Alexis Noriega of Tucson Estates, Arizona makes amazingly detailed and precise costumes and clothing using feathers. At her Etsy shop, Noriega says that she's already booked through November. I'm not surprised! Her craftsmanship is incredible.
In this video, Noriega shows off a pair of wings that almost look natural. They're pneumatically controlled with the push of a button, spreading and contracting. On Facebook (auto-start video), she explains that they cost about $2500 and that she hopes to put up a video tutorial about them soon.
