You can? Well that makes sense. I do have a small burning tool that is used to adhere rhinestones, I suppose that will work.

What I think I will do.. looking at the images, because there are 3 layers of feathers layer 1 and 3 will be foam and layer 2 will be felt. The wings will be foam and I will try that shaping technique. I will have to experiment with adding some detail to the feathers. Since it is a more or less simple dress I think that some details may be alright but not to go overboard because it would take away from it. So I think layer 2 and 1 will have more detail progressively. Ah so much to think about. Now since we are having crazy rain I may start Hex today. I will need some flowly fabric as seen in trailer .
When in doubt: Duct tape it.
