Bell Rogue Helmet: Ride Like a Stormtrooper

When you’re riding a motorcycle, you need protection. Personally, after having a couple of minor accidents, I can appreciate the idea of a full-face helmet, especially if you like to ride fast. The Bell Rogue Helmet helps protect your face from bugs and wind while looking totally badass.

Carbon Troopers: Stormtrooper Armor Gets the Carbon Fiber Treatment

Leonard Carson had been toying with the idea of combining carbon fiber with stormtrooper armor for some time. He managed to convince three of his co-workers join his cause and this is the result. I have to say that these carbon troopers look quite impressive.

Stormtrooper Helmet Made from adidas Sneakers

It seems appropriate that the week that I got myself a pair of adidas adiZero Feathers, a stormtrooper helmet made completely out of adidas sneakers turns up. This helmet was created by the blogger Freehand Profit of The Hip Hop Nerd to promote StarWarsRemix.com.

adidas Stormtrooper and Other Fun Cosplay from Dragon*Con 2011

This is kind of funny because I never thought that any company would sponsor The Dark Side, but here you have it, the adidas Stormtrooper, ready to die for Darth Vader, while promoting the popular athletic-wear brand. Actually, I like the red color of the Stormtrooper costume. It almost makes me want to have one too, minus the adidas logo. At least he looks like he’ll be comfy while he runs in this armored tracksuit.
