Of course this can be a male costume! My understanding of the phoenix in chinese mythology is that it generally considered the female counterpart to the male dragon, while the western phoenix (what this is based on) is genderless. I'm no mythology expert so feel free to share more on that, I love that stuff.I can't wait to see it! Be sure to post a photo when you're done :)

Battery powered fog machine
Thank you for creating this project! I also fell down this research path and was dumbfounded as to why battery operated fog machines are so extravagantly expensive. I had given up on the idea of integrating fog into a project I have in the queue, but this has given me new hope! Horray!
Thanks for your help making it happen :)
Thanks, feels good to have both pieces finally published!
So far I've only worn it out to a light festival so while some people noticed it, I blended in with the setting. I'm excited to wear it for halloween :)

You are right, I thought they were plastic but the two kinds of boning pictured next to the spiral metal are polyester. As I mention in that step, I am not a fan of either of these types of commonly found craft store boning. Both buckle and warp, and don't work well for curved seams. It's worth the time to order boning online. Plastic has some advantages in that it's easy to cut to length, however a flat stay like this is much better. For curved seams, always use spiral steel bones.
I link to the fiber optics I used in steps 2 and 3.
