Some superheroes inspire people to get super crafty. Australian makeup artist and children’s party entertainer Rhylee Passfield took inspiration from everyone’s now-favorite female superhero, Wonder Woman, and using a yoga mat, duct tape, and a little magic from a heat gun, she created a wonderful 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.”
Then, using a heat gun, the woman curved the corset, and made the breastplate pattern using fake nails. The eagle, belt, leg armor, gauntlets, and the headpiece were all made from thin craft foam, scrap vinyl and boyleg underwear were used to make the skirt, and the shoes are a painted thrift shop find.
“All up the costume cost me about $30 and took about 50 hours as it was my first time making anything like it.”
The artist said that drawing has been her passion since she was a little kid, and now she wants to branch out into more areas. This costume was a way for her to challenge herself and test her artistic abilities. See what she did and how she did it in the pictures and videos below.
