After searching high & low for a cheap Star Wars costume and having no luck I decided to make a comical version using cardboard boxes.
Step 1: Materials
1 Large cardboard box - Big enough to fit yourself in
1 Small box - The head
Black paint - I used a cheap small tube of acrylic paint
Grey or silver paint
Silver colored material - I used an old silver shopping bag that I cut up
Hot glue gun
Red / Blue paper or painted cardboard - For voice box buttons
Exacto/ craft knife
Paint brush & or sponge roller
Ruler, pens ect
Step 2: The Body
The First thing I did was I took my ruler and a pen and I drew an outline to what I thought would look like Darth Vaders cape.
I came up with this simple shape as shown.
Once the front outline is drawn on the larger box the next step is to paint.
Painting a majority of the box black and inside lining silver.
Also go ahead and paint the smaller box black & set both aside to dry.
