    A full Vader costume is mighty expensive...If I were doing one I wouldn't want a kids' toy for a helmet, though.

    Yeah, it's definitely not a suit to take lightly. I've known about a dozen guys that start it thinking they can do it cheap but the cheapest I've seen has been around $6200.

    NO!!!!!! Dear god do not base your suit around that. It's completely inaccurate. Your first starting point is the Don Post Classic Action helmet. The helmet is the most important part of the costume so you want the right one.

    I have ond of the original DP's from back in the 80's.

    The other thing to seriously consider is... how tall are you??

    So, who all is going? Do you want to meet up beforehand?
