Well, this has sort of become the splash page for the rest of my tutorial, links are below!
Each feather is made out of straightened hanger-wire with two pieces of fabric painted back-to-back over it (think fabric sandwich, with the wire on the inside).
I've added more secondary cover-feathers since these shots, I've replaced the circulation-cutting arm brace with a glove, and I still have to add the arm-hiding fabric/feather combo, but I'm really excited about how these look~
