I wear glasses. For those of you contemplating wearing your storm trooper helmet with your glasses it can be done, but it’s definitely not comfortable. I found an old pair of glasses with the prescription being close enough that they were usable and proceeded to install them directly into my helmet. So now I have a prescription storm trooper helmet. 🙂
We all get together with new members of the garrison to help answer questions as they build their armor to become full members of the 501st. The latest our party had a good turnout with a lot of extra work being done on the armor and a few full members who decided to get a second set of armor and put them together. Good people, good food, good conversation = an awesome time.
It took a while but I was able to line up the seams on my shins. I have big calves and skinny ankles so fitment was a definite art not science. They definitely lol a ton better now that I fixed the mix up for the anovos numbering. They just didn’t look right when I was initially trying to piece them together. After swapping a left to a right it all fell into place.
- I am currently using the anovos hook and loop to hold the calves together. I will be swapping it out for the elastic and bra hook set up you can find on whitearmor.net . A lot of people went that route. I decided that since I was learning, what better way to learn but on a fastener system that I knew I could remove easily.
