Mummified Fairy

Tóbal brings us the remains of one of the infamous Cottingly fairies. Knowing how nasty the little monsters are I can't bring myself to shed a tear over a display like this. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if fairies have entire galleries of mummified humans on display.

Nicely done. Love the weathering/aging on the box as well.

I've actually got something like this in the works myself. Except its a mummified house brownie rather than a fairy.

Thanks for the link , Propnomicon!
and of course these creatures are really evil...Tinker Bell was just the black sheep on faeries family.
And Phil...I would like to see yours!

BTW, Promnomicon, I've got to recommend "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," produced by Guillermo del Toro.

Everybody, if you haven't seen it - go rent it now. Scary as ish, and full of del Toro themes and references to Machen, Blackwood, etc.

I didn't realize it until now, but there may be a subtle allusion to the Cottingly Fairy photos and the 'ability' to photograph the Mi-go.

Sorry to derail. Y'all keep on rockin' in the free world.

Once again, the Fairy Deniers are bringing their best efforts to hush up the reality which we all know to be actual, if unspeakable. We shall not be silenced! Speak your fairy truths, comrades!
