Bubblegum Fairy

Worn at: Nuit Blanche 2008
Worn by: Myself
Inspired by: Fairies, two-toned organza

One of my first original designs, I originally drew what I wanted this to be in an “art piece”. When we decided that we were making fairy costumes to run around Nuit Blanche in (an all-night art festival that takes place over the entire city of Toronto), I decided to actually get it made. There’s approximately 30 hours of hand-beading in this sucker, and I even made the shoes myself. I was rather proud of it, though there are some things I wish I’d done better. Oh well!
