Anakin skywalker

The Chosen One. Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

Star Wars revolves around the story of Anakin Skywalker. Skywalker was a Jedi Knight of the Galactic Republic, a hero of the Clone Wars and the Chosen One of the Jedi Order. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, he was known as Darth Vader.

Anakin was one of the first sewing projects I ever took on. The Jedi robes were made up of several layers of brown fabrics, which made color matching a bit of a challenge. What made this costume special is the weathering details. I chose to create the post-Mustafar lightsaber duel look for Anakin.

Mustafar is a volcanic planet, and while fighting outside, Anakin was hit with burning debris and since he had turned to the dark side, his eyes were a haunting yellow/red. Once I had assembled the costume, I used a lighter and acrylic paint to burn and distress the robes to match the movie. To complete the look, I used special effect makeup and contacts to create the sunken yellow eyes and facial scar.
