Thunderdog Studios for the Vader Project


Tristan Eaton and AZK ONE’s Thunderdog Studios custom for The Vader Project  reinterprets the Dark Lord of the Sith’s iconic helmet by grounding it to the history of earth-bound conflict.  The  Thunderdog emblazoned piece recalls WWII era gas maks, the visor style eye-pieces key into a more modern aesthetic.  It’s the face of battle – past, present and future.

The piece resonates at multiple levels – first as a seemingly customized vintage gas mask to the realization upon recognizing the iconic mouth piece  that this is in fact a riff on Darth Vader.  The helmet will debut at the next Vader Project showing.  The Vader Project is curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys.  More pics after the jump.
