A fairy (digitally edited photo).

A fairy (also faery, faerie, fay, fae) is a type of mythical being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural. Fairies are generally described as human in appearance and having magical powers.

The image of fairies in folklore is quite diverse, but in the Victorian age, a kind of "modern fairy image" evolved. In this depiction, fairies are humanoids of human size or smaller (down to doll or insect size). They are often equipped with wings (such as insect or butterfly wings), the ability to fly and to quickly (magically) appear and disappear. The Pixie type of fairy (very small, winged, playful and mischievous) is also common.

Fairies are often depicted as women, occasionally as young girls or boys (e.g. the famous Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker), rarely as adult men. They are usually attractive beings. Today, they are often found in romantic Fantasy style art as beautiful, etheric characters close to Nature.

Fairies in adult/fetish art[edit]

Although fairies are best known from children's books and films (such as Pinocchio or Peter Pan), they are also occasionally found engaged in sexual and fetishistic scenarios in adult literature, comics and manga. In such adult works, fairies are usually either completely nude or scantily clad. In fetish/BDSM works, you can find fairies wearing fetish clothing. A good example is the adult manga series Bondage Fairies.

The genre of sexualized fairies (and their interactions with each other, with objects, animals and humans) also overlaps with the Shrinking Women motif.

Related is also the genre microloli (also spelled micro loli), which refers to lolicon artwork or stories where the loli characters are miniature size, much like childlike fairies without wings. Unlike Shrunk Women, microloli characters are not necessarily shrunk, but can be just naturally small the way fairies are small.
