Furiosa was a labor of love for me. I didn't decide to do this cosplay till after I saw the film, then it was a mad dash to get all the materials and finish the cosplay before my next con which was 14 days later. But Furiosa was absolutely amazing, and so worth all the stress I was about to put myself through. The costume (save for the arm/shoulder) is pretty straight forward and so I was confident I could finish it in that time span.
Getting enough reference images for the arm was the hardest part for sure. I actually ended up bringing a sketchbook to my second viewing of Fury Road just to make notes and drawings of what I still needed to get/add to the arm piece. Originally I wanted to fake the center piece and actually built a part for it. I eventually ended up scrapping it though as it added a lot of weight and discomfort to wearing the arm.
After a lot of back and forth trying to figure out the arm I ended up actually very pleased with the result!! I'm very excited to wear this costume many more times!!
OH! And there was one other thing I still needed to do to in order to really get into this cosplay....
In the end all the stress, work, and shaving my head were totally worth it. Cause Furiosa is amazing!!! Getting to cosplay her and see how many people adore her has easily made this one of my favourite cosplays so far!!!
