Zoe Saldana’s Gamora may be considered the deadliest assassin in the galaxy, but we’re singing a different tune after seeing this Nebula cosplay. As Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ hits more milestones, the latest being its rise to the No. 1 movie of the summer, more cosplayers are incorporating the film into their works, and one standout is Karin Olava.
In addition to all the Rocket Raccoons running around San Diego Comic – Con and this epic Groot, Olava brought this “daughter of Thanos” to life for Torucon in Norway. While she crafted the armor through a combination of foam pieces, worbla (a type of thermoplastic) and leather, she took a nod from Karen Gillan for a realistic touch — much like how the actress shaved her head to portray Nebula in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ so too did Olava for her creation.
While in Torucon, Olava met up with cosplay photographer Danarki to take some incredible portrait shots of her fully formed Nebula cosplay. See them below, and check out more of Olava’s work on her Facebook page.
