I need life-size angel wings




I'm searching for big white feathered wings, nice ones, similar to the kind Victoria's Secret shows in the window displays (except that Victoria's Secret won't sell them to anybody, as I have already found out).

Maybe I should be asking for "afterlife size" wings...?

Try e-bay

Linda,

You might try searching for them on e-bay. It's amazing what's for sale out there. If you're not in a hurry you can 'save' your search and then be notified by e-mail when an item becomes available that meets your search criteria.

I'm sure you've already tried a search on google. What about costume shops? They might have something like that.

Good luck with this one!

Joan

P.S. I would love to hear how you're going to incorporate these, assuming they'll be in a painting. Sounds wonderful.

I'm unfortunately of no help in trying to find angel wings for you but I can't wait to hear about the painting you're planning to use them for!

You know I'd help, were it not for spring molting.

Sincerely,

These are from a gothic website. They're shown in black but say that white is available.

Omitting (for the moment) about 4,000 "naughty angel" and "angel of the night" sites, here is one you might explore without blushing.

Maybe you'll just have to "wing it"!

I am impressed with the high level of due diligence afforded my request for this item.

I received a call from a church with an Idea. What we thought would be a Funded Idea may now turn out to be an Unfunded Idea, which is of course much less attractive. But I have a stack of huge panels, lots of studio space, access to terrific models and a lot of energy. It's very tempting to attempt such grand schemes between portrait commissions.

Hi Linda.

My best idea is to contact a bird conservator. I think that it would be more easy to find a pair of swan wings than a pair from an angel.

exclamation Wings on e-bay available now

Linda,

You probably thought I was kidding about e-bay, but you can get almost anything on e-bay. I did a quick search for "feather wings", those would be the key words I would want in the wings that would fit your description, there is a pair at this site with 8 hours left to bid:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...166443817&rd=1

My search yielded quite a bit more, though some were smaller little statue things. There are actually a number of 'life-size' angel wings available right now.

Good luck!

Joan
