The slippers are perfect! My feet are 4 in wide so a little snug but I knew they would be. I can get the slippers on and they are comfortable. Wonderful craftsmanship! Also, I was quite impressed by the shipping time!!
One of a Kind Pieces From a One of a Kind Artist.
Hi, I'm Lindsey.
All of my work usually happens by accident--- I'll start a project and look for a pre-made component and be unable to find it and I'll just go ahead and make my own. It's really a wonderful thing to be an artist. If I'm looking for something out in the world and I can't find it anywhere, I can just make it myself and call it a day.
I have a pair of wings in my shop right now that are there specifically because I could NOT find an affordable pair anywhere. I didn't like the shapes of the ones available, and they also weren't especially flattering to brunettes, one of which I happen to be. I looked around and I found brown-toned and grey-toned feathers in bulk, and I fell in love with the new idea in my head and had to make them myself. I created that piece to be color-complimentary and more accurate than the ones I could find online or in stores, and to this day it's one of my proudest achievements.
I made my own Jasmine wig expressly out of cost concerns as well, and because most of the ones I've seen weren't full enough for my taste anyway. Again, that's an example of filling a small void with something I made myself. I just saw the other day that my wig is on the first page of Google results when you search for one like it--- that feeling of accomplishment, the feeling that you're bringing something to the table unlike anyone else's before you, is a heady and beautiful thing.
I also have top results on Jasmine shoes, because I made myself a pair of those as well, and with how easy it was to do, wanted to share my design with others who maybe needed the same thing. Any place I have found a lack of proper costume accessories, I have filled with my own work, and I use my shop to bring those pieces to you.
I've had many people close to me say that they've never seen anything like what I can do. It's true that mostly every artist is a complete and total individual, and it's also true that your family and friends are supposed to be on your side, so I paid it no mind. For the first time through Etsy, I'm seeing that I am a part of something much bigger than the small town in which I live. I am capable of doing things no other person on the planet is capable of doing, and I am humbled by that and I am ecstatic that Etsy presents us as artists with the opportunity to share that uniqueness with the world.
I'm proud to belong to this community and it shows in my work, and I hope you enjoy my work too. It brings me joy to be able to share it and to have come this far, and I have plans to go even farther!
Look out world. Here I come!

Owner, Maker, Designer, Photography, Shipping, Materials Selection
Hi, I'm Lindsey. I'm 22 years old and I make each one of these pieces by hand in my spare time. I'm the designer, the maker, you name it--- it's all me, and I love doing it. I do my best to share my talents with anyone needing magic in their life!
Accepted payment methods
Orders must be paid in advance. Your money goes toward making your item, and payment up front ensures that I can begin working on it right away.
There are no cancellations. This is because I begin making your item as soon as I receive payment. Once fabric is cut, that fabric cannot be used again, since every article in my shop is made for each specific customer by measurements. I cannot return fabric once I have cut into it, so I do not accept returns unless it is absolutely necessary.
Your item will not be made until you have paid. Therefore if you are looking for an item by a specific date, paying in advance as soon as possible is the best way to go.
The price of shipping is for standard air mail shipping, which may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on how far away you are. If you would like to upgrade to rush shipping, contact me and we can arrange this through PayPal outside of the Etsy site. Esty shipping cannot be adjusted on an individual basis, only for the entire listing. The listing price will always be the base price---any upgrades that you want to consider should be emailed to me and we will discuss pricing.
Insurance and confirmation are not included. If you would like insurance and confirmation, contact me.
I DO NOT ship internationally.
I ship to the address that Etsy provides me on the payment page. Please make sure your information is kept current so that your package can find you. If you are sending your package as a gift and would like it sent directly to the recipient, that can be arranged, just let me know.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds will only be given for the following reasons:
--The garment does not match the measurements that you gave. I am not responsible for you changing size in the meantime, only for the measurements I was given upon your initial purchase.
--The garment is visibly falling apart before being worn.
I CANNOT give refunds for any of the following reasons:
--Garment was stained or ripped during use.
--Garment was ruined in transit.
--Garment was lost in transit.
--Garment arrived after you needed it.
--Garment was not what you thought it would be. I have tried to take pictures of different angles and present an accurate description. What you see is what you get.
If your case meets the above criteria, you may be eligible for a refund. Refunds will only be given if the garment is returned unworn with the original invoice with your order number on it.
WIGS cannot be refunded or returned no matter what, for sanitation reasons. Once it reaches you, it's yours.
Return shipping will be paid by the customer. Ship the item back to me with the original invoice and your reason for returning, and I will refund your money via paypal.
You will be refunded the amount of money that I received minus the Etsy tax. For example, if you ordered a pair of slippers for $15.00, I only receive $14.26 of that. So you will be refunded the $14.26, NOT the entire $15.00. This is because a portion of your sale goes directly to Etsy---since I cannot get it back from Etsy, I cannot give it back to you.
