Tutorial: How to make light-weight wings (Kamael) by ElenaLeetah Tutorial: How to make light-weight wings (Kamael) by ElenaLeetah
I've been asked many times how we made our kamael wings. I really didn't plan to write a tutorial EVER, but after 50th questions I gave up.
That’s not the only or best way to make wings, but there were demands, so I comply :)

Wings made by Desler (ErikDesler) and me (ElenaLeetah).
Tutorial made by me :)

Those are our kamaels, thanks to those costumes this tutorial was created:

Hi! these are the most amazing wings I have seen, you did an incredible job!. One question, what thickness was that foam? it looks super thin, almost transparent.

These are the most phenomenal wings I have EVER seen! How did you attach the base fabric layer to the wire base?

Will this work when making Batwings for a Live action Role playing costume character also?

Batwings are done not this way exactly, but I think you can use the principal idea.

Great work on the costumes! I have a quick question, Do you think using the polyethylene foam would work for wings that are articulated? Would the foam bend/crease? 

I'm attempting to make a pair of wings that will open and close, and I have the frame fairly well sorted, but I'm still trying to figure out the best approach for feathers. Any help is much appreciated!

Yeah, I think it'll work, but some altarations are to be made, of course, for articulated wings.
