Ok... This has to be familiar to you... unless you've hidden your head under the  sand the latest decades, but still if you need to know what we are talking about I recommend you a first read at this article

Also if you have been to ANY fantasy or sci fi convention I'm sure you have seen them as they're a common choice of  costume for this kind of events... So here we go guys let´s become an imperial Stormtrooper!

I don't know why but when I found sexiest Han Solo (and I know it sounds a bit odd) is when he was in the original Star wars A new Hope movie wearing one of this and holding the helmet showing his  real face... Cute... (ok, ok, yes I'm a girl from the eighties and yes I think that was sexy) but we´re covering Han solo Halloween costume very soon, meanwhile keep in mind the Stormtrooper to make a not so "obvious" Han Solo costume and not only to portray the "imperial bud guys"

In Ebay you can find a wealth of  stormtrooper costumes available, some over 1000 dollars and movie quality, and some cheaper props too. There´s a wealth of possibilities to choose from in a wide range of prices.
