For anyone not familiar with the first Fidelia Firefly Faerie you are in for a treat. These wee minikins glow brightly after charged in bright light. Although there was a bit of tragic history related to the first release of these unique bjds, Charles of Charles Creature Cabinet still has a vast fan following that just would not let him quit and hide away from the world of dolls. There was a heartfelt demand that could not be filled by any other doll sculptor and if you have seen the precious creations of Charles Creature Cabinet you can understand why his fans would not let him disappear without reviving this spunky glowing fea. One of his staunchest supporters, Grace of Jpopdolls, was the biggest push for the reissue of the fabulous Firefly Faeries and the reason why Fidelia is enjoying another glowcoming. It is also why so many fans are getting the chance they missed the first time around.
These Firefly Faeries just fire up the sense of wonder in a way that just defies most other dolls. To be fair there are many other dolls that create this realm of possibilities in the imagination but very few others can also be a literal light in the dark.
This is what I imagine when I think of my incoming dolls cozied up in their boxes while waiting in the local post office-- the two of them are softly glowing to light up the cold darkness around them. Each is whispering to the other their excitement that they will soon be home.
I'm whispering right back at them. Your guardian is here.
(and so they did.)
I want to hold them forever!
Obviously, I'm not the only one touched by these dolls. How else would there be a reissue? However, to read a truly wonderful story of renewal you need to visit Scribble Dolls and her FFF II, Sparkles. Even if you are not a doll person it will make you tear up. So be sure to have a box of tissues handy before you read her tale here.
