The fleet  trooper costume turned out really well Larry   Smile 
I know that the helmet was a kit that you put together, but how did you come by the rest of it. Was it all made from scratch?
Where did you find the boots?

That is my friends store James he took a few photos the customers didn't know what the hell was going on when I walked in dressed like that most knew right of what I was aside from the young kids who thought I was a member of our military Smile I had fun though.

Lets see the whole outfit was bought although my sewing skills are not to bad it would have been more expensive for me to get all the material to make it here is the stuff I used the holster I made from a brown pool cue bag the belt and buckle were bought the buckle on ebay and the belt at a local store the blaster is a redone nerf fleet trooper one that I did myself,The boot are a set of 1960s black leather German jack boots from ebay which were perfect as the troopers boots are shorter and most have buckles on the sides, the shirt and vest were bought on ebay believe it or not from a place called hammerheart44 here's the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Rebel-Fleet-Trooper-Shirt-Vest-Pants-Costume-Halloween-set-/150792224352?pt=US_Costumes&var=&hash=item231beabe60 I figured for the price it would be a good template until I got the stuff and realised it was done really well aside from the pants they are not that great I accually have two that I bought I got a medium set first then a large as the medium was just a tad tight on me so if your larger the 160lbs the large is better if anyone wants the medium set shirt/vest let me know it dosn't do me any good Smile. The pants I used were from a army surplus store propper grey swat pants. the helmet was from a place called studio creations the price is really good and the quality is really good I got some great reviews for the whole outfit from a group of 501'st guys at the toy show which from imperial troops I will take as a great compliment lol.

Hey Larry, any chance you can repair the broken links in your first post?

Would be great to see your custome in TIG's Tosche Station.

Cheers

Marco
