How to dress like Darth Vader for less than $800

We've always had a sneaking admiration for the Empire. Yes, it may be a dictatorship, but its abolition of slavery is a plus and, frankly, it has the all best kit.

Darth Vader Lives!

And who better to exemplify that than the man voted Mister Personification of Evil for the last 28 years running, the original Man in Black, Darth 'Annie' Vader himself.

And how better to show our appreciation than forking out $799 ($1246 retail) to dress up just like our favourite anti-hero?

Now we all can, courtesy of BuyCostumes.com's Star Wars Darth Vader Collector's (Supreme) Edition Costume, complete with cloak, greaves, gloves, helmet, padded pants and life-support system. Alas, a lightsabre is not included, nor the ability to chuck scenery at people by the power of thought alone.

If Darth's not your daddy, the site also offers a wonderfully hairy Chewbacca outfit - a rug anyone can dive into - along with a full Clone Trooper kit, Leia, Padme Amidala, Obi-Wan, Emperor Palpatine and even a Yoda - no, you don't have to be under a metre in height and lack a basic command of English syntax to wear it

Alas, there's no Death Squad Commander, Stormtrooper or Imperial Officer rig as yet, so our bid to supress democracy and reorganise our nation upon Imperial lines will have to wait a while just yet... ®
