This costume wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The hardest part was actually finding stuff to make it.
We made the wings out of an old aluminum framed backpack, balsa wood, and a few other screws, nuts and bolts. We found a tutorial on how to make them.
The wig we used was a $6.00 wig from Wal*Mart that we cut up, used two cans of hairspray on, and glued to the headpiece.
We made the headpiece out of cardboard and red spraypaint. And hot glue.
I did the boots out of an old pair of boots and just painted them. For the hand we used a pair of gloves from Claire's and painted them (we're scrambiling to get it done in time for the con so we improvised a lot of things, it still looks amazing)
The wrist guards and the one armor thing for the upper arm was cardboard painted gold.
The pants are a pair of pants we got from the Salvation army, and we cut up an old pair of black curtains for the shirt.
We found this amazing fabric for the wings, and I got to cut it up and be artistic with it to make it look like his wings.
This costume was REALLY fun to wear, even though I only wore it for a few hours and went to one photoshoot with it.
The wings hurt my shoulders a little bit but that was to be expected. The 'hip accent' things kept coming off the pants because the pants were old and falling apart. ^^ But if I can get a good pair of pants and a proper way to attach then along with the leg armor then I will definantly wear this again.
If anyone has any pics of my outfit, please send them to me it would be very much appreciated.
