A short video that my wife n I threw together to show how I put on Stormtrooper armor. For those who cant see the vid, get along to youtube.com/watch?v=TA2zd7aBPlA to watch it.
Just a quick note to say that any video you embed in member news is by default high quality. Lemme know if you have probs watching them.
The seller asked me what my height was, chest size and a whole load of measurements that made me think that we was making armor just for me - where in fact its just one standard size.
If only I knew about Shepperton Design Studios at the time - they are the maker of the original armor used in the Star Wars movies.
Modded the armor so that I could actually wear it without the edges cutting into my flesh and leaving me in hospital after each trooping session. I had to strike a balance of mobility and aesthetics - cut too much and then too much of the black tights show through - cut too less and you can hardly move without feeling something cutting into you ^^;
The shoulder parts were stuck on using the velcro - about as useful as a slap to the face with a wet dogs wet bollocks.
Decided to make holes and secure with rivets - painted white after. Don't look good close up but cant really notice from far away - the most practical way I could think of to secure them so that they don't fall off while "dancing."
I notice quite a few readers with Stormtrooper armor - bits of your armor fall off before to leave you in embarrassing situation?
