Demon Wing Tutorial by nolwen Demon Wing Tutorial by nolwen
At last, here by popular demand and just in time for Hallowe'en, the wing tutorial! :boogie:

I'm sooo very sorry this has taken me FOREVER to finish. I'm not really that good at making tutorials, and I hope it's not totally confusing.
Please try and ignore all the typos and spelling mistakes.

If it really doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.

Again sorry for it taking forever. My apologies.

I am currently using your tutorial to make a pair of wings for a photoshoot that I have tomorrow. I'll be sure to share the results! Thank you SO much for this tutorial <3

Okay so i have down the basic premise of how im going to make my flutterbat wings thanks to this tutorial and another. Saw you haven't made feathered wings yet so I'll also offer the second tutorial ill be using for anyone who may be doing feathered wings None the less, I do have a question... When we make the wings and we wrap the fabric tight around the wires, if we were to say, bend the wires after completion for added effect like you did in your second picture, would that provide stress on the glue bindings and might accidentally cause it to separate? If that is the case and we plan on bending some of the wires for added effect, should we glue the fabric a little looser? Jw! Thankies! ^-^

I've never had a problem with the bending after gluing.  And I've bent and reshaped these quite a bit.  The glue paired with the fabric does remain flexible for some time.  

Someday I'd love to make feathered wings.  Thanks for the link! :)

This wire wouldn't be susceptible to bending, would it? (If someone were to bump into the wings.)

Thanks so much! I think I'll modify the vest idea for my giratina cosplay.

Curiosity, do you have to wrap all the wire or only the parts shown in the photos?
Actually, do you need to wrap at all? What is the exact purpose of wrapping the wires?
Also, how did you harness your wings?
I will be wearing a tShirt for my cosplay and was wondering if you would have any tips.
