Attaching wings to a bodysuit.
Hey folks.

Im starting to look at how Im going to work things out for my Demon Form cosplay, and one part is bugging me at the moment.

Im thinking that for the upper body/skin, I'd use a body-suit (Rather then selectively placed material and white body-paint)
But Im going to be having wings for the costume, but I cant see how Im going to have them fit onto the costume, short of wearing a harness under the body-suit with something attached the the wings can be clipped/slotted into.

Does anyone have any reccomendations?

You certainly are going to need a harness of some sort. Just attaching them directly to the bodysuit won’t hold them up. Maybe only very small, light wings would be possible without a harness.

I can’t really tell from the reference, but assuming you’re wearing a bodysuit, that presumably means your shoulders will be covered, and you can use shoulder straps to support the wings, which is usually the easiest method. You can add a strap going around your chest too if needed. Then just holes in the back of your bodysuit for the wings to go through. An alternative to straps is a steel boned corset underneath, which will support wings nicely.

It all depends on the weight of the wings what support is necessary. Provided they’re light enough, you could try magnets. Wear a backpack of sorts under the bodysuit, with one set of magnets, then the other set in side the wings. That way there’s no need to cut any holes in the bodysuit to attach the wings through. Otherwise, you need to sort out some way to securely slot in the wings.

Hmm, thats actually along the lines of what I was expecting it to come down too.

Thanks for the link, should help me get the right stuff at least.
