Yeah i was just thinking, if you want a clink clank sound, attach a metal plate to the bottom of your boots. When I think of that I think of Kyle Katarn in the olders games running on the metal Bridges. lol... Awsomeness

I think I figured out what I'm going to do. This is both one of the simplest methods, but will also sound the best, I think.

I'm going to see how it all works out, but I'll plan on sewing some small pouches in the bottom of each leg of my pants, then get some blank keys from a hardware store and put them in the pouches. When I walk, they should rattle around each other, and not really be that noticeable to the average person.

Clever....but I think spare change would work better than blank keys.

Possibly. Although, it does bring up the possibility of having something to lose if I get mugged. :D

I wonder what would give a brighter sound, but also a fuller sound too... though. I was thinking of keys because of the way they sound in loose pockets. That sound is fairly close to what I'd be looking for. I wonder if loose change would sound.... like loose change. I'd fear the sound to be too bright and crisp, versus the clunk kind of sound that the keys have cause they are thicker and wider... I think testing is in order...

I dunno, I always sound awesome when I walk with change in my pockets. :D

I always sound broke because it's normally all the money I have clanking. LMAO

Hmm. Thanks for trying it though. Here's what I'm envisioning...

I almost think it would work better if it weren't sewn onto the outside of the pantleg, but rather put into one of those large "boba-style" pockets on the belt that have the ability to flap around.

In a busy area, are you sure people will be able to hear it?

What about some small copper pipe? Same key idea, have it suspended in a pocket, but pipe? Kind of like a wind chime in your pocket. Maybe 3 small diameter pipes, nothing too obtrusive. Let it hang and dangle.

Doesn't really matter. Sure, at a bigger con, etc, it will most likely not be consciously heard. Some people may pick up on it, but its of little important really. It's an ambiance and it won't be that much work to do it all, so... for those that will see me in a hallway, or on the street for a "walk" or the like... It's part of the atmosphere that the suit will carry, even if it isn't flash and "in your face"

Good idea dude, the keys FTW, BUT, maybe put them on an elastic string, so they bounce and jingle(?) I dont know, I think youve got a pretty solid idea.. I would maybe even suggest metallic marbles, but idk... Good luck with whatever you do man! :D
