Darth Fiddler by Kaatman Darth Fiddler by Kaatman
A busker commonly seen on the waterfront in Victoria, BC. Recently he was attacked, and his jet-black fiddle was smashed. The community rallied and bought him this new fiddle. It's really good to see him back.

Photographer: Kaatman

LOL! That's so cool!!

And that's so sad that he was attacked! No fair! I'm glad he got a new one though. :) As a 'fiddler' myself, that's pretty darn cool.

Well, the full suit would be murderous on a sunny day, he probably wouldn't be able to play for long and wouldn't make much.

Maybe. I can't blame him for changing the armor, really. The full deal would be murderous on a hot day. I'm not sure how he does it right now, honestly.

They don't know. Despite the fact that it was in the major tourist area of town and there are generally hundreds of people around, apparently there where no witnesses.
