yaya-han-etsy-steampunk-wings

Super cosplayer Yaya Han has an Etsy shop filled with awesome accessories for your convention wardrobe. The shop’s latest adorable accouterments “designed by Yaya and lovingly crafted” are these mechanical-looking steampunk wings.

Though the wings look like they are sharp steel-cut blades, they are actually made from lightweight, flexible foam to resist bumping (and slashing) people and walls. So they are perfect for crowed conventions and steampunk events. The layered 3 dimensional design is mirrored on both sides so the wings look amazing from any angle.

Check out all the wing finishes after the jump.

During the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, friends and family pay homage to loved ones that have passed on and help guide their spirit through the afterlife. The festival includes customs of cooking the departed’s favorite foods, building ofrendas, and making decorated sugar skulls in honor of Mictecacihuatl, the Lady Of The Dead.

Inspired by this beautiful tradition, California-based photographer Tim Tadder created a stunning photo series called ‘Las Muertas.’ His subjects adorn intricate makeup from artist Krisztianna and evocative costumes from designer Julia Reeser.

Macabre and mezmorizing, check out more pics from the series after the break.

electric-cosplay-cyberpunk

Etsy seller Electric Candy Couture makes wild cosplay accessories from laser-cut acrylic. This impressive “Paleotron Spine” has nearly 50 individual vertebrae held together with stainless steel split rings.

Using chains clasped by a circular gate ring, the spine below your hips allows for free movement to “whip” the tail back and forth. And the acrylic pieces are glow-in-the-dark, but the two battery powered black light LEDs included provide an awesome additional glow effect in any dark space.

“Electric Candy Couture fuses neon with Neolithic to blend ancient themes into futuristic fantasy. It’s innovative costumes and distinct accessories evoke a fantastic other-worldliness where acrylic is transformed by robots and lasers into an iridescent shimmer of color edged by a glint of articulated steel. Wearers of Electric Candy Couture are transformed into epoch-bending visions of radiance evoking surrealist urban nomads and hallucinatory tribal superheroes.”

This Etsy shop makes spines, valkyrie helmets and even fairy wings. Check out more glowing pieces after the break.

armor-leggings-dresses-underwear

Etsy shop Mitmunk has answered our call for sexy armored fashion in breathable, comfortable polyester-spandex fabric. And the sharp detailing is actually dyed right into the material so the colors won’t fade.

“The artwork is beautifully rendered and printed onto the fabric by the artist himself. Details and shading enhance the vividly coloured armour plates. Elements are carefully placed on the garment to be flattering for the body when worn. Side seams are overlocked for stretchiness and durability.”

The shading is really what brings the details to 3 dimensions. And Mitmunk has dresses in bionic styles as well as armored panties. There’s even armored underwear for guys!
