Re: Western Michigan Armor Party (grand rapids)

The first thing you'll wanna do is shorten all of your straps. In the photos you've shared it appears you'll want to shorten your shoulder straps. Then after you do that shorten the shoulder straps and see how it fits.

Re: Help finding a Rent-A-Vader costume

He should fit into it no problem. The boots are some cheap costume boots I got off of Ebay. They came in size M which is 10-11. He might be able to squeeze into them or he can come by and try them on some time. He can use any black boot with no laces and it will be good enough if these don't fit. It...

What size is your friend? Approx height weight and shoe size? I might know someone that would rent one for free ;)

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

Mike, thanks so much for all your efforts to get this set up and for being the master of ceremonies and facilitator for the panel. The kids all loved seeing R2. Kevin, Todd and Kevin, thanks for bringing out your Droids and taking part in the discussion. The kids learned a lot from seeing and heari...

Re: A little skinny to be a stormtrooper

You just need some padding (foam) and adjustments. Your belt needs snaps or velcro to stay up where it belongs. Where do you live? If you attended one armor party you could finish it with some help.

As far as your glasses go...Just plan on not seeing when in armor :lol:

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

OK I'll assume this is 100% happening then? Just so I can let them know. Also I'll need the name of the robotics club so they can put it on the panel schedule with the R2 builders.

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

Updated answers on my previous post. If the droid panel happens it will be at 12. There should be enough room for your display in the panel room if it's the same size. Just be ready to scale it down just in case.

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

The coach was wondering tonight if the kids might be able to bring their competition field for their portion of the show and tell? I would guess its about 12x12 feet and about a foot tall. If it's the same size as last year then there should be room. But I will ask. Answer: there should be enough r...

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

The Con promoter said we could have the time scheduled in the panel room to talk to the kids. If you decide to do this we will just make it a panel for droids and robots. The kids can bring their robots to show off and answer questions as well. They don't have to speak or anything. The coach would h...

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

I could ask the organizer if there's is a time slot where we can use the panel room for an hour. I have a feeling it wouldn't be a problem. If it's the same as last year there's plenty of room for us to show them droids and for them to show off their work and they might even have a small audience in...

Re: Special request of a droid builder (or two?)

There will be a few of us builders at Great Lakes Comic Con. So far we'll have complete R2 and a Mouse droid in progress. My R2 is very basic, not much different than a remote control car. So, there's not a lot of programming involved, if that's what you're looking for. I've presented at a robotics ...

Re: Birthday parties?

Most of the the birthday parties I've attended end up being more for the parents. Often the kids didn't even care I was there and the parents had to force them to take photos with us. So I'm very selective on which ones I attend.
