Cosplay beach party

Yesterday me and daddy went to a cosplay beach party, daddy didn't go in costume (he learned his lesson from previous years where he'd ended up in the hospital) I did go in costume and had tonnes of fun, I even got to use my beach towel I got for my birthday.

The first cosplay beach party we went to, it's the one daddy ended up in the hospital
Shaking it out before a good groom

I'm not sure what to do on this green stuff

It smells like I could eat it

Something going on over there that I disapprove of

Daddy plucked my butt, that's the fur that came out

I think she's dressed as an anime character called D.Va 
Daddy laid out my beach towel for me

Showing off my beach towel

I might decide to flop on this, but not right now

Time for a groom

Washing my foot

A professional picture taker took this one of me
When we were walking back to where we were being picked up by Wheel-Trans daddy found some sand for me to try.
Not sure I like this stuff

I told daddy that I didn't like sand, it's course and irritating and gets everywhere.

Nope still don't like this stuff

I'm going over there on the green stuff

We also got the last two pieces of the prize we won back in March, a card game and $25 (it was supposed to be a gift card for a wig, but neither daddy or me wear a wig, so we got the cash value.
This is the card game, daddy is going to sell it or give it away. Considering we don't have friends that play these kinds of games.
Daddy also got a few of the things he ordered off the internet.
This is supposed to be a blade called a Kurkhi, which is a knife the Gurkha use. It's a lot smaller than what it was supposed to be.

The blade is made in the style of Damascus Steel.
 Damascus steel is made by "folding" the metal over and over as the blade is being forged, that's how it gets such an interesting pattern.

Daddy also got a replacement for the pen he lost, this time though, it's chained to daddy's belt so it can't be lost.
We've also got our tickets for Fan Expo at the end of this month, and tickets to the CNE (also at the end of the month).
Ohhh, and on Tuesday me and daddy are taking my granty Flo to see Christopher Robin, I picked out her present and I can't wait for her to see it.
I got a new friend to go with us on Tuesday, this is Eeyore 

He makes a great pillow.
Using my best "I'm so hungry" face to get treats after our shopping trip.

Star Wars week

Today is May 1st which means it's Empire day 5/01 (501st Legion), tomorrow is my Empire day 5/02 (502nd Hopper's Paw, that's my group on Facebook). May 4th, of course, is Star Wars day, and May 5th is also called Revenge of the fifth (Revenge of the Sith), that day we are going to a new comicon, this one is WAY out near the airport at a mall (me and daddy stopped in there last month on our way to and from the Pet Expo).

I sort of forgot to finish this post, so I'm going to jump ahead to today and update what has been happening since then.

The May 4th celebration was awesome as always, we also got video greetings from some Star Wars celebs, the last one was my favourite, Alan Turduk (who played K2S0 in Rogue One). Because next years date falls on a Saturday they are going to plan an all-day event, and some of the celebs may come too.
Saturday was really cool, we went to that mall we stopped at on the way to the Pet Expo in April, you know, the one with the amusement park inside. Well, that mall had what is possibly the smallest con ever, there were 10 vendors, no celebs (not even Z list actors, which would be scraping the bottom of the bucket), and a wrestling show, which to be honest was the only remotely interesting thing that they had, if for no other reason then the wrestlers were dressed up in pop-culture costumes (Green and Blue Rangers from Power Rangers, and Elmo, who won his match against Spongebob). We did, however, meet up with daddy's cousin and his partner (also daddy's old high school friend), and we hung out for the day.
Daddy says his costume is finally finished, this was taken at the mallcon

Daddy bought this drawing of Boba, it's our first piece of Star Wars art that we paid money for.

Daddy bought these thinking they were props (plastic) with the intention to add them to his costume.......

......But, there's a tiny problem, these throwing knives are actually real, so they won't be becoming part of his costume.
All of May we were hyped to go see the new Han Solo movie, which was called Solo: a Star Wars Story. Well, daddy surprised me with a birthday present, he took me to see it on June 2nd, it was awesome!!!!! 
Our ticket to go see it.

See, this is my Birthday boy button that I've had since I turned 1

Rechinning to make sure everybun knows it's mine.

My friends at the Disney store made this extra special birthday button for me.

This is my present from daddy, I wasn't allowed to see it until my birthday, luckily it was the next day, so I didn't have long to wait.

The family birthday present, daddy says it had a bad influence on me.

This is my birthday present, a BIG beach towel/blanket

Checking out my towel, now if daddy would only take me to the beach

I like this towel

However I disapprove of daddy covering me up with it.

This is my birthday cake.

Chewies Birthday cake.
Daddy also found a few things from the new Han Solo movie, at first we were rather disappointed in the lack of stuff for the movie, but since the opening a lot more stuff has come out.
Back Pack, wouldn't hold much for us, but I guess it's more for kids.

Daddy did buy one of these water bottles, but it's wrong, I'm his co-pilot, cause Chewie stays home.

These are Han Solo's lucky Sabbacc dice, you see them in The Last Jedi and they are featured quite a bit in the Solo movie.

They're my lucky dice now

Hung in my stroller, it's what passes as a cockpit for me.

More Star Wars

Yeah, Yeah, I know, almost all my blogs have something to do with Star Wars, at least lately. Well, that's not going to change anytime soon, at least not with this post.

In about two weeks it'll be May 4th, and you know what that means, it means it's time for the annual Star Wars day party. This time it's at a different location, the place it had been held at closed last year, so this year it's going to be at a bigger more accessible place called The Rec Room. It's near where we've been before for different events (CN Tower, Skydome, the convention centre etc), we'd never even seen it, and we walked right past it last year during Doors Open. We've got our ticket to go, and I can't wait because daddy is going to bring me up on stage during the costume contest this year.

Daddy ordered a new patch for his costume, and it got here last week, this one is really neat because it means daddy is also a pirate.
The top is what it looked like when it got here, the bottom is what it looks like now, way cooler I think.
Oh, and yesterday me and daddy went shopping, and we stopped in at my favorite Disney Store to say hi to my friends there. We also found a couple of new products from the new Solo movie, the rest is going to be released by the end of the month..... maybe.
The new backpack, it's neat but not something daddy wants

This water bottle is something daddy is likely to get
Last weekend we had a major storm come through on Saturday and Sunday, Sunday morning we woke up to this scene outside.
That's not all snow, some of it is ice pellets.
I should point out that the above picture was taken April 15th, 2018, we're not supposed to get that kind of weather in April, it completely messed up a large portion of our week. Thankfully the weather is warming up now, and most of that mess is melted away. Plus the large chunks of ice that were falling off the CN Tower have melted away (one large chunk smashed through the roof of the Skydome, causing the Blue Jays to play only the second doubleheader in the dome's history).

One last thing, daddy found a patch when he was looking at the Mando pirate patch, this one had a moral boosting motto on it, it went "God will judge my enemies, I'll arrange the meeting". Well, daddy converted it into something more in keeping with Mandalorian traditions. The new version goes "KAD WILL JUDGE MY ENEMIES, I'LL ARRANGE THE MEETING". Kad is the Mandalorian God of destruction, in doing research to find out about Mando beliefs daddy found that they are somewhat similar to the old Norse Gods (Odin, Thor, and Loki).
Here's what the patch would look like (it's just a rough layout for now), and it's kind of interesting for daddy to wear as the words are all in Mandalorian, so unless someone can actually read it, it's just another thing on his costume.

Oh, yeah, one more thing, on May 5th me and daddy are going to be attending a new comicon, this one is at a mall. Remember the mall we were dropped off at when we went to the Pet Expo? Yeah, that's where it's being held, and hopefully, we'll get to meet up with daddy's cousin Andrew (my granty Flo's grandson), and his partner Scotty.
