    I think i remember that part of that podcast. I think Will and Norm were discussing it and they randomly realized they had the same monitor. I think they also mentioned it had a white bezel but I’m not to sure.

  2. I just love how in the one promo shot many sites are using, Norm is in the background. That seems like the easier way to find Adam, look for Norm and Joey nearby!

    That’s great, Adam was wrecked after being out on the floor for an hour. True dedication. Dunno about how feasible it is, but if he ever gets that Iron Man armor working, maybe install some fans or something.

  3. That armor is so cool. Thought considering the quality I would suspect it cost quite a few pretty pennies from Adams piggy bank to afford it.

  4. It’s just awesome how well Adam is fitting in to Tested, it’s what I had hoped when I first heard of the announcement and while it took some time to get going the content that’s being pumped out is awesome.

  5. I really dig how involved Adam is being with the site now. Now we just need some Jamie on here.

    Also, yeah, that costume looked sweaty as balls. It looked awesome, but sweaty as balls.

  6. Ah, the old Samuel L Jackson method of going to Comic-Con, except for the guessing game aspect. Jackson doesn’t want people to figure out it’s him in disguise.

  7. Adam, I’ve gotten a bunch of suggestions from reenactors and LARPers on this kind of thing, and linen undershirts are apparently the way to go.

    Also, since your head is more sensitive to heat changes, covering that means you feel the heat a lot more than say your chest (It’s something I’ve noticed a lot when wearing ear and eye protection around the shop). And when you cover your entire body what you do lose just circulates to the point that you basically cook yourself at 90-97 degrees.

  8. That is so cool…

    And still so hot!!

    We were hot in our Kyoshi Warrior cosplays at the last con, and halfway throught the day we decided that people in full-body cosplays or fursuits must be even hotter, so we took out our fans and started fanning every hot-looking cosplay we saw.

    I have to say that the armour looks incredible! This Scott Maple person is a master to be able to make this!
