A Little Short

I have finally received most of the parts for a future project of mine. Last year as part of a Special promotion for May the 4th I purchased a kit for a nearly screen accurate Storm Trooper costume. I have now received the first box containing the helmet and all the hard plastic pieces and I have started to realize that this is a project of significant scale. In order to lay out all the armor pieces I have to add two leaves to our dinning room table. All the pieces are straight from the vacuum forming press and need to be cut out before assembly of the armor can even begin. My current hope is that I can get it all finished before the fall where between conventions and Halloween I’ll have some good opportunities to wear it.
