Just when you feel like you never want to see another Stormtrooper costume, someone makes armor from carbon fiber. Well, in this case, four someones. A group of engineering technicians who work for San Diego Composites decided to blend their ability to work with carbon fiber with their love of Star Wars. The result is a costume that looks impressive enough to fit right into the films. Luckily the president of their company was on board and decided to donate some materials to the expensive project. Four suits of shiny, unique Stormtrooper armor or a nice car? I think the former is almost always a better option.
