The Few, The Proud, The White

Post by SlvrCrest » Wed Dec 03, 2008 12:51 am

Well I'm starting my path down to the dark side......finally.

I'm hoping to getting the cloth parts done during my down time over X-mas holidays. And maybe posting on here might help me finish faster.

There's been a few Snowtroopers floating around Michigan over the years. Not sure how many are left, though. Good project, especially with this weather! :lol:

I thought you just had a really great tan for an Irishman, especially with a last name like O'Hnui.

I'll be keeping an eye out for any additions to this thread, along with the PROUD announcement of an upcoming armor party, because this is ideally the costume I wish to begin my trooping run with.

Yep, I wanna be part of the "cool kids" group, for a change! :thumbs:

Got my boots last week, they definitely have that weathered look, and some permanent mark on them for some reason, not sure why, but somebody put a green mark on the top of the boot and a big D on the side of one of them. Hopefully it'll come of with a little elbow grease.

I have the same big D on my muk-luks. If you figure out a way to remove it, let me know!
