(This post is cross-posted from his account.)

This is a collaboration piece between my boyfriend and I for his upcoming Thief King Bakura cosplay.
It took a lot of work, a lot of time, and lots of paint fumes but it came out fantastic!!!

And really, he deserves all the credit for wanting to go that extra mile and make it fan open and all the hard work put into it. So any comments and faves should be done on his page, not mine.

:iconsuka044: cut out the wing's wood base, cut 4 L brackets and welded them together. He also cut and bent a piece of aluminum sheet metal to his wrist and riveted the brackets to it. On the inside of the bracer he attached a piece of leather and also drilled holes for the lacing. The 3 wings are attached by a bolt that allows them to fan open.

I cut out the foam and foam design taking liberty to allow a playing card to be placed inside. I also drew the monster on the first wing called Diabound. Last I painted the black to make it look old.

.:Materials:.
Aluminum Sheet metal
Leather (inside bracer and to lace it up)
Craft foam (thick and thin widths)
Lots of hot glue
Acrylic black paint
4 cans of gold spray paint

Oh I know it!! It only too so much to get the nice smooth look since the craft foam kept soaking it in. We are making another one but this time out of wood with a slight difference to the design.
Thanks!!
