Oh yeah... I've seen guys from the 501st before. They do an excellent job. But ohhh man. It's going to be really hard to mess up everything in this costume, especially after I've worked so hard on it. I've made the armour out of EVA foam, so it's pretty durable. I will try out some of the techniques you've suggested. Thank you so much.
