This is a spiritual sequel to Thoughts on Wings by uzlo, which is also on tumblr.

Anyway, while reading the tags and comments on said tutorial, I noticed a lot of people expressing a desire for a bat wing version. So here’s a little guide I whipped up on them!

Bat wings are simpler than bird wings in that there’s no feather structure to learn, but you do need to learn the bones. Once you get the hang of those though, they’re pretty easy!

Bat photos are all kinda same-y to be honest (likely due to them mostly being nocturnal), and don’t do a good job of showing how those babies work. So, slowmotion videos are really helpful!

This Is a outfit that I made quite a while ago, But I’ve done a little work on it so it would be ready for Anime Boston, and maybe The Devil Carnival as well. 

Those are real antlers, I do most of my casting from them for my other projects, Also the side cape is detachable, it’s magnetic so easy on and off. I also have a flag that goes with this outfit I don’t normally use it thought it’s very tall.

Also the The mask on my head isn’t a mask it’s a head dress you can’t see though it at all! XD and the boots and pants I didn’t make, but other then that everything else is handmade by me =]
