're...damn near the same thing anyway
didn't want to be too picky about it.)Also some how people couldn't initially tell I was a girl at first. ...Which was lolz to me, but understandable considering it was so dark. But I was going for that because the last thing I wanted to do was bring attention to my backside...hence the shorts.
FYI- I did not take these pictures myself, but they were with my camera (first image was ripped from the facebook page just to show the minimum of what was there).
People whom I had the pleasure of meeting in the flesh:
- The awesome
whom had introduced me to the just as amazing
(and another friend of theirs of which their name escapes me because by then I had probably lost most of my hearing).
(and friend that I don't remember the naaaaame... if I heard it)
(Finally update with your correct and current username! ...|D thanks for catching up lol)
To name a few... @~@ I'm so sorry if I met you and I forgot your name/username/etc. There were so many people and I was just trying not to pass out. (Which I didn't because the CO2 had room to move. But a couple well needed breaks were necessary.)
Even more of a shock to me was that (of the few times I took my head off) people remembered me dressing up as Blaze the Cat from the first year of Sonic Boom! (Last year...which I DID have a picture in my gallery but then deleted it and will probably repost in the future...maybe.)
As a fan, I had fun. Very shameful fun. So shameful I...almost felt guilty. (Give it some time.)
Food was alright, especially for all-you-can eat & drink. I survived lol. I don't drink (by choice) and ended up giving away my drink tickets (you got your first two drinks free).
It was amazing cool in there...unless you were by a crowd of bodies. (But hey, you expect that at any event where there's a fair amount of hundreds anyway.)
The concert was pretty neat, my heart near flipped with I heard that Big Arms remix from Generations 3DS from that guitar (ei. the same theme that plays for Mecha in Sonic 3 & Knuckles). Freakin' sweet.
unfortunately didn't get the chance to play the game demo. I had no time, plus it took me like...5 literal minutes to get my butt up and down the stairs because of my feet. (And there weren't any game stations on the lower level and thus where I stayed until the end of the event...tried to anyway.) But hell it looked great and so far looked like it was handling just as great too. (That and I enjoyed the first game.)
I didn't get a chance to get any autographs either- @ -@ stuck taking pictures still... (But I did see Senoue and Iizuka through the stairwell and they came to congratulate me once more which was nice of them~ ...didn't have any of my stuff on me for them to sign but ah well lol.)
The people were great, I had fun and it was nice to see people's faces for a change that I never had a face to put towards... it was surreal really. If I had the income to support it, I'd go to move events across the country! (I'm talking game, anime, etc- not just Sonic...but I still like Sonic lol.)
It was fun to hear at least one of my questions asked at the Q & A (word for word that is). ...|D Of course no one knew it was mine but me though lol.
I enjoyed the announcements and the Wreck-it-Ralph stuff too. Even if for some reason the movie bombs, I'll go see it to play some serious iSpy.
You want me to be dead honest? ... < .<; I did not expect first. Seriously.
Here are my main reason why:
- The costume wasn't completed.
I'd probably say that was about... 75% constructed at the time it was brought down.
Stuff I wanted to do but didn't because of health concerns/time (mostly time):
- Back piece with shaped jet blaster/engine/turbine/etc. (mostly to time, but when I felt how hot I was with there there was alone...it was good for my health too)
- LEDs in the visor and jet engine (I wouldn't have been able to see if the visor had lights...at all, safety first~)
- Mock pelvis (basically to make the transition smoother from torso to hips...again no time)
- A better face plate thing... (it did not want to stay in place despite wanting it to be removable for air, food and drink...which it was, but it just didn't get back into place right)
- A fan (lack of time to help the head breath better despite the airways hidden)
...But apparently the reception was grand. Aside from the Crush-40 & Cash-Cash concert, that's mostly what my night was. Every good...5-10 minutes or less it'd be:
"Hey can I take your picture?"
"Hey can I take a picture with you?"
"Hey- LISTEN!" (Actually not this one, but couldn't resist. ...Although I did see a Link at the place I checked into...)
Senoue and Iizuka seemed to enjoy it, as did everyone near everyone else there. That's plenty enough for me~
What the hell am I going to do for next year?!
