Wings made by me.
The first wings were generally made of fail and ass. So i threw them away after Ohayocon. Then i remade them using a completely different technique that was based off of a wing tutorial for a Gargoyle costume. The entire skeleton is wood and i glued teddy-bear stuffing onto the frame so that i wouldn't look so "square" Then i sewed a cloth base onto the frame to glue the paper onto. I also had to cut a hole in the back of my coat. its more like a flap and i sewed velcro onto the flap so that i could close again and cover the wood spine peice that i used as a harness.
basically, wings are a pain because you have to do both sides. versus most other things where you can "hide" mistakes with the "inside" of your costume... >.>;
I also remade the flower. (yes its entirely made of paper) and i restyled the wig completely by making a separate bun piece and attaching it to the wig with wire, hot glue and by sewing it on as well. Uhmm.... i think thats everything that i've done to improve the costume. n.n so enjoy!
