Wing harness help needed!
Hey! I'm going to be making a large pair of bat-like wings for the character Hulkling from Young Avengers.

As you can see, his wings just come straight out the back of his shirt~



The wings are going to be made from a light weight plastic-vinyl type material with a wire frame, but they're going to be big (not full wing span, but pretty huge ) so I think they'll need a bit more support than just being sewn directly onto the shirt.

I just needed ideas and tips on how I can keep them on my back securely enough and if anyone has heard of any 'invisible' harness techniques. I'd rather not have straps all over me, but if I had to, I wouldn't mind having something on show at the back, OR the character has a sort of scale-like shoulder armour, so I could always use that to help disguise it. Seen here~




Any advice at all would be appreciated! So far the tutorials I've seen online don't have anything I like the look of and I'd rather get some more knowledge before I start experimenting. :] Cheers!

I really like the way these guys did their wings. I know it also means that it's not just the shoulders that take all the weight but the waist as well making them more comfortable for a long days wear. Also they are detachable so if you need to make a quick dash to the loo you won't need to be wrestling the doorways with massive wings

This tutorial's great. It's really long and detailed and should give you large wings that have invisible attatchment.

Those are fantastic! Thanks so much!

Detachable wings sounds perfect. I think I'll be doing something similar to these guys. I love the disguised and articulated ones so much. They're brilliant suggestions, thank you for the help. :]
