Rise of the Guardians: Wings Up by MangoSirene Rise of the Guardians: Wings Up by MangoSirene
"Wings up, ladies, and take no prisoners!"

~

Before you ask: ;P
- The wings are made from craft foam, wire, and a sheer pearlescent fabric.
- The feathers were hand-dyed (they were white to start with). There are approximately 2,750 of them; they were all attached to a bodysuit by hand with the help of ~AmeZaRain and CopperLoks! The harness is comprised of two straps that criss-cross over my chest and attach to the wire frame. The straps go under the bodysuit.
- The large purple feathers are made from wire and flannel fabric, accented with peacock swords.

You did it perfectly!!!! I just need to ask how you glued the feathers on clothing?

MangoSirene Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
First they were glued on, and then I hand-tacked them in place with thread. :)

Yep! Glue, and then also tacked down with invisible thread.

How did you go about making the base for the headdress and attaching the feathers so they stood up so nicely?
Reply
:iconmangosirene:
MangoSirene Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The headdress feathers are turkey wing rounds, so they stood up quite nicely on their own! All I had to do was glue them to the hood of my bodysuit. :)

It's a pretty amazing feat what you did. Covering yourself in feathers. That takes a lot of work. But you look really fluffy and Toothiana isn't fluffy. Buts it's pretty great how you went about making the cosplay. You look amazing.

Surprisingly real feathers have quite a different texture than CGI feathers! And I felt using feathers was the most appropriate choice for Tooth. :) Thank you for the comment, nevertheless!

And THANK YOU CatalystSirene for being a SARCASTIC BITCH. This was just another critique and an honest opinion from another cosplayer. Thank you for talking down to me like I'm stupid and showing me that a little cosplay fame can give anyone a holier than thou attitude.

I'm sorry, you can not get angry when a cosplayer defends their costume choices when you critique it. You are lashing out and that was completely unnecessary. Popularity has nothing to do with it, where are you even getting that. Nothing about her reply was meant to offend you. It was simply explaining her choices. She literally said NOTHING rude to you.

Nina can be apologetic all she wants but you need to pipe the fuck down. Nothing she said requires for you to call her a bitch. All she was doing was explaining herself and her choices for her costume. Nothing she said was sarcastic and you need to stop taking out whatever aggression you have going on outside of this conversation out on someone who doesn't deserve it. That's called Psychological projection and is very unseemly.


Additionally, do you see on this photo that the cosplayer has asked for a critique? No. You're more than welcome to leave your opinion on the Internet but know that it might not always be appreciated and plenty of the times can come across as very disheartening to someone who spent hours and hours on a project. I'm not saying that was the case here: but maybe that is something to think about when commenting on future cosplays.

I wasn't talking down to you, I'm really sorry if it came across that way! :( I've just seen a lot of Tooth cosplayers criticized for being "too fluffy" but it's just the nature of how feathers work; Tooth's slick look just isn't possible to mimic with this medium, at least not on such a vast scale, but I thought feathers would be more appropriate for the character than, say, painting or a similar technique. That's what I was trying to convey - I'm so sorry that it came across sarcastically! ;___;

I appreciate the apology. You don't have to explain why you chose what you did for this cosplay because I get it. As a cosplayer it's up you you to choose what you think is the best way to represent the character you want to pretend to be. The feathers were a brilliant idea and a very good way to go. I just wanted to throw in my two-cents.

About how long did that take? My friend made a bunch of genderbend versions of all the guardians and I wanted to help her make them into cosplays.
