Songbird of BioShock Infinite creeps me out. The scary construct was Elizabeth’s protector, and cosplayer kaasutii built a pretty spot on version of the creature last year. Construction of the costume took about two months and involved materials such as wood, metal, and Worbla. The head is a wire frame attached to a backpack for a harness, and it looks like it’s a challenge to wear. She got around just fine though and did a fantastic job with the build.
She kept a journal with progress photos at Cosplay Island and shared her process for making Songbird’s feet:
Here is one foot, they are attached directly to the leather trousers. The claws are made from wood and the sprayed gold and black. There is a boot inside with I sprayed and carved expanding foam on to make them bigger and the correct shape. I then hand stitched the leather around. I love this costume as the more hand made it looks the better! As the songbird was a man made creature after all.
