Lailaith Posted June 16, 2016 Report Share Posted June 16, 2016 So I finally got my kit for TFA stormtrooper. I have never built any sort of costume so I have been doing a lot of research on this site while anxiously awaiting for this to arrive. I understood that I would need to modify the armor on arrival as I am 5'5" and on the skinny side. Now that I see it in front of me, it seems that I will have to do much more modification than anticipated. As it is there are not too many guides for First Order armor construction. Just looking for a recommendation for where to start. So far I have my kit spread out and labeled everything that I could identify. There are still a good number of smaller pieces that I have not identified yet. The kit is from KB Props (full armor, helmet, and shield) and came pre-trimmed. I also have boots and gloves from imperial boots. I have not yet ordered any of the gaskets or under clothing. Should I wait to purchase the gaskets prior to trimming the armor or should I attempt to adjust the size of the armor first? If I jump into cutting the armor down to size is it easier/better to start with the torso or limbs? Any advice is much appreciated. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
