    So none of the links in the sticky thread seem to work!

    Simple question, my sister in law wants me to source a Stormtrooper Costume for my brother's 30th birthday.

    Any recommendations on the best places to look/source one?

    Cheers

    I guess that really depends? Are you looking for like a legit set of TK armor or just something cheap to wear to a party? And by "cheap" I mean like are you willing to toss out several hundred dollars or are you thinking cheap cheap?

    I want something decent and legit, and am willing to sepnd some proper money, but not stupid money, if you catch my drift.

    I've looked at the official site from the guy who actually made the orgininals for the film. His battle armour is about £600, so this is probably a bit steep

    His price for armor is pretty much what you'll pay for screen accurate GOOD armor.

    Rubies armor is the cheapest, least screen accurate, but still better than nothing and that's still going to cost you over $600.

    The other thing I can recommend? Contact your local 501st Garrison. They probably can direct you to their best local contacts for armor.
