Does anyone have a really simple wing tutorial for dummies?

I want to make articulated wings. I need something that’s not complicated.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Right, right. That is totally understandable. Certainly if this is your last con. That just sucks. I’m sorry it didn’t work saying sorry doesn’t really change anything though. I just don’t want you to feel too bad about it. That’s no fun at all. Hey, maybe this is another reason to go to another con show off your awesome skills. I know there are cheaper cons around the area later but it wouldn’t be the same really. 

My flight benefits (my mom just retired from an airline job) expire when I turn 24, so as of early October this year, I will no longer be able to fly for free. (literally the only reason I could go to some of the cons I’ve been to.) I work three part time jobs, so I have no vacation time, and coordinating time off is hell. Just…

I don’t see other cons working out for me. I don’t have the money or the time. (I literally only go to see Misha.)

If the people on Face/Off can do it in 12 hours you can do it!!!!!! Can you glue feathers to a tarp? That seems like the best way to get the shape you want.

Face/Off is a TV show about actual artists and people who trained for this shit locked in a warehouse working on their costumes with access to a shit-ton of resources and sometimes a team.

If they can do it in 12 hours, give me a month and MAYBE.

I want to make them articulated wings. And I have absolutely no head for engineering or physics. I want to make those wings in that video, but I don’t know if I’m able to do that or if I have enough feathers to cover it. (I only bought 1,000, which really isn’t that much when you think about it.)

Unless anyone has a rough estimate of how long these wings would take to make…

you always look great though. So finished or not it’ll look great.

This is unfortunately one of those cosplays where all the pieces really would need to be finished before it’d be wearable (and since I don’t think it’s possible to finish an integral part of the cosplay in time, I’m not going to be buying the materials to make it.

I only make so much money, it’s not nearly enough to go frittering $100 away on something there’s little chance will be done in time. T^T)

Awww :( I’m sorry dearie! I mean you don’t have to go completely cosplayless right? And even if you don’t cosplay you can still have a great experience. If this really is your last con maybe you can do something else to make it really memorable. I know you were really looking forward to it, though. Whatever you do you are still going to do great so don’t put yourself down in the dumps too much. 

 I’m awful at making situations better wow okay. 

I have other cosplays, but I’ve done ‘em before. I love cosplaying and I’m not really going to have any reason to do it after this.

I don’t have the time or inclination to do another cosplay, mostly since this was was going to be freaking awesome and original (as far as I’m aware.) Guess it doesn’t much matter now.

# hurricanecastiel# but gfdi i really wanted this to work out# replies for ts




Kind of aggravated right now

I really wanted to get a cosplay done for Dallas Con (it would have been epic amazing ok) and I’ve already sunk a ton of money into it, but it’s looking like there’ll be no way to get it done in time for the con.

and this may be my last con, too.

*really upset*

as a writer I will gladly admit that I am thirsty for: comments/tags on posts/feedback. 

I can’t even lie. I will not lie. I want it. lol.

Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.
