1. I used all the shapes and most of the detail and added a few of my own based on some Stormtrooper reference photos. The shin armor I built over some rain boots I got from Walmart online. 2. If you already have the lenses cut from whatever material your going to use, just use hot glue in the helmet and place the lenses down. I didn't do a good job of cutting the old lense out, so I placed a piece a paper inside and drew a template from the outside, one is all you need cause you can flip it over to get a left and a right. Draw a line about a 1/4 inch or about 7 mm around your template line to create the edge to glue to. Then I placed some masking tape over the ski lense to protect it; drew my shape and used my scissors to cut out each lense to hot glue back in. Can't wait to see your build pics. - GeraldL26
Thank you for the templates as well! My son wanted to be a Shadow Trooper, so we painted it black and then clear coated after the plasti-dip process. Took longer, and I personally preferred the Storm Trooper look, but he plays the Battlefront Video game and requested this for Halloween. Amazon Mask's eyes were very blurry so they were cut out carefully and replaced with the green visor from the Amazon Astronaut Helmet. - kdo610
The "view all steps" option doesn't work. - lbell1
That looks SO GOOD! I'm going to be burning the midnight oil these next few nights to get this all together. Two Questions for you, if you don't mind: 1) Did you go exactly by the templates and 2) How'd you get the mirror lenses on the helmet? - KatherineS63
Final build photos. My nephew was absolutely excited. He loves stormtroopers so much. - GeraldL26
big thanks for the template :) :) :)
Finished the Incinerator Trooper armor. The classic armor still needs the Velcro and straps, but as I mentioned before the patterns are pretty straight forward.
Kid's Stormtrooper Costume
Trying to make this for a 5 year old, notice in older posts the PDFs were sized for an 8 year old. I printed the PDFs at 100% and they are way to small for my daughter, and if anything she is <50% on the growth charts. Are the PDF files supposed to be enlarged? Thanks a million!
hey try printing them out and then cut it out and glue it to a large pice of paper and trace around the template and leave about 1 inch of space. Hope this helps
I did. It really is a little small for a large adult. Barely fits me and I am 5'3". Got mine off eBay for like $7.25 and the kids astronaut helmet for $8.10. I cut the lenses out of the 3/4 mask and then used the green lense, cut new lenses, out of the old astronaut visor for the red helmet and had got a mirrored ski goggle lense that was cut for the standard bucket. For a better look as on the standard helmet, a piece of 3mm craft foam on the back to give it that edge and I used 1.75" pipe foam insulation for the back tube and ear lobes. Use Weldwood contact cement to attach and seal the pipe foam with elmers (PVA) glue as it is a weak closed cell foam. Just for a smoother texture. I wish I had used a few more layers. A little white silicon with a wet finger tip to smooth and blend your seams and then plasti dip the whole thing so you can get a uniform white paint job. I hand painted the frown, tear drops, head band, voice box and mic tips with acrylic paint. Then printed out the forehead vents on Avery white sticker paper. That was covered in some elmers to make it a little more pliable and seal it so I could cover the whole helmet with a clear coat. It sounds like a lot of work, but really isn't. - GeraldL26
These look amazing! Did you end up using an Adult 3/4 Storm Trooper Mask? - KatherineS63
I've started on this build and completed two helmets. I modded the design a bit using some extra types of foam. The standard trooper bucket I spent a little more time on as my nephew is more particular about his stormtroopers and the incinerator trooper bucket is for my other nephew who just got into Star Wars. The armor is coming along just as the templates have been laid out.
