Rito Mother - ECCC 2011 by Sunnybrook1 Rito Mother - ECCC 2011 by Sunnybrook1
I have many long-term projects on the back-burner w/my job-search going on, so when I heard a few days ago that the Emerald City Comic Con was going on a scant 2 hours north of me, I was inspired to do something a little crazy~

Concept: I love birds (specifically birds of prey, ka-kaaa) and have always wanted to play a Rito from the Zelda: Wind Waker series. Not a specific Rito, just someone with similar characteristics. So I threw this together in about 18 hrs (stayed up all night, I did) and had some fun wandering around the con on Saturday. :D

Feet are cut off in this photo, but next time I'll buy yellow knee-socks & stripe them for the "bird feet" effect...:shakefist:

Wings:The wings took the longest of all (though still lightspeed compared to my fabric ones) and are made of posterboard, hangerwire, and liberal amounts of hot-glue. The feather-shapes & silhouette is pulled directly from the game, wanted to color them but ran out of time.

They're crazy light and look great, but the secondaries kept falling off the elastic (note: clothespins aren't strong enough). Otherwise it was awesome to finally go from zero (no wings) to a hundred (full-spread!) in a few seconds & surprise some con-goers~

Thank you & goodnight~ :faint:

*takes a 2-day nap* :sleep:

NOTE: I have no idea who the Gundam cosplayer is, only that he was stuck up on stilts advertising for Aki-con(?).
