My name is Darren and I live about 35 miles Southwest of Louisville, KY. I have been a long time admirer of the 501st and its many charitable activities. As you would guess, I am basically a lifetime Star Wars fan. Episode 4 hit the screens when I was 10 and I was immediately enthralled. I am very interested in putting together my own Stormtrooper (TK) outfit and submit it for approval. The problem is that I am not the craftiest person around. Can someone offer some suggestions or ideas to help me start putting together a good suit of armor? I didn't know if workshops were offered or informal group meetings of local members for this sort of thing.
I've been doing some research and I know I'll need the armor equipped for larger individuals. I am roughly 6'2" and about 220 pounds.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer.
