Fairy Wings

by Marsie

Last Thursday evening, in an impromptu moment of inspiration, my roommate Aysha and I decided to make fairy wings!

With a few materials we had on hand (wire-hangers, nylons, paint, pliers, and glitter), we were to concoct satisfying products.

To set the glitter, we needed to apply a layer of hairspray; the only space safe to spray hairspray at 2am was the bathroom. Aysha improvised, using the toilet as a fairy wing stand.

The wings are wearable; straps are fashioned from leftover nylons and swimsuit straps. Aysha and I spent a evening wearing the wings around our apartment.
