Here are some quick facts about Darth Vader and his costume from IMDB.

1 The meditation chamber of Darth Vader is said to be hyperbaric with air that has more than one atmospheric pressure. It allows him to remove his helmet and breathe normally for limited periods of time.

2 The Darth Vader mask for Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2006) was built from the scratch using computerized lathe to create the mask’s mold. For the first time in entire Star Wars franchise history, the masks were truly symmetrical.

3 George Lucas deliberately had the top part of the suit heavy so that Hayden Christensen would not appear “too accustomed” to it in the movie.

4 In the scene in Episode III, where the inside of the mask is shown when it is lowered over Anakin’s face. The triangular silver item between the eyes inside the mask is an actuator (read-write mechanism) from a computer hard-disk drive.
