14. This trooper made a grave mistake by asking the Japanese schoolgirl (Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill Vol. 1) what she’s going to use that meteor hammer for.


16. She’s a nice girl actually.


18. Taking a walk outside after the press conference and mingling with the public.


20. This ojou-chan is  so cute. She doesn’t even know how to hold a rifle. ^^;
Guess which one is yours truly?

21. The press conference venue is near the Merlion Park.  The Merlion in the background is a well known local tourism icon.



24. Another lovely schoolgirl. Good thing this one doesn’t carry a weapon. ^^;



27. Till the next mission, TK8316 will sign off for now and enjoy the sea view.

    Just curious,

    does ur ‘TK8316’ got air-conditioning system in the suit or not?
    If no, how u endure wearing it in the outdoor esp. the hot weather now???

    • gordon says:

      the fun of trooping and droid hunting make TK8316 forgets about the heat. ^^;

      • Jungwon says:

        😛 Yup, Happy trooping, TK8316. Then do drink more water.

        • Garion says:

          Which leads me to another question: how do you ‘release bodily fluids’ while still in costume? ^^;

          BTW nice coverage Gordon! Hope to catch u guys at the STGCC. Are you planning on going for other cosplay/game events this yr as well?

          • gordon says:

            we usually sweat it out.

            yup i’m definitely keen on going for cosplay and gaming events. in fact there’s one gaming event mid may which i’ll be attending.
