More and more cosplayers are joining the fun of cosplaying characters from Mad Max: Fury Road. The aesthetic of the film is very specific, and the main characters have memorable looks. Imperator Furiosa is a popular choice, clearly, and one cosplayer who dressed as her is also working on a Nux costume. As one of Immortan Joe’s War Boys, Nux is bald, shirtless, and pale. Jack Gabriel Cosplay recently finished modifying a cheap pair of goggles from eBay to look more like the ones Nux wears in the film. The before picture is just below. Jack dry brushed and sanded the goggles to achieve the effect.
If you need to figure out how to replicate Nux’s makeup, this video from Freakmo goes over how to create it with encapsulated silicone proshetic:
And if you want to create a fun prop to carry around while dressed as Nux, Replica Props Forum user PoopaPapaPalps is making this bird that sits the dashboard of Nux’s car – pictures and notes on the process are in this thread.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
