wings of fish

How to make felt wings

You can make angel wings in a lot of ways and this is how I made a pair out of felt for my latest cosplay. This technique is fairly simple but takes a lot of time.

I started by drawing the shape of one wing on a piece of paper (One wing was for me around 33x26 cm). It is a good idea to also draw out how you want the feathers to be on the paper wing so you can get a hint on how big they should be.

For the feathers I used white hobby felt that I cut out in to six different sizes. This step is by far the most time consuming (it take a lot of time!) and I highly recommend making a pattern of the feathers in cardboard to make the process easier. I made around 600 feathers in total to cover back and front on both wings.

To make the feathers more stiff it is a good idea to coat them with mod podge. Just one coat makes a lot of difference and help the wings keep its shape. (I did not do this step with the smallest feathers since they did not need to be stiff).

To see how I wanted the formation of the feathers I placed them out on the paper wing and took a photo so I could check it later on.

For the base of the wings I cut out the shape of the wing in craft foam. Since I wanted the small feathers on the upper part of the wings to be a bit higher up I glued on some extra craft foam there.  

To hold the base up I used some black worbla that I twisted the lower part of to give them some angle so they didn’t lay flat. To make sure no color show between the feathers everything was painted white and a stripe of felt was glued over the worbla.

Next I started to glue the first row of feathers to each other. Since I did not want to glue them direcly on the foam wing yet I used needles to help mark the placement of the feathers on the next couple of layers.

When I was done gluing the bigger feathers together I took the foam base away and used some transparent paper to draw out the shape of all the feathers except the first row.

I then placed the paper over the foam base and made dots where the inner corners where the feathers on the lower row met. I then draw a line above it and cut along it. This was made because I realised that the felt feathers where a bit see through and the shape of the foam base could be seen. Higher up it were more feathers and harder to see it.

The base was glued to the feathers and was then flipped over and feathers where glued to that side as well.

For my cosplay I needed red stones on the wings. I used two glass prism, black worbla and some red and gold paint to make them. However this made the wings heavier then they needed to be so if you are making something like this, try to use a lighter material for this part.

And they are done! Time consuming but really light (even with the stones) and easy to make.

Ponder had long been struck by the fact that the Librarian, an ape – at least generally an ape, although this evening he seemed to have settled on being a small table set with a red-furred tea service – was, well, so human shaped. In fact, so many things were pretty much the same shape. Nearly everything you met was really a sort of complicated tube with two eyes and four arms or legs or wings. Oh, or they were fish. Or insects. All right, spiders as well. And a few odd things like starfish and whelks. But still there was a remarkably unimaginative range of designs. Where were the six-armed, six-eyed monkeys pinwheeling through the jungle canopy?
Oh, yes, octopussies too, but that was the point, they were really only a kind of underwater spider…
Ponder had poked around among the University’s more or less abandoned Museum of Quite Unusual Things, and noticed something rather odd. Whoever had designed the skeletons of creatures had even less imagination than whoever had done the outsides. At least the outside-designer had tried a few novelties in the spots, wool and stripes department, but the bone-builder had generally just put a skull on a ribcage, shoved a pelvis in further along, stuck on some arms and legs and had the rest of the day off. Some ribcages were longer, some legs were shorter, some hands became wings, but they all seemed to be based on one design, one size stretched or shrunk to fit all.
Not to his very great surprise, Ponder seemed to be the only one around who found this at all interesting. He’d point out to people that fish were amazingly fish-shaped, and they’d look at him as if he’d gone mad.

My turn?

Hello to everyone and welcome back! Yes, I finally updated the next prompt of Gajevy week (I’m incredibly sorry for my lateness… I went on a road trip for the weekend and couldn’t finish this sooner). So, I bring you Day 3 - Pillow Talk

Summary: Gajeel and Levy talk about anything and nothing at all and the conversation suddenly turns serious.

Warning: This is going to be a rollercoaster of emotions, so fasten your seat belts and I hope you enjoy the ride! 

Rate: Gajeel’s potty mouth

Timeframe: Cannon-verse; after their time at the Council, before Alvarez war. They aren’t a couple (yet), just very good friends.

I would like to ask you a favor: if this gets any reaction on you I want you to share this on tumblr/leave a comment with what was your reaction (‘I squealed’, 'I awww’, something like that). It helps me to know if what I’m writing is getting the desired effects.

Words count: 5.4 k


“Would ya rather… uhm… would ya rather eat one of those winged blueish fish raw or lick Elfman’s foot?” Gajeel asked and tilted his head to the side to see the bluenette that was lying beside him.

“Ew! Hmm, can I at least put some sauce on the fish?” Levy furrowed her nose and eyebrows in disgust. She couldn’t decide whether the winged fish was more disgusting that Elfman’s foot.

“Nope. Raw.”

“Fine. I would lick Elfman’s foot.”

“For real?!”

“Yes, have you ever tried one of those fishes, Gajeel? No, thank you. I rather lick Elfman’s foot.”

“Ew that’s gross, Shrimp.”

Wow you really spammed up my dashboard, fun to read through all imagines again though! 8D UT US UF SF skelebros with an S/O who does not like been called pet names like honey sweetie darling etc theres no real reason why they just don't like it they just dont, so what would the skellies reaction be if they accidently slip up by calling their S/O by a pet name and see how the S/O visibly cringes? the S/O don't get mad though just tells them plz don't call them by it again, did that make sense?

Sorry ‘bout the spamming 

UT!Sans: His go to pet name is Babe. It always has been, and always will be. But he of course isn’t going to call you that if you’re not okay with it. But sometimes he’s tired, or his mind is somewhere else and he’ll slip up. When he sees you cringe it brings him back to reality 0-100 fast. And he’ll be apologizing a lot. But you both know that it was an honest mistake and that there are no hard feelings. He will joke about it.

UT!Papyrus: Oh my god he can’t believe he’d do such a thing. He’ll be apologizing over and over because he didn’t mean to do that. He respects you and your boundaries way too much. This is horrible. It takes a while for him to calm down. Your comfort is very important to him, and he hates accidentally calling you something you’re not okay with.

US!Sans: His preferred pet names are way more generic. He wants to call you stuff like star and angel, and he’s slightly disappointed that you don’t let him do that. But he’ll respect it. His mind is always all over the place, though. Even though he’s a very collected person. So he doesn’t always notice the slip ups or your reaction to them. But when he does notice them, or when you tell him that Hey, you weren’t supposed to call me that, remember? He feels like he failed you as a boyfriend. Apologizes profusely and promises to never do it again. 

US!Papyrus: He’s totally fine with it. But he comes up with the stupidest pet names ever just to tease you. Only if you’re okay with them, he doesn’t really use them, he just says them out loud every once in a while. Examples include Furby, Pumpkin wings and jelly fish. He also has a habit of calling you really long complicated Starbucks orders, but he says them like they’re a really simple nick name. Like whacha doin’ my Caramel Macchiato, Venti, Skim, Extra Shot, Extra-Hot, Extra-Whip, Sugar-Free to go drink? (No idea how he memorizes them) If he sees that what he called you rubbed you the wrong way he’ll apologize and cross it off the list. He likes teasing you and getting a reaction out of you. It’s just what a relationship with him is like.

UF!Sans: You’re taking away one of his favorite words by doing this. And there is no way that he’s not going to accidentally call you sweetie, sweetheart or any other variation of the word sweet something. He tries his best, he really does. But it’s going to take a while before he stops with it. He will apologize every time he does it though. But don’t expect some kind of speech. A quick sorry Y/N and then he moves on. (Mostly because he’s mad at himself for doing it again)

UF!Papyrus: He’s totally fine with not using pet names. And to be honest he’s probably never going to call you one if you don’t want him to. If he lets one slip it surprises the both of you equally much. He will still say sorry if it happens. He does have manners.

SF!Sans: He gets mad and defensive when he offends you, because he doesn’t like to admit that he could ever be anything than the perfect boyfriend™. So he might just ignore it and correct himself to your preferred name. He will try to find the loophole and find a name that you’re okay with him calling you though. 

SF!Papyrus: He’s very good at not calling you stuff you’re not okay with. But sometimes he does let a honey or sweetie slip. He’ll be apologizing for a while and then nuzzle you. When he’s very tired, I’m talking barely able to keep his eyes open tired, he has a tendency to call you cutie or love. But he’ll be asleep before he sees your reaction.
