21. Item #23: Moon Fairies
Item #23: This morning, my daughter Maison reported having seen a “moon fairy” while I was sleeping last night. As you know, the rarely-seen moon fairies are mischevious, nocturnal creatures who participate in synchronized, representational flight. Using a long exposure and flashlights, (or other movable light sources) photograph these elusive beasts.
To win GISHWHES, it’s not necessarily about how many items you complete, but how well you complete them. Photos of high quality and aesthetic have the chance of earning more points than several rushed items. Misha Collins has frequently said that most winners didn’t complete the most items. Margo, of Team Purgatorgy, was a former winner of the hunt because of the great care she takes in making her photos unique.
