Comic Fiesta 2010: Cosplay 4

Comic Fiesta 2010: Cosplay 4

No idea, is this from a computer game? I’m so not a gamer, having purchased only the console in my life: the wii, the ds lite, and the dreamcast. With the exemption of the dreamcast, my broke ass sold everything game related last year to raise cash for the move to Asia. I do sometimes wipe off the dust and play with the dreamcast – mostly nba2k and Sonic. It’s still got the thrills, let me tell you. Maybe it’s nostalgia talking, I mean it was the first ever console I bought with my hard earned money after years of scrounging by using Sega consoles owned by friends. And yes, I bought it mainly for Shenmue. Remember how awesome it was when it came out?! Holy crap, that woulda made a life-long Sega fan outta me.

Nearly a decade later and I’m still bitter Shenmue II wasn’t released for the Dreamcast. BITTER.

So… Yeah, this rant had nothing to do with the picture.

Making progress

Making progress

EVERYTHING was covered in a horrible dark dust that makes the skin itchy. (Asbestos? Fiberglass?) I gave everything a good brushing outside, brought them in, and began work on the 1993 blue logo model.

I took the keycaps off and washed them in a medium mixing bowl with soap and hot water, then left them to soak for awhile. The chassis got a scrubbing with soapy water, and canned air to the insides. The cables were left in a large mixing bowl with soap and hot water, with everything submerged but the ends (I checked for cuts first). I rinsed the soap out of the keycaps, then laid them out on a towel to try. Once everything was dry, I re-assembled.

The biggest sticking point (pun intended) was the larger keys, which do not use 2-piece keycaps. They would get stuck at the bottom when pressed. I thought about lubricants, but eventually settled on pounding the hell out of them, which mostly worked. Currently the only large key that sticks most of the time is the numeric +. All of the regular keys work fine.

I plugged it into a computer and tested each key. Success! All of the cords work too.

This one is usable, but is still far from clean. I may need to go over each one again and completely disassemble the chassis to actually get them clean.

Oh, and it turns out I’m missing two caps, numeric 4, and `. Maybe this weekend I’ll go back to the yard and take a second look, then look online for replacements.
