So Shiny and Chrome!

For Tracon Sunday my other half and me donned on Mad Max: Fury Road inspired costumes. I can't remember the last time I've gone to see a movie more than one time, but Fury Road had me hooked and I just had to see it in both 2D and 3D. I just love the visual style and how open and unexplained the world is left, there's lots of room for my imagination!

So this is what we came up with no time to make any new props or clothes, with just what we had in our closets. WITNESS ME!


I put this outfit together by grabbing a super cheap Primark top, my other halfs old scarf, Lip Service leggings, Artifice shrug, New Rock boots, a glove, a pair of goggles and a knee pad from my other half's stash and let him choose a couple of airsoft guns to go with the rest of the outfit. 




The make-up is Sugarpill Bulletproof and a camouflage wax paint stick my other half had. The stick is perfect for adding smudges on skin, but too oily for my face.



This is us!


Serious business ;D
I really like how the outfits came out! They are a bit generic, not belonging to any faction shown in the movie, but that's kind of nice. Maybe later I could make something resembling Furiosa's belt or a respirator, to tie the outfits better to the world. But for just using what we had, these are a great achievement!

    1. Kiitos! Oli kyllä kivaa! Mulle olis vaan pitänyt olla aseenkäsittelykoulutus kun en oikein osannut pidellä pyssykkää oikein ja se oli yllättävän painava, mutta aina sitä oppii uutta ;D

    1. Thanks! I did a lot of browsing on other people's Mad Max costumes, I think it's the best way to make you own, by combining things you see.
