Rainbow fairy costume fromOnce Upon a Time, 2011-12, FIDM Museum & Galleries
Once Upon a Time’s costume designer Eduardo Castro and assistant costume designer Monique McRay have been nominated for the 2012 Emmy for Outstanding Costume Design.  I don’t watch the show, so I don’t know if this costume was from this year or last year.  It’s very unique, though.
I’ll put this under the “movie” tag because I don’t have a tag for TV.
Here’s a sketch for what appears to be another rainbow fairy:

Dress by Oscar de la Renta, 2011 New York, the Mint Museum
I don’t know what I think of this one, but it’s a new acquisition at my local museum.  If you’re in the area and you’ve never been there (the one on Randolph Rd), they’ve got a wonderful costume collection, especially for a severely underfunded museum in the New South.
