I can't wait to see pics of your kit when it arrives. Like Luis said, the more you share, the more we can help, and we love the helping.

Super organized. Looking good!

 

Thank you! Still waiting for the d-day....it's taking long than it should be :/ Btw I have been preparing for the belt, since I couldn't find some patent leather woman belt that can suit the armor, I ordered some fine cut Patent leather ...

Hello everybody. My name is Kalashnikov. Or at least that's what you can call me. I'm hoping to join your detachment and become a Shadow Storm Trooper. I'm expecting my Shadow Stormtrooper kit to arrive from Anovos any day. I'm wondering if the Anovos kit is authentic enough to be 501st approved. If not, I don't want to waste my time, and find another direction.

 

Can anyone help me? Is the Anovis kit authentic enough for approval?

Got off with a quick start with the helmet!

Glued the top and the back of the helmet with e6000

And as expected, they offered the wrong blue tubestrips and I got black ones ordered from Trooperbay earlier and set them immediately

Tkuk offered many Velcros for strapping. Since I wish to assemble this kit with a better standard for approval, I will be using snaps elastic and nylons for strapping. And to my disappointment, the lens are dark green instead of silver...

Stay tuned!

Trooperbay has mirrored tint lens material if you need some.

I just noticed as well!! In order to save some time tho, I got these from local shops:

They are elastic mirrored lenses and I think they should do as well
