Costume made/modeled by: Kira Kouture, featuring: - custom drape/ pattern drafted top and legging pants - custom altered leather boots and belt - custom built wings
Personal Note: This was my 1st cosplaying costume, created for Dragon Con 2012. It took me a little over a year to make this costume. The wings are the heaviest and most difficult to construct. They weigh about 40 lbs. The quills are hand stitched so they will not fall/break off if someone bumps into them. The rest of the feathers were meticulously glued to make the wings look as real as possible. I lost count after 800 feathers used on the wings. The wings can also move back and forward by the way my upper body is positioned. So if I lean forward, the wings come forward and if I lean back the wings move back. This was part of the construction of the wings so I can move around in tight spaces, like an elevator.
So pretty much, every picture that ~pireze took on this shoot is BADASS so why deny it by not uploading more pictures XD
And the famous last words that I uttered in my previous Steph submission "I'LL NEVER TOUCH PLEATHER AGAIN"... are currently being eaten since I made another pleather bodysuit a few months after this was completed, and I'm planning another next year lol
