Using foam sheets, glue, Velcro strips, spray paint and a few other inexpensive items you can make these impressive stormtrooper costumes for your little ones, just like this crafty fan did.
This is my cheap attempt at stormtrooper costumes for my 4 and 6 year -olds. It’s made to be lightweight and flexible for comfort but still hold true to the movie armor and look cooler than the store-bought stuff out there. Because of the materials used, these costumes won’t hold up to rough play or prolonged wear. Actually, they got pretty beat up after simply trick or treating.
Within the steps I’ll tell you how I did certain things and what I would do differently. My son’s costume was my first attempt and spent about 18 hours on it, not including drying time for paint and glue.
My daughter’s costume took less time because I based it on my son’s templates just smaller and I gave it a little less detail (and I was less careful with cutting and gluing). Anyway, hope you find the instructions helpful. The result was a ton of fun and the kids got a lot of attention. Cheers!
