Movie Monday: The Tooth Fairy

Well it is still kind of slow Costume wise for new movies. All I have to offer you this week is this comedy coming out on Friday: The Tooth Fairy (2010).

Who ever thought we would one day see Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in a satin shirt, tights and wings!

Making a pair of wings is a skill all costumers should learn to do (I have never personally made some, but my parents made me a pair for a bee costume when I was 5 and they have been used sporadically for angel costumes by other members of the family since); after all, Something with wings is on the Compulsory Costume List! Most wing making techniques require the use of metal wire for the frame (a metal hanger will do perfectly), nylons or tights for the wings, which are easy to slip over your frame, but you could also use fabric that you would sew to the wire, and shoulder straps for you to wear your wings.

Or you can be lazy and buy a pretty nice pre-made pair for about 10$ - 15$. Your choice!
