On Wings of Gold by Jolien-Rosanne On Wings of Gold by Jolien-Rosanne
So I didn't exactly know what to say, except for "I love you" when photographer Eric send me this picture. His timing composition and everything is so amazing!

As you can see my wings worked this time around. Made a completely new support system and now its wind, walk, and even jump proof!

The costume, mask, jewellery, wings and basket are handmade by me. Check out the rest of my gallery for more info about this costume :).

Taken saturday at the Castlefest 2009!

On Wings of Gold by *Jolien-Rosanne. The suggester wrote, "This gown is subtle and elegant, which very nicely sets off the centerpiece of this costume, the incredible wings. The choice of background and colors from the basket of fruits to her hair all blend in a way that seem to epitomize the season itself." Also suggested by ^PorcelainPoet.

Thanks so much! I'm asking since I plan on making huge wings for a castiel cosplay, but all the big feathers I found were far too fluffy, not long and smooth OAO

How did you make them "jumpproof"? xD

:iconjolien-rosanne:
Jolien-Rosanne Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
thank you :). I made a really strong armature for the wings, strong as in: If it was bolted down good I would bolt it down even more, just to make sure it would hold the massive weight of the wings. And with that I discovered I could even jump up and down with them without them bending, moving etc. Which was a nice side-effect :).

Oh, I see. how did you fasten them to your back? They must've been really heavy..

I created a backpack construction using a pvc plate with leather straps. The Iron rods of the wings are then bolted down on the pvc plate. Hope it helps :).

:iconjolien-rosanne:
Jolien-Rosanne Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
thank you! My biggest tips would be: Build a sturdy frame and study feathers on birdwings before gluing your feathers to the frame. They contain short and long feathers, so use different sizes. It will look more realistic!

Those wings are just awesome. :wow: Wish I had a pair just like them. Last pair of wings I wore literally lasted 1 day, then they had to be tossed from to much damage. ugh

O I hate when that happens :(. Luckely I can say that these wings have endured events and storage for the last 2 years and I can even jump with them on without breaking/tipping over etc. <3
Seeing all the autumn colors really inspires me to wear them again.
