I Am Mother - Droid Concept Design

Here’s a real THICC lady. This is my interpretation of the ‘Mother’ version. Way beefier to accommodate Luke Hawker, who performed in the physical suit. I was provided with a 3D scan of him to build the suit around. The wire patterns in the thermal padding was really fun to make! The belly section, neck area etc. have different structures to hide the actor underneath. Ultimately WETA decided to stick more closely to Christian Pearces design for the practical suit. In the end I think it’s cool because this way there is a more pronounced difference between the Mother and Military droids for better visual contrast. Very proud of everyone involved and very happy with the amazing response so far!!!! What do you think?
