Most of the time, when you see artistic renderings of faeries, they are often dressed in gossamer lengths of fabric or somewhat primitive outfits made from leaves and flowers, with simple flower garlands on their heads. While I’m sure the artists have seen faeries dressed like this, most of the time they aren’t invited to the important faerie balls and other fancy events. For these royal occasions, it is important to have the latest in faerie fashion!

J.A. Early Riser and T.J. Crayons have sent some of their tiny friends into the homes of the most well-to-do faeries, who came back with vivid descriptions of the best in faerie fashion. In Faerie Trimmings, you get to peek into the closets and jewelry boxes of faerie princesses, contessas, and well-to-do ladies. Headdresses, masks, mirrors, necklaces, and even bottles and flower arrangements are laid out in careful detail on the pages of this book.

faerie-trimmings-backSadly, J.A. and T.J. made one small mistake and sent only their color blind spies. Granted, they were the smallest and least likely to be caught, but it means all of the lovely trimmings are without color. Your color is needed to bring these fancy accouterments to life!
