    Hello 405th! Just finished up my ODST build and somewhere in the thread, the HALO Bio-Foam canister was brought up. This got me thinking and I decided to create my own thread as I go through this trial and error process.

    The overall idea is to have the ability to carry cold water at a con while keeping the look of the costume intact. Here are the images of what I have worked up so far. There is still quite a bit of finishing work that needs to be done, but so far, so good. I'll post more as the process comes along. Enjoy!

    This is awesome! I am probably going to steal this idea, just so you know.

    And by probably I mean definitely.

    Keeps the hydration and in character at the same time. Great idea. Why not a hydro pack in a backpack? Just curious?

    This is a fantastic idea. I tried to make one that shot out whip cream. It kinda worked, but not the greatest lol. Yours is definitely a more healthy and smart choice :)

    Very cool. What material is that white part?

    It is a plastic called HDPE. I bought a 12" X 24" X 1/8" piece and so far it has been quite useful in a wide variety of things. The only real concern I have right now regarding this build is the manner in which is all being held together. I am using el cheapo super glue and it feels fairly secure, but I believe the repeated twisting of the cap might cause it to break off. I think I will look further into using a dedicated plastic bonding epoxy and may pull the handle off, sand down the super glued parts and use the epoxy. Just trying to build it robust like to avoid the need for future repairs.

    Here is the link to the HDPE plastic that I used.
