Halloween is here, and yes, Darth Vader typically rocks this one nicely. In fact, the Vader costume is one of our all time top favorite Halloween costumes..no doubt. Regardless of age or gender, anyone and all can dawn the cape and mask. It’s true. So last minute costume shopping (bad Hip Daddy btw)? Luckily this one is easy to find!
And speaking of Darth Vader and the whole father-son thing, did you or the kids know the following?
-The famous reveal of the father and son relationship between Vader and Luke is often misquoted as “Luke, I am your father”. The line is actually “No, I am your father”.
-Vader has his own theme song written by John Williams. Known as the Imperial March it was introduced in the Empire movie and used in Jedi and in the prequels to show when Anakin was turning to the dark side of the Force.
-James Earl Jones is famed for providing the voice for Vader however he didn’t do the famous breathing effect. This was done by Ben Burt placing a microphone inside the mouth piece of a breathing apparatus and recording it being used.
Okay, enough of the Star Wars trivia session. It’s a Hip Daddy Approved Halloween Costume, trick or treat!
