Aikon Cosplay 2009 Kalas II by Labyrinth-keeper Aikon Cosplay 2009 Kalas II by Labyrinth-keeper
For Aikon 2009 I decided to be Kalas from Baten Kaitos, I was hoping to put a group together but none of my friends came through or showed interest in it so I'm by my lonesome. Maybe next year or the year after I'll be able to put a group together.

Anyway, I put this together in about a week and a half, because I'm dumb and always say I'm going to start in February or sooner, but do I ever start? Nope. Never ever. Because I am the dumbs.

Oh gosh a lot of corner cutting. I really want to redo it with a loss less corner cutting on it lol
The metal wing is made out of Pink Insulation foam, clear binders and coat hanger haha. It's all carved, painted, top coated and metallic sprayed.

Wow! You had such a pretty costume! I really like the wing!

Would you ever wear it again to Ai-kon?

Why thank you ^^ I really do enjoy making wings and should post that I sell them on the forums.. XD *is lazy*

I want to retool it and wear it again one day. Have the actual armor and make things out of plastic instead of foam.

Thank you kindly! It was super fun to do-I need to stop procrastinating like a bad animal and start my cosplays not the WEEK OF Aikon XD

Money would be great! ... seeing as I just spent 10 grand saying I'm a graphic designer and now jobs seem to have disappeared :P

Anything DSLR makes me happy.
We had a photography portion of a course in college and they spoiled us with the cameras as they had top of the line everything.
Now.. I can't use anything else without pining >_<

Thank you kindly.

This year I've been working on a cosplay ahead of time to see if I can make it of better quality. And I did manage to get a group-well, my friend and I. To play 2 characters from Lost Kingdoms II

Thank you for your sweet words <3

! <3 aw you're so sweet! Thank you so much, it's comments like this that make it all worth it. I loved Baiten Kaitos, it was a lovely game even if the voice acting could have used some work. It was fun and different.

I want to remake the cosplay in the future as it isn't as polished as I want it to be-I'm going to attempt to actually make a metal winglet that can open up as my friend is a super fantastic forger.

Also! Maybe you can have this cosplay-or a better version, I want to open a website to start commissions for these-especially wings. I love making wings.

Thank you again, it really makes my day to get comment from people like yourself lovely Thunderis <3

Thank you so much! I truly loved making this, though I was short on time it was a good start and I want to go back and take my time through it in the future.
Wings are my favorite thing to make, I'm so happy I got hot glue and feathers for Christmas, some time in the future I want to open up a website for selling them as those flat wings you can get around Halloween just make me sad.
Thank you for taking the time to comment! Always lifts my spirit <3

Kee Thank you! Thank you so much!
This has to be one of my favourite cosplays. I fell in love with Baiten Kaitos and had long forgotten about it until Aikon came around.

I want to do a total revamp of the costume and bring it back with real chest plates, real armor, and a foldable metal wing. I'm enlisting the help of my blacksmith buddy to make this come into reality. =D

:O that looks freaking AMAZING!!! Well done, the wings are especially badass. May I ask how you made them?

Labyrinth-keeper Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
Thank you ever so much! Wings are my specialty in costume making. I actually was working on a tutorial on how to make them, but I'll try to give you a brief overview of how I put them together.

Firstly the base is coat hangers bent into shape, then netting stretched over it. I cut some feathers into shape and gathered flight feathers and just hot-glued them on in reference to how the wings of birds are. ^^ Then I just used a stretched elastic to make the arm band for it to stay on. It's a different design than last year having a band that sits diagonally across the chest.

If you were to try your hand at it, make sure to put on a fan, I definitely got dizzy after having the glue gun on so long lol <3

Thanks a ton! I'll have a try at it next holidays :3 That certainly sounds a lot lighter and managable than most wings.

It's so much lighter than any other frames. lol, even though they do saw holes in your arms when on.
