Mad Max: Fury Road is a visual feast. There are characters with scrapped together costumes, characters in wild and creative gear, and characters covered in scars. Katelyn Jones Cosplay dressed as the War Boy Nux (she’s posing with her sister, Immortan Joan) and made the raised designs on Nux’s skin using Plastalina. Coregeek says:
It all turned out great and she had many compliments on how good it looked. It was a lot of work to get right, especially the lips.
She hand sculpted everything out of Plastalina. We then made hard molds with Smoothcast 300 and poured the appliances with Smoothon Dragon Skin. I attached everything with Skin Tite silicone adhesive from Smoothon.
Coregeek added the body paint with a ProAir Hybrid airbrush paint.
