Wee Folk Dresses
I've traveled to Ireland twice in the last two years to collect stories about Irish fairies known as The Wee Folk, or The Good People. But they're far from good. They are the aos sí, a diminutive supernatural race on "the Other Side" driven down underground by human beings since "the start o' the world." As beautiful and ethereal as they are, they are also vicious and vindictive. Irish storytellers today mesmerize audiences with encounters that their grandparents had with the Wee Folk (usually with haunted or disastrous outcomes.) Many Irish people will tell you they don't believe in fairies, but they still won't go near a fairy rath or fort, and never, ever will they cut down a whitethorn bush. My dresses are all one of a kind, made from natural materials found on my property in Maine. They measure about two inches across and six inches tall, each with their own handcrafted hanger. Some are encased in custom shadowboxes. Each dress has its own back story, which you can find on my Journal.
