Dannychoo wearing Darth Vader costume

We already know Dannychoo because he likes to wear his Stormtrooper armor and walk around Tokyo. Dannychoo just got an impressive Darth Vader armor!!!.

I had the otaku-honor to be the official photographer during one of the first “long distance trooping sessions” around Tokyo’s streets and trains. It was pretty difficult to take pictures of a big black thing walking by dark streets, I learned many ways to trick my camera. Had lots of fun seeing tired Japanese people with boring faces going home after work changing to a surprise/smiley face when noticing they were walking next to a Darth Vader. Look at people generally ignoring Darth Vader presence but when someone starts to take one picture everyone looses his shyness and joins the Vader photography session.

    Is it wrong of me to be waiting to see if he ever took off the helmet yelling, “I can’t breathe in this thing!!”? Great photos.

    Haha nice. I enjoyed these photos a lot. Thanks for sharing. I was wondering, whenever you guys talked during the trip, did Danny talk with the helmet on through his speakers? I bet a conversation between you too was an eyecatcher as well^^
