Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever features 3D Printed Costumes by Ruth E Carter, in collaboration with Austrian Designer Julia Koerner
Following the international success of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” the two designers collaborated again on 3D printed costumes for Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which debuts in cinemas on November 11, 2022.
Julia Koerner is a world-renowned expert in 3D Printing, Professor at UCLA, and founder of JK3D. Ruth Carter worked with Koerner on Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” collaborating on a 3D-Printed crown and shoulder mantle for Queen Ramonda, portrayed by Angela Bassett. Carter received an Academy Award for Costume Design for bringing Afrofuturism to the big screen.
For “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Carter and Koerner developed a new 3D-printed crown, and neck-piece for Queen Ramonda. The film also features the crown from their first collaboration. The designs were developed using advanced digital design technologies and feature a highly complex and intricate design that can only be made with 3D-printing and was manufactured using selective laser sintering.
