I made these wings for this play called "Marisol" and then decided they were so cool that I needed to keep them for myself. I made them out of chicken wire, hangers, and random wires I found at the theatre shop. I then cut different gray and silver strips of fabric and tied them on. They used to be above my bed, but they don't fit there anymore, so they are above my kitchen table.

those are gorgeous!  they sell wings that aren't half as pretty as those at the renaissance festival here for like $200.  if yall have a renfest there, i bet you could look into selling some.  if you're interested, that is.

How cool! Very cool wings Cheesy

Is it the play Marisol by Jose Rivera??

When I was in High School (at a creative arts high school) we did a workshop with him at the san diego modern art museum and then went to see Marisol performed at the La Jolla Playhouse. What a great play Cheesy!

That's the play. I did the costumes for it. The girl we had playing the angel was amazing. I give her major props for wearing these heavy wings ever night. We had to put maxi pads on her shoulders for extra padding! I am very envious of your workshop with Jose. That must have been amazing!

Hi there. Nice job on the wings! Currently, I am an Outreach Liason for the Laramie Project at my college. I am researching on how to make different kinds of angel wings and I came across your pair. I was planning on going an ultra-simple route...any suggestions?

even though the mind of humanity is basically one mind--STILL each and every one of us has to establish his or her own personal, political, particular, unique, one-on-one relationship with reality with the universe and with the Divine. It might be complicated. It might be most of all...lonely.

My way was definitely not the ultra-simple way. It took me close to 36 hours to make these and I got to add some new scars to my body (I forgot to wear protective gloves sometimes). I found this website that used a simple method with pantyhose and thin wire. http://www.monitor.net/~mamazon/wings.html
I used chicken wire and had to make them really big and sturdy...they were quite heavy as well. I'm not sure if there is anything that is lighter than chicken weire out there with possible smaller holes, but if that exists, it's an option. You can try paper mache. If I come up with any more ideas, I'll let you know!
