I am not sure anyone actually "commercially manufactures" a "shark
suit"???... Probably because they are too afraid of a "law suit"
;-)) Them big white sharks look like they would chew it right up :o)))
I guess they are made by private folks that like that sort of metal
bending stuff. But there is a problem...
Chainmail is made from a ton of little metal rings. They are not
hard connected together. So if a tiny spark jumps between each ring
and your skin is next to it, you "will" feel it!!! I note Criss said
he could feel it tingling him... The trick is to also weave/weld
bare stranded wire into the suit too so there is a solid electrical
grid in place. No "normal" "shark suit" will work well... Maybe he
should have gotten a $100,000 suit ;-)))
KVA Effects is said to have this figured all out, but I don't know
any of their secret details beyond guessing... But they do seem to
have it figured out ;-)
Of course, I guess one could argue that suits are for sissies :o)))
> Maybe KVA can
> kill him??
But that would make harm to the reputation of a TC
device in general...
:o)) It is like the XP convention coil trying to kill Bill Gates
:o))) Would they hate us, or "thank" us :o)))))
I realized that.
Have you met her in person and is that her coil she
uses for the performance ?
I have never meet Danielle Stampe. But she is a long time stage
performer whose safety certification background goes far beyond the
normal!! She says she is a "trained professional" and she "really"
is!! She shows up in a lot of strange places and she does know what
she is doing... I think Brent Turner made her coil(s).
> And she also
> knew that it hurts (a little ;-)), but just "get
> over it"...
Tell that Rob Krampf. A TC power arc hurts a whole
lot under the right/wrong circumstances.Once ,he was
almost kicked off of his TC platform,and lived to tell
about it.His coil is less than 1000 VA powered.
Danielle's coil seems more powerful.
He says it is really loud!! His school demonstrations are a bit
lower powered. But I think he is going on "30 years" now!!! No suit there =:O
Rob says it has not hurt his brain after 30 years... Dean Ortner is
still alive too:
But I note Dean has turned down the power these days....
Of course, the "human fireball game" impresses us all!! But just
like Evil Kenevil breaking is back for the Xth time, these people are
playing with death every day... Just because anyone can go but a
motorcycle that can jump at 200MPH over cars, does not mean that we
all do it!! Sometimes people do!! And sometimes they die...
As suits go. HV places like GE use them all the time for power line
work and worker safety during testing... But it is "proprietary"...

Did anyone catch the $6K "shark suit" cost of $30K. As part of
being a stagehand you have to deal with annoying people. I hope he
and his writers get nailed by that lightning bolt.
Dr. R, I have a question.
Would wearing a wetsuit under the sharksuit better isolate the
person in the suit, reducing the amount of current flowing thru the
persons body? The only downside I could think of is, the possibile
DC charging of the person in the suit, leading to some strong
static shocks to the person.

It was bad. They didn't tell anyone about a "script" --- only
that he wanted to walk under a large coil. I was in Tucson VA
Hosp. in a coma when they shot it.
Had I known about the faked damage I would not have rented it to them.
