Blue Fairy Cosplay

So my daughter said she wanted to be a fairy for Tex. Ren Fair this year. We will be going the weekend of 1001 Dreams. I was and am okay with what she wanted. So the next step was what type of fairy. I made her do some research and told her we should come up with an original type. So for two weeks she poured over flower books, insect books, elemental books, and a few fay encyclepedias. She finally chose a type of butterfly it is local to our area.

Limenitis arthemis

The Limenitis arthemis also known as Red-Spotted Purple or White Admiral. So we are basing her colors of the one pictured above the Red-Spotted Purple.
So the following is the Work in Progress, we are finally at painting of her wings stage and then it will be time for a photo shoot of all the completed pices. We also are making a prop weapon based of a Sewing needle for her.
Enjoy the pics:

Sward Construction: Sewing Needle

It is now covered in paper machae clay I plan to get update pics today on it. The plastic tip is actually from one of those giant novelty pencils. It fit perfectly so we are using it. I am not even sure how to get those without having to buy those pencils. We will have more pics on Friday!
