There are many, many possibilities with a Stormtrooper costume (Blaster not included). You could wear it plain. Switching out the helmet is an option. Add a pauldron and cover yourself in dirt to be a Sandtrooper. Paint it black and add tubes to pilot a TIE. Cannibalize bits of the armor to add to your Clone Wars Jedi outfit. If you have any skills whatsoever, you can get more than one Halloween’s worth out of this.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a meme contest, so let’s do that. It’s pretty simple – you find an image online, mess with it as much or as little as you want, then use a site like memegenerator to put a smartass slogan on top of it, and post your creation in comments below. The only rule this time is that the image must contain, in some form, a Stormtrooper or Clonetrooper variant (also it must be SFW – no Nudetroopers please!). Open to all U.S. residents; Canadians can win this time, but will be responsible for their own shipping costs. In the event the winner’s chosen size is sold out, Purecostumes reserves the right to substitute a prize of similar value.
You have until next Thursday, Oct. 9th, 2014 at noon. May you have better luck than a real Stormtrooper.
