Q.

A.

Who are you?  Do you make your products?

Hi, my name is Meghann Frickberg and I have been making wings for over 20 years,  professionally for over 15 years.  My roots are in the fine arts, I spent most of my childhood and teens drawing, painting and sculpting; at home and at art classes.  Instead of pursuing  Art college after high school I decided to dive into the arts headfirst and try to make a career of it on my own.  I worked odd jobs for a couple years while trying to find my niche in the art world.  Then, as things do, everything seemed to fall into place and now, making costume accessories is my full time job.  I feel very blessed to be able to make a living from my passion. It's great to be able to share it with others and bring happiness into their lives.  I hope you enjoy owning my art as much as I enjoy making it.      - Meghann

Q.

A.

 

How do I care for my wings?

o     If your wings get wet, simply let them dry out.  If they have feathers it is best to blow them dry with a hair dryer while they are still wet, if they have already dried out, re-wet them and blow dry them. 

o      The edges of your wings have a protective coating on them to prevent knicks and holes.  If you do see a small hole forming simply cover the affected area with a thin layer fabric glue (available at your local craft store like Joann Fabrics or Michael's),  if it is too thick it may leave a milky appearance.  This should stop the hole in its tracks and keep new ones from forming.  You can also apply it to any areas that are more susceptible to damage like the tips to prevent  any future damage (especially if you wear your wings often) (I like to use a  brush to apply glue)

o     If your wings are white and you want them to stay that way, it is very important to keep them clean and store them in a clean large plastic bag(unused garbage bags work well).

o     Steaming your wings will often clear any wrinkles, waves, or dents in the fabric.

Q.

A.

 

 

Elastic is sized to fit the average adult.  You can shorten the elastic to fit a smaller adult or child by tying off the amount needed on both straps.

Sizing Elastic to Fit:  To find out how much needs to be tied off:

o     Try on the wings

o     Pinch the extra elastic on both sides equally until the wings fit comfortably.  The pinched amount should be equal on both sides.

o     Make a note of how much extra elastic was pinched.

o     Take the wings off

o     Pinch the same amount of elastic close to the lower back of the wings and tie a knot on each elastic, this way the knot youíve tied is hidden when wearing the wings.

Q.

A.

Can I bend the wings?

Yes, you can Position the wings differently.  You can make them stick out from your back more by  bending from the base of each wing section away from the body. be careful though.  Do not try to change the overall shape of each wing section because  rippling of the fabric can occur. 

Q.

A.

 

How do you make your wings?/Can you tell me exactly how to make wings like yours?

Lots of Time, effort, Inspiration, patience and glitter!/  Sorry, I cannot reveal my secrets.  It's taken me a long time, a lot of patience, trials and errors to get where I am today.

Basic Construction: Wire frame, Nylon Stocking Fabric, Paint, Glitter, Glue etc... I use only the best components I can find for the job.  I test and retest  to be sure that my products are both durable and beautiful.

Hi I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with the beautiful wings. I wore them at Wanee Fest in Florida and got many compliments. Just thought I would let you know what a hit they were and how much I enjoyed them. Peace and love          -Rachel

 

I've been meaning to write to you for a while. Your wings were a great success! They have a new happy home mounted on my parent's wall in Los Angeles, were there are the source of much admiration and love. This will not be the last time I wear these,  they are super awesome!   -Chelsea

 

Hi Meghann,  I just wanted to let you know that I received the pouf hats and I just love them! Thank you so much. They are just what I wanted. My husband loves them too, so I will be getting one for him too.  Thank you again!     -Rogerlyn

 

Hello Meghann,        I got the wings and I am very pleased with them. You did a great job! The colors came out so nice. I can't wait to wear them. Everyone in the family keeps trying them on! The hat looks really good too. That is another thing that goes from head to head. It is kind of funny. One minute, my step-son will be talking to me and the next time I look at him he has on the hat. Or my husband will be sitting watching TV in the hat. Or I will be reading in the hat. Or doing the dishes. It looks very cool. Thank you so much for your hard work. And thanks for the extra batteries for the light barrettes. I hope that we can do business again soon. Take care.          Best regards,    -Arell
