Description
This is by far the hardest cosplay I have made to date and has certainly made me re-think my cosplay plans for the future! I have wanted to do a winged cosplay since forever and Angewomon was a personal childhood fave so I couldn't resist! The hardest part of the costume was transporting and wearing it funnily enough. I could only handle about 2 hours in the thing before retreating to the hotel and changing out of it! Some day I would like to go back and improve the rush jobs and fix it to be a little more durable and wearable.

wow that wing mechanism is pretty cool looking, so are you gonna make them flap by jsut pulling on the strap or perhaps finding a way to make them flap when moving arms?

Well I would rather with strings otherwise I will constantly have to have my arms up which isn't fun! (plus it would restrict my arm movement down also)

so there will be hoops on the end of the string and two hooks on my lower back so I can hook them on to keep them up, and still have arm movement!

ah very clever, that vacuum formed helmet will be much more ideal, plus it should be just as durable too kinda =].
Hows the wing progress?

@Zane-destiny

Ha the helmet is so durable I can throw it around the room and nothing happens ;]

As for the wings, I am no longer making them move since I cant afford for them to get dammaged in the moving process. (feathers costed me £100 OUCH)

So far I have only made the wire armature for the wings, the feathers I am waiting for in the post still :C

LOL they're about 1.5m wing span so yes HUGE, I'll store them at the hotel when I want to go buy things. They're to scale on my body though, good thing im quite short otherwise they woulda been bigger X__X

BACK IN BUSINESS BABYYYY (Posted 6th May 2010)

Ahem, well..
Since I fortunately finished my elite beat agent cosplay in super quick timing there is still hope for angewomon! I have been working like crazy on it and theres a 70% chance it will be finished for expo! Progress pictures coming soon when something is ACTUALLY finished. (Everything is in the works at about 60-80% done, some needing just paint, but none fully completed)

I solved one dilema the other day when I found my helmet being too heavy. One kilogram of clay was not going to sit confortably on my head all day! So I pleaded with my old secondary school if it would be so kind as to let me use their vacuum former. They kindly agreed and now I have a super lightweight copy in plastic! Just have to add the small details to it and it is as good as finished.

That's about it for now, peace out.

Postponed (Posted 14th March 2010)

Yup, title says all.
Quite simply, I don't think I will have the time to complete her up to scratch ready for May Expo.

Too many things went wrong in a short space of time, and It will murder my mental health if I try pick it up from now XD

So for now, I am saving it for October expo! I'll have the whole summer to pull it off properly.

But who knows! A miracle might happen and I might get the morale boost I need to complete it. But for now, Diva is main priority.

Here's the breast plate at any rate that was nearly completed. Needed another sand and coating before painting ;)
