Grucce o ali da fatina? - Hangers or fairy wings?
Carnival time ... in a little over! I had no intention of buying a Carnival costume ready, but I wanted to experiment a little: luckily I have a little girl that for now enthusiastically welcomes my ideas!
I bought after Christmas dress with a pink tutu skirt (7 €!)at H&M . It had short sleeves, so I "stretched" them with two pink socks :-). Fairy leg warmers are from little crazy cuffs of a pair of pink gloves! So, what's missing ... the magic wand is already there (remember of the last time at the Circus!), The trick with the glitter ... what's missing? The wings similar to those of Thinkerbell!
I took a couple of hangers, bare hands to shape, the pliers to well bend the hook . I used to cover them gold tulle recovered from a flowers bouquet! I padded the attack of the wings with foam for safety, and I used a pink ribbon (old as the hills!) for attaching them to the body.
How did they come? :-)
PICCOLO AGGIORNAMENTO: ho aggiunto una rosa di stoffa attaccata con una spilla balia al centro delle ali, ci ho fatto girare intorno un nastro di tulle recuperato anch'esso da composizioni floreali.
SMALL UPDATE: I added a pink fabric rose attached with a safety pin at the center of the wings and I've wrapped around a strip of tulle also recovered from flower arrangements.
