Brian Froud, eat your heart out!
You would be surprised by how many muscles you discover that you don't normally use when you have wings on, even relatively light weight ones like my Pixie wings. This shot came about because, after a very long day at Supanova on my feet and battling crowds, I needed to sit down for a second...and then I couldn't get up! *laugh* My back and legs just said "nah, we quit" and I had to stay there a little longer. XD
On the plus side, great way to actually show what the wings themselves looked like and this is probably the most clear space I had around myself the whole day. The wings are crystal organza over a wire frame that I completed in only a couple days. I definitely know I would do a couple things different next time, but they worked really well and the straps came through under the jacket so they couldn't be seen. I do love wearing these!
The character is Pixie from the X-Men comics.
And yes, I have all black sclera contacts in.
