Now I grew interested in this costume when my friend sent me this

Now I loved this outfit. It had horns, wings, it had intricate detail, things I was looking for in my next costume.

However, I went looking for cosplays and found no one did the wings. At first I figured "Oh well it's because wings are by no means easy, I understand" But then I looked for reference pictures. The wings weren't there. This picture I was given was a fan edit I guess, and now I'm wondering, will fans be upset if I add the wings? I thought it really added to the costume, and I loved the small extra detail. It showed her dragon side with the horns, and some that don't know who the character is might like the wings to show she is a dragon.

Do you guys think anyone would mind me adding in that detail? I just loved the wings being a part of the outfit, I think they really added to it.

The wings are definitely a fan edit.

I don't think anyone would be upset if you added them, but you might have people who don't immediately recognize the character if you do add them.

And that's fine :) I just think that the wings really add something to the costume. I did further research and I did find one cosplayer that had wings, though they were small. So at least I"m not the first one doing it. I just wasn't sure if I would have certain people going 'omg she doesn't actually have wings in the game you n00b' or something like that...

I really am rather fragile :P

I don't think anyone would mind- She does have wings in her dragon form, after all.
