Question Quadsuit (Dragon) Wings

So, I am making a Toothless quadsuit, and pretty much know how its all gonna be done. However, the only thing that is stumping me a bit are the wings. I know in a quadsuit they are slightly different then when in a fursuit. I kinda have an idea but, and still a bit unsure how to go about on it. I've seen other quadsuit vid's with wings and such but, like I said, I'm still a bit unsure. I am planning to make them out of pvc.

Anyone whose made a quadsuit (with wings) know how to construct/go about building them?

NOTE: I don't want to make moving wings! (I know kinda the opposite of most people) but, eh, that's how I wanna do it. Tis my first quadsuit after all. :P

Any help will be much appreciative.

(And if you wanted some ref pic's by any chance here are some):

(Bump). So, at this point I think I know what I'm gonna do. But, regardless I'd still like some input on this just to make sure I'm going in the right direction. Anything at all will be helpful.

Most costume suits I've seen have a harness with a pvc joint on their back/backpack like support and the pvc wings connect to the support.

The person who is famous for making a toothless quadsuit has a deviantart here . She was selling it for a tidy sum not too long ago, but its already probably been snapped up for $3200. However, I am suggesting her because she may be willing to tell you how she constructed the wing harness in her quadsuit. And she can probably give you pointers on what NOT to do, as per her own experiences. I'd give her a shot.
