Our customer Meg Turney (www.facebook.com/MegTurneyCosp…) commissioned us to create a pair of resin fairy wings for her heavy metal papillon cosplay from Sailor Moon <3

Over the years I have received a lot of questions on how I make these type of wings. The PDF tutorial is available on my Etsy store (www.etsy.com/shop/FireflyPath) I hope you all like it!

These are pretty neat, may I ask how you made them or are they supported by a wire frame that you've bent into shape?

how did you get them so stiff? I can't seem to descover the secret to good wings and am having a hell of a time getting something maliable enough to get smaller shapes in but sturdy enough to hold shape.  these are simply gorgeous, and very symmetrical. Good work!

Dear Lillyxandra (AKA JoEleen Elam of Firefly Path), I have a question for you: According to your website, is it true that you also make original costumes that are all based on most of the drawings?
'Cuz I think I have plenty of drawings that I must ask my father to send to you during this Christmas, since I saw your store on eBay. :happybounce: 
Thanks! From TFBumblebee1

Holy cow!!!! These wings look gorgeous! I'm dying to do this cosplay at some point in time especially with them hopefully putting her in Crystal.
You did a wonderful job on them. They are going to be so pretty in the sun.

These are so pretty! Meg will love these! I hope they are strong because Gavin might have a 'moment' and I wouldn't want him to break this beautiful creation!

One day I am going to save up enough money and buy a really nice dress from you.
