Gekko Bohotike is a lovely store based in London, United Kingdom (oh god, how I do miss London! :) that specializes in lovely pixie-fairy boho urban wear. :) Yes there are a lot of articles of this kind of clothing in yourfantasycostume I know, but that's because this is my favorite style for a daily wear, :) to be fairies and pixies in disguise! just mingling with normal people but still showing hints of our pixie-nature. :)

I love the collection of clothing and accessories, specially the layered pixie skirts, tops and dresses with points and asymmetrical  edges. There is something very earthly and unpolished in this kind of clothing that makes you root to nature even if you step on a dull city floor.

For steampunk-lovers they have all sorts of utility belts :). And also for fairy ones some useful pocket belts

Under the Ivy... delicate treasures for fairy queens! Wings, garlands and accessories

 

Under the Ivy is a store that specializes in faerie inspired products, from wings to accessories, all handmade and exuding an out of this world delicacy. You can find the store in etsy . The crafter Helen  , based in United Kingdom is a textile and surface designer with a love for faerie folk and all things magical with a gift for creating things ethereal, iridescent and delicate. I particularly love the necklaces and jewellery featuring pale wings. They are so elegant and unique!  I loved for example this one , wings are not real but made of "plactic, magic and glitter" as she states in the description, so even better knowing no animal parts were used in the making of process. The earrings, rings, hair ornaments and other accessories featuring delicate transparent insect wings are otherwordly and amazing... that´s all I can say while I crave  for them... so better judge by the pictures :)


 

And look at this  ring... isn't it just magical?

Whether you're looking for a Victorian dress, a Civil War gown, a Renaissance, Lolita or  even other costume for your themed ball, wedding or event, you've come to the right store. The dresses are beautiful dresses and will  transport you to another time and place. Good thing they are also affordable and have a rather large catalogue to choose from. Some blouses and dresses would fit perfectly also for Steampunk or Gothic lovers as they include gorgeous bustle skirts and period pieces. They make all sizes from XS to XXXL They design their own dresses. The reason that the pictures here appear watermarked is so you know that these are made by  Victorian Choice and no other, so we respect the watermark, as they have claimed some other non licit sellers to use their pictures to sell their gowns. They even have some white models that would be lovely for an alternative bride.

Talismana Designs: urban tribal style, wearable and "fantastic"!

Based in USA Talismana  Designs is a eclectic collection of handmade clothing and accessories that ranges from fantasy-elvish pixie wear to steampunk and dystopian fantasies. :)  They have a store in etsy, and the best description I can make is that you visit the site and surf among the listings. They have lovely steampunk bloomers  (some even daring for burlesque lovers) and bustle skirts, pixie-elvish wear and even tribal and fairy jewellery :) It has a fusion "vibe" ongoing in the entire collection.

Above: steampunk victorian bustle skirt belt (it ties to the waist) and matching bloomers). This one in brown but also available in other colours like green (for absynthe or green fairies)

I absolutely fell in love with this adjustable  leaf pocket belt. It looks so pixie-elvish and so useful too :). Or maybe it is because I've been a bit obsessed with greens and earthly tones lately and I keep on losing my keys too, :) bookmarked! They have also other utility belts in other colours and moods, in blacks or more steampunk-ish brown :) They also have fairy skirts and earrings with organic shapes, some inspired in fossils or plants. Very organic and faery-like.

 

Bellow some examples of their accessories.

I loved these earrings, it's a mix of an unfurling fern and ammonite fossil.

Above super-amazing necklace with raven skull replicas. I like the fact that they use replicas and not real bones. Perfect for costumes of sorcerers, very tribal and pagan looking :)

Abstractika Art Work Tribal Pixie and fairy wear

 

Above: pixie petal fairy skirt  made by Abstractika perfect for fairies, pixies, elves and bellydancers :)

Here we come again with a lovely addition to our "fairy-pixie" wear collections. :) Note that this is my favourite clothing because it's not only for fantasy costumes but also to bring fantasy costumes into your daily wear :). I am Spanish so I found delightful to see they're based in Castilla y León (in my own country). Etsy site has listings in English though encouraging international purchasing. So today we feature a lovely shop called "Abstractika Art Work". All clothes are hand made to order, so it takes some time to ship, though they always welcome contact and there are also some items that are ready to go. The crafter encourages contact to check availability on the different products, jewellery, accessories and clothing listed.  Skirts, dresses, long and short sleeved tops :) Have a look and enjoy!

 I love their pointy skirts with that ragged and ethereal look. I also like the palette of colours of their collection, most of the items are restricted to earthly tones,  mossy greens and browns perfect for elves and forest dwellers. It has also a tribal eco-friendly vibe as usually this kind of clothing has :). 

 

I love this pixie dress that you can order in different colours. :) Green or brown would be lovely :)

They feature too a quite large selection of accessories and necklaces made out of gems and embroidery in different colours. And they are gorgeous. An example below.

Lotus Moon: comfortable, pixie, urban, tribal fairywear

 


Lotus Moon is a store that specializes in wearable comfortable daily wear but with a pixie-fairy touch to it.  If you are a free spirit, like tribal clothing or simply want to be an urban fairy in disguise, this store has a super large catalog of clothing that ranges from long medieval dresses to coats, jackets, skirts and all you could need to fit your wardrobe with this style of clothing, and most importantly at reasonable prices. I need to have at hand a few pieces to make a further statement about the quality but in the pictures it looks nicely and in fact I love some of their green and brown dresses and tops, with those pointy, ragged pixie looks. :) So I've definitely bookmarked them to investigate further.

Still here are some examples and you have the link above, to get lost in their list of products which is overwhelming diverse in Lotus Moon

Above: simple fairy corset: I loved it in green and brown, very affordable and I think they're perfect as base  if you want to customize it.
Below: cyber-pixie black top with white lining and a pointed hoodie. Daring, sexy and still fantasy-like :)  The kind of things I love for my daily wear.

Above: white chemise/dress with fluted sleeves. Also available in other colors. I particularly liked the green, white and brown. I think it works great as undergarment to put a cincher or corset on top. :)

Another lovely coat in green. I want it! aw!

 

CLAMPCLAMP: Shoes for fairies and mermaids

Do you want to be an elf roaming in the forest?

Above: Elven leather armour. All accessories and clothing by Elfic Wear.

Do you prefer to be a Steampunk airship pirate?

 From the forests of a Lord of the Rings landscape to the gears and steam of a retro-futuristic setting, the shop is also a journey through different worlds and fantasies, and show also the chance to see many of the pieces worn by the designer herself (who I may say is gorgeous!) alternative model Angélica.

You would do well in networking and add Elfic Wear to your facebook favorites too. They usually make give-aways  to engage their fans and I may say I was myself the PROUD WINNER (yes random and fairly, so I'm real prove they work)  of one of their give aways. I chose myself a fur green vest and gauntlets, that you can spot in this picture of myself.

Above: me wearing green gauntlents and fur vest won in Elfic Wear contest. More pics of myself wearing it in my tumblr.

Hmm I feel tempted to go for the matching green leather pocket belt :) which I may say it's very "greenpunk" too :) with those little terrarium pots.
