Wow those are super!  The outlet plug trick is very clever! 

You might try a translucent acrylic paint that you apply with a brush.  I think some companies have ratings for the opacity of their paints, so you could look for one with low opacity.  Ah, maybe try Golden brand, I think they have those ratings AND I think they have iridescent paints!

That works :)

We might need different material for the tabs, here in the UK...but I imagine a plastic package of some kind would work. A lot of soup pots (plastic ones) have little tabs on them that might work...

I think it's these: "Child Safety UK Plug Socket Covers Mains Electrical Protector Inserts Guard"

The pins are are the same shape in the UK as the USA except the USA only have two pins. In Europe the pins are more cylindrical so probably wouldn't work

I went to my dollar tree yesterday and didn't see any dolls with wings.  But they had some Cutie Mark Crews so I picked those up.  I'll have to try another dollar tree this weekend.

One of those plastic things you put in electrical outlets for babyproofing purposes. I tend to call them "outlet covers."
Here's my ACNH creator code. I thought I might share it, since I have quite a few pony designs.

So true!!  :lol:

I have been scanning ebay here in the UK for inexpensive fairy dolls to harvest wings from (ooh, that sounds kinda creepy?) but cannot find the exact dolls that starrynights found; can anyone help? Do these dolls have a label saying who their manufacturers are? Their wings are so flutter-compatible!!!

Hi there, they're kelly clones made by Greenbrier International for sale at Dollar Tree.

https://www.dollartree.com/pretty-sweet-fairy-dolls/164370
They're listed as pretty sweet fairy dolls but they are commonly sold in different packaging under different names, with different clothes and eye paint, and varying wing molds.
Sadly they aren't for sale on the website right now but they may be in the future - you usually have to buy bulk if buying from the dollar tree website though,
