Love Letter by Lillyxandra Love Letter by Lillyxandra
The Masquerade Fairies Collection is made up of four fairies, Brittany as the Blue Masquerade Fairy, Vani as the Indigo Masquerade Fairy, Adella as the Lavender Masquerade Fairy, and myself as the Pink Masquerade Fairy. Every girl deserves to be treated like a princess. I derive so much joy from turning my friends into these mythical characters for a day, dressing them in beautiful gowns and placing them in an environment to match. This is a dream project in collaboration with Photographer Indigo ([link]). With the talent of Indigo, the beauty of these ladies, and help of my friends we have brought these fantasies to fruition!

Each gown was designed to be something that encompasses my vision of what fairies would wear to a Masquerade Ball. When designing the four fairies I sketched out the things that first come to mind when you think of the classic fairy princess: butterfly-shaped wings, flowing gowns, and long, wind-swept hair. These are the creature you find in castle courtyards, hedge mazes, and royal gardens. Pruned and proper, elegant and refined, every gem, every flower, was thoughtfully placed to work in harmony creating the visage of a fairy princess in full regalia.

- The Pink Masquerade Fairy -

This is exactly what I wanted to look like when I was seven haha! The inspiration for this costume comes from all the girly dolls from the 80's I played with as a child. “Lady Lovely Locks” and my princess “Barbie” dolls. I placed gilded apliques of flowers and vines growing up the bodice. Butterflies were also used multiple times though out the design. They are attached through out the skirt, the center of the chest, and finally the classic butterfly wings.

We chose the USC clock tower for the photoshoot location, it looks like the court yard of a castle. The carved pillars, and bubbling fountain were perfect!

When I saw this picture on the front page I literally thought that this was a doll. The only thing that gave it away was the hands. Otherwise I would have been completely fooled into thinking it was a Japanese ball jointed doll, because some of those I've almost believed to be real people too. Beautiful craftsmanship and sewing, the photo is beautiful too. Great work, really.

It's all nice and all that you dress other people, which btw, they all look gorgeous, but I like it better when you wear your own costumes even more. =D
