Over the last few weeks my college project has evolved from me, to the vintage, to 50s glamour, to fascinators, to bows, embroidery and finally flowers. Maeve who is also in my class has based her project on her love for anything glittery and not quite ordinary which led her to fairies and pixies. We combined the two and decided to recreate the Fairy “hoax” that Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths created in 1916.
We went down to the moorhead Botanic gardens in Newcastle to see what we could find
Lovely flowers so far but no fairies
sshhh what’s that (ok I’ll stop being silly now)
Look what we found!
We placed the all around the gardens outside and in the greenhouses
Then we really got into the spirit of it for the next part of the shoot
What about you? Do you believe in fairies?
