Like many of the characters in League of Legends, Morgana the Fallen Angel has a striking costume. She has wings that seem impossible to replicate in real life, but cosplayers have figured it out – including Issabel Cosplay. She made the costume almost a year ago, and it’s an interesting build because it includes a few different components: giant feathered wings, a fabric skirt, bracers, fabric panels with gold detailing, and a belt. It makes you flex your skills.
The wings are the most fascinating part of the costume to me. Issabel built a frame from PVC pipe and wire and added feathers that were dyed by hand to become a nice violet shade. They were glued one by one to the base.
The armored pieces such as the bracers and belt look like they’re made from Worbla, but they were actually crafted from EVA foam or craft foam. They were coated with wood glue, a primer paint, and then painted in the proper shade with acrylic paint, and pigment concentrate.
