STAR WARS This set of sandtrooper armor was custom built using a Rubie's Stormtrooper costume as the base. The helmet is a limited 500 piece EFX Sandtrooper helmet that I modified, changed the lenses to Dark green movie accurate lenses and added a voice amplifier and speakers in it. I also modified and painted it to match the rest of my armor. Later the belt and shoulder straps were replaced with canvas straps. The entire snap, buckle, and close system was built up by myself. Certain elements of the armor that are unique to sandtroopers were sculpted by myself in order to modify this from stormtrooper armor. Boots where purchased from Caboots.com. Additionally, leather ammo pouches and shoulder pauldrons were purchased from dealers online and then painted/weathered by me. This is several different coats of various desert earthy colors applied with brushes, sponges, tissues, etc.
This was created in anticipation for the new Star Wars Episode VII movie coming out in 2015. My wife and I are the models for this one. I created the clothing using a cloth texture and the spikes on my character were created from some pictures I took of some lobsters we had for dinner.
