It seems like everyone is working on Guardians of the Galaxy costumes these days, and I have to keep sharing them. This Nebula costume absolutely blows me away. Karin Olava Effects made a gorgeous costume and applied exact Nebula makeup. She built most of the ensemble before the film was even released! Her screen accurate work even garnered the attention of Guardians’ director James Gunn.
Karin used a variety of purple fabrics for the bodysuit, and the contrasting textures make a big difference. She sculpted the armor pieces from both craft foam and Worbla and covered them with soft leather. Though it looks like she bought some new leather too, she also used a second hand purple leather jacket. Thrift stores are your friend.
