Kayle is one of the many heroes in League of Legends, and the Aether Wing look is one of her many outfit skins. It gives her a glowing sword and wings, and cosplayer Bonnie (Bonnie’s Cosplay) replicated the skin by using blue LEDs. The entire costume was beautifully constructed. Bonnie used Worbla for the armor, leather for the bodysuit, and then Wonderflex, PVC pipes, foam and more for the wings. The wings are built on a harness so they can move in addition to lighting up. They’re probably not the most lightweight, but it’s hard to re-create wings to make them look like an accurate replica and keep them light. As you can see in the above photo, the result is beautiful.
There are a few progress photos showing off the LEDs below, and you can see more at Facebook.
