How to make a Darth Vader costume yourself?
For many, Darth Vader's costume is still a mystery with seven seals. What is so unusual about him and why does Anekin generally carry this awkward mountain of metal?
And really, if you watch only movies and notto delve into the history of the "Star Wars", then its purpose remains vague until the very end. So what is Darth Vader's suit and how can you make it at home, for example, on a children's holiday?
Cloak. An ordinary black cloak with no extra frills and lotions.
Helmet.The most complex element, it reflects the whole essence of the dark Jedi, which reincarnated Darth Vader. A costume without this element will be incomplete in any case, because it is he who supports life and most of the functions of Vader's costume.
Shoulders.Heavy and more decorative, rather than functional, element of armor. According to traditional ideas, the suit of Darth Vader was made according to the drawings of ancient armor of the Sith warriors and includes some of their elements.
Bib. Bio-cybernetic component of the costume, which includes life support systems, a closed breathing cycle, as well as a system for controlling the exoskeleton costume.
Gloves, guards, greaves and shoes.Fully mechanized components, not just giving Vader to function within the capabilities of a normal person, but also enhancing his physical strength at times.
Belt.Darth Vader's costume is a system that ensures the viability of its carrier no worse than a real spaceship. Accordingly, the belt is not just an accessory, but a functional addition. It includes a medical module, a lightsaber and many diagnostic elements that allow you to most accurately and subtly control the wearer's suit.
Light sword.Where without it? This sword creates a concentrated, final stream of ionized plasma, having its own density, so that it can be used both as a weapon and as an auxiliary tool in many spheres of life.
How to make?
Darth Vader's costume in domestic or artisanalconditions are best made from light metal. Of course, some elements, such as a helmet or sword, are best bought in any specialized toy store, while the cloak, shoulder pads and other optional components of the kit can be made with your own hands. This is due to the fact that neither a helmet, nor a sword, to produce qualitatively and at the same time without unnecessary expenses at home, you simply will not get it. In the rest of the suit there is nothing that would require any special knowledge or skills to be produced. The base (breastplate) is very easy to make by sewing to the black turtleneck an unnecessary microcircuit from the computer. Cloak is just a piece of dense fabric trimmed around the edges. Greaves and armlets are made elementary, by gluing and subsequent painting of metal components, gloves and unnecessary shoes.
And remember that the main color in the suit is black, which means that any deviation in the color scheme will simply ruin the quality and appearance of your product.
