A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the force was strong with 4-year-old Autumn Brock. But this tiny Star Wars fan wasn't interested in being a Jedi or even Princess Leia. It seems Autumn is drawn to the dark side and wanted her own Stormtrooper costume. Her dad, Jim Brock, a Star Wars super-fan, was happy to help. But Autumn wanted one tiny change to her costume. She wanted to swap out the usual white suit for a shiny pink version, and her dad happily obliged.

Brock, a talented costume maker, got to work on the tiny pink suit and the results are pretty amazing.

According to Brock, Autumn came up with the pink Stormtrooper idea because she wanted to catch the eye of her favorite Star Wars character and villain Kylo Ren at a Comic-Con convention. Turns out, she was right, because this tiny fan-girl got to meet the Dark Lord at the convention.

After making the costume, Brock posted the pics of his handy work on a popular props forum called The Replica Prop Forum. When they posted the Stormtrooper Autumn on Facebook, the pictures quickly went viral.

Since the picture was posted, it's received over 10,000 likes and 2,000 shares proving that the dark side (or the pink side) is a force to be reckoned with.
