How One Cosplayer Combines Costumes and Mechanical Engineering

Titania cosplay

Design is an important part of the cosplay process, and if you’re a cosplayer with a mechanical engineering background, I can only imagine what is possible. Chrissy Setian Marchese attended the Stevens Institute of Technology and decided to use the skills she honed there to improve her costume efforts and add a little something extra. She calls the method Engineering Couture. Her background and know-how has assisted her with crafting things such as electromagnetically actuated wings and an actuated elevator that made the costume it was paired with — the fairy queen Titania from A Midsummer Night’s Dream — rise off the ground. You can see the latter in the above image.
