There isn’t enough clone trooper cosplay in the world. Star Wars makers tackle stormtrooper armor on the regular, but the more colorful clone troopers from the prequel era don’t get as much love. Redditor SuperDuperMAC is helping to change that with his Captain Rex ensemble. It’s based on the character’s animated look in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and he’s joined by a friend dressed as Commander Cody.
They started the project with clone trooper armor kits from KW Designs and did all the cutting, shaping, sanding, filling, gluing, and painting themselves. Here’s how SuperDuperMAC weathered his Rex kit:
I hit it pretty hard with spray paint. Like, covered it in some areas. Then I took fine sand paper and went to town. After I did that with black and brown, I covered the whole thing with a light spray. I made sure that I thought about impact points and creases. Basically tried to make it as realistic as possible.
