Dragon Con took place over the weekend, and the annual convention that takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, never disappoints on the cosplay front. Costuming is the unofficial focus of the event, and makers go all out to build elaborate, creative, and off the wall ensembles. In fact, many cosplayers pack a costume for each day or multiple costumes for each day. I’ll highlight some of the themed group gatherings tomorrow, but for now, let’s admire this genderswapped Immortan Joe costume by Chaos Costumes. She made every aspect of the costume from sculpting the mask, to applying the makeup, to making the plastic breastplate. Her notes on making the breastplate:
I used PETG plastic. I heated it up in the oven on a cookie sheet and stretched it over a mannequin using a frame. Then I sprayed it with matte clear enamel – then airbrushed the abs.
You can see a few in-progress pictures below.
