Hey cosplayers!
So, Im planning on cosplaying as Suu from Clamp's Clover for my local con this year however not entirely sure what I am going to do for my wings.
I think I am going to save some time and buy some feather wings and then add on to them... but i am not sure how to do that. You see I want to get gears, cogs, bolts and things to add to them making them more industrial like but I really dont know how to attach them in a smart way hahaha

Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks! :)

Also, here are the wings I might be using---> [url][/url]

To me, the wings in the picture don't really look like feathers. They look more like a kind of decorative piece. You could try making the 'feathers' out of thicker white craft foam, like [URL=""]this tutorial [/URL]shows. Hers are modeled after real wings, but you can always just apply the method to yours.

I've seen sue wing done with craft foam or foam board the mimic the metal structure of the wings.
