"Darth Maul "



Life size half statue of Ray Park as Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Once a general look was decided upon, I collected photos and screen captures of Ray making the expression we wanted – but without makeup. Several weeks were then spent modelling water based clay over a steel and aluminium armature, firstly concentrating on his head, and then his whole upper torso to get the correct posture along with expression.

Fibreglass moulds were then taken from this, and castings taken from them to create a fibreglass body and arms. Platinum silicone rubber was then injected into the head mould, the resulting head casting deseamed and painted in Maul’s distinctive tattoo pattern. Acrylic eyes were then hand painted and cast, along with teeth, before eye lashes finished the head off.

The costume was then made from various cotton fabrics and silk for the main part, and leather for the belts. A bought machined lightsabre and belt clip finish the display off.
