    Right i've been doing a lot of thinking about my future Mando armour lately and i need to clear a few things up.
    1. Is it difficult to go to the toilet in full armour? (i.e. requires to take off codpiece, jumpsuit, etc.)
    2. Is it difficult to see through the tinted visor at night? (or in dark areas.)
    Edited out...
    5. Is it difficult to hear/talk while wearing a helmet? (and would others find it hard to understand you if you talk to them.)

    I had some others, which i cant remember at the moment, but if i do remember them i'll ask them at another time.
    If anyone has answers to these questions i would be greatful to receive them.

    Cheers

    1. I can pee in my Fett, as once my cod piece is off, I have a 2nd zipper that I can move up to allow myself that option. But a #2 is a no go but as it would seem, it's better to go beforehand.
    2. It can be, I find I can make my way around alright, but seeing differences and details isn't going to happen.
    3. Discussing working weapons is against the COC here, and besides a flamethrower on your gear is plain stupid, anyone who says otherwise is a moron. It's just going to lead to property/personal damage , possibly death and will end up resulting in you being penniless and in jail. Regard all ideas as imbecilic and act accordingly. If nothing else costume parts + fire never mix.
    4. Again probably a poor idea. Even if you got it where it wouldn't crush a fans's hand let alone your hand, (and then it wouldn't be a crushgaunt) it'd end up being heavy and unwieldy and you'd ditch it at first chance. Just cause these things are in the books don't mean they're good ideas for an actual costume.
    5. I can hear/talk fine while wearing my helmet. As an option I also have a headset/mic setup that amplifies my voice so others can hear me even better.

    1. Depends on a few factors: can you put on/take off your cod piece with the rest of you armour on? Does your flight suit have a fly or equivalent? Can you manage all this & doing your business with gaunts on? It could be achievable with taking off your gaunts and cod piece. Sitting on a toilet won't work with a jetpack on.
    4. Probably falls into the category of a functional weapon and therefore not allowed on here.
    5. It depends on the environment but hearing is generally fine. If you want to talk to someone you will probably need to get fairly close to them.
