Nova – Heroes of the Storm

I originally wanted to finish Master Nova from Heroes of the Storm for BlizzCon 2015. The event would be perfect for an completely light up costume and would just look amazing on the dark convention floor. However, I dropped her when I noticed that I couldn’t build her ponytail exactly like in the reference. I also had never worked with EVA foam before and was in way over my head and on a deadly tight time schedule. So, this was a challenging project on so many levels. I also noticed, that I was just not ready to finish the costume just yet. 

Then, two years later I finally got back to Master Nova as part of my Animated LED Book. It took me a while to improve my skills and learn new techniques and it felt great to find a solution at the end. Master Nova until this point my largest LED project and also the first time we’ve used a laser cutter and 3D printer. The result looked amazing, even though it wasn’t 100% close to the original reference. I was still incredible proud and also felt in love with EVA foam armor back then.
