So at some point during our family hike this weekend, the subject of Halloween came up. No, no, not the crappy metal band, but the actual holiday. You know, the one where you get dressed up as some sort of creature/monster/celebrity and binge on candy?
Well, K-dog is getting a Jango Fett costume from Target for his birthday from one of his grandmothers. If you aren’t going to click the link, I’ll just tell you that Jango is the blueprint for all the Clones that were created to battle the Sepratist Uprising. The sole condition of this blueprinting (besides the pay – which was considerable), is that he had an unaltered clone to raise as his own son. That kid’s name was Boba.
OK, ringing any bells now? Boba Fett? Only the most baddass bounty hunter this side of the Rishi Maze.
I’ve always been a bit partial to the dark side.
Anyways, I decided that I wanted a Darth Vader costume. So when we got home, I hit the internets to try and find my halloween costume. While fully expecting to find some cheap-assed-crappy-plastic-held-to-your-face-with-an-elastic-string kind of affair, I found this:
OH SNAP! And it come with all of this!
Internets, I love you!
The biggest problem (besides my total geekiness -of course) is the expense. The thing costs as much as an AIR9 frame! But it’s a Darth frickin’ Vader costume! I’m almost justifying it in my head right now. I have suspension forks that cost that much. I literally could not have a suspension fork on one of my bikes, AND have a Darth Vader costume. And to be truthful, I’d probably get a lot more use out of a Darth Vader costume than I would a fork mounted on one of my bikes that I rarely ride.
Besides being a Dark Lord of the Sith, Vader is completely awesome. He’s so powerful, he doesn’t even need a lightsaber to get his point across.
That Lord Vader… only he could be so bold…
But in the end, we all find out what a big softy he actually is. Everyone loves the redemption story. Except Mandy. Which is why I would have a tough time explaining a Vader suit.
Which is why I am accepting donations!
