Luke Daley was taken with Kylo Ren from the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He’s been obsessed with the character and used photos from the costume exhibit at Celebration Anaheim to plan an exact replica of the outfit. He poured some of his research time into making the helmet. He spent five weeks modeling the Kylo Ren mask. Daley says:
it was absolutely the biggest design undertaking in the 3d world i’ve made to-date, i designed it entirely in Solidworks and it took some 100+ hours to refine the design before i was happy to proceed. i went through 4 physical prototypes of domes before i settled on one that was comfortable and looked good, true it’s not perfect but i’m always aiming to improve, the project gave me alot of new insight into how i’d go about doing it next time round
He’s made the files available on My Mini Factory so you have time to download and print your mask before December 18th.
