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:

This tutorial is wonderful, thank you so much! I'm actually working on making these right now for my Supernatural cosplay, and I had a question, if you don't mind.
For the fabric base I was a little confused because you said you just had one base for each wing, and it was needed because the foam won't glue to itself. But if the wing is put together, as it looks, starting from the longest layers and then getting shorter as you layer them ontop, I don't quite understand how that was done without having a layer of fabric between each layer of foam. I hope this made sense!

No problem :))
We've cut the top of each layer, so basically there is one layer of foam everythere, thay overlap just a little bit, so that the fabric would not peek through the "feathers". Does it make sense now? =___=

Yes, I've got it now! I see where you explained that now, but I must have looked it over in the tutorial! Thank you so much for responding :)
