I've seen this up on Ebay selling for more than USD200... that's more than the cost of my helmet! Besides I've already constructed mine, almost similar looking but it does the job just fine and I spent no more than RM20 for it.
The thought has crossed my mind... but that important ingredient (and luxury) of time is sadly unavailable due to my hectic work schedule... that's why it took me 6 months to start working on the helmet in the first place... sigh.
Wow, a good few coats of auto paint sure made that Rubies costume something to shout about!
Again, great job Kal!
I have not yet seen a Rubies Vader costume up close. How good is the cape? Is it good to go or do you need to get a new one made?
I understand the bodysuit is also a bit on the shiny side, is that true?
I only got the hard parts, Pol... got it off a Belgian guy on the RPF. The rest of the stuff have to make myself. But I did hear about the body suit being shiny... but they rectified that with the V2... looks more leathery.
