So in march I'm planning to do Bloom Tynix from Winx, but I'm lost on the wings.
My granddad is helping me out with the frame, which is made from copper wire. We're currently making a prototype for the back plate, though I'm not sure how to attach the wings to them.
This is the system we're making for the back plate:
These will be the wings:
Does any of you has ideas on how to make these, so that they're sturdy enough to prevent flopping down or breaking? I thought of plexiglass, but it shattered when we tried to cut it. Also, I thought of covering them in fabric like chiffon, but there will be jewels sewn on the wings to mimick the effect of ''crystals''.
I've looked at the live-action/reunion wings, but I have NO idea what materials they used.
