Glimmer, Shyne and Shimmer

Glimmer, Shyne and Shimmer

Flairies are magical creatures present in Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale. The name is a portmanteau of "flair" and "fairy" although flairies are not fairies, as they don't have wings. They travel to wherever they are summoned and use their magic to add shimmer, glimmer and shine to designs that inspire them. Although they help designers all across the globe, Millicent's Fashion House is where they came to life. It's their home and the source of their powers.

Story[]

When Barbie and Alice are exploring the attic of Millicet's Fashion House, Alice tells barbie about the history of the building and a story about a magic ancient wardrobe (The Glitterizer). Barbie helps Alice summon the magic by placing a garment in the wardrobe and reciting a chant inscribed on a secret wall hidden inside a vault in the attic. The wardrobe lights up and shakes and three flairies, Glimmer, Shyne and Shimmer burst out and the garment inside is now bedazzled and sparkling due to the flairies magic. When Barbie tells them that the fashion house is going to be gutted and turned into a hotdog place, which would cause them to lose their powers, they try to talk Millicent out of it.

Millicent tells them that there's no hope and she'd need to sell a whole new fashion line by Friday to afford to get out of the contract, so Barbie, Alice and the flairies make a plan. Alice begins to design garments for the fashion show and the flairies glitterize them. As they prepare for the fashion show, rival fashion house Jacqueline's wants to know how they are making there garments so sparkly. When Jacqueline discovers it's the flairies, she kidnaps them in the middle of the night and traps them in a cage and forces them to use their magic on her designs. The flairies didn't oblige at first and warn Jacqueline that the magic wouldn't work properly, as they were uninspired by the designs.

Barbie and Alice search for the flairies when they wake up and start to lose hope when they realise they're missing. Millicent decides she'll help them with the fashion show, although she still doesn't believe they can save the fashion house. during the night, the flairies use their magic to draw attention to themselves by creating firework-like balls of glitter. The pets, Sequin, Jilliana and Jacques are awoken by the noise and follow the sparkles to Jacqueline's to investigate. When they find the flairies trapped in a cage Jilliana unlocks them with her claw. When Barbie and Alice wake up they are in shock that the flairies are back. The flairies show them that they glitterized all the dresses and decorated the building for the fashion show.

Barbie, Alice, millicent and the flaries wait for people to come but the only person there is the hotdogeteria guy. Barbie and Alice start to lose faith but millicent assures them that people will come and to be patient, which eventually does happen because Jacqueline's fashion show fails due to the flairies magic not working properly and the clothes start producing a bad smell. MIllicent's fashion show ends up being a huge success and they earn enough money to save the fashion house and the flairies. Jacqueline apologises to the flairies for kidnapping them.

She wears a little flowy pink and silver dress. Shyne has pinkish skin. She also has very pink hair with silver streaks, although she keeps her hair in a high ponytail. Her dress sparkly pink, studded with silver jewels and has a ruffled skirt. Glimmer's skin is purple along with her hair, which is kept in a bow shaped updo. her hair is also streaked with silver and she wears a silver hairband. She wears a purple dress with a silver belt. They all wear silver jewellery and silver high heels.

Powers and Abilities[]

Flairies have magical powers that allow them to enhance clothing by bedazzling it with sparkles or even completely transform a garment or object, as seen at the end of the movie when Glimmer turns Barbie's quite simple pink dress into an extravagant, glamorous ball gown, when they turned Ken's jeans and jacket into a fashionable suit and when Glimmer turned two limos into dazzling carriages.
