PROJECT: Kindred - League of Legends
Kindred, from top to bottom, was entirely new concepts for us. To begin, the visor was modeled in Blender, 3D printed, and vacuum formed in PETG before being tinted dark.
The same 3D model was then modified to create a perfect fitting, skeleton structure which housed the mask's LED strips. The LED housing was printed in black PETG, and lined with aluminum tape to help reflect light. Thin LED strips were adhered around the edge of each facial feature, diffused by polyethylene foam.
The head base began as an oil clay maquette, patterned, and blown up into full scale to be cut out of XLPE foam. Bunches of black wefts were then carefully adhered and styled to replicate Kindred's large hair shapes.
Faux fur makes up for the neck, as well as the ears. Neodymium magnets sewn into the back of the neck, and lower portion of the head base allow easy donning and removal.
