Very cool... Looks like Tom rather enjoyed it!
If that doesn't describe just how fantastic your costume is, I don't know what does.His exact words were that we was very flattered. Then I tired to shake his hand for my pic, and he just grabbed his arm around me and held me for a few moments while everyone took pics.
Then as I took my helmet off, and he saw it was in 2 parts, he commented on how it was "just like his". :thumbsup
