Default Ladybug wings

I have a customer that wants me to make her a ladybug costume. I make tutus and hair accessories, but I'm stumped on how to make the wings. I get that you use some kind of wire (what kind and where do you buy it?) and nylon (where do you get this in red?), but I don't know how to make it a part of the costume either. Anyone have any advice? Thanks so much!

Get white and spray paint it.

You can check Walmart or Target any store that has clothing. Depending on the size of wings you need I saw some red at walmart in the girls section.

Actually, now that I think about it the Halloween stores are opening up. I bet you could find them in a store like Walmart or Target, if not the halloween stores.

Ditto on the Spray paint - that's how I do all my fairy wings!
