Last day of Fairy week... Fairies ain't just for kids!


Dressing up has always been a passion of mine and as a mama, halloween gives me an excuse to ignite that playful creativity. I created this costume last fall and had so much FUN doing it!  Natures autumn bounty was my inspiration ~ The skirt is broom grass, hydrangeas, big leaves (not sure of the name), oak leaves and maple leaves ~ wand is grass, feathers and cat tails ~ necklace is milkweed pods and feathers...





the wings were created with big, beautiful leaves I had collected. I pressed the to dry in big books and then glue gunned them to nylon/wire wings...





 and of course I had to top the costume off with  lots of shimmer and sparkles!

In fae frolics ...
