Friday Metrocon: Deutschland's Electrohazard by German-Blood Friday Metrocon: Deutschland's Electrohazard by German-Blood
WOOO! I love this photo so much! :la:

Anyway, this is the outfit I designed, created, and wore to Metrocon 2012. I was so happy how this design was able to come to life. The wings definitely made the attire stand out, which is the good thing, cause I was so close to not finishing them in time for Friday. ^^;
A lot of people that day were asking me what I was or who I was cosplaying, so I'll clarify here what my vision was: I initially wanted to do just a simple cybergoth outfit that was themed with colors from the German flag. I ordered my German flag fluffies, made the wig with dreads in black red and gold, blah blah blah, but then I started adding more materials to make it seem more industrial and more...post-apocalyptic I guess? There was a lot of conduit tubing, electrical wires, zip ties, and tape going on at first. lol It seemed like my cybergoth style turned itself into a rogue experiment-looking creature then your typical stereotype, and soon I added details like a biohazard sign on my duct tape dress (and yes it's a dress made entirely of duct tape and hazard tape), more conduit tubing to the respirator and wig, some glow-stick-like batteries to wear on my back, some caution tape wings, and boom this happened! :omfg:
So what I call officially my "Deutschland's Electrohazard" cybergoth outfit, is also considered my "Nuclear Angel" outfit. :meow:

I went from this ---> to this --->

I actually finished those wings like literally 3 hours before the convention started. lol I'm thinking of redoing them though since they've started to warp slightly.

that's seriously amazing!! it looks like the rush was totally worth it, hahaha~ :D that would be cool though, to re-make them--what are they made out of, if you don't mind me asking...? must have been made out of something pretty sturdy to last the con! :]

I used foamcore board and duct tape, but I'm thinking of just peeling off the tape and using basswood instead.

Aww, thank you very much! :tighthug: I really appreciate the compliment. ^w^
Unfortunately after the con, the right wing started to bend and go limp, so I have to fix it if I ever need to wear it again. ^^;

Urgh! I hope you find a way to keep that wing stable for the long run. Would be a shame to only be a one time wear thing.

I saw a photo with this outfit on a facebook page and I thought "hmm... It like a cybergoth outfit project I've seen on deviantart". The world is so small...

I loved the wings of the costume :D and the detail of the battery was cool too.


Cheers and take care :3

Yup yup! I posted it on one of the cybergoth groups on Facebook, and they featured it in their photo album. I was incredibly surprised when it ended up having 190 likes and 18 shares. :happycry:

Thank you so much! :glomp:
