Amazing tutorial! I didn't read it all because it's past midnight and I have class in the morning, but my favorite bit so far is: "running or jumping in a mecha costume does not make you a hero"

in my experience, these kinds of costumes will usually (I want to say always but there could be exceptions) require two to suit up. Even my simplified Iron Man suit required a second person to put it on me. It's like medieval armor. Knights needed squires to help them put on armor because you simply can't bend or reach certain places once pieces are on. You want to move pretty carefully, too, which makes it even harder to dress yourself in something so complicated.
