Fanciful Fairy Clothing
Fairy clothing and looks?
Do fairies even care about their “Image”… and looks?
Well that, of course, depends on what types of fairies you’re talking about, and how much they have been around mortals. Because the beings of nature (which are often known as fae or fairies) are mimics. How they love to copy – whether nature itself, or perhaps you.
Even though the spirits of nature have different forms (or are even formless) there are those who are a tad different – those who are the most close to the dimensions of earth. They are the fae of the earth element; and sometimes those of water.
They are the ones mortals may be most familiar with, being closer to you. Closest to the earthly plane. The ones you tell many a tale about. The ones you like to show in your art as having fabulous wings, lovely fairy clothing and gowns. But…
Are those things the true fairy clothing, the true fairy look?
Perhaps in a way. For some.
The forms of the beings or spirits of nature, although different in substance, are just as formful to fae, as human forms are to humans. And so fae have, in a way, their own sense of Image, their own preference in looks. And fairy clothing. At least some do.
So just for fun, we have explored the fantastical fairy image, the looks different fae may like best. Let us take a look at some of the frivolous and practical parts of a fairy's clothing and looks. And how nature beings may try to show themselves to others. To mortals (if they can) – maybe to you.
Allow me to point you in the right direction, where you may read more…
How Fairy Faces Look
-- What do you think of as beautiful? Well to fae, the ideal fairy image for some beings may be something quite different than what you might prefer. Although others may be quite similar. To fairies, looks are tied up with one’s inner essence (and that is how they see you) thus to fae, beauty is certainly more than skin deep. Not that spirits of nature have skin, precisely. But you understand the idea I’m sure. Take a look at a few fairy pictures of faces on this page, and you might just understand what I mean.
Unforgettable Fairy Eyes
-- Many have said, “Oh if only I could look into the eyes of a real fairy!” Eyes are, after all, a very important part of one’s looks, even more so than any gown or clothing. But there are a few things to know, should you suddenly come upon a fae in a forest or garden, for instance. And their unusual eyes are one of those things to be aware of.
Fanciful Fairy Hair
-- You can imagine that the hair of a being of nature would not be just like yours. Often not at all. Their hair can be actual offshoots – of nature itself. Things that spring up or burst from their heads in quite an unusual way. Sometimes unusual even for fae. And of course, it may often suddenly be changed along with a change of fairy clothing.
The Gorgeous Fairy Gown
-- And do beings of nature actually wear gowns and such? Well some do not, of course. A fire fae, for instance, would simply burn its dress, so it would be pointless. But there are those near to the earthly planes where the veil is thin, who watch. Who observe. Who mimic. And too, fae can have rather outrageous imaginations. And their own definite sense of fairy clothing. Sometimes the results are quite beautiful. See just what a fairy gown might look like. If one is worn at all.
Showy Fairy Shoes
-- Why would fairies wear shoes? Well mostly, most don’t, being different types of beings and all. But then again, when it’s time for the fairy Image to get showy, shoes are an excellent way.
Beautiful Fairy Wings
-- What about wings, then? Do fairies really have them? Or even need them? (Not really). But oh what fun they are, and what fun to design and decorate and match with fairy clothing. And copy. Take a look.
