Furiosa Halloween Costume

The first thing you'll need to do is shave your head or get a buzz cut. Furiosa sports a buzz cut with her forehead often smeared with grease in a fashion similar to other Imperators, and a small number of War Boys. If you don't want to go all the way with a buzz cut, you can use a bald cap and makeup to create a similar effect.

Furiosa is missing her left forearm, but it is substituted by a mechanical prosthetic consisting of various parts. You can recreate this by using a prosthetic arm that is available at many costume shops or online retailers.

Moving on to her outfit, Furiosa's blouse is a natural-colored/light tan scoop-neck made of scraps. The blouse appears to be made from a pilled cotton knit and has a tiny French sleeve on the right. The left sleeve is longer, and there is a bunched-up, bandage look around the bustline. Due to the similarities of the fabric of the blouse to the clothing worn by the Five Wives, some have loosely speculated that her blouse is a remnant from her days as a breeder. You can create a similar blouse by using scraps of natural-colored fabric and adding some bandage-like details around the bustline.

Furiosa wears a dark brown girdle that is form-fitting from the underbust to the hips. It is laced in the rear, possibly made of leather, and has a layer of fabric showing through at the top. Three assorted leather belts cover the waist, and have attachments for the shoulder pad. An additional brown leather belt sits on the hips and carries two leather pouches, as well as a hanging emblem on the front. The emblem has assorted chains hanging from it.

For her trousers, Furiosa wears fabric trousers reminiscent of horse riding trousers. There may be some stretch leather panels on them. There are slits bordered with stitching all over the outer panels of the trousers, and interesting stitch patterns on the seams. You can recreate this look by finding a pair of riding trousers and adding some stitching details.

Furiosa's boots are black modern motorcycle boots, and the tops of the boots are obscured by a wide anklet cuff on the left leg, and a zippered half-chap or gaiter on the right leg. You can find similar boots at a motorcycle or costume shop.

Finally, the shoulder pad is a key element of Furiosa's costume. The pad has what appears to be a plastic plate (perhaps from an old motocross roost protector), and a guilted soft padding underneath. The plate appears to have a tiny motor, pull-start handle, and hoses attached (ostensibly to run the prosthetic arm). There are also a number of brown leather straps running from the pad to various points on the three belts and the prosthetic. Pieces of bicycle inner tube are used in the belts for elasticity. The soft padding appears to be covered in a basic natural-color utility cotton fabric, and is likely filled with cotton batting. It has the appearance of vintage sports protective gear.

In conclusion, Imperator Furiosa is a great Halloween costume choice for those who want to channel their inner warrior. By following this guide, you can recreate Furiosa's iconic look and impress your friends with your
