Homemade Costumes, Aspiring Stormtroopers

Recommended Posts

I think with mine craft becoming so popular a lot of the box outfits are going to find thier place at cons. My two youngest girls are really into it. Probably going to have to start judging the boxes on how well they recreate the mine craft pixilation. ;-)

A friend of mine is visiting Seattle, and she found this horribly disfigured TK by the Space Needle.  And I believe Vader is wearing.... a backpack?

well , at one point i wanted to get the ruby's armor. yeah the picture looked soo cool. Then I red the reviews and realized that it was terrible. my fiber glass with efx helmet looked 10 times better than that. I have moved on from that but I wonder if many people have that same thought of getting that because of the picture

Not one of ours.  Probably some random person.  Let me guess - taken around either ECCC, AkiCon, etc.?

Oh no, I know this isn't one of ours.  I believe they were in the square area around the Space Needle.  This was yesterday, 8/6.  You know, for tourists to take their pictures with Darth Vader and the poor crippled Stormtrooper.

Oh no, that sounds like something out of a horror film.

I do not think that there is even a person underneath Vaders outfit...

It looks like a dummy.

Where are the arms? The legs are super short compared to it's torso (yes...'it' is an 'it)

So this is the 'Darth Dummy and the Storm Stupid' act...

Those lids!  They remind me of that scene in Casino where Joe Pesci is crushing that guys' head in a vice.  I expect one of their lenses to pop out at any moment.

I’m tempted to put the costume I had a couple years ago, but Frank and Wook would never let me hear the end of it. Let me just paint a picture for you all..... it’s a FOTK onesie (like that crappy pajama material off the rack), with a God-knows-what abomination helmet (can’t tell if the helmet is supposed to be ANH or ESB....). Got big foam-like leg pads and the bottom went over black Doc Martin boots. Meanwhile, everyone thought it was great! Shows how little people know before getting into the 501st.

Well it’s not a trooper but if it makes you feel better Matt. This was my Halloween costume last year. Yes I bought fuzzy fabric and glued it to boots and yes you can’t see it but I sewed a bag which is hanging on my right side. It was full of beer bottles so I wouldn’t get thirsty. Pretty much it was done as a joke but the onsie was super warm and Halloween in Pa was cold last year so I got the last laugh.
