I’ve built several wings for photo-shoots over the years.It is like a discovery of what materials I can use and how they’ll come out - I’ve made a pair from paper flowers, and one from holiday stems. This time i wanted to give a try to packing foam, and I’m so excited on how they turned out.
And Katie was perfect angel for the photo shoot. These create photo shoots remind me that before the photo gets ever taken, I love creating it - imagining it, making the wings, putting it all together.
I’ve loved Victoria Secret fashion show and the wings they build with multiple themes for every show. The show always intrigued me on how different the wings were - built differenetly and sometimes not even really wings, but the creative process inspires me to make my versions of wings.
Building these angel wings , I learned a lot from my previous projects, from how to attach them to the weight and how to finish them. I’m sure there will be more wings in my future, but here is a nod to the few I have built before.
