    Hi,

    just a quick question, what have you guys build into your costumes to help keep yourselves cool? unfortunately I have a skin condition that pretty much means if I get hot, I come up in hives, so I am just planning to take a lot of antihistamines to help fight the problem, but I was wondering what you guys have done to keep yourselves cool?

    Cheers.

    Yep. Fett 4 Real is right, also I saw some people take ice packs and such and put them in the pouches and what not in the suit. Take some breaks. Safety first!

    Actually you can install fans in your helmet. I don't want to speak for him, but I think that is what F4R meant. You can turn up some info on installing these with a search.

    I was thinking you meant there were some pants you could wear to keep your crotch down... I wasn't a fan of haaving fans by my crotch

    Well I've never used these but I did a search and found this.

    Great prices on Kool Max body cooling devices!

    It might work under your armor. If it doesn't bulk you up to much. If it does then you can claim you are POTF Boba!
