293  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Pixie Wings from hangers and old stockings! on: September 30, 2007 08:49:35 PM
acually i haven't made wearable wings, just used the same basic construction to make nylon and wire butterflies... but i have made soldered wire wings in a spider web style... you need the elastic and something in the center that sorta props them up, kinda like the fin on the back of a picture frame... making a wider center and wrapping it in ribbon or fabric works fine, you did a good job! when you make your bat wings i highly suggest you try it with fabric, just make the wire shape you want and transfer the outline to paper as a template and cut 4 pieces of fabric (see thru or not, whatever you choose) about a quarter to a half inch bigger all around for seam allowance, and sew together... then sew about 2 to 3 inches from the base all the way around to the other end about 2 to 3 inches from the base (you're leaving enough open so you can stuff the wire in after you sew) when you make the wire part leave about 6-10 inches of wire tails on each side of each wing and make wide curls to act as a prop (like the fin on the picture frame) then sew the opening up and wrap the exposed wire in ribbon or glue flowers or fabric over it...  i hope that makes sense, if not message me and i'll try to be more clear lol

i dunno where you are, but i'm assuming you have a hardware store near ya, buy some spray foam insulation (you'll need to tape any arm/neck holes closed, but it's not necessary to get a water/air tight seal, just no visible holes), it's stable enough to make it less denty (would that even be a word? lol) and it's easy to cut/carve so you can insert a pole, also, you can make the same type of  dress form with an old shirt and duct tape and if it gets dented, the duct tape is easier to undent without messin up the form *i hope that all made sense* you can contact me if you need more info, i'll help anyway i can
