These wings served their purpose and they are beautiful. The loops that you put your arms through seemed a little bit loose, but they did stay on really well. After the fact I think they left them loose on purpose so they don't constrict. These are good wings. They are larger than I thought they were going to be. I got lots of compliments. The back has all the purple the inner wings are black so when you see them from front view looks like you have black wings on. When you turn around all the regalia of the purples are in full view.
