Short biography
Marc Opletal (born on 14th of March 1979) was confronted with the Star Wars universe very early in his childhood. When his parents saw the first Star Wars movie in the cinema in 1977, they shared their enthusiasm with him by buying and gifting the toys from the movie. Of course he did not know the connections of the characters at that time and also the names were partly unknown.
However, these figures quickly captivated him and became his favorite toys. Years later, after watching the first films in the public youth house, the passion rekindled. The old toys were taken out of the cellar and he replayed the movie scenes with friends. Nowadays, the old toys have been passed on to his children, and the next generation is growing with enthusiasm for the galaxy far far away. Since the character Darth Vader has always been his favorite character, he grew in his desire for a suitable costume of the greatest villains in film history. But over the years, he can´t find a suitable costume on the market and the wallet did not open up much opportunity, he built his first Darth Vader costume on his own. He took a step into a new world, because the passion for cosplay was sparked. The first performances did not only delight the guests but also him personally. Finally, the construction of an authentic movie accurate costume followed. The parts he received from all over the world, be it from Norway, North America, South America, Europe or even from Asia.
In 2016, he was inducted into 501st Legion, the world's largest Star Wars costume club, which is also the preferred partner of Disney and Lucasfilm. Since that moment and many appearances later, he decided to share his passion and skill in professional prop construction. In late 2016, he founded the company OPLE Props and today delivers costume parts and prop replicas all over the world. Not only Star Wars costume wearers love the products, more and more cosplayers are getting customers from him.
