Labyrinth Junk Lady Cosplay

Jen and John Yates of EPBOT are constantly working on creative projects involving crafts and cosplay, but they’ve really outdone themselves with their most recent build. They’ve put together a Junk Lady costume from Labyrinth. They spent roughly three weeks making a replica of an outfit not usually tackled by cosplayers. The Junk Lady offered challenges for John with construction and logistics and more loose, crafty stuff for Jen to do. They basically chose the perfect costume to team up to create.

Their Junk Lady started with a PVC frame and a foam head covered in masking tape and paper mache. All her features were sculpted on with paper clay, and as Jen points out, it didn’t cost a fortune. She says:

My only sculpting tools are from a $2 plastic cake decorating kit: a small spatula and a few pointy sticks.

And the paint? Jen used $0.89 bottles from the craft store.

John and Jen built nearly everything from scratch. The lady carries around a ton of stuff in her junk pile, and they studied the film to identify as many pieces as possible. John made stuff from scratch like the chair, satchel, and the toy abacus. They packed so much stuff on the pack it’s kind of insane.
