Making Imperator Furiosa’s Prosthetic Arm

Imperator Furiosa Cosplay 1

Mad Max: Fury Road introduced a striking world and equally remarkable characters. From a purely superficial perspective, the design of the world and the costumes is incredible. It complements the story, and in the case of Imperator Furiosa, the costume opens up all sorts of questions about her history. It also makes her an appealing choice for cosplayers. Jack Gabriel made an entire Furiosa costume in only three days and did a wonderful job re-creating her metallic prosthetic arm.

Jack spoke to Yahoo Movies about making the detailed costume piece. He specifically chose to cosplay Furiosa because he “liked the challenge of creating the arm.” Though he initially tried using Worbla, he ended up switching to foam for more flexibility.

“The three remaining pieces of the prosthetic were crafted from Worbla and found materials, including pen casings, aluminum tubing, wire, and belts. ‘All of these pieces then had to be primed with three to five layers of wood glue, primed black, sprayed silver, and then aged with acrylic paint to give them a worn-metal effect,’ Jack explained.”
