ANH & ESB DARTH VADER - finally complete!!

    ANH & ESB DARTH VADER - finally complete!!

    I can finally say that my quest to create the most accurate Darth Vader displays has come to an end.

    I hope you like him. I had a very difficult time deciding on the poses as well as how to light him.

    I'm interested in hearing which pics you like the best.

    Gino, what can be said except you have completely nailed the look and feel of both the ANH and ESB Vaders, the finishes on the parts, the mannequins and the shots themselves really bring the whole thing to life, very very well done indeed

    Edit - Oh I love the 'I find your lack of faith disturbing' pose for the ANH and the 'Join me and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son' for the ESB

    Excellent job Gino. I'm not a Vader detail expert, but looking at those, I can clearly get the ANH and ESB "feel" (for lack of a better word) for each costume.

    Nice!! I like the "hands on the hips"-pose on the ANH Vader. Reminds me of a shot from the movies, just canīt remember which. Backround is a bit dark though, at least for photography, but probably awesome as a display.

    And the "I am your father"-pose on the ESB is outstanding!

    I am not much of a Vader fan, but that is unbelievably awesome! Absolutely gorgeous!

    Thanks!
    But they would look SO much better if you were taking the pics.
    Maybe at C5.

    Holy ****! My whole life I've been a huge Vader fan, and these instill me with the same sense of awe I felt seeing (one of) the original Vader suit(s) as a child. Well done!

    Re: ANH & ESB DARTH VADER - finally complete!!

    All three stand 6'9" from boots to top of dome.

    Re: ANH & ESB DARTH VADER - finally complete!!

    Did you do any work to the mannequin to get it that tall? or does the dome add all those extra inches?

    Re: ANH & ESB DARTH VADER - finally complete!!

    It had to be made taller by cutting up the fiberglass parts and re-proportioning everything.


    Here's a new one with one of my pics photoshopped onto a background.
    Going for that production photo look.
