How to choose a feather fan- Feather Fan FAQ'S

Purchasing a set of fans is an investment, and we understand that! We want you to love them, so please read up on some of the differences between the standard styles offered.

It can be overwhelming, so feel free to call if you would like to discuss it! 630-620-9210, and I would be happy to help guide you.  

We also can do custom made fans, so go ahead and dream something up! We are in the business of making feathery dreams come true and will do our best to accomodate your requirements!

This includes custom dyeing colors, tip dyeing, edge dyeing, bigger, smaller, or whatever it takes!  We like a challenge!

 

Economy fans:  40 inches wide by 20 inches high

Economy fans are great for beginners, or people just learning how to manipulate the fan moves, parades, carnivals, and plays.  They are easier to hold an move than the larger fans.

Economy fans are also great for large productions where there are several performers on stage at once, due to budget and space restrictions.

Economy fans are bigger than handheld fans, smaller than our fancy or ultimate fans.

The economy fans come fully assembled, or as kits where you attach the feathers yourself to the staves and wire them.

We have good instructions on assembly here: http://fancyfeather.com/how-to-make-a-feather-fan

Economy fans also come as single layer or double layered, with one long and one short feather per stave. There are 12 staves per fan that opens and closes. Staves are the acrylic pieces to which the feathers are attached.

The bonus of getting a double layered fan is that the second smaller layer fills more space on the bottom (near your hand) of the fan, so that the audience does not see as much of the acrylic staves.

Economy fans are made with drab feathers. Drab feathers are not as full or wide as wing feathers.  Wing feathers are fuller, wide, and leave less space or gaps between the feathers on the fan.

Wing feathers are featured in our "fancy" quality fans, which we recommend for seasoned burlesque performers, theatrical/stage musicals, belly dancers and more professional uses.

Double layer: http://fancyfeather.com/feather-fans/economy-quality-burlesque-ostrich-feather-fan-double-layer  40 inches wide x 20 inches high

 

Deluxe fans:  45 inches wide by 22 inches high

This is the next step up from the economy syle of fans.  It is made still using drab feathers, (as opposed to full wing feathers) but has two long layers of feathers on each stave.

Perfect for petite performers, or those with space restrictions.

The Deluxe fans come fully assembled, or as kits where you attach the feathers yourself to the staves and wire them.

We have good instructions on assembly here: http://fancyfeather.com/how-to-make-a-feather-fan

Deluxe fans only come as double layered, with two long 17-19" drabs stave. There are 12 staves per fan that open and close.  Staves are the acrylic pieces to which the feathers are attached.

Value fans: 50 inches wide by 20 inches high

Our value fans are offered as double layered fans made with two long layers of spad feathers.  Spads are immature wing feathers.  They are long, but the tips are not fully developed as they are on a wing.

The overall look is nice and full, but the tips are just a bit sparse.  They don't droop like the wings do, but it's a nice looking affordable alternative to the fancy quality fan, and bigger than the economy fans.

Many competitors have this as their standard fan.  We have it as a mid range fan, with good proportions. We do not offer this in single layer because the tips are not very full and we feel it looks much nicer double layered.  

If you would like it as a single layer, we can certainly quote you!  There are two long spads per stave, and the fans open and close.

Fancy fans: 50 inches wide by 25 inches high

This is our most popular fan for seasoned professionals.  Our Fancy fans are made with luxurious 18-22 inch ostrich wing feathers.  It is available in both single and double layers.....as kits, and fully assembled.

This is "THE" burlesque and serious performer fan!  It's made with full wing feathers leaving little to no gaps between feathers for full coverage. I am 5 foot 7 inches, and it goes from my chin to my shin. 

The Fancy fans come fully assembled, or as kits where you attach the feathers yourself to the staves and wire them.

We have good instructions on assembly here: http://fancyfeather.com/how-to-make-a-feather-fan so you can decide what's best for you.

Fancy fans are offered single or double layered, with one long wing (18-22"), and one shorter wing (9-13") per stave. There are 12 staves per fan, and they open and close.  Staves are the acrylic pieces to which the feathers are attached.

The bonus of getting a double layered fan is that the second smaller layer fills more space on the bottom (near your hand) of the fan, so that the audience does not see as much of the acrylic staves.
