    Darth Vader Height

    Hi all. First off I'm 5'11". I'm wondering what is the proper size you should be to wear a Vader costume. Is there a proper way to add height without the boots looking like Frankenstein shoes?! Are there any short Vaders out there like me? Thanks for the input as always

    -Brad

    Re: Darth Vader Height

    Hello Brad, according to wookiepedia:

    "
    1.35 meters (child)
    1.85 meters (adult
    2.02 meters in his armored suit "

    ( http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Anakin_Skywalker )

    My boots have a 1" sole that does not make the look like frankenstein boots, plus they have enough room inside for inner soles, I have another 2.5" in them on inner soles

    Related to Vader sizes/approval there is also "kiss boots" tread on the sith lord forum, check it out:

    Hope this helps

    Best regards

    David Prowse was appearantly 6'6" and with armor and everything on somewhere close to 7 foot i thought.

    obviously he has shrunk now due to his age and health problems.

    Re: Darth Vader Height

    Tem is like 5'7" or 5'8", but his clones are supposed to be taller and closer to 6'. Because Jango didn't have the best of upbringings vs the clones, who had the best diets and excercise and all that. I think this is so that the clones would match the 1.8m height for stormtroopers?

    Edit: by "his clones" I meant Jango's clones, obviously :P
