Fan Expo and other events

Last Sunday (September 3rd) me and daddy went to Fan Expo again, unlike the previous few years we went on our own. Sure it was a little scary for daddy at first, but he was excited to show off his new costume.

Now, before I go into details about what happened on Sunday, I should tell you about the adventure we had last Thursday. Me and daddy took Wheel-Trans ALL the way out to almost where grandma lives, there's a costume shop out there that has the helmet daddy likes, then we went all the way back across the city to another bunch of stores. Daddy picked up some special paint, and some brushes, and picked up some more food for me and Chewie and a new food bin (one doesn't hold enough food for the two of us for a month).

This is what the helmet looks like fresh out of the package.

Now, from Thursday until Saturday night daddy worked on painting the helmet to match his new costume.
That's daddy's new costume on the left, it's still a Mandalorian bounty hunter, only camouflaged.
The other guy standing with daddy is Lando Calrissian, in the words of Han Solo "He's a card player, gambler, scoundrel."

Daddy also picked up a few new weapons for his costumes, you see the two red things sticking up, those are two throwing knives.
Not to worry, they're plastic
He also added a shirken to his bladed weapons.
This is what it looked like when daddy bought it.
This is what it looks like after daddy painted it.
We also got a picture with a slimy space slug
I don't like that creature, the slug or the monkey looking thing
We also came across some of the leading ladies from Star Wars
These girls are just missing one, Padme, then it would be a complete set.
From right to left, Jyn Erso (Rogue One), Princess Leia Organa-Solo, and two Rey's, the one with the lightsaber is from Force Awakens, and the one with the staff is from later in the same movie when she goes in search of Luke Skywalker.

Speaking of Star Wars movies and new creatures, episode 8 The Last Jedi has a new critter.
This thing here is a Porg, they inhabit the island that Luke is on.
Oh, and a new droid.

This is BB-9E a First Order BB unit (like BB-8) only so much cooler.
I'm not sure how either of these things fit into the movie, but there's only 99 more days until we find out.

The two spinners that daddy had ordered (and hoped would be here for Fan Expo) arrived on Wednesday, 3 days after what daddy wanted them for. Oh, well, at least they are here now and daddy can get to work making them fit with his costumes.
All three spinners that will go with daddy's costumes, the top two are the new ones.

Daddy painted them to fit better with the theme of his costume, he's just got to put some finishing touches to them.

On Saturday me and daddy are going to the Beach Celtic Festival, Granty Flo is going to come too, and Uncle Tim says he may pop around too.
But, it's Sunday I'm really looking forward to. Sunday is BUNFEST!!!!!!!!!

Unlike previous years, we won't be volunteering this year, we're just going for the fun (and to get toys and treats). And daddy's new friend (that we met last year at Fan Expo, introduced by uncle Tim) is going to drive us there and back and hang out with us until it's time to go. But just because we aren't covering Bunfest officially this year, we're still going to get lots of pictures for this blog.
Oh, and daddy says I may have to ride in the carseat that Sunki had, I'm not sure about that idea, I like cuddling with daddy when we go around town and I can't sit in my stroller.
