People Actually Believe in Faeries (Random Find!)

While I was looking for magazines for my class I saw a magazine for Fairies. Yes Fairies. There are people who believe in Fairies. I am not joking. Just as there is a community for people who make spells and practice witchcraft (which are not the same by the way), there are also people who do "Fae" magic (or magick whichever spelling fits). People believe that Faes are actually spiritual entities. They do have an origin that isn't mostly Disney. So no, Tinkerbell is still not real. I found it quite interesting as I flipped through it, that people actually go to Faerie or "Fae" conventions and dress up as faeries. This magazine is actually sold at your local Borders (if you have one). So if you don't believe me, see for yourself in the magazine section. I believe it is either in the religion or culture section. I am not lying to you the magazine does exist. (Click here if you want to see their website). This current issue has an interview with a "real life troll." I am just amazed this even exists. But I like it for the fact that they are defying the status quo of Faeries just being Disney characters. What do you think?

I don’t wish to be cynical, but, if the picture on the front is anything to go by, they do wear a lot of eye make-up, don’t they? Although I’m not saying that’s a bad thing :)
The enigmatic, masked blogger strikes again

Yes enigmatic Blogger,lol. I noticed that. Though it may not be eyeliner per se they tend to put some sort of glitter and makeup around the eye to attract attention. From what I could tell most of the time it is the hair that the attention goes to. Oh and Jodie, yes, that is what I thought originally. Lmao right back at ya

Stories like of faeries wouldn't be told if they weren't real. So... this may sound sick but I think people who started these stories from way way back must've really experienced something or encountered something. It's cool that people up to now still believe they exist. I would've thought they have become extinct since the age of the dinosaurs.

It's cool. =]

well of course. Some people werent stupid to say these stories. There is a reason for everything, that is my philosphy. I have never thought anyone would actually believe in faeries or the "Fae." But it is interesting. Thank you for posting
