Announcement   I am no longer taking commissions or selling wings made to order, but will be listing wings as they are made and selling them as-is, ready to ship!
Follow my social media accounts to get previews of items that will be listed for sale as I will post everything there with pricing first and announce the sale date. They have been selling out quickly so you need to sign on early (except for the larger and more expensive wings, which tend to take longer). Below are the links:

Unfortunately, due to the EU's new distance selling laws requiring that refunds be made available up to 14 days after receipt of items for any reason whatsoever to EU customers, I must whithold from selling to the EU until I figure out if there is a way around this. My policy is no returns or exchanges except in the cases of damage by carrier or defect. I simply can't risk selling an expensive set of wings only to have them worn, possibly damaged and then returned by unethical people.

Requests for tutorials will not be answered, however you may find many diy guides by searching online. The types of materials the wings are made of are already detailed in the listings. I also do not loan out or send free wings for photo shoots, however IF I have any wings on hand and you are near enough for me to attend the shoot, rental may be possible for a fee.

Compared to the photo you see when you make your order, you get your hopes up. I was massively underwhelmed with how little the wings looked like their actual wings or even what you see in the photo. They arent stock photos. Theyre just digitally created wings and they arent anywhere near as beautiful as photos of the actual wings... I thought maybe id up the quality of a photo/wardrobe in purchasing these but im not so sure now... Kind of regret making the purchase, which is rare for me on etsy...

The wings worked perfect for this little girl and one of my first fairy sessions.

About

Transforming you into your fairytale self for over a decade

High end iridescent fairy wings for the discriminating fairy fashionista! My wings are uniquely made with cut aluminum sheet frames that make up the 'veins' in the design, which is powder coated and then laminated in iridescent film and vinyl. Light weight and even posable, they will transform you into the most authentic fairy possible. It's been rumored that I must pluck the wings from fairies' backs, but you shouldn't believe a word of that as I don't engage in fairy cruelty ;)
In October of 2014 I stopped taking on custom wings and orders as having the wait times increase to 9 weeks and beyond was more stressful than it was worth and I had no time to be innovative or come up with new designs or the accessories I'd been wanting to try forever. Now, I am just making wings first, ready to ship and listing them here on Etsy in flash sales. I've added hair accessories and headdresses to my offerings and hope to improve on those as well.
I may open up to custom orders someday once I'm ready but that will be reserved for higher priced orders. I may also offer a limited amount of customizable wings in the future, but I enjoy the absence of the long order list and the ability to come up with new things too much to go back to the solely made to order and custom format.

    I started out as a children's entertainer myself, and, not finding the iridescent wings I wished for I set out to create them for myself. Inspired by the fairies of Brian Fround in Labyrinth and the gelflings of the Dark Crystal, I wanted to create wings that leaned more towards dragonflies and insects than the butterfly wings that I usually would see. My first wings were bulky, bubble and made with thin wire. I progressed later to aluminum wire with more realistic shapes and designs, and finally to their current incarnation as cut and powder coated aluminum sheet encased in iridescent film and vinyl. Seeing my dream of my work being featured in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show twice and then on Katy Perry's back for the H&M Happy & Merry campaign in 2015 was an amazing experience, and I am always trying to go further and improve my work, coming up with new techniques and items.
