Emperor Skywalker / Darth Vader
Original request from Thespius http://www.swagonline.com/node/5120 - "I need a depiction of Anakin/Vader, had he not been burned on Mustafar. He's the Emperor (inspired by the alternate ending in ROTS video game) so I'd like something formal, but not like Palpatine's dress robe. Also I was thinking shorter kept hair and wisp of grey. That's all I have, other than that him wearing a version of his Vader armor would be nice, and I'd like his lightsaber in view."
I love alternate visions, and this dovetailed with my own ideas about 'what if' in SW. This version shows Anakin wearing an Imperial interpretation of the various Sith influences around him. It has many elements of all the Sith costumes we've seen in the movies.
