While the bra looked pretty good with just rhinestones and feathers on the cups, I wanted to make it seem a little different from the blue bra I made a few years ago. I decided to add wings and a tail to the Phoenix Bra.
I cut out some wing shapes out of thick sew-in interfacing and hot glued a bit together to form loops for the straps. Luckily, this bra has removable straps, so I just unhooked them and slid the wing "bones" on.
For the tail, I cut out a shape vaguely resembling a tail and glued the top to the inside of the bra. It folds over the hooks, so you can still reach them underneath the tail to unhook/hook the bra as needed. It stuck out a bit, but I figured with the weight of the feathers, it would hang lower eventually.
