Imperator Furiosa prosthetic arm help

I've researched several robotic arm tutorials. They all seem great, but none really address a way to do a fake, prosthetic limb. Is this even possible?! Or am I kidding myself?

Here's a picture:

I'm also looking for help with Furiosa, starting with some actually decent photos of her outfit. The prosthetic is gonna be hard, but I think I'll just end up having an elbow-length black glove and building pieces of the arm around it. That's pretty much the only option I've been able to come up with. :P

I'm also planning on tackling this project, probably in the next month or so. I always take oodles of pics, so if it turns out well, I can post a link to the tutorial on my blog. If it doesn't turn out well, then no tutorial, lol.

The problem I've always had with things like this is, what do you do with the real arm?
My interest was in how to cosplay Tezzeret:

With Furiosa's forearm, the mechanism is clearly thinner than her arm would be, if it existed. You would have to widen the design of the arm to accommodate your flesh. At that point, you just create a metal-like sleeve around your forearm, I would assume.

I found this cool gallery of some closer shots of Furiosa, Max, and Immorten Joe. I also saved off the Furiosa stuff into a tumblr post, because that other website takes a lot of time for me to load it. Of course, the full-body of Furiosa is blurry >_< Whyyyy, that's the only one I neeeed.

Just saw the movie last night and it was fantastic, I'm also planning on cosplaying Furiosa in the near future and am currently gathering reference images and stumble upon this gem, hope this helps everyone!

http://madmaxcostumes.com/informatio...rator-furiosa/

Also here's a good start to doing her arm, http://jackgabrielcosplay.tumblr.com...to-upload-last since they green screened the actresses real arm out in the movie, the best bet for cosplaying her would be to use a black material/makeup under the robotic arm. Or you could get really daring and make an entire prosthetic arm and hide your real arm in your shirt.

Entire thread with links to more images of the above posted arm. http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=239828

I couldn't wait! I've started my build and as I write the tutorials I'll post the links here. My arm isn't screen accurate exactly and it won't be a replica, but I'm doing the best I can with my minimal prop making skills and documenting it to at least give a jumping off point for anyone interested in tackling this project. I'll post the arm tutorials first, but if anyone wants, I'm writing tutorials for everything and I can post those as well.

Nice work!

Thinking about doing Bloodbag Max or maybe Bulletfarmer (more ambitious, I always wanted to work with leather)

btw.: That top image breaks the thread (don't know if it's resized for other users)

That's the finished product. And the tutorial part one

So turns out I won't be cosplaying Furiosa right away, but I will be helping my friend make her outfit. I'll be sewing all the cloth parts, and she'll be modeling and 3D printing the arm and belt buckle, as well as doing the leather work. We're doing a Mad Max group for Colossalcon 2016 with her as Furiosa, me as Splendid, her boyfriend as Max, and her sisters as Nux and Capable. I'm so excited!

Nice work AnnaStasia your tutorial is awesome, keep up the good work!
And Schmemy that's an awesome group! My boyfriend and best friend have already told me they are game to be Max and Immortan Joe for our group cosplay next year, super excited!

Also I realize this is a thread specifically about her arm but I figured might as well just use it for all things Furiosa, instead of making a new thread, on to the question.

What is everyone doing for Furiosa's hair? Its pretty much a buzz cut and short of actually buzzing your head I haven't ever seen a wig that short. Arda's Rocky is the shortest I've seen but still too long for Furiosa. Any thoughts? Arda Rocky Wig

While on the hunt to find something to work for Furiosas hair without flat out shaving it off I came across these three options as posted by WARPAINTandUnicorns in a thread awhile back, hope this helps! =)

But here as 3 option for you shave side.

Use a bald cap a with a stippling sponge at the stubble texture. Then glue down your wig piece over it. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/63120832253774130/

Shave down faux Fur to make the side section.

And final shave down a dense wig that is a Rocky that you link from Arda a buzz cut it down.

Not bad ideas! I think I'll be going the Rocky route, if not just shaving my head since I want and undercut anyways.
