Helmet

This is the most important aspect of the suit and probably the most iconic as well. This part of his suit allows Vader to breathe, but it goes beyond that. The helmet is made up of three parts; a protective neck gaiter, the primary mask, and the outer shell. All three parts work together to help Vader in different ways. The gaiter helps support his neck, the. mask is where his respiratory system is and the lenses aid his vision. Finally the shell of the helmet locks together (in the famous noise) to secure everything in place.

Body of Suit

The rest of the suit had the overall function of protection and a shield for his body. The different parts were designed to help protected his damaged body from receiving anymore damage. The belt was used to help monitor and regulate Vader’s vital systems to help keep him alive.

Black Cloak

And finally, the menacing black cloak that adds to the Sith Lords style. This adds to the fearful look that is Darth Vader.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
