    Re: My Guy Manuel Helmet & Gloves Build

    Update! So after last year when I wore my helmet for Halloween and other events, I discovered the helmet had some fogging issues. Therefore for this year, I resorted to installing four 30mm fans for electronics I bought from Amazon. I wired them up to two 9V batteries, and I added a small toggle switch too for convenience. I was able to get everything to fit within the helmet itself which is amazing and the fans work great! They blow air up into the helmet's visor to prevent fogging as well as cool down the helmet in general. I'm thinking it will work great. Check it out!

    It kinda sounds like a jet engine taking off when they first start but then it is just a low humming that isn't too bad, barely noticeable outside the helmet. But they do suck the life out of the batteries pretty quick! I'm sure you'd get adequate cooling power with 2 fans and it would last much longer.

    Re: My Guy Manuel Helmet & Gloves Build

    Today I was able to dawn my helmet at a socially acceptable place for the first time, FanX in Salt Lake City! (Or in other words, Salt Lake's version of ComicCon since it is a copyright thing to use the term ComicCon.) It was pretty fun! Got lots of smiles and attention from folks, with one guy even saying it was the best Daft Punk cosplay he had ever seen.

    Now I'm not one who ever saw themselves going to a "ComicCon" and I hate the term cosplay. But I just figured this event gave me one extra day of the year besides Halloween that I could logically wear the helmet and gloves and not have people say "you can't wear that here" and actually have people appreciate/enjoy it. So that was my motivation for attending.

    Lots of folks wanted to grab pictures with me, but I think I might have been blinking in all of them...

    It was a cool time. Enjoy some of the pictures I grabbed.
