Abigail Breslin as a Fairy

This is a shot of Abigail Breslin, star of Little Miss Sunshine, from the beautiful Annie Leibowitz’s series of Celebrity Fairy Tales (no, not “They are happily married” or “She’s clean and sober”) shot for Disney. The House of the Mouse may range far from its origin in children’s entertainment sometimes, but when they come back to what they do best, they always seem to do it pretty darn well. And in this case, they’re doing good, too (see Mauswitz, Duckau, and other such endearing aliases for the unbeloved corporate behemoth that is the Disney conglomerate).

Fossilized FairyFairies, particularly, are in desperate need of a PR boost right about now, and here comes Disney to the rescue. After nearly a century of being fobbed off as ridiculous, amateurish hoaxes perpetrated upon aging sentimentalists, suddenly the tide is turning. First the emergence of the Fairy Fossils, then the actual Mummified Fairy Remains which were then made available to scientific researchers via eBay, and now the stunning new photographic proof in the Natural History Museum of the UK; it is clear that, just as the Twentieth Century was the Age of Progress, so the Twenty-First Century is becoming the Age of Fairies.

I for one welcome our new ethereal overlords.

One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

Boobalicious Teri!

Did I frighten you with this picture?  I’m so sorry, take a second to catch your breath.  There, all better now? 

Halloween is a time for scary, so you can’t blame me for trying.

But seriously, I think the idea of daughter and mom dressing within a theme for Halloween is super fantastic. Especially a theme from such a worthy literary work.  Glinda approves.

Teri’s makeup?  Pretty cool. 

Her daughter’s dress? Very cute.

The Queen of Hearts costume itself? Way fab.

However, are you guys seeing what I’m seeing in this picture?

Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone!
