It’s really hard revolutionizing an entire galaxy, folks. Day in and day out, the pressure to perform is daunting for even the strongest of leaders. Naturally, after years of bringing order to the unruly chaos of the Republic, Darth Vader deserves a little bit of respite. But what does a Darth Vader need for a welcomed vacation away from the Death Star?


The simple answer? An aesthetic change–Darth Vader cosplay meets cottagecore! How better to counter the stifling grey and black of space than with lush green fields and a comforting cup of tea? Cottagecore is all the rage this season, with influencers all over the world posting images of frothy gowns, lovely pastels, and gorgeous garden landscapes. Check out this article from Architectural Digest for more about the cottagecore craze.


Grab those seasonal allergy filters, pack those light summer-weight cloaks, and let’s get ready for some epically adorable cottagecore Darth Vader cosplay images.

The best way to view the following images is to imagine them as ads for positivity in the Star Wars galaxy. Imagine Darth Vader trying to get out of the office in an attempt to think positively and build better momentum. Instead of being threatening, he’s genuinely trying to positively influence people. Give it a try, and enjoy the laughs.


“Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, Director!”


“I have you now!”


“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”



“The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.”


“Your destiny lies with me, Skywalker! Obi-Wan knew this to be true.”


“If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will!”
