Basic white, non-Rangers armor just wasn't working for this Stormtrooper

Stormtroopers from the Star Wars universe don't tend to be very distinctive. They usually sport all-white armor that makes them extremely easy to aim for, fails to protect them from blaster fire and seems to restrict vision considerably

But the one that showed up in Arlington on Tuesday, played by fan Natalie Arajuo, has quite an individualist streak. The suit's arms even included some decorations reminiscent of Josh Hamilton's flame tattoo.

“It actually didn’t take that long to create it,” she said. “What took the longest was getting [the letters] custom made and ordering the inside parts from China.”

It may not have been the only example of Stormtroopers cutting loose that's been seen in recent years, but Arajuo's terrific tribute to the Rangers and Star Wars was plenty impressive.
