How to make Asuna's fairy wings

Wings Wings
I freehanded the design on sketchbook paper. I looked at several photos of her wings to decide on the shape. I used pliers to help me bend the wire. The middle of the wing is a U-shape that slides down into my top.

Then I cut out long rectangle strips from fabric and wrapped it around the wire. If you can do this with felt, it will be easier. I didn't have felt of this color, so I just used leftover cotton fabric.

The wrapped wing looks like this so far. I didn't finish wrapping the U-shape yet.

When I was done wrapping, I cut out the organza fabric (cheap at wal-mart) into the shape of my wing. I made sure to make it bigger than my wing pattern though. This is important because I rolled the organza over twice and then hand-sewed it down. I just sewed a straight stitch. Hot glue may work too, but I live in Louisiana, so I don't like to rely on it too much.

Took me a few hours to finish hand-sewing, but here it is. Since it's made out of wire, the angle of the wings are adjustable. However, since I didn't use straps, sometimes the wings get angled funny.
