I’ve FINALLY finished editing the photos that Ed took of me at the Mad Max: Fury Road group shoot a couple of weeks ago in Honolulu. Of course, once again I didn’t make a specific character costume, but chose to make my own Assassin’s Creed mashup costume! As soon as I saw Mad Max: Fury Road in the theater, I went around to all the Goodwill locations I could get to around Oahu and bought up a ton of faux and real leather jackets, as well as a set of football pads, and a men’s large waffle weave shirt. A few weeks after that, i found the perfect motorcycle jacket at Goodwill for only $30. However, I didn’t start actually making the costume until a day and a half before the photo shoot…but this is what I ended up with! And yes, right before we started shooting, I literally rolled in the dirty and had someone smear some mud on me. So far this has been one of my favorite cosplays because I could be as grungy and gross as I have been in this summer humidity we’ve been having, because it was accurate to the aesthetic of the film.
Enjoy the rest of the photos!

So, it’s no secret among my friends and family that I absolutely loved Mad Max: Fury Road. The visuals of that movie completely blew me away, and inspired me like nothing has in a long time. I only got to see the movie once so far, but I find myself pouring over the art book, reading the comics, and clicking through all the screencaps I find online.
And then there’s Fallout 4. Confession time – I haven’t played the Fallout series…yet. Actually, as soon as I get my cosplays together for the next convention in a couple weeks, I plan on streaming my playthoughs of all of the currently released Fallout games on my Twitch channel over the next few months, hopefully finishing in time for the release of Fallout 4. It’s one of the franchises I always wanted to play, but never got around to it…until now!
However, in a creative collaboration of sorts with my husband, who was my official Fallout adviser for this project, I painted this Fallout 4 poster, inspired by the design aesthetics of Mad Max: Fury Road.
I’m pretty stoked with how it turned out! Now that I’m finally spending more time painting (rather than working on photography), it’s been awesome to try new things!
If you like this painting, I have it available with text and without text in my Society 6 shop.
