Fairy Camp

A few years ago Judi DeSouter sent me this photograph, enclosing a note that said, “These remind me of your fairies, but without the wings. Enjoy!”

Fairy Camp, unknown location

 These girls seem transformed by their costumes and their personalities really come through in the picture. The amount of detail in the outfits is impressive, with each one being unique, right down to the little caps. I love the baggy knees on the cotton stockings. This must have been taken about 1920, judging by the hair and clothing styles. The crepe paper basket being held by one of the girls is similar to some party baskets that I found in my grandmother’s things.
