The term "storm trooper" was first used by the Germans in the First World War to describe the Canadian troops that they had to fight against. Canadian troops were most feared by the Germans during the First World War, and the German army always prepared for the worst when an attack was spearheaded by the Canadian army.
The term was then used again by Hitler before the Second World War for his army of soldiers when first forming the National Socialist Party. They were his elite troops, and when his infamous Beer Hall Putsch failed, and some of his storm troopers were killed by police, he forced the German people to honour them and salute every time they walked by a memorial plaque dedicated to them.
The term was used a third time by George Lucas in Star Wars as a name for the white-armour-clad soldiers of the evil Empire. Much like the National Socialist storm troopers, they were trained to show no fear or emotion.Answer
"THE CANADIANS WERE MARKED OUT AS STORM TROOPS; FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WAR THEY WERE BROUGHT IN TO HEAD THE ASSAULT IN ONE GREAT BATTLE AFTER ANOTHER. WHENEVER THE GERMANS FOUND THE CANADIAN CORPS COMING INTO THE LINE THEY PREPARED FOR THE WORST."
--BRITISH PRIME MINISTER LLOYD GEORGE, AFTER THE CAPTURE OF VIMY RIDGE
SPEARHEADING VICTORY IN 1918
The Somme had cost Canada 24,029 casualties, but it was here that the Canadians confirmed their reputation as hard-hitting shock troops. "The Canadians," wrote Lloyd George, "played a part of such distinction that thenceforward they were marked out as storm troops; for the remainder of the war they were brought along to head the assault in one great battle after another. Whenever the Germans found the Canadian Corps coming into the line they prepared for the worst."
May 1915 was the same time as the Second Battle of Ypres - the first major impact made by Canada on the war. Still stretches plausibility to say that the Germans were so impressed by the Canadian resistance they referred to the Canadians as stormtroopers and then used the term for their own infiltration units, all within a couple of weeks
The German Stoßtruppen first appeared October 1915 4 months after the second battle of Ypres in a successful assault on a French position in the Vosges Mountains.
You can't become a stormtrooper, but you can join the Imerial faction and purchase stormtrooper armor in order to say you are stormtrooper through roleplaying purposes.

There seems to be good reviews for the Santa Cruz Stormtrooper longboard. Many who have purchased this and tried it out have said they really like it and it is better than other boards they have had.
Online, you can buy stormtrooper costumes on amazon.com and buycostumes.com. Check big box retailers like Target and Wal Mart and specialty costume and party stores.
The "Star Wars" movie franchise introduced a long list of iconic movie characters that have become some of the most popular costumes in the world. The stormtrooper is one of the more famous Star Wars characters, but people often get confused when it comes to the best ways to dress as a storm trooper.Which Stormtrooper Costume Should I Wear?The most recognizable Star Wars stormtrooper costume is the one seen throughout the first trilogy of movies starting with "Episode IV A New Beginning." When you are considering which Star Wars stormtrooper to get, you should go with the classic. Otherwise you will spend most of your evening trying to convince people that you are dressed as a Star Wars stormtrooper.Any Special Costume Features I Should Look For?If you are going for a complete stormtrooper costume, then you need to get one that has a helmet with a microphone in it. Stormtroopers are well-known for the clicking on and off of a microphone each time they speak. If you can find a helmet with that feature, then you have an authentic costume.What Accessories Do I Need to Buy?Most stormtrooper costumes do not come with a blaster. But before you run out and buy the first toy Star Wars blaster you see, try to remember the stormtrooper rules for looking authentic. The small hand-held blaster that looks like a handgun is not for stormtroopers. That is a rebel weapon. The larger rifle-like guns are appropriate, or you can even get a sniper rifle to carry around your shoulder.How Should I Name My Stormtrooper Character?Stormtroopers are assigned a number and do not have a back story. If you want your stormtrooper presentation to be authentic, then identify yourself as a series of numbers and letters that can be something along the lines of ST-9080. If anyone asks for your back story, just blast them.Star Wars costumes are fun, and stormtrooper costumes are recognized by just about everyone. Remember that a stormtrooper only speaks when absolutely necessary, so learn to be efficient with your words to maintain character.
