Someone Has Made Captain Phasma’s Helmet from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens featured a glimpse at a rad-looking chrome trooper. The costume caught the attention of fandom, and the character was officially revealed in a photo on May 4. The character is a First Order (the new version of the Empire) officer called Captain Phasma. She’s played by Gwendoline Christie. The reveal came with a single high-res photo. Ambitious Star Wars fans don’t need much reference material to get to work though.

Jim McCrea and Jacob Morin of Stony Props posted an image of a chrome trooper helmet in progress on April 29. That’s only a couple weeks after the release of the teaser that gave us a peek at the character and a few days before the high-res photo was released. They finished the helmet in less than a month after first seeing Captain Phasma. That’s rather incredible. McCrea sculpted the helmet and Morin modeled it. The helmet was painted glossy black and then chrome painted over the top.
