Darth Vader Costume Guide 2010

Darth Vader, aka Anakin Skywalker makes for a truly excellent costume. But dont be skimpy or braindead while selecting your accessories or you will look like a character from Spaceballs or Revenge of the Nerds drop out!

Unlike most movie inspired costumes, for the right price you can actually purchase Darth Vader costume elements that are molded from the same casts as the Movie Props!

That is unusual and any true Star Wars fan wouldnt dare wear anything then less than an official copy.

""Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me."

This Darth Vader Costume and Prop Buying Guide includes the top choices, most from the official line. A comparison is made between Amazon prices and eBay prices when applicable. Often eBay will be cheaper for single items but dont forget that multiple item purchases through Amazon are eligible for free Super Saving Shipping.

To the right you will see the Supreme Edition Darth Vader Costume , every aspect of the costume is molded from replica casts of the actual movie props. This is as near to wearing the actual Darth Vader outfit as you can get.

May the force be with you!

Darth Vader Costume Sets for Children

Since the Darth Vader costume includes a helmet and chest piece its important to get a proper fit. The child costumes available are well sized and have many options to fit any body type.

On Amazon you can get a complete costume for under $40 usd, On eBay you can get the same items for around $20 usd!

Dont Forget the Light Saber add-on!

Adult - Darth Vader Costumes

It is possible to buy a Darth Vader costume piece by piece, but it really isnt necessary. Star Wars has been popular for a very long time and the costumes are very well designed, its a competitive market.

Shoddy Darth Vader Costumes are harder to come by then you would imagine.

Darth Vader will always be the man, practice your Darth Vader quotes or buy the mask that actually changes your voice and has built in quotes and side effects! (below in mask section)

The best option is Supreme Edition Darth Vader costume highlighted in this article, but it also has the highest price tag. Its not a one time wear costume, this is the type of outfit you wear to the mall, just because.. or to a Star Wars convention.


This wearable Darth Vader mask and helmet set is certified and approved by Lucas Licensing. Produced using the original movie molds from Star Wars "The Empire Strikes Back." This dynamic two-piece set is manufactured in high-grade durable ABS plastic and injection molded capturing every detail of the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Tinted lenses, real metal detailing, adjustable strapping and full foam-lining are all features of this collectors quality helmet. Each Helmet is individually packed in a full color display box.

Darth Vader Helmets for Halloween Costumes

Officially Licensed Darth Vader Helmets and Masks

The Darth Vader Helmet to the right is amazing. Its the officially licensed product from Lucasfilms. What makes it stand out from the rest of the Darth Vader Helmets and Masks?

Its cast from the original Darth Vader Mask! Its the exact same Helmet as appeared in the original films!

Hasbro Star Wars Darth Vader Voice Changer

At a slightly decreased cost, the Hasbro Darth Vader Helmet with Voice Changer and Sound effects is really cool too, It has an actual voice changing chip will allow you to talk just like Darth Vader, it also has built in trademark sound effects and the famous breathing noise!

Luke, I am Your father - this one never gets old!

Darth Vader Halloween Light Saber

The History Of Light Sabers is very interesting and complex, In early Jedi History, Jedis and Siths were responsible for finding and acquiring the proper crystals and then making their own Light Sabers.

If you are wearing a Dark Vader Costume this year then a Sith style Light saber is important.

Although, historically, the various color spectrums possible are not strictly limited to Jedi vs Sith , Blue vs Red, movie tie ins and quick identification should convince you to aim for a traditional red light saber in order to rock the most authentic Dark Vader Halloween costume.

Darth Vader Costume Gloves and Gauntlets

Dont be cheap and reuse your old Batman gauntlets for your Darth Vader costume, Anakin Skywalker deserves a proper representation. A pair of gloves will run under $15, so if your building your costume piece by piece, be sure to get the gloves.

      Hi Pip,

      You can see that at Amazon, the items list was 39.95 as you stated. That particular seller shows only 3 in stock and with it being so near halloween they can increase the price and expect it to still sell. Scarcity and all that jazz. BUT, if you chose to clickthrough on that item, you would see that 3 other stores on amazon are carrying the item at between 50.00 and 80.00 , which isnt to bad of a mark up especially if the item is no longer being manufactured.

      Good Luck! A little research can save a ton of money!
