Colour discrepancies aside, this was my fastest challenge response yet! I tried my new dress first and thought yep, close enough; then had this skin in mind - perfect! - Decided to make a fairy and rummaged about for crazy hair, I have photos of the CHH3 prizes for quick reference and this one jumped out at me; finally just had to find wings, and once more, casually flipping through my wings folders, I tried on this pair and they really worked. So that was all four major pieces of my outfit at first try! Sunflower eyes and jewellery seemed a fitting necessity and at first I was going to try some shoes but decided that a fairy dancing in a meadow would have bare tippy-toes so as not to squash the flowers. I couldn't quite get the skin tone of the feet to match my skin and it shows on the pictures more than I would like, but otherwise I'm really pleased with the results. I went hunting for flower meadows and found this location very quickly, only realising after I'd done the photoshoot that it's part of one of the sims - Oubliette - I already have bookmarked for thorough exploration.
I love putting on pretty avatars and dancing in SL, so here I am, in my element in yellow, a flower fairy dancing in a summer meadow. Note that fairies make their dresses out of feathers, not petals, which is a romantic but impractical idea for tailoring.

This last picture shows me emerging from a magic portal behind the door of a gnome's house, which leads from inside the little jewellery store to a really amazing underground cavern full of waterfalls; just one of the many surprises in Oubliette, which is an incredible place well worth a visit and a nod to the tip-jar.
