Do your part to help the humble stormtroopers regain their reputation as the crack soldiers that once struck fear into hearts across the galaxy in a Realistic Stormtrooper Costume. This officially licensed Star Wars costume includes separate foam armor pieces attached to a black bodysuit, so it looks like the armor suits worn by Imperial troopers, but this is a lot more comfortable.

This is my cheap attempt at stormtrooper costumes for my 4 and 6 year olds. It's made to be lightweight and flexible for comfort but still hold true to the movie armor and look cooler than the store-bought stuff out there. Because of the materials used, these costumes won't hold up to rough play or prolonged wear. Actually, they got pretty beat up after simply trick or treating. Within the steps I'll tell you how I did certain things and what I would do differently. My son's costume was my first attempt and spent about 18 hours on it, not including drying time for paint and glue. My daughter's costume took less time because I based it on my son's templates just smaller and I gave it a little less detail (and I was less careful with cutting and glueing). Anyway, hope you find the instructions helpful. The result was ...
