 Hello! Thanks so much for this tutorial. I'm making these for a cosplay, but I have some questions!

Firstly, do you think it'll be okay if the wire is a gauge or two thicker? I was only able to obtain 14-gauge for the interior and 12-gauge for the outline. The wings have a dragonfly-like pattern, so the spaces between the wire is about 1-1 1/2 in. thick. I'm worried that the iron won't be able to press the film down in-between these spaces.

Secondly, what exactly is the glaze made of? Can I realistically substitute clear Elmer's glue or something else that's easily obtainable? And how long should it take to dry?

I'm so sorry to pester you with questions; however, the fantasy film really pushed my budget for this costume and I want to get it right the first time. :)

Thanks!

Best to do a small test with all of these materials if budget is an issue. I've only done it the way I detailed, so while I assume clear Elmers and thicker wire would be fine, I can't say 100%.

Would a translucent marker color over these nicely or no?

I have a quick question, if i want to do a sort of curl at the tops of the wings would that work as well or might it be more complicated for the working of the film? Otherwise this is great! my fae cosplay may just come to fruition afterall

Is there an easier to obtain glue besides the sun and moon glue that would be ok to use?? Like something from Michaels craft store or something??? Thanks!!

Hey, I'm considering making a pair for myself. But out of curiosity, how many sheets of fantasy film do you need for a set of wings?

Thank you so much for making this tutorial!!! I used this to make my own set of wings for Rosetta. This was a God-send after several failed attempts. Everything is clear and easy to follow.

Also your Tink is absolutely adorable :)

This is amazing, I'm planning on using fantasy film to create a pair of wings for a Chrysalis cosplay but as i looked around for different sheet colors the sized they come in are a lot smaller than the 20" x 10'. Any suggestions? :x

I'm just curious how strong are the wings? I want to use fantasy film to make crystal wings for a friend and I plan on using wire throught out the wings but I don't know how strong the film is so I'm worried it will rip easily.

Once you iron the film down, it takes on a plastic like consistancy. It shouldn't rip too easily.

I wish I could make my own wings for cosplay. So, sorry if I sound stupid, but, I'm not sure abot that type of paper being sold at my country (Spain). Do you think cellophane is a good replacement?

This is so awesome!! If I remember to try it with my daughter... :) It is very nice of you to put up the information on how to do this. Thank you so very much. :)
Being how I am not so much into doing the fantasy stuff and not living in Maryland, am I to presume it is big stuff there? You have some great outfits!
I hope Sandy did not destroy your life and that you fared well through the storm.
