I had my first official troop in April at a library. Droves of kids came out for Star Wars reading day!
This was my first time out in my armor since I was approved by the 501st. I decided that C2E2 in Chicago was the best time to meet some members of the 501st and get out and say hi!
Here are some photos:
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.
