Does anyone have sources or leads for the full resolution photos of the ANH costume taken in 1977 at Don Post?

I haven't been able to round up the info on the original source, but I think I was told originally that many or most of those having been made available was through GH, but again... I never did much to find out if that was true.

Thanks mate. I'm also trying to reach out to both the model and the photographer, but perhaps GH will chime in.

You mean the guy in the costume? That's Kermit Eller. If you meant something else... then I'm not sure.

Correct. I just assumed his name was synonymous with those photos.

"The Complete Vader" by Windham and Vilmur (2009) starting on page 28 shows Kermit Eller in front of Don Post studios in 9 pictures showing how to put on the costume. But they are only about 3"x2" each and may not be the resolution you're looking for. There is a high resolution photo in the foldout on that page which is narrow but full page height. Additional photos show him sitting in the backseat of a limo I presume and another signing his (Vader's) autograph.

Thanks. I forgot about the photos showing up in that book. Yes, I am looking for the original high resolution scans of the full photo frames that occasionally get cropped for reference on various forums.
