But where did you get those feathers? I need familiar ones if I'm going to make Maleficent's wings!
These wings measure about a foot and half wide each. I'd probably go smaller for FLuttershy since Gilda's wings are a bit bigger than the ponies. Also, no one has asked this one yet, lol!
And the wire is on.
I have some question. If you can answer that'd be great!
I still don't understand how you make the back support and keep it down to your back. Can you explain more?
Also, how did you get your wings through your clothes without showing your support and straps?
Is it heavy at all?
My Gilda wings are attached to the back of the jacket with glue and then covered with the match fabric, and straps are coming through the inside of the sleeves. Others ways to make you support stay are by using magnets (create a pocket inside the outfit with the other end on the wing support) or wire slots (done very much like corset boning, only you're sliding the actually wing wires into the slots of the outfit)
Hope this helps!
Thanks for any advice you could give
Perhaps you could build it as a shoulder harness instead? If it were me, I would build the wings right into the collar part and bring the wiring all the way to the front, or not put wiring at all and just use the diamond mesh alone. Also, making the front area heavier will help balance it all!
Hope this helps!
I don't quite understand what you did for the back of the wings. Did you just put fabric over it or did you repeat the feather process? I'd really appreciate a reply, because right now I just have open mesh on the back that I don't quite know what to do with. Thank you for this fabulous tutorial! It's really made my cosplay come together!
