This is made from pheasant feathers, some up to six-feet-long. I also added coque feathers to fill it out and give it a full bustle feel. When she’s in her shoes and her wings, Adriana [Lima] will be over nine feet tall. Some of the feathers had a natural curve, and some were shaped with steam. Each was hand-glued on. It took about a week to construct.” — Killer

“The butterfly wings took one month to complete. The base is a metal structure and most of the feathers are — not so sexy — turkey feathers. I dyed all the yellow and black feathers to give them that color. The tendrils were created with ostrich feathers. I cut the fuzz except for these small curls.” — Juliette Meurisse
Idea for constructing Fairy wings. Behind the Scenes: Victoria's Secret Fashion Show “We used laminated cellophane and monofilament to create this veiny texture. The inspiration behind this set of wings was fish — they sent me all these images of beautiful goldfish and fighting fish to work from. This is fabric that has been dyed and heat-cut to look like sea anemone.” — Armando Farfan Jr.
