Hello from the Redshirt!

#1 Post by Humlan » 14 May 2018, 23:46

Hi Nordics

I'm a fellow wannabe trooper, but still a far, far way off getting an approved costume.

I visited you at Nordsken this weekend, I was the redshirt :D

My biggest problems with deciding which style to go for are:

1. I don't want to cut my hair, that's why I had a bandage on my head...
2. Don't want to shave off my beard, AGAIN :p
3. I have glasses, totally blind without em.
4. I'm a cheap bastard :p

I have been looking at an officers uniform, but how many male officers with pony-tails do you see in the movies..?! Other options is something with a mask, prefer classic stormtrooper, but they are EXPENSIVE! Might go down the way of a Sith, but that is afaik slightly off for you foks? Part of me wants to create my own unique character, but I have also been looking at building a Darth Revan outfit... Being older with grey beard, when it grows back, I could perhaps pull off a Count Dooku.... There is no end to the possibilities :D

Welcome! You were definitely my favorite cosplay that I met out on the floor. I loved all your posing as well.

There are a lot of possibilites out there, and there are definitely a few bearded officers in the garrison, so that shouldn't be a problem.

I have a long dreads and a beard with the Reserve Pilot costume so ponytail and a beard should not be a problem.

Thanks for the kind words!

I might do a dual setup. Get one set that I'm can get approved and do an cheap-easy Revan as a side-project :D

Also, I could easy pull off Qui-Gon Jinn, since I got the beard and the hair... To bad he was light-side..

Welcome!
I think you should be able to find some character you like. If you like to keep it cheap, stay away from the plastic... 😉
A classic TK is not very cheap but I reckon a Scout Trooper could come out better in price.
Unfortunately my Imperial Death Trooper doesn’t count cheap either... 😱
Where are you situated? The bad guys here are living in Umeå and in Piteå.

I'm living in Luleå, so not so far off.

To many ideas and to little time :D Might start to work on an officers uniform for approval while also doing Revan or my-own Sith-lord. Since it took me 46 years to start, I'm in no rush :p
