Black Fae May has officially arrived!!!
Over here at Earth and Fire, we’ve been working hard creating some new fantasy pieces inspired by #blackfaeday and #blackfaemay. If you haven’t heard, Black Fae Day, which takes place on May 8th, is a day where black cosplayers, makeup artists, crafters, and writers share their creations in the realm of fantasy and lore.
We’ve decided to go beyond the single day and keep the magic going throughout the entire month of May. The significance of #BlackFaeDay and #BlackFaeMay is to create a space that showcases black people as fairies, mermaids, witches, elves, and other mythical creatures and increase our representation in a realm we aren’t commonly seen. We believe Black is Magical and hope you enjoy what we were able to produce.
Inspiration and instruction for fairy wing assembly came from Fancy Fairy.
