    keeping cool in costume

    I think unless you’re lucky you will be hot so it’s more about making it as manageable as possible, and as already said, it’s recognising how much you can do in the costume before you have to have a break. I’ve got two fans pointing towards my face and thankfully my Tusken helmet is not completely enclosed with the eyes and mouth concealed with material that can let air in a little which helps a bit. The fans don’t cool me really just makes a bit more comfortable. I’ve found the more I move the quicker I get hot but if I punctuate walking about with periods of standing for photos or moving less I can stop out for longer before I need a break.

    keeping cool in costume

    In my jawa my mask has foam to push it away from my head and I place small fans that point down. For my under suit I use under armor moisture wicking top and bottom. During the summer I use black cooling rags around my neck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    keeping cool in costume

    Trooping in my Gamorrean, I use 4 fans in the helmet alone. I have used up to six just in the helmet. I have an around the neck fan that I also can and have used. I use "under armour heat gear" long sleeves and leggings that wicks away sweat. I have considered cooling vests but still wondering how to to pad them to replace my chest padding and they also are known to sweat and show water so it may bleed on my leather jerkin. In my jawa, it's a blessing I wear the same long sleeve under armour and have worn shorts with black leggings. The airflow is amazing and the cosplay T pose allows a cool breeze to circulate easily. I use a hydro pack / camel back that normally one of my kids wear in a goruck backpack. That also carries swag and trading cards that they can pass out. The hydro has a long mouth tube that can fit under my mask and I can drink even with removing my mask if need be. Learn your limits and recognize your body telling you to hydrate and take breaks. Also talk to your handlers ahead of time to have timers set to remind you both when it's time to take a break as sometimes we forget because we're having such a good time.

    Hey all! I was wondering about ways to keep a little bit cool while out trooping since the costumes are so hot! Anyone use cooling arm sleeves and do they work? Fans? Good sweat wicking options?

    heh its the seam on top and seam pulled up/ out my brain hates. what is the proper fabric anyway. the recognition factor may be lack of r1 fans in any given place, and height. they were tall. like crazy purple navigator tall.

    Patterns? We don't need no stinking patterns! Mostly it's simple T-tunic stuff like you'd use for a medieval costume.

    So if I was too stupid to remember when entering mine and Barbara's troops into the database to NOT put my DZ in front of the number, can you fix that?  I entered several with DZ21128 and DZ21124 for Barbara as well.  Sorry.

    Not going after approvals. The fabric is definitely not leather according to the actor that wore it. I saw the correct fabric at Joann's after I made this. It was $20.99 per yard. You will need about 20 yards of fabric if you are my size. The fabric over my face is a different color because I needed to SEE. Yes, I ironed it before I put it on. Matthew said the edges were all unfinished so that's why mine are.
