I am currently working on my own design for wings. Here's a tip for any potential wing designers who are in college...
Make friends with a student in the engineering department. Trust me on this. They will steer you in the right direction.

Um, don't mean to sound stupid or noobish or anything, but materials do you use for the non-pulley/movable wings? Thick wiring and ....canvas?? O_O yeah, I'm THAT much of a newbie.
What materials do you use? How would you make just ONE wing for a costume?

Wow.

Thank you for posting this (very) comprehensive guide.


A question: Do the wings stay out when you've extended them with the pulleys? Like for pictures and such. I'm thinking of making a sivak costume (not quite cosplay, I know ) and I'd be carrying around a sword, so having my arms at my sides would be difficult for posing...

Maybe attaching the ends of the cords to my upper arms would do it.
Hmm...

Wow.That is a great idea.What materials would you use if you want the wings to look like this:

I've been trying to think of ways to make them.I like your design of moving wings.

Maybe pvc and something satiny? I think that they would work with the pulley system...

Thanks for the guide!

Yes, thread bump!

Anyway, out of curiousity, I was wondering if people could tell me how long it takes to make wings of all different types and sizes.

This tutorial Seems great!

I'm planning on doing a Sephiroth cosplay, with his one wing. So do you guys think I could just have one wing? Or would it be really unbalanced and annoying?

And I would also like to know if they stay extended?

Thanks very much!

Here's another hint that might work for some people. Take a peak at the workings of porch/deck umbrellas.

I didn't run through all the links just yet (or read all the post yet to be honest *sweatdrop*), but I was wondering if you did moving fairy wings. Cause I'm trying to cosplay as Sugar and Pepper from the anime A Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar, and their wings are pretty basic, so I was thinking of trying to make them move. Any help?

I did a pair of CS2 Sasuke wings, using a pair of motors, but it would be exceptionally simple to convert the design over to mechanical if you'd like to see the schematics. ^.^
