Sun The Badge Chronicles


The Badge Chronicles

Summer is almost over and Iridessa needs help in lighting the lanterns for the End-of-Summer Sparkler event. Normally Iridessa asks the fireflies to help with the lighting, but the poor dears have been struck with a sickness that dulls their glow! Every fairy and sparrow man on wing, whether they be animal-talent or not, can help by entering the Silver Trees to find the cure. Once found, head on over to Firefly Light-up to heal the fireflies and gather their glow to bring light to the End-of-Summer Sparkler festivities!



Silly anecdote: When I first joined Pixie Hollow in 2009, I was sure there was an event called the Firefly Festival in September/October, and during that year the fireflies needed help being lit. I even recall a news article reminding players that they only had a week or two to help light the fireflies in order to earn a prize or badge or something before the next event started. When fall of 2010 came around I wondered where the Firefly Festival went to. Anyway, this is where I got the idea for this year's badge for End-of-Summer Sparkler.



If you have time after helping Iridessa, Fira is planning the Firefly Festival and would like help in getting all the decorations ready!


It's almost autumn and that means time to paint the leaves! Bess has come to Tinker Bell to ask her if she could be the leader behind the task, being an Art-talent Bess really wants to try out some new paint colors for the leaves. (Sadly, the colors she chooses aren't very Autumn-friendly - pink leaves, anyone? - and so after you help her paint the leaves every color of the spring rainbow you'll need to repaint them the appropriate colors )

(I'll add more later on...)

Nice badge, Sapphira! I can just imagine Julie helping to light the Fireflies. I guess it would be Firefly Festival 2014 if Pixie Hollow was still here and your event was real. By the way, I have a strong feeling that out fairies do exist in the world!

I'm so glad you decided to do this, Sapphira! I would love to hear the story behind all of your badges.
Your idea for the End-of-Summer Sparkler badge is great. And interesting story of how the idea for the fireflies came to be... Will you ever make a badge for the Firefly Festival? I think that would have been a really fun Pixie Hollow special event!

By 'popular demand' I made a Firefly Festival badge! I had a difficult time finding a picture with the right image. I did make another with Fira, but I liked this one better because the colors contrasted nicely with the sunflower frame; while the Fira badge sort of melted into the yellow flower.

Do you think maybe I could do this with my badges as well? It's perfectly fine if you say no, because it was your idea. I just thought it looked fun.

By the way your badges are super cute and I love the concepts! You know, you can always check the wiki's badges and events for that firefly festival. I don't remember it though.

Hello Jenny, it's all right if you do your own Badge Chronicles; just make sure to call it something else, don't want to confuse anyone with two "Badge Chronicles" I don't want to constrict anyone's creativity.

For the Firefly Festival I'm pretty sure it was made up in my head. That happens a lot to me. I could read the summary of a book and get a totally different story compared to the real written story. It's an annoying trait of mine. I did look the event up and could find nothing. I think that what I thought was the Firefly Festival was actually either the End-of-Summer Sparkler or maybe when the Firefly Light-up game was officially released.

Thing is, when I first started playing Pixie Hollow in 2009 I made a fairy in August but couldn't actually go into the Hollow until November. I would visit the News page every so often to see if the computer would finally work and let me play the game; and that's when I thought I saw an article for the Firefly Festival. I remember the front page was decorated in pretty lanterns and firefly glows.

*eyes bulge out of sockets* Oh my, Sapphira, these are impeccably beautiful! OK THAT'S IT! YOU HAVE TO OPEN A BADGE SHOP! I would totally, TOTALLY order from you!

But maybe you should do this, firstly. I don't want to pressure you with too many ideas!

You truly are an art talent!

Wow Sapphira, your badges are amazing! I'm glad you decided to open a thread to explain the story behind them.
I especially like the Firefly Festival badge and the Changing of the Leaves one. I would have loved it if Bess came to the Hollow for Changing of the Leaves, which incidentally happens around this time of year...

I love hat changing of the leaves one, also.
I agree, it would be nice to have Bess come to the Hollow and celebrate Changing of the Leaves with us in Pixie Hollow. . .if there was a hollow still around.

The Firefly Festival one looks really good! I like the picture of the night sky, and the circle of fireflies around the badge are a great idea.
I like the Changing of the Leaves one as well! What a great idea, to have Bess visit the Hollow... I've always thought it'd be cool to include some of the "book" fairies in the game.

Oh, that's funny! I do that too sometimes. But normally with events I think actually happened in my lifetime, then everyone is like "What?"

And thank you for granting me permission. Don't worry, I'll find another title. If you ever need help with badge ideas you can come to me or the wiki as well.
(Not that you need them you're so creative!)

Oh my gosh! These are amazing! I seriously thought that these were actually badges from PH until I read that you made them! You are a extremely talented fairy! My favorite (so far) is the "Changing of the Leaves" badge. I love autumn! Amazing job!!!

Thanks everyone.

Opening a Badge Shop did cross my mind after I made badges to promote my book characters, but I wasn't sure how many would want my badges. I have a very basic computer Paint program, nothing fancy like Photoshop, so options would be limited greatly: I save images to my computer; edit them in the Paint program (like cropping); then load the images to my website where I piece them together like a layered sandwich and use the website's text boxes; then I take a screenshot of the almost final badge; and back in Paint I crop and add any do-dads to make it look more presentable. And done.

These are so creative! I can just imagine how surreal Springtime Orchard would look like with firefly lights dancing in the distance, next to the blossoming tree. And wouldn't it be flitterific if Fira visited the Hollow during the event? She would have been fun to talk to.

Well, you have the ideas part down for making badges Sapphira, and they are good quality too, considering you use basic programs. I would highly recommend that you try out GIMP or Pixlr at some point. They are free image editing programs and have much to offer. Plus, there are plenty of pixies who would be more than happy to help you get started. Once you pass the first learning curve, it becomes very exciting and rewarding to make new graphics. I hope you'll give it a go!
