We died while wearing them---so hot in that weather. It's a different type of hot from where I'm from.
With the "disguised" Nyreen my hood never really seemed to work right when I had it up and even more so when I had it down. Kind of a downer when I wore it. Don't know if I'll wear her again or if I'll just opt to make her armor instead.
The ever so wonderful looking space boyfriend Garrus is We both made our cosplays, he made our guns, and I painted our masks.
