the ghillies

4

We also heard the winner in the gear design division from the Famitsu Magazine contest was this ghillie-suit outfit designed by Puroron from Hyogo, Japan.

This classic survival style outfit is combined with a bold seaweed-style. We heard this item will be added to the shops via the November 23rd update.

IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME AGAIN! My birthday is next week and I thought it would be fun to host a giveaway at the same time to celebrate all you guys still following me.

The Signs as Types of Fairies pt 2 (Earth)

Taurus - Brownie (brùnaidh)
Brownies are ususally solitary fairies seen alone or in small groups. You will mostly see male Brownies because only few of them are married. They have brown hair and brown clothing which covers their 2 ½ to 3 feet tall bodies. This fairy works in the night at rural homes and farms for only one family, to which they may become attached. Brownies love food, especially cakes with honey, corn muffins or a bowl of milk. However, if you mistreat them in any way they will either leave or play tricks on you.

Virgo - Elf
Elves are described as youthful looking men and women who are actually quite small. They are of great beauty and live in forests, caves or springs. They are often believed to be long-lived or immortal and to have magical powers. This kind of fae loves fun and they can’t bear a life without joking or playing tricks. Sometimes they seem to exaggerate their behaviour but they are truly good-hearted and their laughter is a beautiful music for the ears of humans.

Capricorn - Ghillie Dhu
Ghillie Dhu is Gaelic and translates to “dark haired lad” or “dark servant”. Those fairies are male solitary spirits whose task it is to protect the woodlands. They’re most active by night but when they sleep, they are keeping themselves warm in a round nest consistent of plant fiber. Berries and nuts are their main nutrition. They avoid contact with all humans due to their shyness but they normally are friendly and harmless sprites. Ghillie Dhu’s have a gentle devotion to children and are reported to help lost people finding their way back.

Scottish myth and folklore

The Ghillie Dhu or Gille Dubh is a faerie, a guardian spirit of the trees. He is kind to children, but generally wild and shy. Said to be dark haired, he is described as clothed in leaves and moss.. He especially likes birch trees, and is most active at night. In lore, this solitary spirit is said to reside primarily near Gairloch and Loch a Druing.

Prince William joined his father at Balmoral for the annual Ghillies Ball, which is thrown for the staff of the royal residence.

Held by successive monarchs since the days of Queen Victoria, the dance is one of the highlights of the royal calendar.

The party is held in the Ballroom of Balmoral Castle, the largest room in Queen’s private and most beloved residence, which is decorated with Highland scenes by Landseer and Carl Haag as well as silver statues by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm.

Invitations to the Ghillies Ball are hugely sought after – sent to estate staff, a handful of the Queen’s closest neighbours on Royal Deeside and notable members of the local community.

Unlike other royal functions, the sovereign and members of her family mingle and dance Scottish reels arm-in-arm with their guests.

A Royal source said: ’Prince William came up to stay with the Queen at the castle to go to the Ghillies Ball on Thursday night. Everyone had a great night. The Queen will be here until the second week in October’.(x)
