Fully Motorized Aether Wing Kayle Cosplay

Elmins Cosplay went big for his first ever cosplay. He decided to make Aether Wing Kayle from League of Legends. He didn’t only construct the massive wings, he made them fully motorized. He spent 1,000 hours on the project and taught himself as he went through tutorials and guides. He didn’t know anything about electronics, mechanics, or even using EVA foam before starting. It’s amazing.

Elmins’ comments on the wings:

You can see it’s controlled via an Android app, but it can be controlled via a keypad (Connected via a repurposed ethernet socket/cable). The chest piece is loosely hung in front. The video doesn’t show the small feathers rotating, the various lighting modes (Of course it has a sweet rave strobe mode), and the structured sequencing. It’s programmed to do the entire opening/close sequences in 1 button press each (among other sequences), with varying lighting and coordinated servo motor moment.
Bearing in mind this is the first time I done any of this and that it’s done using relatively very basic tools, you can begin to understand the level of difficulty.

See the mechanics in action in this Facebook video.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
