It's a tough life; one minute you're en route to intergalactic domination on behalf of Lord Zedd, the next your nemesis Zordon has blasted a meteor in your direction, causing you to fall into a coma and your body to wither away at the bottom of an ocean.
But that's just another day in the trials and tribulations of #PowerRangers foe #RitaRepulsa, whose revived corpse has risen once again to complete another mission — stealing gold to rejuvenate her powers and locate the Zeo Crystal once and for all. Watch her in action — portrayed by Elizabeth Banks — in the Power Rangers trailer below:
However, though Ms. Repulsa is a menace to all things Power Rangers, I think you'll agree that she, like most movie villains, is not only one of the franchise's coolest characters but she also has one of the sickest costumes. And that is why Movie Pilot's #Becoming picked this mean, green, galaxy machine to pay homage to — with a little help from #cosplay queen Jessica, a.k.a. Maid of Might.
Take a peek at the before and after shot:

Looks pretty incredible, right?!
You could say that California-based Cosplayer Jessica was born into her trade; she grew up in a comic book store, meaning that her favorite superheroes have literally surrounded her since birth. Making her own costumes and bringing her favorite characters to life is one of her favorite pastimes, so she was more than up for this challenge.
Want to have a go at this costume yourself? Check out the time-lapse video below that shows you exactly how the Movie Pilot magic team morphed Maid of Might into bad gal Rita:
