With those boots are the sizes running large or small? I take a 9.5 shoe and I think they only sell in even sizes?
Thought I heard they run a bit small and you'll want to order up 1 size. Not positive about that.

Re: Stormtrooper build / purchase

Register for the forums at whitearmor.net. There, you can find out who the good vendors are to get kits from, who to avoid and how to assemble it all.

Re: Merch

You have to have a costume built and be a full member in order to be able to get merch. Lucasfilm doesn't allow us to sell merch to the general public.

That would probably work. Are you also on the forums at 501stclonetroopers.com? Lots of great advice there too.

Not too bad. Only part that looks off to me is the chin part seems a bit too warped.

Re: Looking for build tips and tricks

We have character-specific web sites called "detachments" where you can find armor vendors and all the info on how to put it all together. Do a ton of reading/research into the costume you want to do before buying anything. You can find the list of detachments here: https://www.501st.com/detachments...

Aerators.

I believe Galactic Armory has accurate files. I know a few people have been approved with their armor.

Re: Stormtrooper Costume for Trade - Fun Project w/a local brewery

Hi. Sorry, but our costumes are our personal property, some costing $5,000 or more and we don't like to loan them out to people. Plus with the virus going around, it would be a bad idea anyways. :)

Thanks for the tips. 50 gal has been about the size I'm looking at. Good to hear her Fett fits in there nicely. Helmet included? I've been looking at helmet bags in addition to a case.
The Dewalt linked above is 63 gallons. Probably better to get that one.

Re: Costuming question

They can just buy the costume. Have your friend register for the forums at imperialofficer.com. Cosplaysky has the most inexpensive costumes, but there is A LOT to read up on before ordering from them. Even if you send in custom measurements, they tend to mess things up.

To add to this: a lot of people belong to one garrison and will troop in their own garrison and will also troop a neighboring one as a "guest trooper".

That's kind of odd, given the Legion stance that weapons are not required for costumes.

Actually, weapons are not a requirement. But if you want one, I'm sure you could just do the hilt.

Not that I know of. My clone did not have any.
