Custom white LED GPU backplate to represent the floor in Shuri's Lab
Brandon Sadler inspired cable tower wrap.
Custom metal coating with custom placed LEDs, mimicking vibranium.
Deep Black 3D Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap for the NZXT H500 exterior.
An overview of Shuri's Laboratory which certain elements of the build can also be identified.
This is the central column in the laboratory which is covered in original artwork by Brandon Sadler. The H500's cable bar is wrapped in a custom adaptation of that art.
These are Shuri's gauntlets that fire energy pulses. It can be assumed that these are forged with vibranium and that is what glows within them.
T'Challa's suit is the inspiration for the carbon fiber exterior of the H500. Most similar to carbon fiber, I chose a vinyl wrap that has a very rigid texture profile.
Marvel's Black Panther was full of eye catching special effects however, Shuri's laboratory was by far the most intricate. I attempted to recreate the atmosphere of her lab within the case and express the texture of the Black Panther's suit on the exterior.
The case is wrapped in carbon fiber.
The H500's cable bar is the most distinguishing feature of the case. Since it spans the height of the case, I wanted to recreate the art expressed on the central column in the movie which was inspired by Brandon Sadler.
The GPU represents the primary resource in Wakanda, vibranium, which on screen is associated with a heavy blue aura.
The GPU backplate which doubles as a Funko platform mimics the triangular pattern and luminescence of the floor in the lab.
No extremely complicated tools outside of a power drill, heat gun, box cutter and these hands.
