Immortan Joe, Jr. Costume

Beverly Downen of Downen Creative Studios makes costumes for herself — like this great Furiosa the Riveter — and also others. Zack, age 8, wanted to be a warlord so she jumped on the request and put together a Mad Max: Fury Road Immortan Joe costume. The vicious tyrant is slightly less scary in miniature form. The face mask/breathing apparatus is the most complex part of the costume, and Beverly sculpted it from Worbla and epoxy. Because the mask covers so much of the face and can make people, especially a small child, feel claustrophobic, she designed it to have a quick release system with easy to remove hooks. A picture below shows the painting process and the transformation is impressive.
