  1. According to the CRL they are knee high riding boots "no buckles snap tabs or decoration" they can have a stretch panel or zipper as long as it can be hidden on the inside of the leg and not visible from the front back or side. 

    I found my boots on ebay there are several vendors who sell supplies for WWII re-enactors they are not custom made so if you have large calves like me you will probably have to stretch them which really isn't that hard I used a solution of 50% rubbing alcohol and 50% water to get the leather wet inside and out then I placed a wooden 1x1 down the inside front and back and used a car scissor jack to push out on the 1x1s this keeps even pressure top to bottom let it sit for an hour or two and now you have boots that fit nicely. be sure to treat the leather afterwards because the alcohol dries the leather and will cause cracking, I use mink oil on all my leather. hope this helps, good luck with your build!  


  2. After seeing Star Wars for the first time who didn't want to be a Stormtrooper? But sadly not everyone's budget can accommodate the luxury of a full TK armor kit. But after doing some research I have found that there some very interesting characters on the Imperial Officer Corp. Plus the older I get I find that I'm more about comfort and it would really be nice to be able to see and sit while trooping! LOL Besides where else can I be a General or an Admiral or even a Governor!
