Supernatural Castiel Angel Wings How-To

castiel wings 1

There are some costume components I never tire of seeing different takes on — like armor, wigs, and wings. Instructables user Scorchard dressed as Castiel from Supernatural and made his black angel wings. She used turkey and goose feathers, but you can substitute faux ones from your craft store of choice. Other supplies include corrugated cardboard, steel wire, pliers, tape, paint, and glue. Though the wings don’t like like much while they’re coming together, the finished product looks pretty fantastic. It all starts with a cardboard template with a wire frame:

Use the steel wire to create a wire framework that roughly follows the shape of the wing bases. The wire framework will be stronger if it is one continuous piece of wire – wrap and bend where the wire overlaps itself rather than cutting. The only cut that should be made is at the end to separate the wire from the main coil. Duct tape over any wire wraps or bends to re-enforce the connection and cover any sharp edges.

Check out a few in-progress pictures below and see additional ones at Instructables.
