Yes, It’s true. I do have a collection of Stormtrooper helmets in my office. And, yes… this really is a picture of me in my custommade Stormtrooper outfit. So it all began back in 2014 when we took a family vacation to Disneyland. While in line for the Star Tours ride, a couple of cast members in full Stormtrooper gear came walking through the line of visitors. At this point, my girls said it would be really cool if I had my own authentic Stormtrooper costume. When we got home from the trip I did a little research. It turns out an authentic Stormtrooper outfit can cost up to $3000. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, but no way! I dug a little deeper and found a company in the UK that had a set The Perfect Storm

of original molds. I contacted them and for $250 they sent me a vacuum molded set of armor pieces. I spent about 20 hours cutting out the molds and assembling the entire set of Stormtrooper armor and the helmet to movie original specs. So now anytime I want to spend 20 minutes squeezing into a complete Stormtrooper costume so that I can feel like I’m inside a plastic oven I’m all set! Rumor has it that there might be a video of a Stormtrooper dance contest that happened one night in the clinic…
