How we did it: White feather mechanical wings with LEDs

This time we will tell you about how we produced our large cosplay white feathers movable wings costume with LEDs, from ideas and sketches up to implementing the final look and manufacturing the costume itself.


From the very beginning...

We got an order from the customer to create movable white feathers wings with LEDs.
We have already created big black moving mechanical wings for adults, so this time we should add LEDs and change the color of the feathers.
Their main advantage is the opportunity fold or unfold them with the touch of a button, which is in your hands. The LEDs glow and allow you to remain visible in the dark.

Large cosplay white feathers movable wings costume with LEDs attract attention on stages of all sizes, including nightclubs or open-air settings during dance shows, meeting guests, and positing near photo zones. With ETEREshop mechanical wings with LEDs you will have enough time to run your show, as they work 2 hours on batteries. If you want to increase working time we can add additional batteries on your request.

See how we created large white feather mechanical wings with LEDs:

We have great experience in creating similar goods of different shapes for adults

After collecting a number of ideas we created a rough sketch of the adult mechanical movable feather wings costume with LEDs.

A frame should be light and easy to use

We have developed 3 designs for large mechanical feather wings with LEDs for the customer to choose from.

The client selected the first option. So we started to develop a detailed sketch.

Stage four is producing a metal frame of the backpack

We ordered the frame of the backpack according to the patterns prepared in advance. During the work, the backpack received some changes. To make it more rigid we made a few holes for linear fasteners. Thanks to the metal frame of the backpack, the load is distributed evenly throughout the whole product.

The metal structure is specially designed so that you can effectively open the construction for your performance or fold for more convenient movement.

When the frame for is ready, we started fastening feathers to the frame. After a huge amount of trials and errors, we made a backpack that fit snugly and tightly to the back and could support their weight.

Feathers are fragile, the fastening should be durable and reliable

Stage five is development of the software model of the base and its attachment to the backpack.

After that we developed method of components fastening

Using the sketches, we began to glue the feathers along the folds of the fabric to minimize the white feather breaking.

The final, sixth stage of the work – adding LEDs and testing of the costume

200 LEDs have been added to the top of the huge cosplay white mechanical  feather wings costume, which allows you to be seen in the dark.

The 200 LEDs on the upper part glow and make them visible in the dark.

See how impressive the white mechanical feather wings look on stage. We used 200 LEDs to make them glow and radiate. And the backlight makes the performance more vivid and fascinating. At the same time, these big mechanical feather wings for adults make the performing actor soft and magical.
