So Im going to start of by saying, I've never done anything like this before so i decided the best way to learn was to create the largest most cumbersome wings I could
Im working on making these wings for Skuld from Ah My Goddess
This is my progress so far...
The wing span is roughly 6.5 ft but its pretty light since its made from mostly craft foam and foam-core boards. The feathers will be attached to the brown cardboard which i plan to reinforce with fiberglass.
I was hoping that someone would have some ideas on how to wear wings of this size. Preferably without shoulder straps, visible ones anyways. I know its possible because its been done atleast once before
My original ideas was to reinforce the tab I left at the bottom of the cardboard and use velcro secure it to the outside of the corset, but Im worried it would be to flimsy/wobbly. My other idea was to slip the tab inside the corset between the wearer and the corset with some velcro. I havent tried these yet, but I was hoping you guys had some thoughts or experience.
I have seen this...
But I would prefer not to use the flag bracket method. I just want to find stealthier wing mounting solution.
