Steps to Follow
To start the project, you need to make all the measurements. The length of the wings depends on how big you want them. Take a big piece of A3 paper (attach more together if you need bigger). Draw a shape of the wings to see how you want them.
Take the thick iron wire and bend them accordingly to get the right shape of the wings. You need to cut the iron wire if they are too big for them.
Take the thin iron wire and start attaching the thick ones into the shape of the wings. Use other props if the thin wire is not enough for holding the pieces together. Make sure you tightly attach them so that they will not fall off.
Take the white mesh fabric and attach it allover the wings to cover everything up.
Take the old school bag and cut the backside that has the strap. You are going to use the bottom of the bag with straps as a strap for the wings to hold onto your shoulder. Attach the wings on the straps with glue and set them to dry.
Take the feathers to attach them to the wings. You need to use the adhesive spray to attach the feather. Spray the adhesive on one portion of the wing and put the feathers there. Wait for the portion to dry down completely. After it is dried, you can start to cover the other parts one by one.
