Tested Chats With Prop Builder Gordon Tarpley Who Specializes in Making Detailed C-3PO Costumes

Prop builder and cosplayer Gordon Tarpley of GT Props specializes in building C-3PO costumes that are very detailed. Norman Chan of Tested recently met up with Tarpley to chat with him about his “build process, how he’s improving his suit, and what it takes to perform as this iconic Star Wars character.” Chan also helped Gordon put on his amazing Star Wars: The Force Awakens style C-3PO costume for a test run.

We previously wrote about Gordon and a Star Wars droid leg lamp that he built back in 2012 inspired by the leg lamp seen in the 1983 holiday film A Christmas Story.
