This week in cheap Stormtrooper costume ideas, we examine Jason’s Stormtrooper trash bin helmet, an idea he was forced to employ after a student of his promised to lend him a costume for a school event, yet failed to deliver. In a blind panic, Jason grabbed the closest object within arm’s reach and improvised. Here is what you’ll need according ...

Jon Stewart Stormtrooper Action Figure

Both with and sans goatee. The Jon Stewart Stormtrooper Action Figure was one of the many awesome little gadgets made especially for last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V convention, honoring the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back and the culture of Star Wars collectibles. Stewart interviewed George Lucas during the Celebration V festivities. Since Jon Stewart’s goatee went missing ...

The Good, The Bad and the Dark Side: R2-D2 Stormtrooper Helmet

“Hey, Artoo, you look a little different today.” “Who? Me?” “Yeah… you. Did you get a haircut?” “Uhhh… no, no, I’m on a diet. I’ve lost a few pounds.” “Ahh, that explains it. Wait… could you speak English yesterday?” “Ummm… yes?” “Oh, alright then. Carry on.” If Darth Vader ever wants to send a mole over to infiltrate the geniuses ...

Minor Star Wars Characters with Ridiculously Detailed Backstories

The line between fanfic and official Star Wars canon becomes blurred with every passing day, but purists know how to separate the fiction from slightly-truer fiction. The truth is that in some way or form, every character that appeared on screen for more than a millisecond (and even some among those) have developed complete backstories thanks to the vast expanse ...

The Brave Little Stormtrooper

“Because you’re my child and you will wear what I TELL YOU TO WEAR DAMMIT!” *folds arms in defeat* Just because we acknowledge that this is the cutest, most diminutive Stormtrooper we’ve ever seen, doesn’t mean we have to accept it. Or does it? I don’t know, I’m no philosophy major. But I think you already deduced that based on ...

Cheshire Cat Stormtrooper Helmet

I’m not quite sure where the merging of Alice in Wonderland and Star Wars became an idea that seemed worth trying, but I’m glad it happened. The Cheshire Cat Stormtrooper Helmet makes your typical imperial trooper seem creepily happy and just a tad too furry. I doubt these helmets would ever pass Darth Vader’s stringent uniform protocol, but a trooper ...

Star Wars Gone Wild Tattoo

Remember a few months ago when we posted about the Star Wars Burlesque show which featured a scantily clad Boba Fett and the like? Well, it was hot, so you should probably check it out. But anyway, apparently someone was so enamored with the concept that they had the image of the ample breasted Stormtrooper tattooed on their skin. As ...

Hello Kitty Stormtrooper

Spotted at Comic-Con was this ridiculous pink Hello Kitty Stormtrooper. What the fuck?! What in the hell is this? Why is this necessary? Why do people feel the need to mangle the universe of Star Wars with the cutesy irrelevance of Hello Kitty? It’s just one of those things I’ll never understand.
