You want to be best dressed at costume parties? Here’s something special for you. Anovos‘ high-tech Darth Vader costume is available for pre-order. Although, it’ll take your wallet to the Dark Side, but you’ll be hit in a fully wearable costume that balances both comfort and accuracy, based on the iconic villain’s look from The Empire Strikes Back. The costume features a three-piece leather undersuit, leather gauntlet gloves, fiberglass armor pieces, a chest box with LED lights, a belt, a codpiece, and a cape. But, what sets this costume ensamble apart is the attention to exacting details such as an asymmetrical mask, two-tone paint scheme, and 100 percent wool crepe cape.
This item is offered in both a Premier Line (a complete, quality grade leather three-piece under-suit ensemble, consisting of the two-piece jacket and vest, and pant, patterned and mirrored off the original soft-suit worn in the movie; also included are gauntlet gloves, also made out of quality grade leather and featuring ventilation mesh) and Standard Line offering (a full-body jumpsuit made out of high-quality faux leather, featuring breathable mesh for the comfort of the wearer; also includes gloves made of faux leather).
Both the Standard Line and the Premier Line otherwise come with all the same armor pieces, chest boxes, belts, and capes, while boots and lightsaber are not included due to licensing restrictions.
The pre-order pricestarts at $2,062 and rises to $5,780, but unfortunatelly the costume won’t be available for this Halloween, as shipments are not expected to begin until May 2015.
