I grew up with Star Wars. My first movie was Empire Strikes Back, I saw it with my dad when I was 4 years old. It is still my favorite movie of all time and the reason why I love movies.

Since then, Star Wars has been a part of my life in some way or another. I have seen the entire saga over 30 times, read over a hundred SW novels and comics, and own over 450 pieces of SW memorabilia.

I am now trying to share that same passion with my children (and wife). The trilogy came out on Blu-ray earlier this year and we watched them as a family. The series aired on Cartoon Network last week and we watched every episode together. The new Transformers 3 movie is next up on our list.

And now the big one…The Old Republic!

On May 25th, 1977 a movie was released that would change the world of cinema forever. It was a movie that started my love affair with movies and made me want to be a part of this magical thing called Movies!

That movie was Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It is hard to believe that it has been 35 years since Star Wars first hit the big screen! And I can still remember the first time I saw it! I was 5 years old and my brother and I were watching TV with our cousin (who was visiting). We were flipping through the channels when we came across the NBC Nightly News with John Chancellor. He said something about a movie called Star Wars and showed some stills from the movie of a guy in an all white suit fighting a guy in black on another planet. My cousin turned to my brother and said “You want to see this?” My brother looked at me, I looked at my cousin and we all yelled “Yeah!”

The next weekend we went to see Star Wars for the first time. As soon as the opening crawl began we knew we were seeing something special. For us it was like nothing else we had ever experienced before. The opening battle between the Rebels and Empire was awesome

The concept of the “Darth Vader Costume” was begun by George Lucas in 1976. The story behind the costume is that a bunch of kids from the nearby planet Tatoonie were playing a game called “Jedi Killers,” when one child accidentally killed another with a lightsaber. This sparked an interest in all things Star Wars, and so they decided to create their own costumes based on their favorite characters or items.

It was then that the idea of the Darth Vader costume was born. These costumes became quite popular, and many websites and stores began selling them. Some even had their own design and pattern, which made them very unique and desirable. The demand for these fantastic costumes soon became so high that they are now being sold at very reasonable prices.

Darth Vader Costume

The Darth Vader costume is one of the most instantly recognizable costumes in history. It has been copied by millions around the world and is one of the most used costumes for fancy dress. It is instantly recognisable as it has been utilised by many different people in a variety of film and TV shows.

The Darth Vader Costume In Star Wars

Darth Vader made his first appearance on screen in 1977, with the film release of the original Star Wars movie, titled “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope”, produced by George Lucas. He was portrayed on screen by David Prowse wearing a specially created costume and mask. The voice of Darth Vader was performed by James Earl Jones, who currently narrates a number of car adverts that are shown on TV. The Darth Vader costume worn in the films was specially made to fit David Prowse and he leant his body movements to the character, while James Earl Jones leant his voice to make this one of the most iconic characters ever seen on film.

During his time as Darth Vader he appeared not only in “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” but also in “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) and “Star Wars:

Darth Vader Costume: The Dark Lord of the Sith himself is probably one of the most iconic villains in our culture today. Arguably, he may be even more popular than the film series itself. What’s the appeal? Is it his mask? His cape? His lightsaber? His booming voice? The fact that Luke is his son? All of those things play a part in creating this legendary figure, but it seems to go deeper than that. Perhaps it’s because we can relate to him. We all have a dark side, a side that we try to keep hidden but that still comes out sometimes. Darth Vader is the ultimate representation of our personal struggle with good and bad. Sure, he made some mistakes in his past, but we can all relate to that too.

The biggest part of the costume, in my mind, is the helmet. I’m going to make it from a balloon and paper mache. The basic idea is to blow up a balloon, cover it in paper mache, let that dry, then cut out the holes for the eyes, mouth, etc and repaint it.

Here are some pictures of other people’s helmets and my progress so far:
