Requesting assistance in resizing sandtrooper armor. (Grand Rapids)

Postby vandingo » Sun Aug 26, 2018 9:43 am

Hello, I just bought a sandtrooper suit off of a former member. But he was 6ft, and I'm only 5ft5in, so it needs some major sizing down. He told me to ask on here for someone to assist with that. I'm living in an apartment, so working on it is limited. I'm willing to drive wherever I need, or pay someone for their time, if truly needed, whether it be drinks or cash. I do not want to screw it up, and want to wear it as soon as possible.

The first thing you'll wanna do is shorten all of your straps. In the photos you've shared it appears you'll want to shorten your shoulder straps. Then after you do that shorten the shoulder straps and see how it fits.

Ive tried taping them up, just to see where it would sit. But up at the neck, the plastic is still too long, and the abdomen for me is almost a whole chest piece

I would definitely be interested in going. I figure I'll wait until then before i do any cutting then.

I was trying to set up an armor party but if you've already got a solid date, would you mind if me (and perhaps the other people interested in mine) attended? I can bring beer & snacks :cool:
