Darth Vader Cyberman Mash-Up Costume

Two villains are better than one, right? That’s the opinion of Terranous. The artist, cosplayer, and builder has created a few armored costumes in his time and impresses me because he goes the extra mile when it comes to including details. He’s built a Cyberman head, a Daft Punk helmet, and he’s just finished a Darth Vader Cyberman costume. Darth Cyber combines parts from Darth Vader from Star Wars, and a Cyberman from Doctor Who.

Terranous started with a Cyberman pattern drafted by Mal’s Fantasy Factory and replaced some parts with Vader pieces (like Vader’s chest box). He tested the fit of the armor on cardboard first, made some adjustments, and then cut everything out of EVA foam mats. It only took two sheets of foam. Smaller bits of the armor – like all the joints on the hand – were cut from thinner craft foam, glued together, and attached to a glove. Given the tedious nature of each step, it’s no surprise that Terranous started this costume last July.
