Wings (Posted 28th November 2011)
The feathers for the wings were made out of mountboard and held together by a black black base. in the middle of the black plastic wire comes out which I then made a ring shape to fit around my shoulders. Leaving the wire exposed ran the risk of cutting or digging into my arm so I decided to cover the inside segment with a layer of cushion foam. Then both parts were covered with the antique gold pleather.
Using this technique avoided the need for a backpack or having a central bar. They are a little uncomfy - well one is and the other fits brilliantly? But I really like the fact they bob up and down when I walk - I think that looks really cute.
