Hi there!
I just finished making my first pair of fairy wings. I used iridescent cellophane, hot glue, glitter, and 12-guage wire. I couldn't really find a tutorial online, so I made it up as I went, lol. They're about 2 1/2 ft tall, and about 3 ft across. I picked cellophane over the type with tights/pantyhose, because, to me, it looks more realistic xD. Anyways...got any tips to make them better?

(BTW, they look a lot better in person, my camera is just really bad xD )

(Sorry about having to post a link...I haven't posted 10 times yet.)

Niiiice! I love the iridescence! If you feel they're missing something, maybe add some butterfly markings? Those glitter-glue pens are really easy to use.
