It's taken a few days, but I am now the proud owner of a Shem of the Solar Metal. I've managed to get some of each of the other loot types (Signets, Flares, Bullion, etc.). Plus, this weekend will be VERY busy IRL, so I don't know how much more of the event I intend to participate in.
I was kind of whinging a bit about not having gotten all the parts. But fellow Beyonder Galactrix (known in-game as "Exceeder") was generous with both time and Genizahs, and I managed to get three of the six parts tonight during the Show, along with the achievement "Some Assembly Required," and the gilded top hat.
So here I am. I almost wish I had the whole set of shems on a single character, but that's not a huge deal to me. I am excited to have this little guy, though. Now all I need to do is sneak into Fusang and get that Lore. . .
