For my costume, I made the faerie wings from the tutorial shown in my last post. I know I copied them completely, but in the time I had to finish them I was too pressed for time to experiment. The only thing I changed was that I wasn't able to find strong enough wire to hold the shape after the stockings had been added. I bought cheap wings from a costume shop, cut off the nylon on them, and added my own so that I could have a clean slate. It works out wonderfully although it was harder to create a strong enough base to keep them from flopping around. As you can tell in the picture, they are a big saggy by the end of the day...but you get the picture. Post. Script. I made the tutu also.
I was lucky enough to hang out with the lovely Cleo Wolfus who creates beyond beautiful dredfalls. I never wanted to leave her booth because the colors and textures surrounding me were so magical, they truly embodied the essence of FaerieWorlds. I'm wearing the pair I bought in the picture above.

Here are such a few of my favorite photos from the festival:
