So, Im making a cosplay for Gig from Soul Nomad and the World Eaters (otherwise called Soul Cradle) and I have no Idea how to make the arms, let alone attatch them to my body because his float and stuff.

Here's a picture

So uhh, any suggestions?

For attaching it to your body, follow Jia's wing tutorial.

She wore a corset with tracks sewn into it. The light wings were built on a frame of thick 9 guage wire. Two rods from the frame slide into the corset track.

You could wear one underneath the shirt and simply put a couple holes in the back.

Yeah but I'm a guy and I don't think I'll wear a corset.
You think maybe I could just attatch them directly to my arms or shoulders? Like using some straps and clear plastic rods?

The only thing I can think of would be to make a "harness" that is made of clear plastic straps that attach to it, go over your shoulders, and then are anchored to your torso somehow, but even then, the placement is really weird since they hang off the shoulders.

Instead of a corset get a back brace or something from Walgreens to wrap around your torso that you could tuck a harness into. That in combo with clear straps.
