Faerie Festival, in which I almost get wings


I promised I'd post pictures of myself from the Faerie Festival. Here is the outfit my amazing friend, Kristy, sewed for me. She is sort of like Martha Stewart but more impressive because she has seven children. One Halloween she sewed herself a Snow White costume and then sewed matching dwarfs outfits for all of her kids. I'd like to see Martha haul seven kids around the neighborhood without losing any. But I digress.

This is why the festival was so fun--cool authors to hang out with! This was one of the few author events I've been to where I was actually friends with all of the authors (and the booksellers) before I got there, so it felt like a party. Here I am with Aprilynne Pike, Janni Simner, James Owens, and Brandi from Changing Hands Bookstore.
And here I am doing a reading from My Fair Godmother. You can tell I'm an autumn fairy because I'm wearing brown and all the grass around me is mysteriously dead. This is why autumn fairies don't get invited to many social events.

Ha! I love love love it. YOu are a total babe! And can I just say that of all the fairy, faerie (do you have to be in the cool crowd to spell it that way?) anyway, of all those books, I LOVED yours the most.

It's still on my DO NOT TOUCH shelf.

Your costume is fabulous! And what a great looking group. I'm so sorry I couldn't come.

You look adorable. I should have come down from Flagstaff, darn it!

And I don't think Martha could handle two kids, let alone seven, so applause to women who can.

Love the costume. You should wear it to all of your book signings. BTW I think Autumn Faeries are the best.

You look awesome! So do all the other authors. How fun!

I've read Aprilynne's book too. I'll have to add the others to my enormous pile of to read books. I'm going to be a busy girl. =)

Your costume is very Ren Fair-ish. Are the other two authors local, too?

Janni lives in Tucson, Aprilynn lives in Phoenix, and James lives up in the White Mountains. I'm very jealous of him from May-October.

Your Martha Stewert friend reminds me of my mom! (my mom loves to sew and I am one of eight children)
You look fant-abulous as a fairy!

You look so pretty! And wow--your friend MADE that? As a person who sadly cannot even mend a button, I'm not sure if I should be ridiculously impressed or absolutely self loathing. Probably a little of both. :)

I really wish I lived a little closer so I could have attended--but thank you for sharing so I can live vicariously though your blog. :)
