Moments in Fairy Godmothers, Inc. History
The Original Uniforms
In the early days of the company, the official Fairy Godmothers, Inc. company wardrobe was far simpler than it is now. Employees would wear a basic blue gown, with a matching pale blue overcloak, the better to let them blend in with the castle staff.
There are conflicting reports as to who added the large pink bow to the outfit, though the general consensus among employees is that a particularly hateful supply clerk sewed them on in a fit of revenge. She then said that she had been ordered to do so via memo, which she promptly lost. Since management writes too many memos to ever remember any of them, management assumed the supply clerk was correct and the bows stayed.
The uniform was later changed to the current tulle skirt when clients complained that the Fairy Godmothers weren’t sparkly enough to meet the standards of the average fancy dress ball. The new uniforms also allowed employees’ wings to show, which served as a useful branding opportunity.
