Introduction: Duct Tape Angel Wings

Picture of Duct Tape Angel Wings

This is one wing of a pair of angel wings I made awhile back. The whole pair used 1 1/2 rolls of duct tape, 2 coat-hangers, and some reeds for basket making as a frame. The whole wing measures out to about 3ft long.  
I later attached both wings to a harness I put together made with hardware cloth, foam, and a belt for my Halloween costume, though unfortunately I never got around to taking pictures of the finished project. 
It was a huge hit, though I did have to make sure not to hit people in the face when I turned around too fast!

Omg I made something like this but the wings kinda draped when I wore them because they were heavy!

Any chance a tutorial of these will be going up? They look perfect for my Halloween costume idea.
