A Strawberry Fairy

Strawberry Fairy by Cicely Mary Barker

Cicely Mary Barker was an English illustrator who painted flowers with innocent joyful fairy children. Clothing and character of each fairy represented the flora in each illustration. When I saw this little strawberry fairy card, the idea of dressing Milou up as a strawberry fairy for her birthday party just walked into my head. Well, designers of her costume obviously were not as meticulous as Barker with the details but Milou looked like a real strawberry fairy in the end. Here are some of the pictures I took. I just wanted to share them with Princess Milou's fans. Enjoy.

This baby and toddler strawberry costume includes the red dress with ribbon straps and a green leafy collar, the matching leafy headband, and the white glittering wings. For further information about fairies don't forget to visit
