Hellowwwww ! Just came back from my first run in the MKVI suit at FACTS 2016 and it was a blast. Most importantly : a BIG HELLO and High-Five to B;Carter and Johans' Noble Six for being there and the face-to-face with you both. Vous-etes SUPER SYMPA tous les deux !! I'm really looking forward to bump into you guys in the future. And Johan : FIX that Visor man ! If you need help with it, I can come with some ideas and help to make it work better ! What I mean to say is : At first, 100% visability for the wearer of the suit was primordial out of pure self-interest, as I didn't want to miss out on stuff to see which I would not have because of the physical limitations of the armor we're wearing. But today I've seen that a big part of the fun of this stuff is actually SEEING the other people's reactions to yourself. That's a totally new concept to me as in my work/professional life, my actions are mostly invisable (techs tend to stay invisable while keeping stuff running, we're supposed to be invisable in the ideal world) so I tend to stay below the radar on a daily basis. But having kids come up to you, some of them little higher than my MA5C asking for a picture .... the look in those eyes? Priceless ! Up till today, that thought never even crossed my mind. Missing out on that is missing out on a lot. Your suit looked AWESOME and fits your .... impressive frame. (I felt very, very small next to you !). And GET SOME AIRFLOW ! I was walking around in a 2x5cm Fan cooled helmet and had no issues with heat, but I switched of the fans just for a test and after 5 minutes just standing there became really uncomfortable, let alone the idea of walking in such conditions. While I never thought my armor is that much to look at -and I still don't as there's SO much room for imporovement-, I stopped counting the times I was asked for a picture or video once I hit the 100 mark, which was in the very early afternoon after just 2 hours at the Con. My daughter was so nice to take a crapload of pictures of the meet&greets with other cosplayers, I'll make sure to post of couple of them sometime tomorrow.. While it was a lot of fun, it was also a learning experience for me. A lot of things worked really well. Others didn't quite work mainly because of easy-fixable issues which I didn't think about when preparing the suit for the Con. I'll make sure to make a little list of the stuff that caused issues and could have been prevented some frustration during the cosplay. But for tonight, I'll sign off and I'll put some extra info and pictures in the thread. PS : my sweet daughter tells me some pictures will be blurry as "her photo taking skills s*ck big time", but I'm grateful she did her best. PPS : mounting an action camera on the helmet worked out sweet. The thing filmed for 8 hours in one stretch without failing, after I jerry-rigged the camera lens module just before the con started (lens module fell OFF just prior to entering the building, had to Macguiver it on the spot.
