haha where to start on this!? the contacts first of all were a PAAAAIN. got them from they're huuuuge and i cant close my eyes for even a few seconds otherwise they'd get stuck in my upper eye lid LOL. it's pretty bad, but those contacts were hell x.x totally worth the pain though *^* other than that! i looooove this cosplay x] it was suuuper comfortable and i think it's my first cosplay with wings? .-. really fun :3 and my wings have wire in them so you can bend them anyway you like baby ;] LULZ. anywho, fantastic photo by the wonderful amazing once again :3333 more to come!!

the wings are attached by a super long black ribbon that was tied at the middle/base of the wings and then was tied around my body making it go over my shoulders kind of and making it match the dress surprisingly xDD. sorry if it's hard to understand >3< but basically the ribbons were tied around my body a few times making it tight and in a way where it does flop down to one side, etc. xp
nope not heavy at all, i used really thin wire but they were also very strong, i also had a small square ish piece of cardboard for support in the middle and i guess kind of like a frame base? i hope that makes sense. i shouldve taken photos of the structure before i put the fabric on but at the same time i didnt think it would turn out so well haha xp
oh dang i might go to both now im really excited cus i heard a lot of good things about them! Here in vegas the cons are not as big and there arnt many good cosplayers. So ala was an eye opener cus there was so many good cosplayers. Ill most likely attend AX, fanime im not yet sure of =]
