Super Smash Bros. Brawl
DescriptionWhat a pain in the butt! This costume was part of the Smash Bros. group we did for a skit at Archon, and I was hoping to make something I could wear in the hall. In the end, I decided to make the wings full like they are when he flies, so now I can't really wear the costume anywhere.
I'm not terribly proud of the costume itself, but I think I didn't do too badly on the wig, and the wings are lovely (despite how long it took to get the design right). The wings are made from PVC shaped with a heat gun and hinged with springs and clevis pins. There are four joints in each wing - a twist joint where they meet the straight pieces that fit into my harness, a ball joint where they turn upward, and two spring-controlled joints for them to flap naturally (one at the first bend and the second a foot from the tip). They fold down completely although I can't control them with string because of the structure of my costume. I'm trying to fix that.
