I know some of you like to buy your costumes, while others like to make them. Here are some ideas for great fairy costumes. Having done a lot of research and projects in the field, I can sincerely recommend the following instructions:
Simple Black- From Threadbanger
Best I've Seen by Emilie Autumn
These are more simple, but are also very sturdy and pretty.Fancy Fairy The strap and wing attachment is very clever and I prefer this one because you can tie it under your costume for that "invisible" look. Plus it doesn't chafe.
Have fun with the costumes. I'll be back with some more fun ideas for Renaissance and Halloween costumes later. Thanks.
