This Star Wars Praetorian Guard Costume Will Keep Snoke Safe
A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will premiere later today, but you don’t have to wait until then to get a glimpse of a Praetorian Guard. The guards serve as Supreme Leader Snoke’s personal bodyguard. Maker Jim Tripon crafted a Samurai version of their scarlet armor and shared it with the Replica Prop Forum. He says:
Armor is painted flexible fiberglass. Can be rigged up out of the box in 1 night. Will probably cast this in red. We’re experimenting with gelcoat however it looks like a much more expensive and labor intensive undertaking.
Undersuit is made of textured synthetic leather with jersey and mesh used in the hidden sections. Not perfect but i think will pass for basic. Skirt is fleece/wool.
