Hey, fun drinking game. Every time I mention "Stormtrooper" you take a drink. Challenge your friends!
I have a fondness for variations on a theme. Take Star Wars for example. Well, Stormtroopers to be specific. To me, they are a nearly inexhaustible well of ideas to play off of. Need an interesting story hook? Why not throw in some Stormtroopers. Want a unique character idea? Stormtrooper. When we used to play the Star Wars RPG, I created Jub Jub, the Ewok Stormtrooper. My current project is TK-182, the Force Sensitive Stormtrooper. My goal is to get a couple more Stormtroopers and repaint/redeco them into Light and Dark Side appropriate costumes.
What? I think a lightsaber-wielding Stormtrooper would be AWESOME. Picture Darth Maul with a Stormtrooper helmet. I knew you'd see it my way.
Ok, like I mentioned in my last post, I want to start using more props and less backdrops. Today I'm using a castle piece from my old tabletop gaming days that I found while cleaning out the closet. This time I went back to the stovetop, but only because I used candles to light the shot. I just don't have any lightbulbs that produce that amount of light, and I can't put a candle in the lightbox.
My posts may be sporadic while I'm building props, so please bear with me. I will definitely keep taking pictures, but they may not all be the quality I'd like.
If you strike me down, I will become more EXIF than you can imagine:
