Perhaps it is just me but it seems like Darth Vader is some of the most overdone cosplay out there these days. I understand why everybody wants to dress up like Darth Vader and I have even done it myself but it feels like it has become so common that it isn’t special anymore. However, there are rare exceptions like the one below where a great deal of originality went into the Darth Vader cosplay.
A cosplayer going by the name May B. created this really cool Victorian style Darth Vader cosplay. Apparently the style was inspired by Victorian mourning gowns. I think the combination of Darth Vader and a Victorian mourning gown actually goes together quite well although my favorite part is definitely the mask.
However, I am not sure if this could be considered a steampunk Darth Vader. I know the steampunk style is a Victorian style but I’m not sure if this qualifies so if anybody knows or has an opinion, please leave it in the comments below!
