Superheroes sometimes inspire people to get crafty. An Australian makeup artist and children’s party entertainer Rhylee Passfield just took some inspiration from the famous female superhero, Wonder Woman. Taking a yoga mat, duct tape and magic from a heat gun, she managed to create an awesome costume.
“Basically, I started by duct-taping myself”, the artist explained the process to the Daily Mail Australia.
“Then I cut out a pattern from the duct tape form, copied it onto a Kmart yoga mat and glued it together using contact adhesive.”
Using a heat gun, she curved the corset and made the breastplate pattern using fake nails. Strange? From thin craft foam and scrap vinyl she made the eagle, belt, leg armor, gauntlets and the headpiece.
“All up the costume cost me about $30 and took about 50 hours as it was my first time making anything like it.”
Drawing has been her passion since she was a little girl and now she wants to experiment into more areas. Rhylee wanted to challenge herself with this costume and she managed to pull it off perfectly.
Down below there’s a list of pictures compiled by Bored Panda where you can see her work step by step. Enjoy!
