I had an idea for a pulp hero for a costume contest -- Same helmet in black, aviator goggles and scarf, flight jacket etc., all in browns and tans. It worked for a 50GP prize. I made a few other more modern costumes. The modern ones have the face mask & neck brace. ALL have the ring bracers -- the source of his powers mostly . I've a background that ties it all together -- essentially a modern student and part time engineer finds out that his great-great grandfather almost begame a hero in his own right. Unfortunately at that time minaturization and control of a bladeless air moving flight suit just wasn't possible. But adapting the idea with modern gear was childs play. He was able to rescue a lost child EASILY with the modified vintage suit and got the hero bug.
While playing it, I got involved with a group called Loose Cannons... which kind of fits the character to a point. Chessman also has joined the group... Quantlon and Arc are also possibilities for the group , seeing as they haven't gotten involved with a group as yet.
I didn't go to DragonCon this year. My bad knee just wouldn't take the 5+ hotel spread. Especially not with the fringes of the hurricaine blowing through this weekend. I have seen a few videos from it so far... and it looks like there was fun... A lot of Fallout 4 specific cosplay in the parade I noticed -- Dance, some vault dwellers with the Cannonade and Junk jet weapons.
That being said, the holiday weekend was a double XP weekend for Champions Online's Seventh Anniversary. Which means free stuff as well, including more free WASP SE vehicles. By now all my remaining toons have 1 or more of them. I think Chessman has 3 vehicles now. Taking advantage I got ALL my characters to 20 or higher. Atomwave & Turbojet to 22.
