Midsummer's Night Dream; fairies.

Hello, my name is Mary, and I am the Winter Fairy.

Oh, yes.  The most beautiful fairies ever.

High Drama, though I don't know what is going on here.  Neither does the King.

No dialogue needed.

Really, how cute is this?

And I think that it would be easy to go back to the costume shop.  Gather stuff: feathers, glitzy fabric, ruffles and feathers, pearls, glitter, trim, buttons, all sorts of finery.  Sew with abandon, gather and tie here, piece together there, bound by no rules; in fact creating with abandon.  Try this!  How does this work?  Does this fit the part?  Does it wiggle and flow when you flutter?  Show me how a fairy moves...

Pure Bliss.

Oh the seriousness/silliness of childhood. This just could not get any cuter.

Magic, Magic Fairies! Love the whimsy of the costumes and the faces of the girls who still believe. So glad you were there and shared it with us. Kisses to you and the Blue Fairy, too. N2

The magic of childhood touches us all doesn't it? Perhaps we need to touch it again, and again, and again.

Your little wee fairy is gorgeous!

pure bliss, as you say, and blissful fairies to wear the creations.

I LOVED the photo of the children crying, the bemused look of the king.

Those girls are precious -- really so beautiful.
