Moving Pharah Wigs Tutorial

Overwatch’s Phara has wings in the game, and Germia constructed a replica that’s fully articulated. As you can imagine, crafting moving wings isn’t easy. She documented the process, and it’s helpful even if you aren’t making this specific costume. She used servos stripped from a drill to power the wings and make them move. Germia started by making the harness based around a backpack. She says:

I’ve just cut the front part of the backpack out and used only the polstered backside, that lies on your back with shoulder straps. I’ve added two straps in front to connect shoulder straps in the front too – it connects them between the neck and the breasts and the second added strap should be connected under the breasts.

I bought a solid piece of wood, that I cut in 3 parts – the biggest part would be connected to the backpack and the two smaller parts were fastened to the bigger part with metal connectors and establish the angle between the wings.

The finished costume:

You can see a couple photos from the build process below and read the complete (and thorough) how-to at Germia’s blog.
