Star Wars Costuming Comlinks: Tools, Materials, and SafetyJune 21, 2016
Narrowing down the type of costume you want to build is a huge step. Once that's been done and you've planned your costume build, the next step to take is gather tools and materials. In addition to purchasing big pieces like a stormtrooper kit of armor, you will need tools to assemble the armor and materials to finish the pieces. Safety is another key element of creating a costume. Without taking steps to be safe, you could seriously injure yourself and cause permanent damage to your body.
