With the recent release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, I have a handful of costumes inspired by the film to share over the coming weeks. I posted about a Cassian Andor ensemble this morning, and now I want to look at a shoretrooper. This type of armor was introduced for the some of the stormtroopers stationed on the tropical planet of Scarif. I’m seeing costumers tackle the build, and Savanna Kiefer, a.k.a. The Dorky Diva, helped a friend make a shoretrooper kit in 48 hours so he could wear it to a Rogue One premiere event.
She documented the speedy construction at her blog. Here’s how they started their work:
The first thing I worked on was the helmet, which was a piece of cake because I only had to Dremel out the eyes and neck opening. Then I started assembling the forearms and biceps while Wes assembled the complex shins. After that we both worked on the chest and back pieces, both hacking away at little details that had to be added to the overall set that fit together to create one piece. We struggled with the ab plate at first and then finally figured out how it was supposed to look and assembled that. By the end of the first day, we had all of the pieces primed and ready to be painted the next day.
