Tip of the Week

When Anakin became Darth Vader, he went over to the Dark Side of apparel. You may need the Force to be with you when wearing your Darth Vader costume. The plastic can become uncomfortable if worn wrong, making you want to challenge anyone wearing an Anakin Skywalker costume to a duel of light sabers. But before you wield your light saber against your mask or people wearing other Star Wars costumes, follow a few common sense tips. * For the adult and the child costume, make sure there is plenty of breathing room inside the mask. There is a reason why Vader breathed that mechanical way! You can cut holes in the nose to allow better ventilation. * As always, make sure you or your child can see out of the eyeholes. * Unlike Vader, you can take off your helmet and reveal your identity. Do so regularly. * When you do take off your mask, drink plenty of fluids so you don't feel dried out. Insist that your child also drink lots of fluids. * Keep your skin moist by putting moisturizer or baby oil on your face and your child's face. Use a light layer so the mask doesn't stick to your face.
