Felt Wings .:. Black and White by Kamakru Felt Wings .:. Black and White by Kamakru
Re-submission from old account
------------------------------------------------------------
These were the very first pair of felt wings that I made. <3

I made them for Halloween one year, bought a Red Bull energy drink and went as that. "Red Bull gives you wiings" hahaha. I know it's pretty lame x]

I couldn't afford feathers as big as I wanted, so I had to figure out another material I could use to make the feathers - Stiffened Felt!

They took me about 16 hours to make (partially including the time I took ripping apart and re-doing parts as I figured out how to put it together), but it was worth it! They only weigh 1 or 2 pounds and are super easy to wear and they're also posable to some extent. The wingspan is about 5 feet.


Quick info for you curious folk
~ Please don't ask me to make a tutorial...I don't have one at this time. Sorry about that. ~

Materials:
- Stiffened felt. I buy this from crafts stores or online, pretty much wherever I can find colors I like. It comes it stiff sheets, I don't do it myself. 
- Heavy gauge wire, like from a hardware store
- Hot glue
- Ribbon, needle and thread (or whatever you want for the straps)

Please feel free to try out your own felt wing designs. I own my patterns, not the actual idea of making wings from felt. However if you do create your own pair of wings inspired by mine, I always appreciate a mention ^_^

I would love to try and make these wings for myself so that I can use it for my cosplay stuff! I'm favoriting this for future use when I need to make a pair of wings.

Thank you so much! I think the felt offers some nice advantages over real feathers (although disclaimer: I've never worked with real feathers) =]

The way you designed the angle and structure of the wings really makes these work out well! I agree, that they came out much better than the many sets that you can buy.

Oh, I remember a long time ago that I found a tutorial on how to make wings like these.
In fact, this picture seems very familiar to me.
Have you made a tutorial on how to make these? It would be very helpful if you uploaded it :O

Yep that's how these are done - every feather is cut individually. Make sure you have a good pair of scissors or it'll give some nasty hand cramps lol
