Star Wars Celebration Japan: The Vader Project

One of the most popular post in this blog is the Star Wars Celebration Japan, written over 2 years ago.  One of my earliest blog post, it was short and contained only a few pictures so this is a new blog post to expand on the event.

One of the highlights of this event was The Vader Project, a reimagining of the iconic Darth Vader helmet by some of the industry’s hottest pop and underground artists.  Below is a collection of the pictures which I took during the event.

Each artist was given a 1:1 scale authentic prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in the Star Wars films. Each helmet served as a blank canvas for each artist to paint, design, mash up, and customize.  Which one is your favorite?
