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 :)

РУССКАЯ ВЕРСИЯ - ЗДЕСЬ

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

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I've always wanted to make cosplay wings but I have scoliosis, so my back is very weak.

We just saw Maleficent (2014) in the theater today, and my daughter (6 yo) has decided THIS is what she will be for Halloween this year.  (I'm thrilled, I LOVE making costumes!!)  Your solution for lightweight and durable wing material is BRILLIANT!!!  Now - to go find some black PE foam and figure out some sort of harness!!  (Did Erik ever post anything about the harness? If no, I bet I can figure something out)  Thank you for taking the time to make your VERY detailed instructions.

What kind of paint did you use? I need a black wing, but I'm uncertain of the effect of spray paint on the polyethylene. (I know some foams don't like spray paint). I have brush paints, but I'm interested to know the effects and coating of whatever you used since yours look aMAZing ^_^

I am still a bt messed up :( so... What I see on the pictures (the one in the tutorial where I guess erikdesler is wearing a wing) is really only an isolon?(I mean all those layers, those "feathers" are only from ONE LAYER OF ISOLON?) If it is true, do you think it is possible to spray the wing with the black color? It won§t be totally black I guess, right? Thank you for this tutorial! :)

It's from several layers of isolon, as plainly stated in tutorial. AND fabric for the base. 

Can spray in black or any color, sure. But it won't be midnight-black, yeah.

You're welcome.

This might've been answered in the 19 pages of comments, but what kind of paint did you use on them?
