Dora Milaje Costume Design by Ubermonster Dora Milaje Costume Design by Ubermonster
UPDATE: I am happy to announce that this piece was nominated for a Spectrum 25 Award in concept art. Wish me luck! :)

I am so happy that Black Panther is doing well! Another great Marvel Super Hero Movie! I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to design the costumes of the Elite warriors of Wakanda! Working at Marvel Studios Visual Development Team has been a blast for 5 years now but this was the first time I got to work on some female characters and I really wanted them to be Iconic to the film and of course BADASS!! A culmination of my time as a concept artist . There are elements from some of my dark elves I designed for Project Offset.The Dora costumes were inspired by a fusion of both African and Filipino tribes. It's kinda like a Remix :) expressed though my design sensibilities.
There was a lot of inspiration from my childhood , I remember my aunts having a lot of African and Filipino artifacts decorating her home. I had so much fun with this costume hope you guys enjoyed the movie!

It was a great collaborative effort! And the Costume Designer Ruth Carter did an amazing job in bringing the costume to life on the big screen!

I haven't seen the movie yet but these costumes make me so hyped for it haha! Great use of color and patterns.
I hope to one day be able to design costumes for films as well, I'm not there yet but I keep on dreaming. Keep up the great work man, you're an inspiration to me! :heart:

Oh wow! I was completely gobsmacked by the costume designs in the movie you done such a great job. Also you managed to make them look badass and not sexualized like most other comic book movies!
