Announcement   Important Note: I am no longer accepting requests to provide customized wings. Only items currently listed in my shop will be available for purchase, so please check back for new items.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How do you wear the wings?
Wings are worn by satin ribbons that go around your shoulders and are held in place by little locking clips at the base of the back. The ribbons measure approximately 40" long (100cm), so they can be worn by just about anyone. If you have requested strapless wings, they have a wire frame that slides down the back of a corset or close-fitting bodice.

2. What can I do with the wings when I am not wearing them?
When not in use, these wings can be easily hung with a decorative hook - or even just a command hook if you don't want to put holes in your walls; just try not to hang them in direct sunlight for extended amounts of time as it may cause the fabric to fade. The wings can also be carefully folded and stored.

3. The mannequin in your photos is a size 2-4, but I am not - how will I know if the wings will fit me?
The mannequin is only there so you can see what it would look like when they are worn by a person-like form versus just hanging them on the wall. I use a size 2-4 because it is the smallest available for adults and I don't have a lot of space to take pictures. The form is 13" from shoulder to shoulder, and the overall dimensions of the wings are included in each listing. If your shoulders are wider then 13", you should be able to use the overall width of the wings provided in the individual listings to determine how they would look when you wear them.

4. How do the hinges in your wings work?
They fold like a door hinge, so they open and close where the wing panels meet the base ring. You can position them, but it is mostly a feature that allows you to move through a crowd or fit through doorways without getting caught or stuck.

5. Are the items in your store for pre-order or are they ready to ship?
All items listed in my shop are already made, and ready to ship in 1 - 2 business days.

6. What are your shipping time frames?
Orders are shipped in 1-2 business days.
Shipping costs for the wings are calculated using etsy's shipping application, which gives you a choice of USPS Priority and Priority Express for both domestic and international customers. The shipping cost is calculated by the package size and weight from my location to yours.
For Domestic Orders: USPS Priority mail is 1-3 business days and Priority Express is 1 - 2 business days
For International Orders: USPS International Priority Mail - 6-10 business days and Priority Express is 3 -5 business days

7. I want to purchase an item but I don't have the money just yet - can you hold it for me?
Yes - I can mark an item as reserved for you for two (2) weeks, however, due to high demand in September and October I can only hold and item for one (1) week.

8. I sent you a convo with a question - why haven't I received a response?
I am super busy and/or away from my computer so I do not always have time to respond to every message right away. Check the FAQ and my policies because the answer may already be there.

9. Can you make me a pair of wings, a crown or a mask that looks like ____ (Insert other wearable artist's name)?
No, I will not copy anyone else's work.

10. I need custom wings to match a costume/for an event - can you help?
Sadly, I don't have a whole lot of time to devote to individual requests. At the moment I am not taking any custom orders, but that may change if my schedule opens up in the future.

11. I love your work but I can't afford it - will you lower your price for me?
Would you go to a clothing store and tell them that you love their clothes but you can't afford them, then ask them to give you a special discount? Probably not, but if you did, what do you think they would say, especially if they had to spend hours and hours making all the clothes by hand?

12. I want to make my own wings. Do you offer training or tutorials?
No. I have spent over a decade perfecting my various wing-making methods and I do not share them with anyone. Please don't insult us both by asking. The best thing you can possibly do is to exercise your creative muscles and develop your own method.

13. I am not sure these wings will look good on me - will you send me more pictures and measurements?
I photograph all of my wings with a minimum of five views: back, back 3/4, side, front and a close up of the center back so you can see the decoration. I also provide the overall wing width and height in each listing to give you an idea of the size.

14. Will these wings make me fly, or will the wings or masks give me magical powers?
Yes, I have really been asked both of these questions. Several times. The answer is currently no.

I love my fairy wings!! They are beautiful and so easy to wear. I was late in ordering this item and she still got it to me in plenty of time for Halloween. Amazing service and an exquisite product :)
