White Angel Wings by starbright2040 White Angel Wings by starbright2040
Amazingly Huge!
These are about 3 1/2 feet tall. I made the the big feathers at the bottom out of fabric because I have not been able to locate any birds big enough to donate real ones...
They are not very heavy but because of the size and to prevent sliding, I made a fully adjustable 4-point harness. My next version will be slimmed down and just have shoulder straps.

Reallt pretty!
And since you havn't been able to locate feathers big enough for the bottom ones I won't either for Maleficent. Do you have any tips on how to make them? :D

Beautiful! Have you made a simpler version of these wings, ones with just straps? If so, how much would you charge for one? :3

This particular pair is $275. I can make smaller (and lighter) versions that vary in price. My small wings-think child size- are $65. The medium size looks good on teens and adults and they are $70 to $85 depending on style. You can check out a few styles here [link]

omgosh, I wish these were a lil bigger and I would totally find a way to get/spend the money on these. They would be perfect for a costume Im working on! You have some amazing talent, when did you get into wing-making? oh and would you ever consider making a tutorial for one of these? :3 that would just be too cool. -+favs-

Thanks! I've been making wings for a little over 4 years. Not quite ready to do a tutorial on these, but maybe someday!
I can make custom wings to any size, so contact me if you are interested.

Do you take commissions?? I would LOVE to buy this harness from you (or one similar), because I don't know how to go about making my own. I would buy the wings as well, but I want mine to fan out via a hidden string pulley system, so a friend of mine was going to design that part, based on my concept art:

Please let me know; I desperately need a harness! (And if for some reason my friend can't make the articulated wings, I would like to go try to commission some static ones from you, if possible.)

Hi,
I could definitely help you out. Email me at firebird@upfromtheashespa.com
I have been working on a pair of movable wings, but they have kinda taken a back burner to some other projects. Your ideas are very creative!

Are you selling the Harnesses? It would really be a help to me if you are, or could list the place where you got supplies for yours or the harness itself. ^^

If you ever end up making ones with a simpler design for wearing, I'd definetlly be interested :D Even a smaller angel design would be cool! How much did it cost to make that? o_o;

I have a Fairy Festival coming up in May so I am going into production overtime! I will try to get some pics up of my new (and smaller!) wings soon!
Cost? Ugh. The key was finding a company that sold feathers wholesale: craft stores sell you 5 feathers for $2-4 a pack! I probably spent upwards of $100 on material, and that does not account for time. I hope to make the newer versions less costly and less pricy!

Wow that is pretty expensive, but for this quality its not that bad at all! It could've been alot more expensive. I look forward to seeing the other designs and purchasing in the future from you :3 Have a great time at the Fairy Festival coming up!

Awesomeness.

I've been looking for a good wing costume example. This one looks perfect.


I would say turkey feathers for the long ones, but I don't think you can bleach them.

Those are amazing! :wow:
The fabric feathers look very real (in the thumbnail they look very real and I was wondering where on earth did you manage to find such a huge bird! :D) and I really like how you've covered the back of the harness in feathers too.

Simply fantastic work!
