Hello, I am trying to combine your tutorial with this one: https://www.evilmadscientist.com/2007/umbrella-bat-costume-update-now-more-anatomically-correct/ to make a bat costume with the wings hanging under my arms. Is there any advice you can give on how to do this? I like the mechanical soundness of your tutorial, but I want the same type of silhouette as the bat wing tutorial (attached to a long-sleeved shirt, not a harness). Thank you for your awesome tutorial!
I think all you would have to do would be adjust the length of the fingers to make it look more bat like.
I never got beyond making the wing, so I’m not sure about attaching it to something, but for a shirt I think I would just sow it on with some sort of brace attaching both wings together.
How were you hoping the wings to function? By that I mean did you want them Independent from your arms and supporting themselves?
No problem! Sorry it took so long, my internet connection has been acting up.
I see. Personally, I think I would do something like this:
Where the red indicates the wing being sown to the shirt. I think you could bypass the arm portion of the the wing altogether as your own arm would be doing that job.
I'd like to point out though that the umbrella I used ended up making a very small wing. But it you altered the design I don't see why you couldn't use the entire length of the existing umbrella rib if you want it that big.
