Circuits and clothing at conventions: anything to look out for? Answered
I've been working on a pair of working Daft Punk helmets for some time now. I am working on the electronics for it now, and I'm designing a systems to let me wear the helmets drivers and batteries without having to have a backpack that would cover up the hard work I did on a jacket (shameless plug is shameless).
Anyway, I've settled on a custom vest with pockets to store all the needed bits and bobs. However, if I wear just the vest (from the plans I have so far) I get the feeling someone might think it's some sort of bomb. While I have no intention of removing my jacket (as to try and keep the inner working under wraps) I am concerned that if I do remove the jackets, someone might get startled at a convention. As I have never personally been to a convention, and I plan to start going on them much more, I was curious if anyone has dealings with stuff of this nature. And, if they do, if there is anything I can do to ensure nothing as bad as someone yelling "bomb" at me (maybe get it checked as a weapon?). Either way, this is something I need to consider before I actually start making the control vest, so if I need to modify the design, I can.
Also: I do know that most conventions have certain guidelines to them. Again, I have yet to go to any, and plan to go to them more often. Due to this, I want to know what the most strict set of rules would be, and follow those. Although, the strictest I have seen is peace-bonding weapons, nothing regarding clothing.
Thanks in advance!
