  1. I am new to trooping, but have been an organizer of a few charity events, which lead me into the whole "If you can't beat em...Join em" world. Last year during one of my events I held a Star Wars day complete with Star Wars prop Museum, R2 D2 running around meeting the fans, and a whole cast of characters. The group took advantage of their surroundings and without my knowledge, filmed this short Fan Film which I would love to share the link to for your enjoyment. When I found out Darth Vader was coming, I wanted to get a unique picture which I will share as well. This lead to my idea of starting a thread for everyone to share their unique memories with everyone. Unique photo's videos or stories that made a certain troop memorable. We know when we are trooping, we get to make a lot of people's day by posing for pictures, etc. but we don't always get to share what made our days in costume. I would love to share with everyone a link to the following fan filmed shot at my restaurant, while I was camping out on the roof for a week in Winnipeg, MB. www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBsbwOV-zIY
  2. I put it up in a ponytail and then use a headrag.
  3. I did mean snaps. Don't know why I used the word rivets. Thanks for the advice.
  4. I just posted in new member introductions, sorry I jumped the gun. <br><br> Yeah it's an FX kit that I had bought years ago and wanted to initially put it on a mannequin in my den. I have put it together and have done quite a few charity events here in Winnipeg. Just annoying that the velcro would keep coming apart.<br><br> I do appreciate the advice. Im not too worried about being Uber screen accurate. Thanks for the advice everyone.
  5. I finally put together an FX kit that I've had for 12+ years. Wanted to say hello.
  6. Hi everyone! I am new to the trooping thing, and finally put my kit together after 12 years of sitting on it. Since day one, I have had a hard time getting Velcro to stick to the Armor. The only thing that seems to stick is the residue left over from the pieces when they are removed. Yes it was industrial strength Velcro. I have researched techniques for removing the residue, but nothing seems to work. I am going to modify armor with rivets and thinking of using ABS glue for certain pieces. Would anyone know if I could just use the glue on top of the residue? Or does anyone have any secret techniques to removing the old residue that the velcro has left behind?
