damianrules: “ I said I’d write up a tutorial on how to make these wings. It’ll be terrible So, here goes. XD Have one or two friends to help you out. It’s easier with more hands. (For small wings you will need 3 pieces.
This woman's tutorial/walk-through on how she made her costume wings is *amazing*. Awesome creativity, and some pretty amazing engineering! Perfect for cosplay (I absolutely have to make a set of these wings)
Wings are a main component of a bird costume, and an easy element to make. The most important parts of a bird wing are the shape and texture. A feathery element attached to the right shape creates a very authentic look. Look at pictures of the specific bird you are making wings for as inspiration for your colors and shape.
