Winter Wings by FaeryAzarelle Winter Wings by FaeryAzarelle
Aluminum wire framed wings with iridescent blue film. I made these a couple years ago to go with my Winter Fairy costume for Christmas season gigs.

*my wings' photos are not stock! You MUST ask permission if you want to use my wing photos in your photo manipulations. Using them as reference only for paintings is okay:)

Hello,

I hope this isn't a rude question, I certainly do not mean to offend, but would you mind if I asked how you make your wings? I'm sure people ask you this all the time, and I don't mean "can I have a step-by-step!??" but rather, what materials do you use to make the wings strong and stable. I see this one says film. I'm a bit stumped how to go about trying a pair of my own for my trip to the Ren Faire this weekend; I'm brainstorming paper and wire at the moment because it's what I have (cheapcheap). But I completely respect if you'd rather not divulge your processes-I imagine it takes a bit of the magic and "wow factor" out of your craft if you tell people.

Absolutely beautiful work, btb! Thank you for sharing your gallery.

Guh. I can't even master miniature ones for my dolls... *repeats after self, I need to lose much weight before I can dress up as a fairy* I'll be back to buy shinies if I ever make the cutoff ;)

You are sublimely talented! You have truly inspired me to try and make some wings myelf - even tho I'm prepared to fail at my attempt! :D Truly, I think your wings would make it easy to believe in flight - they look so real and perfectly suited for flying! You would make any butterfly jealous. :) :butterflytwo:

Your wings are stunning! I'm struggling making teeny tiny wings for my OOAK dolls so I am quite in awe of your full sized one! :clap:

Are they attached to the costume or do they fix on with some sort of strap arrangement? I'm intrigued!

These did not have straps, they just slip into the back. The dress or bodice has to be tight fitting of course:)
Most of the wings I make do have clear elastic straps.

That's a brilliant idea, slotting them into the bodice, because straps can be uncomfortable sometimes, can't they. I'd never have thought of slotting them into the back of the dress :D

Your creations are truly of another world, and for some disillusionised by this world, your creations offer many smiles and yet more dreams. Thank you. :aww:

That's one cool thing about fairies though, you can be a fairy at any age. Even though in popular art they are usually really young looking pixies, but Brian Froud's art has quite a few fae that aren't the typical young ';pretty' ones:)
