About

Creating real fairies one set of wings at a time!

So, you've decided to buy some fairy wings! Congratulations on exhibiting such exquisite taste!

My name is Angelia Doyle (that's pronounced "Angela"), and I am a part-time costumer with designs of taking over the world. My own personal Weapon of Mass Distraction: Fairy Wings! Hey, a girl can dream can’t she? Although, I did learn the hard way *not* to use the phrase ‘Evil Diabolical Plan’ on my resume. Lesson learned.

How on earth did I get into making fairy wings of all things? That’s a good question! Waaaaaay back when I was in college, I was an Art Major, and I developed an affinity for the goth culture…only, I wasn’t filled with quite enough angst. I found that there was a movement of “Perky Goths,” and one of the pastimes they seemed to enjoy was making (you guessed it) fairy wings. They looked so beautiful in the online pictures that I saw, and I found my artistic side crying out to make my own pair. And make my own, I did! And then I made another pair, and another. It soon became an obsession for me, and I was swimming in fairy wings. It was at that point that I decided that I needed to start selling them or risk losing my dog forever under the piles of wings.

That’s when I opened my online venture, On Gossamer Wings.

Over the years (almost 18 of them to be exact), I’ve been inspired by everything around me from autumn leaves to stripey socks…ok, ESPECIALLY stripey socks…they make me happy!! Anyhoo, some of my favorite artists are Amy Brown, Molly Harrison, Linda Ravenscroft, Renee Biertempfel, and Nene Thomas. Their influence can sometimes be spotted in my work.

Those years of design and inhaling fairy dust have resulted in some amazing opportunities. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having my work featured in Disney’s Pixar Parade at Disney’s California Adventure Park (be sure to stop by and see them!), Faerie Magazine, my very first European fashion show at the 3 Wishes Faery Festival, and the Avalon Faery Ball in Glastonbury. Most recently, I have had the honor of having my work grace the cover of FAE Magazine!

All of my fairy wings are completely handmade by me and me alone (the darn dog won't do a lick of work). They are made using the finest materials possible. The fairy dust I use is harvested from immature, and therefore untainted, fairies. These are the sparkliest (yes, it’s a word…just ask any three-year old) that can be found, causing all wings I make to practically dance in the sunlight. If you need your wings to dance in the *moonlight*, please let me know, because those moonglow fairies are really tough to catch.

-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` Welcome to On Gossamer Wings! ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

I am pleased to offer you singularly sublime fairy wings of stylish originality! If you are pleasure-bent for the finest in fairy "art-wear" made specifically for you, my traffic-stopping, handcrafted fairy wings just can't wait to take the spotlight!

-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` About my fairy wings! ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

My wing fabric is treated with a non-toxic, environmentally friendly method which keeps it from easily developing holes or runs, thus increasing the durability of my wings!

The frames of my lovely wings are treated so that the wire will not show through under high light situations such as daylight or flash photography. I have found that the reflective quality of wire in wings can be an annoying distraction from the overall wing design.

Every pair of my fairy wings are handcrafted with the finest glitter and sturdy, rust-proof wire...and fairy dust... lots of REAL fairy dust. (Note: no fairies were harmed in the making of these wings)

They are worn back-pack style with clear elastic arm bands which will not compete or distract from your costume or clothing. If you are interested in a strapless option, please contact me directly.

Since I hand-dye my fabric, I can dye to match almost any swatch of color that your heart desires!

Special construction techniques ensure that the fabric is given extra protection at its stress points giving the owner the security that these beautiful accessories will be around for years to come.

Not to mention (and most importantly) over a thousand happy customers (including hundreds of ecstatic brides) around the world. Let me help to enhance your special occasion with a little extra sparkle!

Payment
The fairies generally like to receive payment in the form of cookies (Thin Mints being their favorite), however, the people to whom the fairies pay bills have other ideas. Go figure. Their preferred method of payment is PayPal.

If payment is not submitted within 3 days (though it is due immediately after placing the order) the transaction will be canceled, the item will be re-listed, appropriate feedback will be left, and gremlins will be sent to inhabit the back corner of your bathroom cabinet.

Orders ship once payment has been received in full. The fairies are quite firm on this as the pantry is always in need of more cookies.
Shipping
You may ask yourself, why would fairies, who can fly anywhere at the drop of a hat, have to ship wings via conventional methods? Well you see, there is an aerodynamic challenge to flying with more than one pair of wings, and we wouldn't want them to somehow misroute delivery to Kalamazoo....unless that's where you live.

I generally ship via UPS Ground service, although I can offer USPS if you prefer. Shipping time depends upon the location to which the wings are being sent. I am located in central Texas, so delivery time to either coast is a minimum of three business days.

Want your wings faster? Who could possibly blame you? I'm happy to accommodate your request. Contact me for an expedited shipping rate.

For shipments to Hawaii, I use USPS, and it takes roughly 6 - 7 days.

I am tickled 17 shades of pink to ship to other countries! If you are located outside of the US, please contact me to let me know where you are located, and I will be happy to quote you the appropriate shipping time. Please note that international buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
Any item being returned must be UNWORN, unused, and in its original condition. The studio fairies consider wings to be a very personal wearable item, and they would never allow me to resell a set of wings that another fairy has worn.

Buyers have 48 hours after receiving an item to contact me with regard to a return.

In the event of a return, the customer is responsible for any return shipping charges.

Items must be returned in their original packaging. Items squished into envelopes or boxes too small for the product will not be accepted. Unfortunately, the fairy dust used in making the fairy wings will not make them magically shrink to fit an unsuitable package.

Once the item has been returned to my studio and the fairies have determined that it is in immaculate condition, your refund will be issued minus the original shipping fees.

Custom made fairy wings are non-refundable. NO EXCEPTIONS.

While my fairy wings are extremely sturdy, and will hold up to many wearings (I have wings that I have been wearing for 5 years that still look great!), normal wear and tear with use is not covered by this return policy.

Any item that does not meet my return policy requirements will not be credited.

Please contact me if there is a problem with your item. The fairies are always eager to make sure our customers are happy!
Additional policies and FAQs
-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` How are your wings worn? ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

The fairies found out the hard way that nails and staples were NOT the way to go, so our wings are created with comfortable elastic arm loops. These arm loops allow the wings to be worn "backpack" style with clear elastic bands which will not compete or distract from your costume or clothing. If you are interested in a strapless option, please contact me directly as I can accommodate this style of wings, too.

-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` Do you take custom orders? ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

Unfortunately, I am unable to take custom orders for the foreseeable future.

-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` How do you make your wings? ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

Unfortunately, I’m bound by a non-disclosure agreement with the fairies. Ever seen a mad-as-gump fairy? Trust me, you don’t want to! My eyebrows are just now growing back.

All items are from a smoke free studio, and, to my knowledge none of my fabric has ever been exposed to smoke. I do have a mixed-breed dog and a toddler son (neither of whom smoke), so items purchased are sure to be smoke-free, but I cannot guarantee that there will not be a dog hair or a drool spot stuck to something...ok, maybe not so much on the drool.

-:¦:- (¯`'•.¸(¯` Where else can you be found on the web? ´¯)¸.•'´¯)-:¦:-

When I’m not chasing the fairies from out of the cabinets (seriously, they *do* love their cookies), I can be found in a variety of places. You can also join me on my Facebook fan page at http://www.facebook.com/ongossamerwings if you should want to know when I will be having sales, what new styles / products I’ll be releasing, or just the general welfare of the fairies.
