Really? That's amazing, I thought they were leather or latex coz' they just have such a realistic skin-look. :wow:

:giggle: Naah, I never use leather, I'm a vegan dollmaker ;) and I haven't tried working with latex.

lol I meant fake leather I got tons of it. I want to try and make a half aaok half BJD toy but the character has wings so I'm looking up various methods to pull off big scary bat-wings. X3

It's a shame you didn't make a stop-motion video of your flying fox, that would've been awesome to watch. ^_^

Sounds good!! :D
Make sure the materials of the wings are not too heavy, so that the wings can hold the poses. And the wire mustn't be too thin.

Aaah, I love stop-motion!! Maybe I find the time for a little movie some day :la:

Mind if I ask how you shaped the wire inside the wing-fingers? Is it all one wire inside the wing or are there three separate wires for each finger?

Farumir Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013   General Artist
Yeah it's the main reason why I think aaok and BJDs are awesome; they're perfect for making little movies with. I tried with my first aaok but the wires snapped in his foot and shoulder after finishing the video. [link] ^^;
