Ah, there we go. In the proper placement, it appears to fit very good.. and I wager it feels like slinging your arms above a fence.

Okay, the process here was:
-get photograph of self in a weird stance(self-timer, tripod)
-import to photoshop, trace silhouette
-move silhouette about armor, scale to in shape.
-adjust transparencies to show every thing

*Oh, and interestingly plenty of, my hand goes appropriate to in which Tychus’ are in the cinematic – halfway down the forearm into the hand controls.

Query by Ryan: Would wearing a fit of armor make you more suceptable to electric power?
I have asked a related query before, but I said “lightning” which looks to have been a blunder. Lets say you touch a fairly gentle electric latest while sporting a suit of armor. Would the metal armor cause the electrical power to hurt you much more or would it carry out some of the electrical power away from you? Basically I’m composing a guide and I’m wondering if some magic electricity would be more or less effective versus a heavily armored opponent.

It is dependent, electricity likes to discover the most efficient way to the floor.

If the armor touched the floor, and your skin by some means was not touching the armor, the electricity would avoid you completely.
Nonetheless, if the armor was not touching the floor, your body under its lowest point would bear the total pressure of the shock.
If the armor went all the way to the ground but was touching your skin, it would most probably get the brunt of the shock, but you would still come to feel it.
What ever the case, it will not likely intensify the electrical shock. Wish that aids.
