  1. Hey Christine, I can’t thank you enough for posting this. I received a full commission ANH TK from RS about 2 1/2 months ago. It will require quite a bit of tweaking and trimming to get it just right. I’m a little short for a stormtrooper as well, about your height at 5’4” so this post and all the other input from the great folks here is much appreciated as I begin the alterations. Wish me luck...I am one with the Force, The Force is with me...
  2. Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. And Happy Life Day to all!
  3. Hello, all. My name is Eddie, I’m a healthcare worker in Chicago. I’ve been a SW fan since ‘77, and remember drawing TKs for my friends in elementary school. Could never get that TK frown just right. Last Thursday, a big rectangular box and a much smaller cube-shaped box was delivered to my apartment with contents described as “Fancy Dress Costume.” This is my second full commission TK, my first from RS Propmasters, who have created an INCREDIBLE work of art, a vast improvement from my previous TK armor, a “full commission” store-bought Ben Cooper TK Halloween costume back in 1979. During the past few months, I’ve been browsing the forums for general costuming ideas and information on the 501st and what they do. I was impressed by the organization’s camaraderie and support, but mostly by their purpose of “bad guys doing good,” and it’s something that I would love to be a part of. I have some past experience with creating period clothing for Renaissance Faires, and I am aware of the impact a costume can have on the wearer as well as the individuals he/she encounters. No matter how young or old you are, there’s a certain magic in meeting a character from a different place or time, or in this case, a different galaxy far, far away. It encourages people to dream, escape the mundane and doldrums of everyday life, or simply puts a smile on someone’s face. I am looking forward to hearing your stories, sharing advice and experiences, and eventually joining you all in putting a smile on someone’s face, because we all know that the world could use a few more smiles right now!
