For anyone who didn't already think cosplaying can be awesome, check this out: this guy in Australia was cosplaying a stormtrooper when he unfortunately got bit by a snake! He thought it was dead, but when he reached for it, it turned out to be alive! He was walking for an awesome charity cause!
“The good news is, the armour…he bit me in the shin, and the armour actually protected me and stopped the bite,” says Loxley. “I could feel the teeth on the plastic scraping, but the armour actually stopped something! So all those people who rag on stormtroopers, saying the armour doesn’t do this or doesn’t do that, it stopped a snake bite and probably saved my life.” Check out the video in the second slot to hear the same thing in his accent ;)
So, next time you set out to do something dangerous, don't forget your suit of Stormtrooper armor, lol!!
