Cosplayer Mikuo Rock Shooter > Costume of TK-0123 from Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Though being an armor kit, I had the parts come in pre made, but I made a lot of adjustments to fit my body since I'm pretty lanky for a guy. I added elastic velcro to the armor to secure it on me, added extra velcro to the thigh armor to fit me. The bucket is my crowning achievement of ingenuity. It's lenses are made from a 2 liter Dr. Pepper bottle, cut out and applied auto window tint to it,and simply duct taped in place inside. The rifle is a toy replica that looks almost spot on after some paint work.
- Personal Thoughts:
- The most expensive cosplay I have, and one that I've put a good amount of work into. The end result is something I'm happy to have. I've always wanted to be a Stormtrooper since I saw the 90s re release of A New Hope during my first trip to a movie theater, and I have to say its my dream cosplay come true.
