After a winter storm in Maine, this fairy appeared upon a fir bough. She is a moon deity and her role in the rath involves change, intuition, magic, visions. She is a seer, and the Queen depends on The Snow Angel to read the air and earth and tell when spring will arrive so they can leave their underground quarters and emerge into the woods once again.
This dress is a hybrid of my Wee Folk dress and my literary dress styles. Ironically, I found a life-size version on this dress in Belfast, Maine at Northwoods Gourmet Girl, a home goods and food store. You can see the same birch bodice, a tulle skirt and wings.
Made from birch, tulle, and silk petals with real feather wings.
