You have seen what you can do with a slip dress, one of the amazing tie dye pieces or simple vintage dresses on etsy, this one is going to be about going a little wilder. Some of these fire fairy designs can also be crossed over into a Gothic Fairy, for a whole new take on the fairy look!
You have seen some of the amazing wings that are out their on Etsy and trust me there are so much more!
These great wings are from http://taeliac.etsy.com/ for $75
These are fun and slightly smaller style to make dancing easier and have a fun unusual look.
You could also do any of the black or red wings feather wings from http://eproductsales.etsy.com/
This first dress is a little splurge but think of all the places you could wear it, with its stunning design you would get a lot of attention with this one. From http://vc2o.etsy.com/ for $270
With its clean sexy look, fun flirty style and amazing color this dress is so amazing!
Or you could go with this fun look from http://onearmedscissor.etsy.com/ for SOLD
Another look would be to go with a corset with a fun skirt. This corset is stunning from http://divadivine777.etsy.com/ for $220
This is a fun and sexy look that would go great with either a simple straight skirt like this one from http://syntheticsoul.etsy.com/ for $40

I want to start with these light golden wings from http://mariaelena.etsy.com/ for $55
Any feather wings would also create a great look! I am in love with these from http://eproductsale.etsy.com/ for $149.99
Either of these wings would look stunning with this fae outfit from http://ladygrungevintique.etsy.com/ for $5
I won't lie this is one of my favorite dresses I have found in my search for costume outfits. This dress is perfect for Air or Earth Fairy costumes or even work with it for the base of another costume like Pochahantas. And what a deal for $23!!!
You could also use a pretty slip dress or tie dye piece like shown in the last pieces as well.
For your hair you can go long and loose for a flowy look, wear hair falls or even some pretty feathers in your hair.
You can also had some pretty jewelry like this necklace from http://mindyg.etsy.com/ for $68
While its made of shells, the yellow tones and windchime look gives it a airy feel, that is perfect for this costume.
Again you can also look at the colors of things like dragonflies, going for an irridescient look instead of a yellow look. A great place for inspiration is the wings from some of the shops listed and these little dragonfly earrings from http://jennysjewels.etsy.com/ for $14
Next up is the last of the element fairies FIRE!!! I won't lie I am really looking forward to it and hope I can keep it shorter then earth, but there are so many beautiful things on Etsy its hard!
After fairies, I need to decide what to do next since the Poll had a three way tie! If you have an idea or a costume question feel free to post a comment! I want to make sure you guys have lots of ideas and time to put them together for all the events coming up in the next few months.
I hope you guys are having fun and watch for more fairies!

This of course is the look of the earth, the ground, the trees and the living things. You can go two ways with this look, the first is one of Greens, leaves, the colors of spring into summer. The second would be the Earth at fall, with Autumal Colors and Fall leaves.
Look #1 Green Silk Fairy
This is the look of smooth Silk and Satin. It is rich as forest moss and as lush as a fresh ripe fruit.
This Stunning Skirt from http://piperewan.etsy.com/ for $180
is a perfect match for the corset seen in my Pirate Blog from http://themeasuringtape.etsy.com/ for $140
Add either of these wings from http://eproductsales.etsy.com/ the first are $189.99

Look #2 Red Autumn Fairy
These stunning Red Gem wings for $25 from http://littlegreenpixie.etsy.com/
Which would look amazing with this shirt from http://ermclothing.etsy.com/ for $13,
This shirt would be great with a satin skirt, a peasant skirt or even a tulle skirt to create a stunning look!
For your head you could do this crown from http://posiefairy.etsy.com/ for $15

Look#3 Flower Fairy
This is a funky look that is about fun! These beautiful wings are stunning and very unique! They are from http://littlegreenpixie.etsy.com/ for $60
They would create a great look with this dress from http://poppyart.etsy.com/ for $8.50

This is a young sweet look but you can add a little attitude like a Pixie if you like!
First you start with these super sweet wings from http://laviniawings.etsy.com/ for $20
which would be great with this fun dress http://june22.etsy.com/ for $10
You could shorten the dress, add a wide fun belt and some shimmery tights and you would be so cute!!
Don't forget your wand and tiara!!! Maybe something cute like this piece from http://faeryspellcreations.etsy.com/ for $35
These two dresses would also create a beautiful Earth Fairy look
This brown dress is from http://miabaggali.etsy.com/ for $31
It offers a classy look with great movement in the skirt and a lovely shine! Add fall leaves to the skirt, or add a pretty floral belt, a crown or hair falls and you are the perfect fall fairy.
The second brown dress is from http://dewberryvintage.etsy.com/ for $10
Again a dress with great movement and play. Add hair falls, and a wand you are ready!
If you think in terms of greens, brown, autumn colors, and go with items with a natural look you will be right on target! Don't be afraid of playing with your makeup either, glitter, and bright colors are a great way to add to this costume!
This section is going to be set up a little differently then the pirate section, instead of setting it up by price I am going to show assorted priced items in different style catagories. There is going to be the Elemental Fairies, Faire Fairies and Gothic Fairies.
I hope you find this as exciting as I do!!!
