How much work goes into making a mask or helmet for Marvel and DC movies? Norman Chan of tested had a chance to interview Jose Fernandez who has been designing these costumes for years.

I love that so many of these masks and helmets are being designed digitally, printed on a 3D printer, and then cleaned up and detailed. I would love it if Marvel would license or sell some of the .STL files for fans to print their own. Granted, the 3D printing service Jose is using is nowhere near consumer friendly when it comes to pricing, but even an Ultimaker could produce a quality product that hobbyists could finish to something close to prop quality.  I’d pay $75 for one of these files.
