Welcome to the Vale of Faeries, a magical realm of flowers hidden from the world of the “big people.” Here Thumbelina and her prince ride fireflies and their friends dance on bright petals. But Thumbelina did not always live here. Once upon a time, there lived a woman who wanted a child very much. After wishing and hoping, she finally went to a faerie and begged her to grant her wish. The tiny faerie smiled, and said “Oh that can be managed. Here is a magical seed. Plant it to obtain your wish.”



The woman thanked her and went home, and in the flower pot grew a beautiful red flower. When she kissed it, the leaves unfurled to reveal a delicate, tiny maiden upon its petals. She gave the little girl the name Thumbelina, for she was as small as a thumb. Thumbelina was very happy in her home. But one day, an evil toad saw Thumbelina singing softly and said, “What a pretty wife she will make for my son!” He stole Thumbelina away that night, and kept her on a lily pad island where she could not escape, for she was too tiny, and had no wings to carry her away. The ugly toads told her that she must marry their son, but she did not want to.



When Thumbelina was singing sadly, a giant glowing firefly danced above to her song. She watched him fly and it made her wish that she could soar away from her troubles. Then a school of fish swam by her lily pad, and saw how sad she was. When they heard Thumbelina’s story, they said, “No, this must not be!” and chewed at the root which held the lily pad in place. Thumbelina floated down the stream with them, and finally departed far down the way. She lived in a little hollow that summer, drinking dew from the leaves, eating honey from the flowers, and playing with large white butterflies. But one day, as winter was coming, there came the ugly evil toads! They caught her, and told her that she would never run away again. Thumbelina cried out, and suddenly her friend the firefly swooped out of the sky. The toads leapt back in surprise, and he carried Thumbelina away from them. When she was on his back, the firefly said, “Will you come with me Thumbelina? I will take you to a beautiful place, my home.” And she smiled, and they flew through the night sky.



Then the firefly flew through forest and the mountains, and at last they reached warm lands, where the sun shines brightly and the grass grows green and lush. Thumbelina saw children playing and butterflies flying below. Then they reached a blue lake, and beside it stood an ancient white palace. Here the firefly landed, and told Thumbelina to pick a place to live. “You can choose one of those lovely flowers,” he said, and she was very happy. When she landed on a large white flower, she gasped in amazement, for there hovering on delicate wings was a tiny man her own size! He was delighted to see Thumbelina, and told her that he was the Prince of this land. He asked her to be his wife, queen over all the flowers, and gave her a pair of wings. She said “Yes,” and all the flowers opened to reveal numerous faeries. They flew around her in joy, and the Prince and his new Princess fluttered about with them. And they lived in the Vale of Faeries happily forever after.

This has to be one of the most beautiful mocs I've ever seen. I can't stop looking at all the subtle details and dainty techniques you've used to create it all. Superb work and highly inspiring to me. I wish I could build like this.

Regarding Blake's comment about how it looks relatively bare: I really think in this case it is an artistic choice, and not a shortcoming of the model itself. The whole model has a certain aesthetic of being crisp and bright without looking cluttered, which highlights some of the beautiful flowers that have been created. I think that adding extras to the model would have just made it too busy, and not nearly as delightful.

Hmmm, I am loving this. Eye candy indeed, great colors, great parts usage. Your score = 5

Mr. Mayo, this is absolute eye-candy! The connections and part usage is some of the best quality that I have seen. My one major nitpick is that it looks relatively bare. Some additional details in the landscape or some faerie houses would easily have brightened the atmosphere. Score: a solid 4
