Its abvious that the stormtrooper costume is one of our major passions when it comes to SW costuming, but where did that passion begin?

I know people who did jedi costumes first and then learnt the ways of the darkside - and people who have only ever worked on one costume - but where did it all begin for you?

My first obsession was with Darth Vader, as he was the main man.. and i spent a couple of years working on a generic costume before concentrating on the ANH version. Later i decided i was not tall enough and looked at the TK, and have never looked back since..

This is me meeting Dave Prowse for the first time back at the end of 2006 in my mostly homemade Vader costume Smile

I went straight for the iconic TK and decided on an AP suit as my first build ...





... am now building my second set of TK Armour which is a 2010 TM ... an am also working on an AT-AT Commander (aka General Veers)

My first costume was Luke in X-Wing pilot gear, back when I was 12 or 13.
I had a bright orange shirt and trousers on, a shortened undershirt as flakvest with a scratchbuilt chestbox from cardboard and random stuff, my winter boots and my Kenner Luke ROTJ lightsaber and felt like the king at our school's carnival party :D
Sadly I have no pictures of that.

I do remember dreaming of my own R2 unit back then though, and that's what got me into Star Wars props and costuming years later, even if it's not a real costume...

Man, I'll show my early costuming attempts however sucky they might be. :D

I built a Vader costume when I was 15 and actually wore that abomination to many 1997 Special Edition screenings...



All home-made except the helmet.
After that, my 2008 FX recast stormtrooper was the second costume.

Thank god I arrived at TM in 2011! :D

on early 2000,i always bought star wars toys,wish i can 'be' one as a stormtroopers
years after the SE came out i almost bought rubies when i saw it on swshop(you guys know how 'awesome' the photo is ),i think it is awesome that there's a wearable stormtrooper costume,and almost a go with it and buy it,thank God i learn my way to the forums,webpage and learned the real look on that....thing,THANKS Y'ALL!!cheers
finally,my first costume is AP(more less),and it still had most part of my current costume after 2+ years had an assembly problem,weathering problem,a gruesome destroyed part(!!),and many more,and still tweaking it today.
one of my biceps got destroyed,and TM got me replacement partS!!!(biceps and forearms) Thanks a lot Paul!! my chestplate also had a crack,and i also bought TM chestplate,but i figure i would wear my old one and keep my TM chestplate for completing the rest to a new ones bounce
this photo is actually the first time i wore the whole costume together,1+ year after(maybe)

And the first time after i 'finish' it last year

not change much since,only replacing the helmet after i sold my AP one,adjust some straps for a more proper look,and waiting for new boots.
my body is changing since 2+ years ago,and i cant make the thigh higher...oh well

Please don't laugh.

Ah what the hell it makes me giggle:


It did get a bit better:



It was completley scratch built except the lid and Rufkins gauntlets though. Embarassed

I was lucky; I had this bloke from the UKG called Mark advising me so my first Star Wars costume was my TK TM.

In the year of Star Wars release at the cinema I was dressing as something else! Laughing

My first ever Star Wars costume was Darth Maul that I did in a rush for a uni society Halloween party back in 2006.



Since then I have progressed to TIE pilots but hope to revisit the Maul now I have the time to build it properly and am probably mad enough now to shave my head.

My first costume (well decent attempt at one) was back in 2004. FX armour with the customary HUGE FX bucket.



I soon saw the error of my ways and upgraded to a RT-Mod lid.... and heavily modded the FX armour too.



Had many incarnations of TK armour and other costumes since then...
