Committee member Ty has kindly provided SparkCC with a Vacuum Forming Machine!
For those unfamiliar with the vacuum forming process, this machine allows a sheet of heated plastic to be stretched over a mold to create almost any shape imaginable.
The qunitessential example of Vacuform is of course the armour worn by Imperial Stormtroopers:
Once you know that their armour was made of plastic you realise why it always seemed pretty useless against blaster fire.
The vacuform can be used to make all sorts of things but will be of particular interest to any Cosplayers out there looking to take their costume making to the next level. If all else fails we can create our own clone army and take over The Universe, (or perhaps just West Gosford to start with)!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
