Skeletor is a powerful and dangerous villain who resides in Eternia, determined to unlock the secrets of Castle Greyskull and become the Master of the Universe. This is a series I am not hugely familiar with myself, however I was more than happy to work on this project as soon as I was asked!
This project was the brainchild of Blake Morrow and Rob Archer, and I was brought onboard by the wonderful Karli Woods. As soon as I was asked if I wanted to make this costume for Rob, who is 6'6" and nearly 300lbs of solid muscle, I knew this project was going to be epic. There are very few people I can think of you are better built to portray a character like Skeletor than Rob. After a couple meetings with everyone I got started on the costume. I decided to do Apoxie Sculpt Armour with leather look detailing for the pauldrons and strapping. When it came to shoot day I was so excited, as soon as Aaron Knox and his amazing assistant Melanie Rivest-Knox started painting Rob I knew it was all going to come together amazingly!
The photos, including all the editing were done by the amazing Blake Morrow
Model is actor Rob Archer
Karli Woods helped organize this project and shot some wonderful behind the scenes videos
And of course the costume was made entirely by me
A making of blog detailing all the processes I used for this project will be coming soon!
