So I’ve been a bit bad at updating my blog, almost a year in fact! Coincidentally my last entry was about last year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and this year’s show will air in just a couple weeks on December 8th on CBS with 3 sets of wings for the Exotic Butterflies segment. More on that in a following post, right now I’d like to share with you Katy Fairy – erm, Katy Perry that is, wearing a set of Fancy Fairy Titania wings! Here’s a link to the holiday music video / commercial just released for H&M.

These were actually the first set of light up wings I created with Jordan Price, who did the light work. The film set is extrememly bright so you can’t see the lights, but they sprinkled the wings with crystals and even made them flutter to make up for it! So there it is, I had signed an NDA with B. Akerlund (Katy’s stylist) and H&M so I couldn’t say anything about it until now. Below are a few more photos. I know I’m feeling very merry!

Where do I begin? Well, for a few years now, the dream of having my work in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show seemed to be one of those out of reach goals. Something I fantasized about happening but would have deemed too good to be true.

One day, however, I got an email from someone asking about my Dragonfly wings and needing rush shipping. It turned out it was for VS. I almost thought maybe someone was pulling my leg – too good to be true right?? But no, it was legit, and a few weeks later I sent them off to their offices in New York, anxiously waiting for any word about what they thought of them. I wasn’t sure if I’d know if they would be used for a month or more and even then last minute changes frequently happen. It turned out I’d hear from them sooner than expected and – they loved them. They actually said that. I was on a conference call with chief wardrobe assistants and producers for the show and they were telling me they wanted more. I think I left reality for a minute! It was a really tight deadline, so there was no time for experimentation but I wanted them to be perfect. 2 large and 3 giant sets of wings and it was Halloween season to boot. But this HAD to happen.

I was lucky to have help, and have Jordan Price, Brandy Esparza, and even my mom Colette Enos to thank for being extra sets of hands and keeping my head on straight. My materials vendors all came through for me as well to get everything done by the due date. When the day came to ship the package of giant wings it wouldn’t even fit in my car and Fedex wouldn’t come back for another pickup, so it was her and her Scion to the rescue with JUST enough room for it, with our seats pushed forward as far as they would go and the end of the box resting at the back of our heads while she drove us to the next available Fedex in time for their Express cut-off.

As you can see from the photos, they all made it. None of the wings broke on the way to London, or got lost like I fretted about, and no one changed their mind and threw them out of the lineup.  I can finally relax, stop worrying and enjoy the show! Barbara Fialho and Eniko Mihalik both wore giant Kira wings in different color schemes, then Devon Windsor and Jasmine Tookes rocked two different sizes of the black and blue Dragonfly wings, and finally Elsa Holsk wore the Acorn wings in a large size. They all looked amazing from what I can glean from the sneak peaks and I’m stupidly excited to see the show this Tuesday night. The only question is, what happens now? No matter what, I’ll always be proud to know I actually made some Angels into Fancy Fairies on one of the most famous runways on the planet.

I’m excited to present you with the new officially licensed Amy Brown fairy wings from FancyFairy.com!

Official Amy Brown "Bubble Rider" Fairy Wings by FancyFairy.com

We’ve chosen the all-time classic Bubble Rider wings, along with the more recent Ringmaster. The Bubble Riders are layered and large, with swirling curly tendrils making them an especially fancy set of wings.

The Ringmaster wings are the smaller set, which may be sought after if you have issues with crowded spaces. There is even a Simplicity pattern made to go with the same painting, so you can now have a full costume including wings!

I’ve just started roughing out the vein structure for new officially licensed wings based on Amy Brown’s fairy art!

Amy Brown Fancy Fairy Wings

 

We’re starting with the Bubble Rider and the Ringmaster, the latter of which has a matching Simplicity pattern available so you can sew your own costume to go with them. The release date is not confirmed yet, I don’t know if they will make it for Halloween but possibly maybe by Faeriecon! The Bubble Rider wings will be a medium / large set, most likely with separate upper and lower panels for the most pose-ability, and the Ringmaster wings will be a smaller simpler set for those who want wings to wear in tight crowds or cosplayers on a budget.

Faengel Wings

These were commissioned for Gregangelo of Velocity Circus. He wanted angel shaped wings made with the materials I usually use.

It was challenging to me to get the right look to translate a feather wing design to iridescent film and cut aluminum sheet. I made a secondary layer of wing in front that stops halfway down for some dimension and stylized the design. I’m thinking of calling them Faengel wings, whatcha think?
