♣ About



Hedgefairy Tales is a blog about carving life into an untamed, custom fairy tale without loosing footing in reality. On a budget.

I’m Ari Baker aka. Hedgefairy. I started this blog in 2009 as a way to come out of my shell, maybe build a tribe with likeminded people and write about the things that make me truly happy.
By day I’m a student of Roman provincial archaeology, European culture studies and a general history nerd. By night I’m an artisan, feminist hipster and freelance illustrator.
Things I enjoy writing about most are sustainability (despite being a confirmed city mouse) and thrifting (easier by being a confirmed city mouse), DIY, Mori and Dolly Kei subculture and my most time-consuming hobby, LARP. Things that also feature are food, my friends, witchcraft and my adventures in general.
And moss macros.

My favourite film is 10 Things I hate about You, closely followed by Hellboy: The Golden Army. I also have a hippie boyfriend and a deep-rooted love for pangolins and bathing.

Five more things about me

I’m a happy blush addict.

I’m in love with the night sky.

As a child I first wanted to become a tightrope walker and later a knight. Both things are still somewhat appealing to me.

I love mushrooms and bonfires and my favourite season is Autumn.

I believe in endless wonder.
