Aion I by the-mirror-melts Aion I by the-mirror-melts
Source: Aion
Asmodian
Variation: Elite Archon Squad Leader Cloth Set
Wings: Munin wings
Sword: Flarestorm

Cosplay made and worn by *the-mirror-melts
Photo by Hypersapiens

Aion is one of those games that cosplayers drool over. With customized costumes and a wide choice of wings, hair and weapons.
This is my first secret costume of the year. I learned a lot of lessons with this costume.

Wings: It is held on by a corset. The feathers are foam. Thanks to ~mnemosyneforgot for wing tips. A special thanks to *Thornrose ~Iridescent-Fall ~lightpriestess who help me cut out feathers for the wings. Easily over 250 feathers on this.

I hope to get more photos outside of the con setting. It is hard to find enough space with a huge wing span. I hope to improve on it before the next shoot, mostly a new wig, preferably pink :)

More Aion

I did a bit of a mix and match to get the colour scheme I wanted. Here's what I used: Elite Archon Squad Leader Cloth Set, Munin wings, Sword: Flarestorm

Looks awesome, Flarestorm is the asmodian eqivalent for the Stormwing i guess?

Not playing. I barely have time to work on my costumes. I need to catch up on my backlog of PS3 games then maybe try an MMO either League of Legends or Tera. I have a Tera costume planned for 2013.

What a shame :(
Oh I see...
Talking about LoL and TERA, I tried both and I enjoyed TERA the most.
You know, the true action combat and everything. Mostly cause I never really liked DotA...
Well Good luck with that! (:

That was a really good idea to use foam for the feathers. Looking at them I thought maybe they were paper. Those wings are awesome!

Thank you. They are very light too. Paper is not durable enough and you have to pray that it doesn't rain or else they would be ruined.

Where did you get the foam for the wings and about how much did it cost?

I'm looking to make a pair of big wings for a future cosplay, but feathers are sooo expensive

I buy foam rolls at Micheals they are about $10 each it took 2.5-3 of them plus two thicker foam mats for the base ($2 each at the Dollarama)
The copper pipe and Masonite base were things my father had lying around.
