Jesus, Darth Vader and thunder god Thor are all depicted in this fashion-forward image series by photographer Luis Carlos Aguayo. Luis captures models Gerez Pol and Garcia Fernando in this imaginative editorial that pays homage to some of pop culture's most iconic comic book, film and mythical characters.

Whether sporting a crown of thorns, a winged helmet or a classic Darth Vader mask, models pull off pink props that are a departure from characters' classic looks. These masks are paired with one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that are courtesy of designer Stefano De Lellis.

Each of these masks is part of photographer Luis Carlos Aguayo's private collection and includes vibrantly hued pieces that are both decorative and unique. The accessories are a fresh and conceptual translation of iconic pop culture imagery. Stats for Feminized Sci-Fi Icon Editorials Trending: This Quarter & Buzzing
