I bought the fabric for this 3 years ago than gave up with it coz I felt it would be too hard. I have now decided to reattempt this project with frederica_la_noir as my oruha! We want to choose outfits that contrasted each other and I have finally settle on this design.

Thank you for all the lovely comments

@BabemRoze I love your photos coz they capture the back of the cosplay really well - and lets face it the front is really boring :P

@SachikoYumi Thank you and your yuna was so beautiful - you did so well in CC. Hope you had lots of fun :)

Wings (Posted 28th November 2011)

The feathers for the wings were made out of mountboard and held together by a black black base. in the middle of the black plastic wire comes out which I then made a ring shape to fit around my shoulders. Leaving the wire exposed ran the risk of cutting or digging into my arm so I decided to cover the inside segment with a layer of cushion foam. Then both parts were covered with the antique gold pleather.

Using this technique avoided the need for a backpack or having a central bar. They are a little uncomfy - well one is and the other fits brilliantly? But I really like the fact they bob up and down when I walk - I think that looks really cute.
