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 ^^;;;;;
