Welcome to Firefly Path!
I have this silly habit. With every person I meet I imagine what they might look like in the faerie realm. As I begin to know them better their fay features become more evident to me. This is the way I design fantasy costumes, enhancing or contorting their attributes. Lifting the veil to reveal their own otherworldly beauty and enchantment they possess. There is a place somewhere between waking and sleeping where faeries play. In this twilight hour we can pass through to their world and in that short time we might be able to enjoy their glamor and learn the secrets of their society.
I hope you enjoy the journey through these costumes I create, the lore I weave, and the images the photographers have captured. Every stitch that has been sewn, every bead that shimmers helps tell the faerie's story. During the growth of Firefly Path my life has been a faerie tale. I've traveled the world with my wonderful friends to capture these mystical creatures on film. Seeking them out in castle ruins, perched in desert canyons, finding them in lush rain forests, hidden inside an ancient bathhouse, gracing palace courtyards and through it all I've learnt that dreams really do come true and I am so very happy to be sharing mine with you.

I’m soooo excited to announce that Firefly Path has created a pattern for Simplicity Patterns (pattern #8113)!
“Have an action packed princess adventure with this costume gown for miss. Pattern also includes instructions for craft foam armor, belt and crown. Firefly Path for Simplicity.”
The peachy-pink overlay laces on both sides for a medieval feel. The white dupioni dress is decorated with a wide metallic gold trim towards the the bottom hem. The apron hangs at the center front of the dress suspended by a craft foam jeweled belt and chain. Craft foam shoulder armor and crown completes the look!
Snapchat adventure (username: firefly-path) about the pattern and buying it!
The perfect addition to your gown to transport you into the fantasy realm!
Sweeping chiffon falls from the beaded collar. The cape elegantly drapes over your arms and back. This collared cape can we paired with both strap and strapless tops & dresses. (The single photo shows how the cape drapes when your arms are down.)
I recently received a beautiful gift from Magic Mirror Dolls… and I’m obsessed with her! I want to make her all the outfits!! Nanyalin did such a stellar job making her come to life. I sent her a composite of make-up features I’d like and she did a spot-on replica of my original Photoshop image! This is her “Moira” style doll – her dolls are truly a work of art. The faerie gown you see here was the first outfit that came to mind when I received her. I created a Spring gown with pearls and crystals strewn across her dress. Lilac flowers which mimic her eye color sprout throughout the dress. In a way, she lets me work out some garment ideas I’ve have had, but on a smaller scale before I make the to scale creation. I can’t wait to create more looks for her!
