Fancy Fairy Wings & Things
Ellette New Convertible Iridescent Fairy Wings in Ultraviolet with Chameleon veins
A new late style from the 2016 Summer Platinum Edition, the Ellette fairy wings have now been upgraded to convertible wings like the others in the 2018 Ethereal Collection. These were done in iridescent Ultraviolet film with the new specialty Chameleon Cherry Violet veins that change from black to violet to greenish gold, measuring 41 inches wide. The bottom panels have now been shrunk just slightly to make for a more dynamic silhouette. Inspired loosely by wasp and bee wings, they look as if they could belong to a real insect but are in fact a fantasy design. I forgot and then ran out of time to get a closeup of the vein color, so I've included a closeup of the Sintra wings done in exactly the same colors as the last photo.
Panels attach with included standard screw bolts and nuts. The upper pan head screw is finished on the outer side with a domed acorn nut, which looks like a flower stamen if flowers are attached to hide the connected area.
I will leave the flowers up to the customer for the meantime, so you can match your outfit. I just use faux flowers from the local Michaels store, torn off from the plastic stem and punched a 1/8" hole to go over the screw end. Then, screw the acorn cap on.
Easy peasy! The closeup shows the back of the Fauna wings, though the attachments and brace are exactly the same.
Now, you can wear your wings in resting position by removing the bottom screw if you find yourself in a packed crowd. I suggest removing it while the wings are off, as doing so while they are being worn is tricky and you may drop & lose the screw. Not something to attempt on the dance floor but you're welcome to try - a magnet may be helpful for catching the bolt after removal and a small wrench and / or screw driver may come in handy.
It's now possible to remove all the wing panels for easy transport, or any panels you don't want to wear that day - the antennae, upper panel, and lower panels can each be added or removed.
The frame is constructed of a .040" thick cut aluminum sheet that has been painted black for the veins, and laminated with an iridescent film and clear vinyl.
