Man, looks like a great party! My friend lives in LA, I'll have to get him to go and get me an Evac figure.

I really want to know more about those Optimus and Bumblebee suits- like, are the arms/hands mechanical or are the actor's arms inside there, with perhaps slaved hands controlled by his own? The way he's holding that woman's face, it looks very natural, I'd say it must be a real person's hand controlling the suit's hand. not like inside a glove, but with cables attached to his hand and to the suit hand.

and how awesome that both cullen and welker were there, cool.

I want to say these are the same costumes they used in the Singapore Ride opening:

In which case the hands are static and the costumers' hands are probably in the bot's elbows, like I did with movie Brawl, but incorrectly (not enough of the weight was on my shoulders, so my arms got tired quick). They'll also be on stilts. :)
I take commissions!
