Darth Vader Ain't Cheap!

The average cost of a Darth Vader costume is $3000-$5000. Crazy, isn't it?

To further add to the cost, today I picked up Vader's cape and tunic from the dry cleaners. The total cost of cleaning the two items came to $20.50. Ouch.

Being a plain old stormtrooper is much cheaper. The costume is simpler (although still not inexpensive), and everything that isn't plastic can be tossed into the washing machine. No dry cleaning necessary. I think I much prefer that!

I just wanted to let you know that I find this whole Darth Vader's drycleaning saga quietly absolutely hilarious. The thought of Darth Vader complaining to his wife about needing to get his suit drycleaned brings a bit of a smile to me in this tough time (see blog for details)
