Rogue Stormtrooper Cosplay

 

Trained from birth, Stormtroopers are dedicated to a life of discipline and loyalty to the Galactic Empire.

Most of these free thinkers devolve into defectors, or even traitors, but the rare few bravest amongst them rise up to become rebels.

And the best part is, it only cost $130! (Excluding the original cost for the helmet.)
