Yay, the wings for my steampunk fairy costume are finished! I love how they shimmer in different colors and how the veins shine through. As always, I want my wings to have the appearance that you could actually fly away with them. Why else would you have wings right?
These beauties are made with 2 layers of iridescent foil/cellophane, 1 layer of vinyl and epoxy resin. The structure inside the wings is made with wire. The wings became too heavy so the edges of the 4 wings are reinforced with steel to keep them sturdy.
The back piece supports the kinda heavy wings just great. I wanted to decorate the lower part too but it just because too much and it was out of balance with the whole outfit.
I am gonna wear these wings to Castlefest in The Netherlands (on 2 August) and later on at a steampunk photoshoot.
Are you sharing these wings on other media? Please let me know, I love to see who shares it and where!
