Rob as Darth Vader @ Chance's Birthday Party - 2009

How to be a hit at a 7 year old’s birthday party.

Channel your inner Darth Vader for a truly memorable event.

  1. Purchase Darth Vader costume at local party shop or via the wide world of webs
  2. Don’t don the suit too quickly – I know you’ve been wanting to put it on since it arrived via UPS and you let the UPS guy know how psyched you were to wear it.
  3. Make sure the kids have had their lunch and have had plenty of caffeine and sugar.
  4. Sneak off and put on the costume making sure no one knows what you’re up to.
  5. Slink back to the party.
  6. Using your best ‘This is CNN’ James Earl Jones voice, query with authority: “Where is the Birthday Boy/Girl?”
  7. Prepare to be bum-rushed by kids high on said caffeine/sugar – protect your privates, expect to field a flurry of punches and kicks as the kids are transported into a frenzy of excitement.
  8. Remember that a little effort and childlike fun on the part of an adult can go a long way in a kids life.

    This was a great piece. I don’t think you have to limit it to child’s parties. It could be fun for all!
