World of Warcraft is home to many characters and creatures, including Faerie Dragons. Tingilya Cosplay found a way to bring one of them, Brightwing, to life in a bold costume that has glowing wings. She used Worbla to create mini versions of the Faerie Dragons to carry around with her and also used Worbla for the armored pieces of her costume. To make the wings, she used scaffolding reinforced with aluminum so the lightweight material could flutter. You can see the movement of the wings and the lighting in this video.
