Melissa Ng, a.k.a. Lumecluster, is no stranger to designing intricate and fantastical armor. Evidence of her creativity can be seen in her Dreamer Regalia armor and in this new Sovereign Armor. Ng wanted to make practical fantasy armor for a woman inspired by medieval looks. She goes into detail about the entire process from modeling, to 3D printing, to finishing, to lighting on her website (it’s currently migrating but should be available soon!). You can get a full view of the armor in multiple stages in the above video. I’m smitten with the flexibility of the finished product and the way the yellow LEDs shine through the filigree cut-outs. It’s no surprise that crafting this piece of art took over 500 hours.
