So I’m just getting everything ready for the GB screening tonight, so there really isn’t much time to talk about stuff, although I’m sure I’ll somehow turn this into a monstrosity of a post. Feeling pretty pumped to be honest about the screening, it’s the first GB event of the year so it’s always feels somewhat refreshing to put the pack on again (ignoring the fact that I only had it on less than 2 months ago). I must admit it’s always a fun time hanging with the rest of the WAGB in uniform, especially all the love we get from the public, it honestly make the whole thing a great experience.
That being said it might be the only time putting on this
particular pack this year, as for Oz Comic-Con and maybe Supanova I’m planning
on wearing the cartoon or Real Ghostbusters style pack and uniform, which will
be a lot lighter and will be a break from the regular gear. I doubt many people
will notice the difference, but it’ll be fun to go in a different direction
with the GB gear.
For those that don’t know I first started doing the
Ghostbusters stuff in 2010, my first public appearance was at a small screening
for some comedy show. I showed up in a badly dyed flightsuit with GB2 patch and
name tag, shitty homemade belt, and my first pair of Ecto-goggles; which
fortunately was enough to be recognised as a buster but I always regretted not
having a pack at that time. After that I finally made some contacts locally
(being Dave and Brenton), got my gear together (somewhat) and the first
unofficial WAGB bust of Supanova that year. During the rest of the year the
only other time I wore the get up was for a costume party, which I won... but
only because the birthday girl didn’t know what I was but thought I was
actually carrying an actual heavy metal pack on my back (she was 70 at the
Okay this is turning into my Ghostbusting memories post, so
I’ll leave it at that as I think getting into the whole WAGB backstory should
be for another time; especially as I still want to get stuff done tonight!
