I need a picture of Rinoa's Angel Wing, also I need some good advice on what to use when I make it. **She thinks hard** Syrophome (spelling) with cloth attached over it? It a thick cardboard with heavy paint over it? I wonder if I even have a sewing machine. I think I do. **Rubs her chin thinking hard.** I DON'T KNOW! Bah, anyways, thanks to anyone who replies in advance.

you can try party universe or someother party supply store to buy the wings ready-made.... i thought her wings were pics on her cloak?

That's what I thought...

I mean, I thought that they were actually on her back and for that, depending on what type of fabric, I would either paint it on, embroider it (for a more detailed look) or cut out the strips of fabric and sew it on from there.

If you want wings though that attach off her back, you use wire to shape it into the kind of wing you want then cover it with white muslin, then stuff it at the tops to make the bones. Hot glue some feathers on and hook on some straps. There ya go, custom made wings

her cloak has buttons instead of a tie... or other way around...
the artbook versions of characters are always kawaii!

Yea, after all this debate and ideas, Kira should be well off enough to decide which version she wanted and how to go about it. I wish when I started cosplay, the people were this helpful and nice

O.o, you're a newbie? Wow! I didn't even know that or guess it! My friends did that with their first con to Jafax. Found out about it, did ghetto costumes and left. It was great. I wasn't invited to that one though since my place was left with Bowen (girl's boyfriend) that didn't even end up going. Dumb bastards.

My first costume was Rinoa, and I'm currently working on a new version 2 years later! Whoo!

Rinoa's wings are placed on the back of her duster. The best way to do this is to simply get a blank stencil (or just some thin cardboard) take an exacto knife and cut the pattern out for the wings. Then place it on one side and paint it with fabric paint. (the matte Tulip kind is the best) Don't use puffy paint or stenciling paint especially... left a nasty green oily stain on my duster! Then let the paint dry, flip the stencil over and paint the other side.

Here's some pictures of what her wings look like:

The last is a sketch I drew. You can try blowing it up and printing it out to use for a pattern if you want.

Also, there's a good site with a very accurate description of Rinoa's costume here:
