Everyone has either hand made wings or ones they have bought. dose anyone know how to make the wings with the really long white feathers like the ones they have in Angel Sanctuary?

I've made wings before! They were for a Kamui (X/1999) costume, but they had long white feathers. First I made a frame with thick wire, then I covered that with white material.... Hours and hours later I had all the feathers glued on in a nice wing pattern. I bought 12-14 inch turkey pin feathers (I think the cost was around $30/pound, which was around 200 feathers and I didn't even use half), most I had to cut smaller. It takes forever, but it isn't that hard. Lots of glue. Lots of feathers. Lots of patience. I think there's a piccy or two on my webpage (bottom link in my signature)!

I did something similar for the wings in my Ocarina costume... i actually bought a pair of wings originally, but they were too small (i needed them a bit bigger then me @.@), so i extended them a few feet with a thick cloth and wire, and added LOTS of 12-14 inch turkey feathers... and i burned myself with the huge industrial glue gun WAY too many times >_o owchies.
LOTS of patience. lots and lots.... and remember to pad them at your shoulder so any elastic or whatever doesnt cut into your skin - ive got scars from my evil elastic ^^;;;;;
