Mad Max: Fury Road has made an impression. It may not have topped the box office, but I see discussions about Imperator Furiosa filling my timelines on social media. The plot, the look, the costumes – all of it seems to have people excited. DeviantArt user Thomasotom, also known as Thomas, was inspired by the trailer last fall and started sculpting an Immortan Joe mask in August. He was molding the finished sculpt by October with silicone and fiberglass. He had the mask completed by Halloween, months before the film was released in theaters.
Details on the mask:
This is a lifesize wearable mask measuring 19cm wide, cast in cold cast aluminium fibreglass with resin and rubber parts. It comes with an adjustable elasticated strap and foam padding on the inside.
The finish is a combination of polishing for the metal sections and airbrushing for the rest. The rubber hoses are included.
Thomas sold the Immortan Joe masks/respirators in his Etsy shop for a while, but it looks like they’re currently out of stock. You can probably reach out for a custom order if you’re interested in purchasing one.
