Although I listed it as complete, this costume requires constant upkeep. It seems like there's always elastic or velcro that needs to be replaced.
Here are the answers to common questions I receive about this costume:
1. Where did you get your armor?
A: I joined the Galactic Empire. It's standard issue for all stormtrooper recruits.
2. No seriously, where did you get it?
A: A fellow trooper made it for me. If you want your own armor, this is the place to start researching it: http://www.whitearmor.net/
3. How much did it cost?
A: The Empire doesn't release that information to civilians. Basically it was my high school graduation present to myself.
4. Can I borrow it?
5. Pretty please?
6. Is it really hot inside of it?
A: Yes. Let's just say that it develops its own little weather system after the first ten minutes.
7. Is it heavy?
A: No, it's actually surprisingly light. The shoes are probably the heaviest part of the whole costume.
8. Do you have a blaster to go with it?
A: Naturally. It's just a toy that you can buy off the shelf, but I've got a modded one that's more accurate that I plan to replace it with.
9. Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
A: Aren't you a little predictable for a comedian?
