So I just fitted my new tri-lasers from Casey AKA biohunter76 into my bio. Now I've been wondering, with the bio on the mask should you be able to see the laser when it's on your head? If so where exactly should it be pointing? I'm thinking it might be cool to have it so when it's on, it's pointing dead center in-front of you...technically that's how it should be o_O I haven't gone ahead and glued in the laser housing to the shroud yet. I want to get some opinions on this before I go ahead and do so.

Thanks

I'd say slightly off to whichever side you're mountig your plasma caster, as the weapon itself is off-center. If it were too centered it would quickly move to an angle the caster can't hit without the predator changing his bodies orientation, but centered is probly better for a costume so you can easily keep it out of spectator's eyes!

In theory, this wouldn't matter, the laser would just have to be calibrated accordingly, computer code, or the laser has some crazy alien technology that picks up the laser dots in real time. Now, also remember, straight ahead line of site and where the laser hits, will create a triangle, so, if you are going for straight ahead, in terms of your eyesight, you'll have to decide if that's 10', 20', 30' in front of you. Make sense? Not to mention, I've taken a LONG look at the laser pics, and from the standpoint of the movie, it changes. It even changes drastically from the movie to Wang's marquette. I say just get them as straight as possible. I mean really, if you're out on the town, is anyone going to be pulling out a protractor? o_O

Yeah that's true. Technically speaking you could have them pointing anywhere, provided the computer knew to take the angle into account, which it almost certainly would.
