The Clockwork Wings by thedreadeddolly The Clockwork Wings by thedreadeddolly
Back view of the wings for my clockwork fairy automaton character, Katinka. Each wings is made of two layers of foam core board, with a layer of buckram (spray-painted bronze to look like wire mesh) sandwiched in-between. I cut out each layer of foam core board individually with an exacto knife, which was a complete bitch. I used hot glue to make the raised details outlining the gears and the scroll designs, then spray painted each layer gold, and glued it all together. I put gold bias tape around the outside of the wings to cover up all the raw edges, then made a harness out of leather to hold it snugly to my body. See the finished costume here: [link]
