So I've seen a question similar to this one, but the wings were much shorter. I've got a character that's about 5ft tall and has wings from about his shoulders to his calves. Think avian-human hybrid (he was one of the first test tube babies) he's unique and wants to hide his wings when he's going into towns and such. How would I hide his wings? he couldn't just hide them with a jacket because of the length. the difference between this and the other question is my character is very short. his wings are about the length of his entire torso, and my character can fly, albeit not easily, but he can fly.
Giant Hiking Backpack
He's never going to be able to hide them under clothing. It'll be too obvious there's way too much unaccounted mass there unless he also wears a fatsuit. Your best bet is to hide them under a large accessory it's seen as reasonably normal to wear on your back.
So give him a fake hiking backpack that doesn't actually have anything inside it. Make it go from the top of his head to below his back, and make it zip closed around his wings and hide them safely inside.
Another plus side is that, as the picture demonstrates, this works regardless of the weather, whereas any kind of solution involving bulky clothing is gonna look odd come summertime.
Pretend to dress up in costume.
Although I think that the two answers posted before mine are certainly more likely to work in an everyday situation, but if your character needs to potentially make a quick escape using his wings, he could dress the rest of his body as some extreme cosplay character or costume, which would not impinge his wings, but would definitely get some strange looks from passerby. This disguise works especially well during Halloween, or if he is part of a group of young people all wearing costumes.
Welcome to the site.
I believe that if your character can bind their wings, using two straps, they could
- Hide them under a robe or a larger jacket of sorts.
- They can break the straps in an extreme situation.
They could be held far back, and while it might cramp a bit, I think it's better than carrying around a giant backpack. The only issue is that if your character breaks off the straps in a situation that requires quick action, then you have to get new ones.
Hope this helps!
