Hello!  I wasn't sure where to put this but it felt very much sculpture-like while I was building it.  I entered a contest on SuperMediaStore.com and if you like it or find it creative, can you please like it on their page?  I would really appreciate it.  They're giving away and iPad 2 and the deadline is my b-day so it'd be super cool to win!  If I don't win, at least I have an awesome set of wings.   Smiley

Thank you for looking!  

Please like through link?  =) 






I sketched this idea then created it out of CDs, CD cases (the clear part to hold the strands of the wings together), hot glue, fabric and elastic string. It is VERY hard to cut CDs without fracturing them. I used a blow dryer to heat them up at first but then discovered it was easier to let them soak in hot water. It was difficult for me to find so many CDs to destroy errr.. make into something better... otherwise I'd have entered sooner. I love how these turned out and when I shrug or raise my hands, the wings take on a whole new shape. It's very cool.

I didn't fully read the title after I clicked on the thumbnail.  These are pretty amazing and a great way to use old cds.

Thanks!  I appreciate it.  It took about 20 CDs of mine and friends that we no longer used.  =)

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.
