Feathers for wings

Ok, I need HUGE feathers for a pair of wings i'm making for A-Kon... they need to be stark white, broad across, and... err... about 8 inches or so in length. I tried looking for some similar at rainbowfeatherco.com, but they have nothing like what I need. I KNOW I've seen feathers like these before, I just can't find them when I finally need them ;_;. Help? Please? Anyone know where I can get some?

Oh, and yes, I know I can trim the feathers to the right shape. :P

P.S. - See attachment for a pic of the costume.

ok I don't remember the name of the company but I can call my friend tomorrow and ask her to ask her brother the name. But I do know the company is in washington and they have right and left feathers that are huge.

When I made my yuna wedding dress...i went to the costume shop a bought a pair of those crappy angel wings....then I just ripped all the feathers off of that....if you do it carfully none of the feathers get ruined cause they are just glued on cardbored and they are NICE and long....
works VERY well ^_^

I highly recommend Rainbow Feather in Vegas - they are some of the most helpful people I've ever talked to. They can help you find just what you need, and their customer service is fantastic.

I wish I had that kind of money to blow on cosplay. Really.

Look for turkey feathers. Those are very broad and long. You can find them bleached to white. I used them for the tertiaries (i.e. the feathers closer to the body.) You can see them in this pic of my wings.

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto....2&thecat=50 0

And if you want them pointier just trim them with scissors till they're the shape you want. It's really easy. I had to trim mine because of damage done at a con.

These wings are small, just hand held size. But I had to cut down the feathers in question, so you shouldn't have a probem getting them long enough. Oh and I just bought them at a craft store and payed $1.99 per package of 4. I don't know if that'll help any. Good luck.

I was actually looking at those... I would need 3 packs, and then the smaller feathers that look identical for the filler work. Thanks!

those wings that you need dont need any feathers. using feathers will only make them look more different.

Nah. Stuffed wings look weird. Maybe if I was doing Sakura or something, but not Marron.
