I was unsure whether to post my question here or in the garb section, so here goes.

Me and a friend of mine are planning to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival this year as faeries and these outfits will be our first self-made/put together garb and it'll be our second festival. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on the sort of accessories or little details that an earth faerie (myself) or a water faerie (my friend) could wear or carry to help enhance our garb. Any advice will be very welcome and if you need any specifics on the outfits to help, I’ll try and give them to you in the best of my ability.

Obviously, lots of blues for the water faerie and greens for the earth faerie.

I don't know if I can post this here since it's a merchant link thing (and if I can't, somebody tell me and I'll remove it) but I just bought some amazing dangly shiny necklaces from {Link moved to "Faerie Links" by Mod~FF} on Etsy that I plan on wearing with my faerie garb.

One of the things i do is have a bunch of pretty silk scarves that I drape through and along my belt. And a strand of bells that I hang from either my belt or my wings so I jingle wherever I go.

Michaels (or other craft stores) is great for those long leafy garlands that you could use to drape yourself in or something. Or just for leaves and flowers to hang from your garb. Same goes for water faerie, I've seen seashells there and netting and that sort of thing that would work for a water faerie.

I might be able to come up with better ideas if I knew what you all were planning on wearing. :)

The ideas that analise mentioned are good, but can you give us more details on what the both of you will be wearing?

I'll also be doing a type of non-winged water fae for next year, more specifically a selkie, and I'm using a lot of blues and greens for some of the color scheme. Maybe carry some sort of animal creatures that go with the respective elements? Like a sea turtle for water and a squirrel for earth. Rock jewelry could also be useful for the earth theme.

Since it's been mentioned that a better idea of what we're wearing might help, I took a pic of my outfit in it's most basic form for any others who might like to help. I don't have any pics of my friends progress yet, but I might be able to explain some of it.

The sleeves are separate from the top and are meant to be tied onto my upper arms with leather lacing. I'm little nervous about it since it's a bit...bright. It's not at all finished and I also have some modifications planned for the top.

My friend’s sleeves are similar but are more like the sleeves you’d see on a furisode (swinging sleeve) kimono. She has a shortish black skirt with flowers painted and pearls sewn on. Over that she'll be wearing a blue gradient half skirt. Overall, her garb might display a bit of Japanese influence as she's considering wearing a obi as well.

Hopefully this information helps.  :-\

Awesome job thus far! Others have given you some great advise as well. What I'd also suggest is looking at fairy art work. You can get a Lot of inspiration from looking at a bunch of sites that show paintings and the like. It'll even help give you ideas for make up too. There are a bunch of sites listed in our "links" thread that'll help give you a good start. Amy Brown has an awesome imagination, as do many others.

It all basically comes down to what catches your eye and what you are willing to wear/ put together. Good luck! Let us know how your progress goes.  ;D
