Amazing Star Wars Rebels Costumes by Fractal Studio

Celebration Cosplay - Hera and Zeb

There was no shortage of spectacular costumes at Star Wars Celebration this year, but two in particular caught my eye. I ran into Hera Syndulla and Zeb Orrelios. The characters are from the Star Wars Rebels animated series, and the costumes were so spot on, my sleep-deprived mind wondered if the characters had actually come to life. Many fans – myself included – thought they were perhaps Disney Parks’s rendition of the characters, but no. The ensembles were fan-made, crafted by Fractal Studio.

The Venezuela-based group has been around the block before. They’ve built an Iron Man suit and a Captain America helmet to promote The Avengers. They’ve made plenty of mascots for sporting events too. They use a variety of materials to create the incredible sculpts. Director of Fractal Studio, Keny León, spoke with Terra about the Hera and Zeb build and said the Star Wars Rebels suits were made from fiberglass, foam, and polyester resin:

The suits, made ​​of fiberglass, foam and polyester resin, caught the attention of fans, directors, actors and producers of the series for its quality and attention to detail. The director Dave Filoni said: “They’re amazing, amazing” and the impact of the suits was so great that the characters were invited to the stage to present the awards at the Celebration Stage (The Arena).
