A little skinny to be a stormtrooper

Postby Drayc0s » Thu Feb 16, 2017 6:39 pm

I ordered a used stormtrooper suit and I am looking for advice / help fitting it. It seems to be properly sized height wise. The thighs and arms are a bit big. The belt is a tad long for me and I need to find some way to fit my glasses Infront of my face if possible. I'm also not sure how it's supposed to fit exactly so I'm going on intuition...

Edit: FYI I Have the detonator pack.

You just need some padding (foam) and adjustments. Your belt needs snaps or velcro to stay up where it belongs. Where do you live? If you attended one armor party you could finish it with some help.

As far as your glasses go...Just plan on not seeing when in armor :lol:

Many folks keep their glasses off during troops, even if they don't wear a buckets!
