When it comes to video games, few things are more aggravating than encountering a troll. They go out of their way to ruin your gameplay experience, to say mean things about your mother over Xbox Live, and to generally rain on your parade. If we have to deal with trolls, we much prefer they hail from Azeroth like the blue-skinned warriors of World of Warcraft. Sure, it’s annoying that they regenerate their health all the time, but we can’t get enough of their voodoo rituals and pseudo-Jamaican aesthetics. And that’s why we’re particularly excited to see cosplayer extraordinaire Jessica LG transform herself into a troll on today’s episode of Just Cosplay.
Today’s episode is extra special because we’re taking you from Azeroth to a galaxy far, far away for one of the single coolest giveaways I’ve ever seen on this site. The fine folks at ANOVOS manufacture some of the most painstakingly detailed replica costumes in the world. You might remember their Admiral Kirk (Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan) costume as the apple of Matt Mira’s eye during San Diego Comic-Con. Now, ANOVOS have unveiled their latest offering and you don’t need to be attuned to the Force to know that you need it in your life: Darth Vader. Modeled after the villain’s iconic look from The Empire Strikes Back, the fully wearable costume is a comfortable, exceedingly accurate way to become just like Darth Vader without having most of your face melted off by lava, which is a win in our book.
See? Look at how rad that is! Available for pre-order now for a cool $2,062.00, Darth Vader’s slick threads can be yours in May 2015. Or you can enter our special giveaway and win one of your very own! Entering to win is simple: share this post on Twitter using the hashtag #JustCosplay. That’s it! You can craft a tweet of your own or just click here. Easier than escaping a Sarlacc pit, for sure. Be sure to enter by midnight on October 3 or else this costume will make like Alderaan and disappear (but with way less collateral damage). While we know it’s in good taste to let the Wookiee win, we must stress that one’s level of body hair has absolutely no bearing on their eligibility to win.
