So back on Saturday the 19th of July the Manchester Gmex Center, now renamed Manchester Central, had another MCM Expo and I decided to go in my improved Neo from The Matrix outfit and check it out.
Brought my camera with me and I photographed some of the better cosplay outfits I saw.
They’re not the best photos in the world but you can still see what’s going on.
Nobody ever asked for a photo of me in my Neo outfit though. Bummer. Guess it’s not as good as I think it is. One guy pointed out I didn’t have his array of holsters all over his body. Well, where the heck am I supposed to get those? I’m not making them…last time I tried that they pretty much fell apart at the seams.
I ran into my real life friend, Luna. I kinda knew I’d bump into her eventually. She almost never misses an Expo. Especially not when it’s in Manchester. She was going round with two or three of her friends so once I revealed to her I was present I tagged along for a bit and caught up with what was new as best I could.
She actually appears in one of my pictures, there. She’s the female Sword Art Online character.
She had arranged a poke’meet with some poke’mon cosplayers, so all my pictures of the group of Poke’mon cosplayers are from that.
I didn’t really get to do much else, but I had fun.
Last weekend Chadkirk had its annual festival…so I went there for the soul reason that I knew that every year some falconers came bringing some captive birds of prey.
The birds of prey weren’t all that showed up this year, though. Some bright spark had brought along a couple of metal statues of C-3PO and R2-D2 from Star Wars. That was quite an amusing sight.
Other than that, there wasn’t much of interest there. We had a bit of a walk round Chadkirk itself but that was it.
Finally…I came across these two Rage Comics that I can really relate to.
That’s happened to me a few times with a box of matches. I wish they’d more clearly label which way up it was.
And then there’s this one;
I don’t eat as extremely unhealthily as the guy in the comic but I swear to goddess it’s so cussing true!! I try to excersize and eat right, and I gain weight…I stop caring and eat unhealthily, I lose weight. Explain that one if you can, lifestyle experts!
There was even an article in the newspaper recently…some celebrity started dieting to try to lose some weight…she lost a bit at first, but then ended up heavier than when she started! So it’s not just me.
No wonder folks tend to be unmotivated to excersize and eat right, when it’s so much effort for ending up with more of what you’re trying to lose.
My Scotland Trip Animated Intro is so close to complete now, I can taste it. Again, it’s not gonna be exactly how I imagined, but it’s the best I can do and I just can’t be arsed to improve it as that would just take even longer and I’ve wasted enough time with it as it is. I need to get it done so I can move on to other things. And I’m NOT doing full animation again until I get a full version of a flash creation programme on my new computer.
Welp. I think that’s about all I got to talk about for now…
So until next time,
Ciao for now,
Cordially, The Blue Fox
