Greetings from Ottawa, Canada

Recommended Posts

I've just recently begun the journey of making my own Stormtrooper costume.

 

I joined up the forum for the 501st Garrison here in Ottawa, Canada. They've been incredibly helpful and directed me to this site as well for getting even more information for putting together my first TK armor.

 

Looking forward to officially join the 501st when it's finished :)

Thanks for the warm welcomes.

 

I'm going to get my feet wet by starting with putting together a blaster. Ordered the conversion kit for the Hasbro Blaster... And now looking for the gun :)

what kind of trooper are you going for kevin? and what armor are you ordering? Just interested :D

Still in the research stage... I've been reading up on all the options and trying to figure where my fist step... In the meantime I ordered the Doopydoo conversion kit for the Hasbro gun thinking I'd start with that... But can't find the toy anywhere. And I've ordered some TK boots :)

Kevin, if you click on my signature photo below it'll take you to the Tantive IV Boarding Party Facebook page. There are a few Ottawa troopers there that can help you in person for your build.

As of this morning I've sent a request to be on a waiting list for TK armor :)

 

Decided to go with the ATA armor. Liked what I read about it in the forums here (LOVE the Tutorials ) and the feedback from members from my local Garrison were very helpful! Thanks again! The price fit my budget as well which is always a bonus.

 

The wait is longer than I would have liked... but this will give me time to continue reading, slowly pick up the other items I need and allows me to be available to help my local Garrison out in any way they can use me at different events over the next few months. If they just need me to carry all the bags and gear feel free to pile it on. I have a pretty strong back :)

 

I hope to have the TK armor all done by Easter! Very pumped and excited.... just going to have to exercise a little more patience I guess :)

On the waiting list for TKBoots.

Ordered the iComm and Aker system.

Got chemical rubber gloves.

 

Now I'm reading about snaps and straps for putting the armor all together :)

 

January can't get here soon enough!
