A Faery Hunt returns as contender for Nickelodeons's 2010 Best Children's Theater

Every weekend, Fairy Trail Theater leads enchanted guests—dressed in their finest fairy atire—along Los Angeles parkways in search of the elusive nature spirits.

"As if on cue," writes ParentsConnect, "one likable character after another magically appears from behind trees and shrubs until a whole extended family of fairies (and the occasional troll) has gathered to play out an entertaining drama."

Also known as A Faery Hunt, the troupe won last year's award for Nickelodeon's Parent Pick for Best Children's Theater in Los Angeles. This year, the group has secured a second nomination and requests that fans help them win again by voting for them.

Vote at Nick's site.

Tomorrow (August 31) signifies the last day of voting.

Interview w/ World of Fairies costume vendor

"This is [Suzan] Mianowski's fourth year creating and selling costumes as a vendor, Brigit's Hearth, at the World of Faeries Festival. 'The festival itself encourages people to dress up because that makes it even more fun. The more people that dress up like fairies, the more fun,' Mianowski said."

Fairy Sand Project

As images of oil-soaked animals and shorelines pour in from the Gulf, many people feel moved yet helpless to make a meaningful difference, especially those for whom large donations or volunteer work isn't feasible. Fairy Woodland, a leading provider of hand-crafted fairy houses, has an idea to fight the apathy. They plan to send fairy houses, built with sand from beloved waterways all over the country, to the ailing coast.

"Please send us a little sand from your favorite beach," the company explains. "Or from the lakeshore where you first fell in love, or the river bottom where you stand to fly fish. Someplace that is special to you, that touches your heart, that is a healing place for your soul."

"Send your prayers, energy, love, for the Gulf and all her creatures with the sand – and we’ll use it to build Fairy Houses that will go to live at the Gulf and bring all your prayers and healing energy to those waters.

While the act might not make any obvious or direct impact on cleaning up the coast, it gives like-minded people the chance to express their sorrows, hopes, and support. Especially for children worried about affected marine life, The Fairy Sand Project can provide comfort. "We happen to believe that love made into physical form, is powerful magic," the company says.

The project will also spread environmental awareness. Every piece of sand donated represents a cherished memory, a poignant reminder of what humanity stands to lose.


  • 1/4 cup sand in a sealed container (a ziploc works great)
  • label where it's from
  • why the place is special to you
  • email address for project updates

Send some sand!

Edgy, darker fairies growing popular

Perhaps inundated with sugary images of Tinkerbell and her ilk, people seem more and more interested in darker fairies these days, if new products say anything about consumer interests.

"I think we agree that we’ve had enough of vampires, with their silly adolescent crushes and improbable musculature... Fairies, on the other hand, allow for more interesting possibilities, especially when in the hands of Cornelia Funke, the author of the Inkheart series, and Eoin Colfer, the creator of the boy genius Artemis Fowl," writes The Telegraph's Toby Clements.

In Artemis Fowl's latest adventures, The Atlantis Complex, Colfer – who describes his books as "Die Hard with fairies" – subverts the fairy-as-nature trope and turns them into technologically advanced, violent beings. Atlantis Complex refers to a psychosis common in guilt-ridden fairies, a condition from which protagonist Artemis apparently suffers. Will this prevent Artemis from saving the planet with its human and fairy inhabitants?

"In Reckless, Cornelia Funke creates a world in which characters from fairy tales take on twisted forms of life," Clements writes. For years, protagonist Jacob Reckless years has escaped to another world via a magical mirror, a world filled with fairies, witches, and stone men (one scratch will turn a human into stone). In a quest to find Jacob's younger brother, the Dark Fairy has entranced the stone men and unleashed havoc.

"This is for older children because, along with the nightmarish gothic stuff," Clements notes, "there is the suggestion that Jacob spends the night with a fairy." While Funke's antangonistic fairies might seem somewhat a recent invention, they actually mark a return towards the traditional fairy tale, wherein fairies caused at least as much trouble as they did good. Many people, however, remain unaware of fairies' true past, because companies like Disney® have whitewashed the original stories to make them more suitable for modern youth.

Ultimately, though, the renewed interest in the mischievous fairy doesn't come as a surprise. Every now and then, it's only natural to balance light with a little bit of dark, just to keep things real and interesting. Take our very own Fairy Ravanna, for example [picture at top of article]: "All of us have a hidden side of our nature, but rare is the person who is conscious and accepting of their shadow."

Lions and tigers and fairies!

Last week the Fairy Girls Club™ of Tampa kicked off their charity fundraiser in support of Tampa's non-profit Big Cat Rescue. The 45-acre wild cat sanctuary supports 140 felines, representing 16 different exotic species including tigers, lions, and snow leopards. Rescued animals have survived abusive backgrounds such as fur farms, breeding operations, performing acts, or abandonment.

"We hope to make a large contribution when we tour their facility at the end of August," events fairy Robyn Cancio stated. "For years, Fairy Line's lineup has included Fairy Queen Zadhara, Protector of Animals," another employee noted. "It only makes sense for us to help out animals in need."

Fairy Girls Club's latest fundraiser demonstrates the group's continued commitment to make positive changes within the community. The club provides young girls with great field trips, such as the upcoming visit to Big Cat Rescue. "We're also thinking of having a Fairy Forest Adventure (with a raw foods picnic) before school starts again in August," founder Dr. LindaJoy Rose said.

The proceeds from fundraising purchases will directly benefit Big Cat Rescue. For more information on how to get involved, email Robyn Cancio at robyn@fairyline.com.

Natural summer beauty tips

Summer means more sun and less clothes. Feel confident by bringing out the best in your skin using our all-natural, moisturizing skin products.

Fairy Line Naturals™ bronzers accentuate all the right places without the need for toxic (and costly) cremes. Our bronzers can:

» moisturize and replenish your skin,
» bring out your skin's glow,
» highlight your best qualities, and
» create a look of fullness and health.

The diagram shows you how to alternate two bronzers to enhance your chest. As described, you will need a bronzer darker than your skin tone, and a bronzer lighter than your skin tone.

We suggest using our exclusive Precious Gold as your lighter bronzer and Be Bronzed as your darker one. A soft dusting of our aromatherapeutic Fairy Dust for Magical Dreams adds a unifying layer of sparkle. Fairy Dust also works great as your lighter bronzer.
