New costumes inspired by The Force Awakens keep coming onto my radar. Photographer Jason Laboy pointed me towards images from a recent photo shoot he did featuring Kylo Ren and Rey, cosplayed by FenixEmber Cosplay and Nixie Sweet. He captured the images that re-create the duel between the two Force-users on Starkiller Base in Central Park. Laboy says the cold weather wasn’t intolerable and that 90% of what you seen in the shots was captured in camera. He manipulated the images to include the lightsaber and snow. There was still snow on the ground in the park — quite a bit of it — but Laboy’s finishing work made the images more cinematic. He has behind the scenes pics from the shoot on his website.
