I have loved
faerie-lore my entire life - of course the original incarnation of
this website was at faeriewings.net - and creating costumes of these
beautiful legends and myths is still a direction I love to go in!
When I recently discovered the procedure for making resin wings, I
wanted to try it out.
The dress was
developed as a main shell with lots of embellishments using many
materials. I wanted the look of earthy, woody colors with
a cast of copper over all. This was the result, the brown and
green dress with plenty of copper glitter and metallic finishes!
made its debut at MileHiCon 2012 in Denver. I was honored with
Best in Show at that event.
