AT-AT Driver Costume

Completed Fall 2014

In late September 2014 I was bitten by the Halloween costume bug, as I often am. This time I decided to go all the way and make a full AT-AT Driver costume. This has always been one of my favorite Stormtrooper versions, thanks in large part to the old Kenner action figure. With just over a month to finish I burned the midnight oil and pulled it off! I had picked up the helmet cheap on eBay, it was a pretty bad recast, I'm not sure what it was copied from. While most of the focus of this costume is on the helmet, I did quite a bit of work to make the rest of the armor. This includes making a simple vacuform table, a first for me. There are some bits that I didn't get finished in time, my plan is to one day finish up the missing details and display the costume on a mannequin.

Check out the build log sections to read all about it. If you're working on an AT-AT driver build yourself feel free to contact me with any questions or info you have, I did quite a bit of research and am happy to share.
