How to Find a Great Darth Vader Costume

Jul 8, 2008
Star Wars fanatics come in all shapes and sizes. Opening night of a Star Wars movie at any theater is always a huge event where all kinds of fans come dressed up as their favorite characters. After having waited in line for days just to get into the cinemas, fans don costumes of Darth Vader or Storm Troopers and can easily be spotted in the crowd.

If you've ever found yourself dressed up as Darth Vader, you're probably a bit of a fanatic about the Star Wars movies. After all, the costume is not a simple one to put together, and it's certainly not easy to slip in and out of.

Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted a real, high-tech Darth Vader suit. I remember seeing one in a movie memorabilia store back in the 80's, and my young imagination started picturing me in a heated lightsaber duel with some Jedi Knight.

Although such imaginative fantasies tend to dissipate as fans grow older, they would still probably love to suit up in a fancy, well detailed Vader costume. For fans that don't make trips to Star Wars conventions, Halloween is the best time and excuse to become Darth Vader.

If you're thinking of a Darth Vader costume for Halloween this year, it's time to get on the ball. The big night isn't far away, and the best costumes get harder to find as you get closer to the night.

Many Internet costume shops offer great Darth Vader costumes and will gladly ship your order until just a few days before Halloween. Waiting until the last moment, however, might mean that your dream costume has been sold out.

The Internet will be the best place to find your costume if there are not professional costume shops in your area. Online shops also have a better selection. Department and drug stores don't offer the high quality costumes that diehard Vader fans are looking for.

And the great thing about Darth Vader is it doesn't matter who you are - male or female, young or old. It's a full body suit and mask so nobody even needs to know who's under there if you don't want them to. Just be prepared for a lot of heavy breathing and "I am your father" quotes!
