TK armor notes and questions

Post by Darth Katz » Sun Oct 07, 2012 12:34 pm

Just trying to get the word out. If anybody has connections to anyone selling TK armor (female-5"7), (and yes I am posting on the White Armor site) can they please let me know. I dont know which version is the easiest (easiest for someone who just owns a hammer and wrenches) to do, so any comments about that would be great also. Or any other help would be great also!
Thanks! :thumbs:

Most Stormtrooper builds are the same. So, no matter which "version" you choose, it's roughly the same build.

Here's what I told you earlier in a PM

You will want to go with the movie sized armor (ATA, AP, etc..) instead of the larger armor(RT, AM, etc..). You will not need any special equipment to build it. Most of the work can be done with a blade(exacto), sandpaper and some glue. However, a Dremel is a great investment and can speed up the build.
If the thought of a Stormtrooper build is too intimidating(and you're itching to get trooping quicker), why not try a "softer" costume with less armor to work with?

As I stated in the same PM I mentioned above

If you would like to discuss some of the other alternatives, send me a PM with your phone number and a good time to call. I can go over the different options with you and give you a point in the right direction. :thumbs:
