Well, this has been a dream cosplay of mine for a long time. So I'm glad it's finally been completed.
I'll start by talking about the wings, since they are obviously the main part of all of this. At first I had no idea where to begin, I searched around for easy-to-make cheap tutorials but that didn't help much. Then finally I stumbled upon a tutorial for retractable angel wings. I followed that step by step and, Viola! They were complete. They took just around 4 and a half months to complete, and they can flap and retract by pulling on a pulley on the back. The harness goes around my waist and shoulders and is stationed on my back. It takes 3-5 people to put on and take off the wings. So yeah, these wings are definitely not for lone congoers ^^;
The rest of the outfit was much easier. No pattern was used for the duster, and it came out surprisingly well. There is a story behind it though, I made it perfectly the first time and dyed it after days of stressing out about it, only to find out that I sewed the entire thing inside out -_- But, fortunately I was smart enough to have a backup.
The wig, boots, skirt, leggings, and tank top are reused from my first Rinoa cosplay.
Monty Oum complemented me on this costume, that's worth more than any award.
