If you’re dressing like a character from Mad Max: Fury Road, the steering wheel props are especially important. Nux and the other War Boys take great pride in having steering wheels for their rigs. You can make a lightweight version of the wheel to pair with your Nux cosplay, which is just what Misu, a.k.a. Marie, did. She used what looks like foam, paper, and maybe MDF to make the wheel and used the head from a plastic doll to adorn the center.
She used several layers of paint to give the wheel a metallic, rusted texture. You can see how the wheel looked before all that paint below.
