we rented a storm trooper costume for a project at work. it was an official costume. i thought that was cool. the guys thought it was amazing. it was perhaps the best day of their lives. everyone took turns wearing the costume, walking around the office. looking intimidating.
by the end of the day, the storm trooper was pretty much assimilated with the culture at the office. he wasn't very much of a talker though.
i couldn't let the costume leave our hands without trying it on myself. the problem is that it was meant for a 6 foot something male. so, the base layer was enormous on me.
i was the shortest storm trooper ever. and i stood like a girl. (according to the kings of storm trooper-stance knowledge.)
i still managed to surprise a few people before i turned in my storm trooperness
