The Lawn of Fabulousness at the Fringe.

Much of the magic of the Fringe happens on the Green Lawn of Fabulousness. The beer tent is the place to go to order a beer and talk to actors and producers to find out the buzz about the top shows each year. As I was finishing up a drink and waiting for a friend, I noticed these fairy wings being created. I asked to do a sketch and she was fine with me sitting and observing. The wings made from flexible branches and light pink weave were going to be used for an interactive show happening in the evenings at the large live oak tree in front of the Mennello Museum. This wings had two battery packs which illuminated a series of tiny lights.

The wings were for Phoenix Tears Production's Stardust After Dark immersive experience.The production company featured two immersive audio dramas at Orlando Fringe. With nothing more than a smart phone and a pair of headphones they will transformed the area around Loch Haven Park into the magical Stardust Kingdom. In Stardust After Dark, which takes place in the evenings, the audience encountered two characters as they invite you to shed the mortal world and come and join them in an 18+ celebration full of pixie dust, rum, and the seductive call of a Siren.

I didn't have a chance to catch the actual show. My only hint at the magic was this pair of light gossamer wings which were crafted with loving care.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
