My second Hasegawa kit – unlike my first foray into the Virtual On franchise two years ago with my Apharmd the Hatter model kit, this Temjin Type a8 is actually a commission build from a customer who happened to purchase my Apharmd whilst it was on sale through eBay.
Day 4 – as usual usually our unwinding and kick-back day. No armor or cosplay of any sorts of course – just some good ‘ol fashion comfortable exploring of the last few halls we haven’t quite combed clean yet. This would usually also be our buying day where we hunt down all the nice last-day-deals in the Exhibit Hall, but we rushed in and made the bulk of our purchases yesterday during Day 3.
Day 3 – finally attended an actual panel/screening and cracked out the suit for the last time. We usually don’t armor up for three days straight, but this year it was good enough to make an exception for. Only a day left now until the ‘con officially wraps up, though ironically tickets for AX 2017 are already on sale.
Day 2 has only just wrapped up, but by the time we got home it had felt like years passed between the morning and evening. Unlike yesterday, we actually set out today to accomplish a few goals and attend an event or two. The armor was becoming worn, but Day 1 had orientated us well enough to the Expo that we now knew how best to operate through the ever-ebbing ocean of people at the ‘con.
Last year I said I wouldn’t be coming back – that I was done with AX because it wasn’t quite as enjoyable anymore. I obviously lied. Back for another annual show, though I’d be lying again if I said my main motivation for coming at all wasn’t because I co-built a suit of Gundam armor to show off at the ‘con.
