Federation Trooping at the London Film & Comic Con
Well, that was great fun, doing the London Film & Comic Con. Thoughts on being a Trooper:
1. Vision was much better than i thought it would be - quite a wide angle of vision, and i could even see down by peering through the tea strainer.
2. Its better to stand still. When i trooped as a Sandtrooper and Garindan, keeping moving was the key, as any draft of air through the costume while doing so helped. Not here. The suit is polyester, with elasticated wrists and ankles, so the air doesn't go through and the heat you build up by walking can't go anywhere, so you're sweating like mad and, because the suit is baggy, the sweat drips from all sorts of places, and you're VERY aware of it.
3. Derri Boots are lovely and comfortable to wear.
4. The strap on the rifle is flaming annoying, dangling away and getting in the way.
5. Audience reaction. I didn't get an awful lot, as the average age of the attendees was about 20, with a heavy bias on anime and comics. But when i DID get recognised it was great - genuine, heartfelt reactions, they were happy bunnies, usually starting the conversation with "Blakes 7! I used to LOVE that" and then going on to say who their favourite characters were.
6. Explaining who i was met with mixed reactions. Best one, the American comic book artist Frank Cho, who roared with laughter when i pointed out the tea strainer.
So, a great troop, my only regret is that i don't have many photos - the suit doesn't have pockets so i couldn't have my phone so to ask folk if they'd take pics

I can't say I'm surprised by the other fans reactions, but if you ask me, that is one smashing photo! Thanks for posting this.
