Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett Costume

NPC Captain Scarlett is part of the first downloadable content (DLC) for Borderlands 2. She needs help looking for booty. Typical pirate. Tarah-Rex cosplayed the character and made the costume so screen accurate that it looks like she’s part of the game. Note that achieving such a close match isn’t only about making the same clothes and props, it’s about weathering. Tarah-Rex aged the leather and metal. If it was all shiny and perfect, the costume wouldn’t have the same effect.

Tarah-Rex made sure to pay attention to the little things as well:

I feel like the small details are the most important part of her, so I’m custom making all her pins and jewelry based off of my interpretation.

That includes medallions and Scarlett’s skull captain pin.

She built the props and clothing, including welding Scarlett’s mech arm. That’s right, Scarlett doesn’t have any regular hook – it’s attached to a big cyber contraption. After welding it, Tarah-Rex covered the prop in paper mache before filling, sanding, and painting.
