    Hi, i would like to say "sorry" to all ultrahipermega fans of Star Wars. I ´m only 5´18 ft, therefore i made a Darth Vader costume for my size. It´s non accurate but nice to see.
    The chest and the shins ar totally custom for my size. The helmet is a Toys arus toy modified and renovated. Have breathing sound with 8W speaker and a little fan. Under suit is in nylon, very easy to cut and sew. The chest box is a toy renovated. The gloves.... very bad, i know. The belt is from scratch and the cod piece a camping matt foam cutted and lined. I need that the cape cover more shoulders. In the next cape 2.0 i`ll make.:)
    I hope that you enjoy with the build process.

    Terrific job.

    Nice to see someone realize not every mold has to be a silicone mummy mold.

    Glass to glass works too.

    I say outstanding work!!! And hell, not every costume has to be "screen accurate". Sometimes we forget that what we do should be first and foremost FUN!!!! :thumbsup

    I actually like that you decided to make the costume suit you. You made it your own. I like to see costume makers do that, especially if they do it well. Your costume looks amazing! As long as you're proud of it and enjoy wearing it, then you did a perfect job.

    I like seeing people sculpt their armor parts from scratch. Yours looks very good. I'd have loved to see the helmet sculpted, too. Looks like you could have done a nice job with that as well.
