Mandy and I just finished reading the “Fablehaven” series, by Brandon Mull, and she wanted to make a dark fairy costume. We started with her regular synthetic black long johns and added a pair of tall black leather boots and a dark green velvet dress from the goodwill store, which we altered significantly with scissors. We made a pair of black wings with four coat hangers, some black tights, and a lot of black ribbon.
The costume worked well. We were pleased by her transformation into a dark fairy, but are hopeful that her friends the centaurs will soon be able to unite the magic pebble with the nail stolen from the revenant in the grove, driven into the twisted tree of evil at the edge of the tar lake in the territory of Bahumat the Demon, restoring light to all that is dark.
