Essential Items Every Fairy Needs At A Music Festival

Now with unicorns and mermaids taking center stage in EVERYTHING from stationery, makeup trends and even Starbucks drinks, I think it’s time that fairies take over the festival fashion scene. Here are a few things that I think are essential for festival fairies!

Glitter. Lots and lots of glitter.

Glitter for your hair, glitter for your booty, glitter for just about everything. I’ve been loving the whole disco boob trend and glittery booties everywhere! There’s no end to your creativity when it comes how to play with color and texture. Plus, what faery isn’t covered in magic pixie dust?

There are countless places to find glitter, but I’ve been salivating over The Gypsy Shrine’s products as of late.

I love seeing that this trend is making a comeback, and best of all it doesn’t damage your hair! You can go as outrageous as you want, or you can tone it back like I do and hide shimmery brown strands in my normal-op-brown hair. Plus, the look on a stranger’s face when they catch a bit of sparkle my way is priceless. I love supporting Faecraft and their lovely Fhairy Strands for my hair! If you are a huge fan of Brian Froud’s work like I am… you’ll love the packaging. 😉

Tickle Thy Fantasy Rags

By far some of my favorite costume pieces. One of their adorable halters is the perfect thing to run around in all day in the hot sun. They are comfy, breezy, super flattering, and each piece is one of a kind. They make appearances at Renaissance fairs, but calling them to see what they have in stock will be your best bet. No one at any music festival will have your  outfit on. Guaranteed.

Flower Crowns

I believe flower crowns are here to stay. They’ll forever be engrained into early new-millennia festival fashion just like fringe and bell bottoms will always be associated with the hippies. Go big and bold or more delicate to suit your style.

and finally,


Rosy Maple Moth Wings

‘Cause duh! I’ve worn larger wings to events before, and I will say that something smaller will make your experience a lot more pleasant! I hate having to worry about my costume being beaten up when I’m out and about, so playing a little closer to your back in BIG events is a good idea. You’ll feel spritely all night dancing around in them, I promise.

Don’t forget to bring lots of water and a camera to capture all the special moments.

Let festival season BEGIN!

    […] One of my nearest and dearest friends got married last month! I was a bridesmaid and part of all the festivities, but you couldn’t imagine the joy that filled my heart when my lovely Freya asked me to make her a flower crown for her reception. I don’t know if you noticed yet… But flowers are kind of my favorite thing. […]

    All of the items that you listed speaks to my spirit, especially the glitter and flower crown. Ahh! I have been dying to go to Coachella, and I will strive to go sometime within the next couple of years. I have to get it out of my system.
