Bringing a little light to the dark side, HalloweenCostumes.com is auctioning Darth Vader helmets customized by artists across the US, including tattooists Megan Hoogland, Makeba Ische & Karl Schneider of Cactus Tattoo, and Staci Queen & John Dickinson of Mecca Tattoo. Proceeds from the auction benefit Midwest Art Catalyst and the Miracle League of North Mankato.

The bidding started about an hour ago. Here's how it's going down: "Individuals can enter a dollar amount to place a bid on a helmet. The placement of a bid will start a 24 hour timer. If another bidder places a higher bid within that 24 hours, the timer will start again and the new high bidder will have 24 hours to be outbid. This process will continue until a high bidder maintains his or her position for all 24 hours." So I guess, essentially, it could go on forever like Star Wars prequels. 

Have fun bidding!
