    Fairyland magic! Don’s design is totally original yet captures distant childhood memories from storybook illustrations. The hood with its fruits of the forest blend the character into the woods beyond, and the long, crimped hair and bare feet portray a certain innocence.Here i Feel that Don has given considerable thought to how the garment is portrayed and combined a fairy-like chiffon with the more earthly crushed velvet.

    Like your vesion, a little more modest length in the dress, also butterfly sleeve nails the femininity and innocense. Like that she is sitting on the bough of the branch in the woodland setting in deep contemplation. Absolutely beautiful!

    I appreciate that these are not the typical wings many costumers use, Don made his own shape, which is why I love fantasy costuming so much. Very nice, love the mood of the photo, no pun intended.
