Yes, yes, I know he's supposed to have Pepsi but when someone asked if I'd like a drink, I was brought a Coke.
Just another picture of my new Optimus Prime costume at TFcon 2011, this time illustrating how comfortable it was. I designed the torso to be two separate pieces and so the middle piece can 'telescope' into the upper piece, allowing for me to take on a variety of poses - including sitting.
I easily spent at least half an hour just sitting there and very much enjoyed not having to get up anytime someone wanted a picture. It seems Optimus taking a break is a fantastic photo op. (aha, photo 'op', 'Optimus Prime', hilarious this one is).
If my schedule allows me to, I'd like to bring Prime to FanExpo in downtown Toronto at the end of the month. I'm not keen on the convention itself for a variety of reasons but I do like to hang out with friends and show off my costumes. Updates on whether or not I'm going will be posted in my journal here.
