found: a star wars inspiration.

these steampunk-esque masks look something familiar… Could this be where George Lucas might have looked for a little inspiration for Darth Vadar and C-3PO’s costumes? Having German and Parisian roots, these smoke helmets were worn by firefighters in the 1800s. Hmm… Seems pretty likely or else too uncanny.
