Now if they made real sized Gundams or some other battle mech I'd be happy. Heck, I'd sign up to be a test pilot for one of those. Yeah it might blow up in my face, there's a risk of loss of life, but... *Ignores the fact she has a fear of heights, can't fly a plane and grinds gears* I'd so be in line.As for caped costumes... Think they make that stuff in purple, sans cape. *Grins* I want a Ninja outfit like Psylocke's. This Elfie would be stylin'!

Okay, I'm-a buy one. I want you all to line up with baseball bats, concrete, barbed wire - heck you can be imaginative and mix and match - then we can see if it works~

Well if it is too heavy for a full costume and too costly. Just make some underwear. Got to protect the important stuff. Besides they say nothing about how hot the stuff is to wear? If the stuff is like rubber I bet it is real hot and not fun to have on. I also think that the stuff may protect you from a bat but it would not protect you from the force. In other words it would keep the damage down but you would be knocked backwards. In the movies I all ways see some guy being shoot and then you find out they had a bullet proof vest on. If I was a bad guy and knew this I would just shoo... [More]
