    I am curious as to what folks do to keep themselves cool while at events when keeping the armor on is a full time thing.

    First and formost would be to stay hydrated. Maybe fans in the helmet and under armor type clothes under the costume. Even if you do all that, it's still going to be hot, one would just have to try to figure ways to minimize how hot they get by taking breaks.

    Boba helmets have a lot more airflow underneath than say Stormtrooper helmets. I've been trooping my Boba for almost 14 years and haven't put a CPU fan in there yet. With other helmets, yes, you need it. Like Jc27 said.....stay hydrated before your event, and on breaks drink more water, and then when done trooping, drink even more. You just have to know going in you're going to get hot and sweaty regardless. That's just a normal part of costuming. LOL
