Fellow Artsednetters:
I am helping to create costumes for a halloween float my art honor =
society kids are producing. Part of the float will be costumed =
"gargoyles." I would like them to have moveable wings if possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how we could make a support =
structure to stretch fabric over it?
The support couldn't be too heavy (one parade lasts 3 hours). If =
possible, I would like to avoid cardboard because it will probably =
weaken after continued use (we are doing 4 parades). I thought about =
wire, but I am not sure how thick, etc. Any suggestions would be =
appreciated. We plan on attaching the wings to the clothing of the =
student (possibly sewing them together).
