UNDER CONSTRUCTION: I am in the process of reorganizing this site; check back soon! The 'Costumes and Make-Up' page is done!
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
This is a poster I put together for a movie of Masters of the Universe. Above HE-MAN is SKELETOR of course; over his other shoulder is KING RANDOR, who is also at the bottom left, and TRAPJAW, EVIL LYN, and TRI-KLOPS are bottom right. All of the characters are played by me (except LYN) wearing costumes I built myself. For individual shots of them check my Costumes and Make-Up page.
The background is from two matte paintings from the Mike Young Productions 2002 series, Masters of the Universe. I bought the Power Sword replica online, but I made everything else.
I took the SKELETOR photo of myself in the mask and hood that I made for Halloween a while back. By the way, when I was at Power Con, I met Alan Oppenheimer (voice of SKELETOR in the original cartoon), and he autographed this mask! I'll try to remember to post pictures soon.
HE-MAN was the second Masters of the Universe costume I made. I kind of fried my hair, but the rest looks pretty good. I'd still like to redo this one sometime, now that I'm better at making costumes.
TRI-KLOPS is the first costume I was commissioned to make, and now one of my most requested. I wore the costume for the photoshoot, so that's me again. You wouldn't believe what that costume is made of.
EVIL LYN (also one of my most requested costumes) was my second commission. I made the purple armor out of armor-grade leather and nickel-silver for the metal parts.
I threw together this TRAPJAW costume in two weeks, so you can see that it's not finished, but good enough for this poster. When I get the chance this is definitely one I want to finish.
KING RANDOR is a costume I built with the intention of boosting my business, and it worked. People freak out when they see that the armor is actually real brass. I'm getting a lot of orders now since I appeared at Power Con wearing this.
Photoshop is great, but I also work in more traditional mediums. Check out my Custom Toys and Artwork page for other examples.
