They look a little more complicated in design than the picture but still cute. Got here just in time!

The wings were durable and beautiful! The only thing i would have changed is i would have liked them a tad bit larger and I would have liked the lettering on both sides, as it was hard for others to catch the "ouija" concept unless they were looking at me from behind. Other than that, i absolutely love these wings and i look forward to sporting them at future events! Thanks again!!

About

I set out to make my own wings the way I thought they should look about 16 years ago.

Making them only for myself at first until I kept getting asked "do you sell them? because you should, and I want some". Working in different media my craft has progressed by trying this or that, making changes in method and technique when needed. 15 years was a while ago and my wings are better now than they have ever been and keep getting better. I strive with every set of wings I make for originality, beauty, comfort and function, to make them as much a real part of the wearer as possible. For we all had wings long ago, and in my dreams I still do...

Now, another passion is costume creation ~ You need to become THAT character, what does your inner faery do? What does he or she like? How do they speak? What do they wear? I love to design full costumes to help the true faery, alter ego or character be revealed, right down to the smallest details, and I am always inspired by my customers deepest dreams.

Please read my shipping policies for production and delivery information.
Shipping
We ship everything USPS - If you would like us to use FedEx let us know via convo or in the notes to seller box just before you submit your order - there may be extra shipping fees due before your item will ship if you want Fed Ex.

☆Your IN STOCK purchase will be shipped within 1-3 business days of receiving your order. Your package tracking number will be supplied to you within your Etsy Shipping Notification which is delivered via email. Choose your shipping option from the drop down menu at checkout BEFORE you submit your order.

☆Custom / Made to Order lead times may vary but are usually anywhere between 3- 6 weeks. My Shop announcement always has the latest information on lead time changes as it does vary by season and how booked I am at the moment. If you are placing an order for an item needed for an event or otherwise need it by a specific date - even if that date is within the stated lead time PLEASE enter it in the notes to seller box BEFORE you check out or CONVO ME and advise me of such date to ensure timely arrival. Choose your shipping option from the drop down menu at checkout BEFORE you submit your order.

☆I do not ship to PO boxes - if your ship to address is a PO box and I don't notice until I am ready to ship it will delay your order because I will have to contact you before shipping. (in the rare case you are n a rural route or otherwise only have a PO Box as an address please convo me first get approval.

☆Signature confirmation may be included on items worth $200 or more. This might require you to make a trip to the post office, but insures that your valuable purchase makes it into your hands. I may also add signature confirmation for apartment addresses, at my discretion or at the customers request.

☆I have had extremely good luck with Priority arriving within 3 days across the continental US, but please understand that in some cases shipping times can be as long as 5-7 days. In the event that you need the item by a certain time, I would be happy to upgrade to Express (the only USPS in
shipping option with guaranteed** delivery time), for an additional cost.
**Guarantee is through USPS - if your package does not reach it's destination by the date USPS specifies, I must file a claim IN PERSON with USPS to receive a refund. Once I get the refund I will refund the postage -minus handling fees*- to you.
*Handling fees are included in your shipping charges and vary per item - usually from .50 to $3 (depending on the size of the item - super large wings may be more) and covers overhead & packing time & supplies such as paper, tape, bubble wrap etc.

☆International orders Have 3 shipping options:
USPS First class international which is the least expensive but has the longest ship time which varies by location.
USPS Priority International, insured. Approximately 6-10 days to most locations. I have had good luck with Priority arriving within 2 weeks around the world, but please understand that in some cases shipping times can be as long as 4-6 weeks.
Express International
Choose your shipping option from the drop down menu at checkout BEFORE you submit your order.
☆☆☆PLEASE NOTE: International customers are responsible for any duty fees incurred at customs in their country. In some countries, these can be as much as 25% of the item price, so please familiarize yourself with your country's duty fees, VAT, etc. Under no circumstances will a package be marked "gift" OR claimed for less than actual cost. Thank you for understanding.

☆If you request any other shipping service it will be FedEx & additional charges will need to be paid before your order ships. I will not use UPS so please don't ask. The US Postal Service is the most cost effective, the fastest, and I trust the USPS much more than any other carrier ~ they are all I use and have been extremely reliable with the exception of severe and unexpected weather (specifically hurricanes, severe flooding and once a snow storm where it doesn't usually snow).

☆Please know that I reuse/recycle shipping materials as much as possible. You are likely to have bubble wrap, packing pillows, filler paper and rarely packing peanuts (PLEASE recycle, reuse again!) This is not only better for the environment but also keeps handling fees lower.

☆I do offer RUSH order options for an extra fees - I do have a standard listing so you can see the current fees however please make sure you convo ahead to see if I can indeed fit your rush in my schedule BEFORE you order. The faster you need it and the busier I am the higher a rush fee will be ~ PLEASE get your order in as soon as you possibly can to avoid needing a rush order!
*** HALLOWEEN COSTUME AND / OR WING ORDERS: Late summer into autumn is my busiest season!! Please see my shop announcement for special seasonal lead times, order information and rush fee info!!!***
Refunds and Exchanges
☆All my items are made by hand and therefore are NEVER an exact replica of another previously made piece. These artistic differences make your piece an absolute original!

☆I offer repairs on wings and some of my other items but you must pay for shipping to me (unless you find me at a faire!). Lead times vary and prearrangement is necessary, Please contact me for more information.

☆If you have any questions about sizes, colors, etc. of any item you are expecting to order please convo me! I am VERY convo friendly and pride myself on making my customers happy the first time. Most of my customers are repeat customers and
I L♥ VE them so very much!♡

☆There are no refunds ~ Approved returns will receive store credit minus shipping and 10% restock fee. I may do an even exchange on a case by case basis, for the cost of the merchandise only, shipping charges and any rush fees are not refundable and a restocking fee may apply.
I do charge a design fee of $75 in which $50 is applied to the cost of the product once ordered. However, this entire fee is NON refundable if item is NOT purchased; furthermore any and all drawings / designs you receive remain the property and copyright of Faerieworks and may not be solicited to other designers.
Custom orders typically cannot be cancelled once purchased as time, energy, creativity and sometimes supplies and materials go into an item or idea the moment of it's conception. IF a cancellation is requested and approved the $75 design fee is NOT refundable and any and all drawings / designs you receive digitally or otherwise remain the property and copyright of Faerieworks and may not be solicited to other designers.

Frequently asked questions

I will be wearing these wings at outdoor faires and festivals, What will happen to them if I get stuck in the rain - are they waterproof?

Some are more water proof than others - but for the most part - Yes! They are not going to fall apart if they get wet. I do include a care card with each set of wings I send out so you will know exactly how to care and store the wings you purchase. However, If you have questions about exactly how water proof a specific set of wings feel free to send a convo.

I love these wings but can I get them in a different color?

OF COURSE! If you want a specific color(s) on your wings just be sure to convo ahead or simply put your color requests in the "optional notes to seller" box BEFORE you submit your order.

I want wings that are different than anything I see listed in your shop currently, do you take custom orders?

Absolutely! You can either send a convo or click on the "Request a custom order" link below any listing photos or on the shops main page and we can start a discussion.

I love these wings but they are for my 6 year old - can you make them in smaller sizes?

Yes, I do! I will have listings with different sizes and pricing soon but in the meantime feel free to send me a convo and I once I know exactly what you need I can set up a private listing for you.

I would love multiple sets of wings for my wedding party to wear, can you accept multiple wings orders?

Yes, I can! Please convo to determine if I can create your order in time for your event - ordering as early as possible is definitely better.
