I dont know if any of you know that every year I go to the Renaissance Festival dressed as a cute lil faerie (aww). I makem y own costume and everything, all down to the wings. Which happens to be my problem.

My past year's wings got thrown out by a certain obsessed mother who was looking twards de-junking the house. So my wings got thrown in the trash can unbeknownst to me sad.gif

So now my problem is coming up with a new design for wings. And I'm horrible at drawing and my best friend kinda ditched me today blink.gif Sooo I didnt get my wing pattern I requested from her.

Anyway! Cut to the point. If any of you would like to take part in the creation of my wings! Feel free to draw a shape for my wings. I'm looking for something pointy and leafy but really rather small. Pixi ish. About 11 inches long for each wing.

And I'll probally be making a few pairs so if my friend happens to give me a call and give me my pattern I'll post a picture of them too tongue.gif

By the way. Anyone else here a faerie?

How about just a a curved frame at the top with chiffon in autum colour hanging from it looking a little raggy to create the leaf effect? Not sure if that makes complete sence to you but it does in my head biggrin.gif

Duddeee, awesome Mata. I might do a pair like that but I'd need different wire cuz mine is.... Well, magenta. O.o

TO THE CRAFT STORE! O.O;;;

(sorry I'm really hyper....)

Oh yea, so.... Cath I totally understand what you're talking about because I've seen it done and I'd have no problem acctually making it.... And I have extra scraps of organza laying around so if I get bored one day and find sturdy enough wire for that type of thing I'll definatley make a pair tongue.gif


But for other pairs of wings I'm making I'm acctually doint something along the lines of a dream catcher, but wing shaped. If any of you have ever learned how to make a dream catcher its really easy and basically just twining wire around in circles and pulling it taut. So I'm doing that, with colored wire inside the frame of a pair of wings and for an extra bit of specialness I have Swarovski crystal beads that I'm putting in there too

O.O Teh shibby!

happy.gif

I am really sorry for my ranting and hyperness but I've had a peice of crap day and I spent the last 5 hours drinking soda, dancing, screaming and singing to Hootie And THe Blowfish so I'm a bit wired.

I'm definatley keen on posting pictures. I like to show off O.O; probally a bad habit.... But I'm lazy and have about another month to get all my projects finished and even then I dont have to have them all done.... so my incentive on getting it done isnt very high....

And I wonder why my grades were low in school? tongue.gif


I really wish I could make Mata's wing design with the lines bold like they're drawn but I cant =(

Atleast.... not any way I've discovered for making wings yet....

Ribbons? A nice, silky, bold black ribbon would do nicely, though I don't know what the wings are made of, so you might not be able to paste them on.

If you make the frame a basic leaf shape with out the spikey edges then cut chiffon (or whatever) (double layer) to the shape Mata drew then run a stich line to the shape of the frame inside the edge of the shape of the chiffon. then use fabric paint or aplique(sp?) to do the leaf veins. (Cath is unsure if she's making sence again)

ARC and Cath both have good ideas but its still sounding too complicated tongue.gif

But I'm going to get some green colored wire soon and start messing around and seeing what I could do....

BTW, Mata, everyone I've shown so far loves your wing design tongue.gif And dad was impressed that a pair of my wings will be specificly designed by the one and only Mata! O.O;

have you considered making just the top of the frame (out of wire with gap filla on the sharp edges) and then sewing fabric of whatever design on so that it would flow out the bottom and would be less bulky.
I think thats how they made the wings in Ever after

Acctually, I have. I've seen it done and look very very nice, but my friend Lynne immediatley said "ew" at it so O.O I've been avoiding that rout.... I will eventually make a pair like that.

But currently I _have_ made a frame for the design Mata drew. The outlines on both edges of the outside and the veins are made out of wire and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it next. If I attatch fabric to it it wont look so nice, atleast not in any way I can think of doing it....

I'll show pictures of the frame once I stop being so lazy.

So I finally bothered to download, resize and put my pictures online. (A grand total of 3 pictures, yay....)

Soo! First is the wings I immortalized into wire:


And then theres the faerie corset I'm still working on:


My personal thought is that the top part of the corset is too small for my size chest unsure.gif but my friend and costume consultant says it looks fine *huffs*

I still need to do the grommeting and finishing the seam binding but I think it looks pretty damn awesome! Aside from the top part....

And if you're wondering about what happened to the third picture well it ended up being this:


Appy pollie loggies in advanced if the pictures are rather large

That's looking great - the corset is a really classic design. biggrin.gif

As well as finished wings - we want to see the ENTIRE outfit when it's on. *noddles*

I'm really really thinking about turning the corset into an underbust.... Or some sort of better looking demi cup.... lol

And the wings need some sort of filling tongue.gif

But I'm going to my friends house hopefully within the next week so I plan to fix that stuff over at her house.... la la la....

Thanks for the butterfly, Snugglebum o.0 I think happy.gif

This is just a kind of random idea I came up with.
Have you ever thought of using this stuff to fill in the frame might be expensive and you'd probably need alot to fill in the large space but I think it'd look stunning.

Wow.... I've never seen anything like that before. Then again, I've never looked. I would love to use that stuff tongue.gif If I can find a reasonable place to procure it from then I'll definatley use that tongue.gif

I was acctually reading a tutorial on faerie wings that uses liquid scuply (liquidified polymer stuff I'm supposing?) but they would turn out way to brittle that way, but this stuff looks stronger....

Soooo pretty... I love that corset. Did you make or buy and alter or just buy?

How is it that it's impossible to get a corset in the UK and you guys have such pretty things? sad.gif

Acctually I did make it myself, from scratch. I even made my own pattern (with help from a friend)

Link to pattern-making tutorial:

http://www.darkleather.com/corsetmaking2.htm

And obviously it wasnt instructions for over-bust.... which was the problem. The friend that was helping me didnt draft in the bust from a pre-made corset pattern like she did for her corset thus.... mine ending up wonky. It wouldnt have worked anyway.... its too short and I.... uumm, grew.... since I made the pattern.... o.o

I'm really thinking I should just turn it into underbust tongue.gif

The wings look amazing as they are, but og course, putting some sort of skin over them will just top it.

I was thinking, would using say this plastic film stuff that can be clear and transpareant or coloured and transparant (bit like acetate, but not as thick, but thicker than clingfilm), with a load of PVA glue (maybe with some irredesent paint, or powder mixed into give it a pearly sheen) work? Or maybe tissue paper coated (again) in quite a few layers of PVA work? -Or would that be to delicate still?

And yease, piccies!
