The Vader Project

IMG_0153_600It was hard for me not to title this article “Oh my fucking god this is SO awesome!”, but I didn’t because I’m a professional. So I’ll just say that someone has a total nerd boner for this right now.  The project enlists the talents of an elite group of contemporary and urban artists  chosen to customize a 1:1 scale replica of the dark lords helmet. There are 100 participating artists for the 2010 lineup.  This  marks the forth year and final chapter of the exhibition . This traveling curiosity is produced by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys. Once the world  tour concludes all the helmets will be up for auction in Philadelphia on July 10th. Want to get your very own one of a kind Vader helmet, but you’re not in Philly? No worries, you’ll be able to bid on these beauties at Freeman’s Auctions . If you promise to love us forever, you can get a preview of the catalog after the jump..
