22nd August 2011: Wings The wire wing frame in progress, basic approach is the same as my first set of wings; the new part is the interior patterns done in wire too.
22nd August 2011: Lining I used two 2m lengths of fairy lights from festive-lights.com. I zig-zag stitched over the wire to secure it all to the lining I had to spend some time planning out how best to arrange the wiring to get the pattern of lights I wanted. I established I could cut the strings of lights shorter at the ends if required, but I needed the lights to start and stop in places, so used tape to hide any of the leds which I didn’t want to show. The picture shows the basic layout of the lights.
22nd August 2011: Shoes I used the shoes from my first Tink costume and removed the pom poms. The pom poms were made from fur fabric wrapped around wadding, so I simply replaced the wadding with push lights. I glued circles of white felt over the lights to help diffuse them. The fur was then sewn back up and reattached (with mostly hot glue but a few stitches as well) to the shoes.
