How many feathers should I use?

For my Ryuk shirt, I'm having a rather hard time deciding whether or not I'm happy with the amount of feathers; is it good, or should I use more?

Ref: http://imagenes.axomex.com/images/riuk.png

(Please excuse the massive mess in the foreground XD)


(Also, I just added the hooks tonight; I didn't forget them.) I think that Ryuk is one of those costumes where overkill might be a good thing? What you're seeing here is a total of 50 feathers, and they're really cheap so getting 50 more would be easy. Yes, no...?

Thanks for all opinions!

Greetings Khorrupt,

I think they look *very* cool! Personally, I feel like a few more wouldn't hurt, but I don't think I'd double the amount you have already. I think they would best be added in the area at the very front and back, and probably shorter than the ones on the upper shoulder. I feel like that's where there's a bit of a "gap" in the look. Hope I helped a bit!

Wow those look really good so far! I would add some more to kind of fill it out a bit more but I don't think you'd need to use as much as you originally used, maybe half that? Just enough to touch up the shoulder area and maybe a few more in the lower middle area.
