Steampunk Fairies are a curious and exciting new interpretation of Victorian Fairies
A fairy ( fata, fay, fae, fair folk; from faery, faerie, "realm of the fays")
Most of us think of fairies as tiny creatures, flitting about on gossamer wings, waving a magic wand, but history and folklore tell a different tale.
When belief in fairies was common most people didn’t like to mention them by name and so referred to them by other names: the Little People or the Hidden People.
Many explanations have been given for a belief in fairies. Some say that they are like ghosts, spirits of the dead, or were fallen angels, neither bad enough for Hell nor good enough for Heaven.
There are hundreds of different kinds of fairies – some are minute creatures, others grotesque – some can fly, and all can appear and disappear at will.
The oldest fairies on record in England were first described by the historian Gervase of Tilbury in the 13th century.
