Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Last Updated: 09-24-2011
Dream costume! I've been wanting to make Darth Vader for 11 years now, and now I've finally made him. He is my absolute favourite villain of all time. Don't ask why, there's something about Darth Vader that makes me love him and his ways.
This was an interesting project. I had a replica sitting on a shelf that my wife had bought me for my birthday (2010), and I examined it to make sure that while I worked with the wonderflex and silicone that it was going to look the way I wanted. There was so much time to put into this cosplay that it's pretty ridiculous. I did wiring inside so that it would modify my voice, and with every inhale and exhale it would make the iconic breathing sounds that we associate with Vader.
Chestplate: Made out of a mix of wonderflex and pleather. I don't even want to go into the nightmare that making this was.
Everything fabric, was a mix of pleather, vinyl, and broadcloth.
Total cost to make?? I don't even wanna know...
