Just in Time for Halloween: Original Darth Vader Costume Up for Sale
If you are a big "Star Wars" fan and if you are looking for a great costume for Halloween to impress your other geeky friends, then get ready for this. You can now have in your possession one of the most iconic costumes in film history as auction house, Christie's will be putting the original Darth Vader costume (from 1980's "The Empire Strikes Back") up for bidding next month in London. The sale would be part of the "Popular Culture: Arts and Entertainment" auction on November 25th. Here's the catch: the costume is expected to fetch between $250K-$365K. Some serious Galactic-size money for sure. So, unless you have that kind of cash just lying around collecting dust, I suggest you look elsewhere.
The Force can be with you......but for a price.
