Im back at it again! I have a costume Idea based on a piece of art work I saw at a convention in 2008!
I have been trying to think of a way to do this since I saw it! Now I think I have it figured out!
This is my prelim design, the grey pinstripes represent the ribs in the suit! This costume will be mostly black witha few grey accents. It will also have rivits to simulate the armor being attached to the under suit! I will be doing this the same way I have done my costumes in the past. I plan on following the design with a few exceptions. I will have the vader helmet w the ears, the chest box, the belt boxes attached to a dark knight style belt, a scolloped cape and boots! Im not planning on using shin armor of the under cape. I plan on modifying it to be just the "skirt" starting at the belt. Im also planning on the armor to be a little more "bat like" as vader lacks the armor.
Anyway here is what I have to start with! Keep in mind this will be redesigned around the chest box.
