    Artists: Tom Woodruff Jr

    TDH: Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

    Woodruff: I have been a leading professional Special Character Creator for film and television for 30 years. My areas of expertise combine design, building, and on-screen performance of aliens, creatures, and animal characters. Together with Alec Gillis at ADI, I share in multiple awards and nominations including the Academy Award.

    TDH: Tell us a little about the process of creating this helmet.

    Woodruff: My design was just a riff off of joking-up the name of the character. Once I hit on the idea of the Death Star as a ball gag and an bikini-Leia in the monitor, the rest fell into place. The trick was making it work on a PG level without resorting to anything graphic.
