X-Wing Fairy


If we met at Baltimore Comic Con, and you reached this page via QR code–hooray for technology! I’d be grateful if you could share any photos that you have of me. Email me at gls[dot]themaker[at]gmail[dot]com or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Thanks in advance!


My X-Wing Fairy started out as a regular fantasy fairy design with the intent to use Wonderflex and LEDs but quickly jumped to Techie-CyberFairy. During wing design, they morphed into the X-Wing. It was a crazy night.

The flight vest corset was made by the amazing Mayfaire Moon.

I used the Rebel Legion‘s costuming standards to design the peasant top and cargo skirt.

The wings were based on an X-Wing model, but I fudged some of the dimensions for comfort and general proportions. I’ll call it Chibi-X-Wing. The finished product is made of foam core board, craft foam, floral foam, Smoothfoam, wooden dowels, cardboard, and a lot of hot glue. I sealed with three coats of gesso, primed, used a tan base coat, and added painted details as necessary.

If you have any questions about specific items, please let me know. I’m happy to share.

Thanks again for stopping by!
