Capable: Goggles

[Capable Master Post]

Capable wears old-fashioned aviator goggles to keep her glorious red locks out of her face (being the practical woman that is she is). It might be her signature piece. On screen she wears the clear-lens version of these French aviator goggles. 79 euros was way out of my price range, and I figured I could find a less expensive but still fairly accurate version somewhere else. So! I started looking…

On eBay, many costumey things that are not steampunk are marked as steampunk, which lead me to create this meme…

I ultimately decided on a pair of goggles very similar to Capable’s…

They work well! These were under $20 and I liked the padding. They may be oversized but the colour and overall aesthetic is more important…

Master post for Capable from Mad Max: Fury Road. I debuted this costume in June 2016 at a local cosplay event. Beyond a basic physical resemblance, I chose Capable largely because her character balanced needing to take charge as Furiosa’s second-hand-woman and her empathy for the other characters. Her outfit is just cool, too.

Karol’s page on the Five Wives was very useful in the beginning but I needed more. I scoured Google, Pinterest, and screenshot galleries for months while planning and working on it. Interestingly, I found it useful to compare my vision to other Capables.

All in all it cost me about $155. I will have construction info on each page. The fabrics are too clean but overall I was happy with how it turned out.
