How did you make your wings for your Castiel & Dave cosplay?
I very loosely followed this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62jhoXa4ckI Instead of using body posture I just put rings on the strings and pull on them when I want to extend the wings. Other things I did differently were that I didn’t make an elbow joint so I just have a M shape and instead of a block of wood I used a sturdy backpack. I zip-tied the frame into the backpack and put grommets in to hide the string inside the backpack a bit, For fabric I used felt. These wings are super easy and really really strong against being jostled around at a con. People have been really rough on them and the worst that happened is the kite string I used broke.(It rubs on one of the grommets).
I have 300 followers. ;u;
Here is a photo (with horrible lighting) of a Derspit keychain.
The juju lollipop and John’s lollipop. These are super easy patterns as well.
Alternate Time keychain. It’s a little smaller but I think it looks a little better.
I’m going to test this out later tonight if I have time. The towers should be made like legs on a lizard or turtle or something similar. They should poke out at an angle and be pretty cool if I am correct.
If you wanted to you could add towers to the planet by doing the same “leg” technique if you really wanted to.
Edit: The Derspit I made used 3ft of rexlace.
I was having fun designing god tier keychain bead patterns tonight. (Beadie-buddy style) I’ll post some more later tonight as well.
These are super basic. (A quick youtube search brings up a ton of videos like this: link if you don’t know how to make “bead pets” / “beadie buddies”)
