      I had a wonderful time in Seattle with @DevilMayCrye and am thrilled that he fit right in with my family. We had so much fun, and I wish it wasn't over so soon. Especially since he had to go back to Australia. And I'm going back to trying to save up so I can follow for good.


      We went to the Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Aquarium, we poked around the Scifi Museum and Pike Place Market, and we even got to go aboard the Lady Washington (ship from Pirates of the Caribbean and OUAT) while she was docked in Kirkland.

      Fun bit from the Lady Washington: One of the deckhands saw DMC's Penny shirt and started geeking out about RWBY. He was glad to see other fans of it, and apparently wants more Ren.


      Got to switch to a new phone and now have Pokemon Go. If only I was in an area riddled with pokestops.... Rather than only having 2 or 3 anywhere even remotely close. At least one of them is just a few doors down from my place?
      Given my location and its drain on battery and whatnot, I'll likely not get to play that often now that I've gone up enough levels to need to start grinding. A foreseen problem, but still a problem.


      Also, we got to scar my father for life by playing CAH with him. An excellent activity. I highly recommend it.


      I laughed and smiled so much for two whole weeks. Going back to work sucks, but that's not news to anyone who's even remotely had a job....

    • Smuggler’s Bounty 5: Jabba's Palace (spoilers)

      Ember

      It’s that time again!


      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o6_500.jpg

      Hard to tell in the image but.. this box is big. Noticeably bigger than the previous boxes. Lets see what’s inside!



      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o1_500.jpg

      Patch and pin first… A Gamorrean Guard pin and a Boushh/Leia patch. Not bad. Usual deal. Lets move on.



      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o2_500.jpg

      These items are both new styles to the company. Pop Tops and Plush. These are the very first such items ever to be shared with customers apparently.

      • The hat (which says “programmed for etiquette”) is too big to be comfortable on me. I can resize it in the back so its tight around, but the dome of it doesn’t really sit on my head well. Not quite as adaptable as a shirt, so kinda bummed on that. Its a great idea, but I can’t really use it at all comfortably.
      • Boba Fett though? Utterly thrilled. I’m a sucker for any and all Boba Fett merch. He’s adorable! He’ll go very well with his big bro, the Fabrikation Fett. Give me anything Fett and I’ll be a very happy camper.

      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o3_500.jpg

      • Large Jabba mug… eh. I don’t see the appeal of drinking something out of Jabba’s gross head, honestly, and I don’t really much tend towards the shape of their mugs. I just find them kinda bulky and awkward. But I am rather small, so I’m likely the minority there. Not really crazy about the mug. I’ll probably sell it.
      • R2D2 is pretty cute in his sail barge ‘outfit’, as it were. This shape is a new droid design they cooked up, and will apparently be the shape for all future R2 pops. Not jumping around excitedly about it, but I don’t hate it. Might keep it, might sell it, might give it to a family member if they fall in love with it.

      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o5_500.jpg

      It seems they started putting inserts into the boxes to describe the items, which I’m really digging. I like that they are able to give new information about the peeks we’re getting at future merch and designs in these exclusives.



      tumblr_oamokhiElf1tcwlp6o4_500.jpg

      Overall I feel kind of ok with this box, but not ecstatic. I wasn’t really expecting it to be as cool as the Bounty Hunter box, and that’s mostly a matter of preference. I don’t really blame them for that. That’s how mystery boxes work. Each one is gonna have a different coolness haul according to different people. Again, i wish the hat had fit, and would really rather they stick to wearables that are a little more adaptable to different shapes. Looking forward to the possibility of more plushes, and I really hope they keep doing the informational insert in future boxes.


      September box is…. Death Star!
      Not as big a fan of the Imperials as other aspects of SW, but lets see what they do with it… Could be cool. :)

    • RTX was an awesome blur! (Long Post)

      2 years ago

      Ember

      We drove in Wednesday evening, many thanks to @SynOfGrave for letting us crash at his place!


      Thursday was full of getting ourselves checked in. I was with RT Sidequest as a Spectre this year so I helped out with booth setup, and then had to get ready for the Cocktail Party/Charity Auction. I worked registration, where it became apparent we cannot spell special guests’ last names to save our lives… (Particularly Brandon, Chris, and Josh’s. Whoops sorry guys…)

      Got a lot of compliments on my outfit, which I really needed. I don’t do fancy dress very often, and it was my first time with that outfit, and I’m SUPER self-conscious about fancy clothing. So I was glad I got the confidence I needed pretty early on. (And thanks to @niriall and the others, who helped me learn how to do makeup. I suck at girly things, I swear)


      Everything seemed to go very well at the auction. I don’t know how much was ultimately raised for the kids, but I believe the naked cardboard Gus alone went for 500. Damn guys!
      Met and hung out with some awesome folks during my break, including @lambency (who gave me a Neo card and chibi Bumbleby buttons!) and @SailorGirl81 who I got pictures with as we became total dorks with fake swords. (I both look forward to and dread seeing how those turned out. Oh boy XD)

      Basically crashed into bed that night cause it was honestly the most exhausting day….and RTX itself hadn’t even started! (And curse you, stupid lady stilts!)



      Lined up early Friday to get into the RT store to get what I needed from there first thing. While in line I saw a kickass Wash cosplay who I spent the next couple days trying to find to get a picture. Spotted him in the first hour of RTX… and immediately lost him.
      Spent most of the day wandering around a bit and checking out cosplays, trying to get something to eat, checking out the Expo hall. It was basically my rest day. Saw Meg in the main hall and got a selfie with her and a chance to bid her a farewell. After that I was killing time till I got to the RWBY Music panel. I wasn’t able to go to the concert Saturday, so I wanted to be sure I went to their panel. (Got awesome front row seats.)
      Actually got a lazy evening to hang out with @Myshu and SynOfGrave when they got off Guardian duty, and had a snazzy dinner where we were quite out of place. But dang that was a tasty short rib.



      Saturday I was up bright and even earlier to grab a crepe breakfast and get in line for the LGBT Panel. Guys, it was wonderful, and I am so thrilled I was able to go. The room was PACKED, and one of the speakers was there to represent asexuality, which was such a pleasant surprise. A lot was also said about bi-erasure, which as a bisexual woman I greatly appreciated. There were many moments that almost brought tears to my eyes, and the video Patrick(1 of 3) showed finally succeeded in doing so. Awesome job guys, and thank you!

      Had booth duty with SideQuest in the afternoon. We had some gorgeous shirts and pins this year, as well as beer glasses and more bandanas!

      Got myself to the Cards Against Humanity panel in the evening. No way I was missing such a fun play through of my favorite game. And it did not disappoint.

      Had to get to Buffalo Billiards to set up for Barlympics after that. Boy that was…a thing which happened. That was a lot of drunk people. I’m not a go-out-to-drink sort of person, so let me tell you, it was a new experience. xD
      In case anyone is curious, Orange (Funhaus) Team won by a lot.



      Sunday I had to get up EVEN earlier cause I basically had to pack up everything into the car before getting breakfast and lining up for the RT Podcast (to anyone who has not yet watched it…vomit warning. Seriously. There’s some gross stuff.)

      The morning was rough. Early wakeups are never an easy thing for me. It felt like the hottest day, the crepe place even had a line (and got my order wrong, good thing my banana allergy isn’t deadly, just very uncomfortable). But after that bumpy start, the rest of the day was amazing! Did some shopping in the Expo hall, met up with @Kiaxet and we decided to check out the Five Nights at Roosterteeth Immersion Experience thingy. On our way there, we ran into @Yssa, who joined up with us, and we were able to cling together during it. It wasn’t as panic-inducing as I expected (I have an anxiety disorder, so most haunted house things tend to make me flip out), instead it was just good spooky fun.
      After that we ran into @Samantha and her family. Her son was having a grand time whacking her cousin with a Kylo Ren lightsaber, while the group of us discussed the existential horror that is Thomas the Tank Engine (guys I lived with Thomas-obsessed kids. I know way more about it than I wish I did. That universe is messed up…)
      Saw some awesome cosplayers, chatted with a few folks, then made my way to get autographs. Turns out Myshu, @Kempob, and Sailorgirl were in charge of the line I was in, so I got to chat off and on with them. As well as some lovely people in line with me. (And @madmanmoe even showed up to say hi)
      So I met Jen Brown, Jason Rose, and @Shannon. I mostly kept my chill. I’m pretty sure. I really hope I did. XD
      After that I basically just wandered the Expo hall until it closed… and finally found that Wash cosplay I saw on the first day! Win!

      Had dinner at IHOP, invited others to join me but alas, I was alone for the meal. It was damned tasty though. Mmm savory crepes….
      Headed to Billiards to setup for the Lounge… for us to discover there was a scheduling SNAFU and everything started an hour early. Oops.


      The Lounge was a good, chill ending to the weekend and got to see more folks one last time before heading out. Finally got a chance to meet @williams in person (He’s such a sweetheart), and got to personally thank Mica for being a part of making the LGBT panel happen.

      We stayed at SynOfGrave’s a couple nights to recover. This included mead, Ant-Man, and Mahoromatic. And possibly using black powder to blow up his backyard…. I blame the mead. Don’t drink on July 4th in Texas. You do crazy things.... like blow up the backyard.


      When we got home yesterday morning, we discovered the cat had puked everywhere…and attracted flies. So I had a fun day of cleaning and poor Shu had a fun day at work. And I got called in to work a day early for today. Welcome home to us, huh? XD



      All in all, though, it was an AMAZING weekend. I had loads of fun, and did so much. It helped incredibly in the battle against my anxiety and to get out of the mindset I’ve been in for so long. The one telling me I can’t do things on my own. Most of the weekend, I did on my own steam, and money, and choice. And it turned out fantastic.

      Thanks to everyone I met, and worked alongside, and friends I got to give hugs to. So much happened and its already become something of a blur. It was an experience I greatly needed. I don’t know where I’ll be next year, so its still undecided if I’ll be there. But I have no regrets about it this year. Not even a little.


      Wow… What a weekend.

      Pics are on the way. Still sorting them out....

      I’m gonna mostly be offline for the whole weekend, of course. Might check in when I have adequate wifi and time. But I’ll just be on mobile and really busy.


      Any of you guys going to RTX, maybe I’ll see you there? ('ll be wearing my fox tail and possible my cute hat a lot of the time)
      Anyone not, I promise I’ll bring back pictures!

      Anyone planning to go to the LGBT panel? I have plans to try to get to it. Not decided on any others yet. If I've got folks to hang with, maybe we'll check out some stuff together over the weekend?


      Get hype!

    • So Tired Of It

      2 years ago

      Ember

      My grandmother says that in the backlash of what happened in Orlando, her mosque has been threatened enough to require police presence to prevent anything from happening.


      She is in Seattle. Which isn’t perfect by a long shot, but better than a lot of places in this country. But the ugly shows through at times like this…


      (Seattle has had a HUGE LGBTA+ population since I was wee. And I was at a queer youth shelter years ago when cops came in to watch the place because of a bomb threat. In an “accepting” city.)


      Both my Queer and Muslim family are shaken and heartbroken right now as a result of the hatred in some people, both across the country, and while living in a region that is supposedly ‘open-minded’.


      I just…. *sigh*
      I'm so tired of this....

      IT’S HERE!!!!


      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o1_1280.jpg

      It has Boba Fett on it! Its so cool!



      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o2_1280.jpg

      Pin and patch are Bossk and Boba Fett, respectively. I bet Bossk is jealous that Boba’s is bigger. (The patch is totally going on a patch bag with other proud displays of my fandoms when I get around to putting one together)



      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o3_1280.jpg

      Shirt! Showcasing some awesome and classic bounty hunters (poor Dengar gets left out however. Don’t worry Dengar, not everyone has forgotten you) It DOES include Zuckuss, 4-LOM, IG-88, Boba Fett, and Bossk. Pretty cool shirt. I will wear it proudly. Its a size small and fits me comfortably. It also feels lighter than the Cantina shirt. Which is also good.



      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o4_1280.jpgtumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o5_1280.jpg

      Mother. Fucking. Flying. Boba Pop. This was exactly what I was hoping for and exactly what I got. Thank you Funko, I love you. He looks so badass. Its a shame nobody was here when I opened this. People missed out on the fangirl squealing noises I made when I saw it.



      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o6_1280.jpg

      And the second pop, IG-88! ( @DevilMayCrye is totally laying claim to this one. I know how much he likes this guy. Just don’t let him upload himself into any superweapons, please? Please?!) Looks pretty cool, though nowhere near as epic as the Boba one.



      tumblr_o7jjiv7i401tcwlp6o7_1280.jpg

      Overall, very pleased with this box. I have been waiting for this theme since they first announced the subscription, and I was not disappointed. Perhaps anyone who dislikes Boba Fett was, but I am not one of those heretics. ;p
      I was very excited for this box, and am still very much so. Incredibly happy with what I got in this one.

      Next box will be Jabba’s Palace themed. Not sure what kind of things will be in that one yet, but fingers are crossed for disguised Lando.

        There are three clans in California. I don't know what part of CA Oceanside is, but it shouldn't be hard to find someone. There are ALOT of Mercs in that state. Even more up here, in Washington.

        Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club. They are helping me build mine.

        They also have advice fo alien species who need some specially modified helmets, such as Twi'liks. A member of my own clan is building a Nautolan Mando. He's needing to get pretty crafty to build around his 14 tenticles. Lol.

        Just don't try to do a Jedi/Sith/Mandalorian mix. They hate that.
