Actress and gamer Marisha Ray recently modeled an incredible full set of medieval 3D printed women’s sovereign armor that was created by New York artist Melissa Ng of Lumecluster. We previously wrote about Melissa and her beautiful 3D printed Dreamer Regalia armor modeled by Felicia Day.
I made this in honor of the creatives out there who know that, even though it’s empowering to be the ruler of your dreams and creations, you also know how incredibly lonely the journey can often be.
The intricate patterns are meant to look like rolling waves while the fluting is meant to look like ripples. I wanted the glowing LEDs to give the impression of magical and ethereal energy and symbolize the light of the creative.
And the light of the creative is a beautiful and painful thing. Beautiful because it’s what inspires you to create. Painful because it’s always at risk of being snuffed out. When an idea is forming, that creative fire feels unstoppable. But, as we all know, nothing worthwhile ever comes without pain and effort.
