I haven't been drawing much recently, perhaps I should start up that drawing a week thing again.

Hello! I found the picture of your halloween wings and was really interested in looking at the tutorial, but the link seems to be dead. D: Do you have a working link? They're so pretty!
Psyfira Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, the curse of old links!

Video: [link]

The pictures are missing from the text one, but the video she did is of the same pair of wings so you can kind of piece the two together :)

(I didn't write this tutorial so Emilie Autumn gets all the credit for sharing how to make these awesome wings with the world. Just realised that wasn't clear from my deviation description, oops!)

Thanks very much for replying ^^

Even if it wasn't your design, per se, you still executed it beautifully! They look amazing!

Umm... Hi... I don't really know you and you don't know me, but I was hoping that I can ask you a few questions. I see that you have made some fairy wings and I wanted to ask what would you recommend to use, fabric or stockings? You see I wanted to make something similar to the vocaloid's magnet song headphones with wings and was planning to use stockings and spray paint, but i read that you found it easier to use normal fabric so I wanted to make sure. The wings should be less than 20cm.

sorry for the long comment

Hiya, no worries I'm no expert but I'm happy to help :)

The good thing about stockings is that they're cheap, so there's nothing to stop you giving it a try once you've built the frames to see if stretching them over the frame works :)

For the vocaloid set I think the top wing would be fine, but the long swallowtail point on the bottom wing might give you some trouble, it might not be wide enough to stretch a pair of stockings out.

Also, consider how the stockings are going to fit over your frame, you need to tie a knot to close them at the end. If you make the wing in 2 pieces (upper and lower) these knots will hide behind the headphone which is perfect. However if you're making the whole wing out of a single piece of wire the closing point might end up in a visible place. Which isn't the end of the world (I have a set like this) but it's something to consider.

Thank you for the advice and for reminding me that the vocaloid wings had that long end -_- I think i might just leave it out, they will never know :D
