Beverly Downen of Downen Creative Studios took her Furiosa cosplay from Mad Max: Fury Road in an innovative direction for Wizard World Portland. She became Furiosa the Riveter. She mixed the aesthetic and prosthetics of Furiosa’s post apocalyptic attire with a victory roll and Rosie the Riveter’s blue shirt and red polka-dotted handkerchief. She even applied makeup that manages to emulate Furiosa and also works with the riveter stylings.
When Beverly built the prosthetic arm and shoulder plate for Furiosa last year, she shared some making-of pictures on Facebook. She used a combo of Worbla, foam, and found objects (like plant holder chains and plastic caps) to build the arm and finished the accessory/prop with silver paint. A few in-progress pics are below.
