Brief Description:

Leighton is Tinker Bell from head to toe. Her handmade dress is made from dresses that were headed to the dumpster for sure. However, they had potential to be something new and beautiful again. They were taken apart and sewn back together (minus the bad parts). Her wings had holes in them but were turned into something truly magical. They are embellished wth real turkey feathers spray painted gold and discarded green christmas tree tinsel. She has pixie dust to complete her look.

Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
