Armed with a pink spray can and steely determination, a creative dad has made a pint-sized Stormtrooper outfit for his Star Wars-mad daughter.

After seeing a Stormtrooper costume posted online, Jim Brock from Indiana in the US decided he could replicate the iconic suit himself. But 4-year-old Autumn had one special request: it had to be pink.

Brock, who has crafted intricate Ironman and Thor costumes in the past, made the outfit for his daughter to wear to a Comic-Con convention.

The candy-coloured costume attracted much attention at the comic show, and caught the eye of Autumn's favourite Star Wars character, Dark Lord Kylo Ren, who posed for a pic with the tickled pink tot.

A picture of Autumn in her Stormtrooper garb was shared on a prop forum before going viral on Facebook, where it received over 10,000 likes and 2000 shares.

While little Autumn loves to wear her custom-made outfit around the house, her dad is stunned by all the attention the costume has been getting. "I feel pretty good and proud," he told Huffington Post. "I didn't expect this kind of attention from it, I just hope my daughter enjoys it for future projects."
