Costume test by Mashayahana Costume test by Mashayahana
Costume test for Seraphei.

One of my primary feathers on the right wing (left in picture) broke not 5 minutes before this shot, and I couldn't fix it. Boo.

Corset is held in place by my arms, hence the weird shape (not to mention it makes me look huge O.o)

This dress is kind of an 'emergency solution' since I haven't had a chance to create my skirt and sleeves yet for this costume. Figured, hey it works, before the wings fall apart completely, lets take a picture :P

How do you make them open and close?

The wings in this picture were taken apart again, so they don't open and close :P 
But the new version ( fav.me/d803xrr ) opens and closes with a little bolt/pin at the upper joint of the wings. I can push up and out to open then, and pull back in and down to close them.

This picture is from 2012, the costume never happened :P
It was just a test to show off the wings, which were taken apart after as well and have been rebuilt :P

Amazing costume!

I was wondering: Do you take wing commissions? They are gorgeous!

I don't take wing commissions on articulated ones, I might consider smaller, non-articulated wing commissions.

How well did the wings move with the feathers? I've heard that it's tricky to get them layered just right so they don't bunch up or break as the wings bend

Well, with these wings that's exactly what happened, which is why I took them apart again. I'm currently rebuilding them, and so far it's going pretty ok.

Ah, that's what I was afraid of. Because I have to make two sets of these (if not four) for Gabriel and Castiel in two years and I'm trying to find the best way to feather them with this framework without having the risk of them breaking or bending from being folded up.
