Description
So, this has been planned for ages, but I'm procrastinating doing any more on the wings for the moment to post this.

Problems so far:
Getting wings of a size I'm happy with to not collapse.
Getting the people I bought the satin off to send me it.
Getting over my mental block about that lining. WTF?

Crossing fingers I can get it done for Minami, this is definitely my most ambitious project yet. Props to Dez for the design, as with all the brawlers!

I'm pretty glad that last thing on your 'to do' list is low priority!

Wing Fail (Posted 16th February 2010)

So, attempt number two at the wings: Attempt one proved too flimsy to hold up their own weight.
Remade the frame using galvanised steel support wire. With any luck this, along with droping some of the size and cutting down on weight by losing the chicken wire base, will allow them to stay up!
The satin I ordered for the body of the costume still hasn't turned up, I'll be sending a non-recieved item complaint to ebay after I post this.
