Another Rubies Vader Thread

I’ve had this costume sitting in a box for years and I’m too short to pull it off. I had a crappy mannequin but the pose was just straight with arms at the sides and legs together, not very menacing.

I carved up the joints and screwed them back together using aluminum strips so I could tweak the pose. Once I was happy, I locked it in with duct tape. Did the same with the fingers so I could get the gloves on. The head was a length of pvc pipe screwed in and wrapped with black cloth. I padded the suit in areas to bulk him up a bit and welded up a stand to keep him from toppling.

One day I plan on revisiting this and add a Saber to his hand, accurize the helmet and give him a repaint.

At least I can enjoy him for now in my theatre room.
