At last, here by popular demand and just in time for Hallowe'en, the wing tutorial! :boogie:

I'm sooo very sorry this has taken me FOREVER to finish. I'm not really that good at making tutorials, and I hope it's not totally confusing.
Please try and ignore all the typos and spelling mistakes.

If it really doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.

Again sorry for it taking forever. My apologies.

Fantastically helpful tutorial. I'm wanting to do cosplay tutorial videos on my YouTube. Would it be alright if I used your tutorial? I would specify that it is yours in the vid.

Okay so i have down the basic premise of how im going to make my flutterbat wings thanks to this tutorial and another. Saw you haven't made feathered wings yet so I'll also offer the second tutorial ill be using for anyone who may be doing feathered wings None the less, I do have a question... When we make the wings and we wrap the fabric tight around the wires, if we were to say, bend the wires after completion for added effect like you did in your second picture, would that provide stress on the glue bindings and might accidentally cause it to separate? If that is the case and we plan on bending some of the wires for added effect, should we glue the fabric a little looser? Jw! Thankies! ^-^

I've never had a problem with the bending after gluing.  And I've bent and reshaped these quite a bit.  The glue paired with the fabric does remain flexible for some time.  

Someday I'd love to make feathered wings.  Thanks for the link! :)

This wire wouldn't be susceptible to bending, would it? (If someone were to bump into the wings.)

Thanks so much! I think I'll modify the vest idea for my giratina cosplay.

Curiosity, do you have to wrap all the wire or only the parts shown in the photos?
Actually, do you need to wrap at all? What is the exact purpose of wrapping the wires?
Also, how did you harness your wings?
I will be wearing a tShirt for my cosplay and was wondering if you would have any tips.

Hello hello! This may be delayed... buuuuut I made some banging wings (if I do say so myself!) for my Lilith cosplay! :heart:

What do you think? :3
nolwen's avatar
Did I tell you that these are awesome yet? Because they are awesome. The whole cosplay is awesome. I'm glad I could help with it in some small way :-)

Thanks so much! These were the PERFECT wings! 

This was my first cosplay and I knew I needed the wings to be the best part! >w<
I found that clip of the first set of wings on youtube I believe and practically spat tea everywhere! >.>' The wings being flexible is just so perfect! and they were! -dies- I love the way they bob slightly when you walk, it makes them look that much more real! :heart:

I even bent the claws so that I could walk around through the con with them clasping one another. people stopped me just to see the wings spread! XD 

Thanks again! this pattern has not seen the last of me! :P There will be wings! So many more!!!!! :heart: :heart::heart:

I know I am SOOO late to the party, but I'm planning on making a pair for this Halloween. What is the rough length of Chrono's wings?
