Why Choose Us?

 Who Are We? We are a group of costuming enthusiasts and general fun-lovers and shenanigans-committers who just really love making and wearing costumes and props from movies and video games. We are proud to have two found members of the 501st on board our staff. We are a part of Parjai Squad out of Pensacola Florida, hence the 850 in our name (that's our phone area code!). We travel for conventions, for costume appearances, and to indulge our desire for feasting and debauchery.

Our Policies. Have fun with YOUR armor. Make it look like the picture. That's all it takes to build a great costume. We build our kits for us first and others. We like to share the joy of the hobby of building armor with everyone. What you receive from us is exactly what we use plus some know how and a handy shop full of junk. If you don't feel like you can do one of our kits justice, get back in touch with us for a commission build or see your local 501st guys and ask about armor parties. They're loads of fun and a great way to meet your fellow troopers while building your armor. We sure like hosting armor parties here and certainly hope they're just as much fun for you!

At a 501st event for a little girl's bday this past weekend I decided to take a swim to cool off thanks to the Florida heat. 

Armor held up great. Zero issues. It was light weight enough that I had no problem staying at the surface, where a fiberglass suit would have most likely had me sinking like a rock. Belt stayed in place, no seams split, no joints failed.

Yep, I'm an 850AW fan boy. But do your own research. Shop around. Look at prices. Look at delivery times. Look at what you get for what you're paying. The kits are designed from the start for wearability, flexibility, and the ability to customize it to fit you regardless of height/weight. 

You'll pay half the price of most other armorers out there for a quality kit that won't crack and split like fiberglass or 3D printed pieces do under pressure.

About Us

If you're here, you may have already been following us for a while.

We truly got started because the right people, tools, and knowledge were all available together at the same time. We have provided armor, costumes, helmets, and weapons as 850 Armor Works since 2016 in Pensacola, FL.

We specialize in 3D modeling, 3D printing, vacuum forming, resin casting, rubber mold making, rotational molding, and product design.

We have a love for our fandoms, but we also work with inventors for prototyping. If you have an idea, we can help.  

Location

We work in a hot Florida warehouse in the summer and a cold Florida warehouse in the winter.  We literally have an open door policy, but appointments are required.  We are not always staffed or prepared for visitors.
