Where did YOU buy your armor?

Postby Vantora » Wed Mar 06, 2013 8:57 pm

Hi, Old Line. I've been having trouble. The costume construct is going great, but I hit a road block. I was raring to make my own armor by process of thermoforming, but I got word from an admin that it would be better to buy a kit. Now I'm all confused on what to do. I don't know who to trust, and I don't want to blow my money on attempting hand-made armor without trying a kit first.

So my question is: Where did you guys get your armor? Did you make it? Did you order it from somewhere? If you ordered it, where? It would be such a huge help. Thank you so much in advance!

What costume are you working on? Also please put your name (first is ok) in your signature line so we know who you are. Thanks

Oh yes, I forgot I wasn't in the FISD forums anymore. ^^; I plan on a ANH Stunt Stormtrooper costume.

Honestly, if you are already on the FISD, they will have the largest wealth of info regarding who to buy from. Maybe some of our resident TKs can chime in here. though.

I have to agree with my two fellow troopers if you are on FISD they are one of the great places for resources on the White Armor.

I am sure other TKs on here can help you out as well though if they have sources already.

I went on a quick troll through the FISD (it's been a long while since I was on their boards regularly) and there seems to be a good opinion on TM armor. Fairly well accurate; not sure of the cost for a kit or who to order from. You might start looking for threads that discuss that set and see if you can identify a maker.

I would be happy to help put you in touch with someone or dig deeper to help you before you spend some money. If you have any questions and would like to email me, olggml@gmail.com. If I don't know the answer I will find someone who does.
