Heaven's wheel by Majixe Heaven's wheel by Majixe
Well, Ohayocon 2013 came and went and here is the first picture of my cosplay (photographed by the amazing :iconhiddendemon-666:) I decided to do Erza Scarlet's (Fairy Tail) Heaven's Wheel armor once again because i wasn't too happy with how my last version of it turned out :/ I gave myself a little bit more time to work on this one and I am so much happier with the results ^-^ I was still having a few problems with the rigging to the wings but all and all I think it was a lot more successful of a cosplay than last years.

Thanks and let me know what you all think ^-^

This is a phenomenal cosplay.  I have actually wanted to make this too, and I was wondering where you got the craft foam sheets that large.  I have checked all around me and can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thank you :3

I was able to find the 7 ft rolls of it in the kids craft section of my Joann Fabrics store back home. I do know that not all of the stores have it, the one I live by is tiny and didn't sell it, so you may have to look for a large store. I'm not sure if it's sold from their website or not, but it may be worth looking into ^^ (it took me four rolls of the 7ft to make the wings, and then some of the 12x18 sheets for the smaller bits of the wings ^^)

Hope that helps ^^

I really wish i had taken a picture of this, but to attach them, I made a rig that strapped on my back (three straps, one elastic around my chest, and then ribbon ones on each shoulder) it was just made out of layered cardboard. Then i cut slits in the cardboard to thread soft plastic through, i made little sleeve type things out of the soft plastic for the wings to slide into (the sleeves made almost an 'x' shape in the back, a little flatter of an x shape) on the wood rod of the wings, i put pegs (making the rod wider for about half an inch) where they hit the top of the sleeve, and then on the other side of peg, i attached another, smaller, sleeve that could be tied tightly on the other side of the peg on the wing's support, keeping it in place. Then I had a panel of craft foam designed to look like the back of the wings that flipped over it once the wings were in and covered it completely (i have a picture of that on here, but sadly i didn't just get a picture of the rig :/)

I hope that helps ^^ it's an odd thing to try and explain
