Kylo Ren and Rey Lightsaber Battle Shows Photo Editing Magic

rey and ren

If you cosplay a Jedi or Sith, you’re probably going to have a lightsaber that goes with your costume and you’ll probably want to have that lightsaber glow properly. Laura Sanchez, also known as Nebulaluben, recently participated in a photo shoot as Rey with another cosplayer portraying Kylo Ren. They reenacted moments of the duo’s lightsaber battle on Starkiller Base. Laura applied some editing Force to the picture to make the lightsabers pop and recorded a tutorial. The how-to is in Spanish, but if you don’t speak that language, you can still follow the visuals:

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @

  1. Amazing image. Excellent edition. It looks as taken from a movie.
    She explains the whole process with wit and charm, so that most people can understand it.
    I think Nebulaluben could also explain it in English.
