The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - Inner Beauty makes a Sim very ugly on the outside.

The Sims 3 Supernatural introduces the Fairy, a type of Sim able to use magic to pull tricks, benefit themselves and others with auras, and have a natural connection to nature. All Fairies have the Green Thumb trait, so you should not select this on any Sim you intend to make a Fairy. This guide covers most things about this new Supernatural life state, and includes a list of all unlocks at each Fairy skill level.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - Fairies can Fly
The 'I Can Fly' Interaction Fairies start with.

Becoming a Fairy
To become a Fairy, make your Sim using the Supernatural type selector in Create-a-Sim or acquire a Bottled Blessing of the Fae for around $2000 in the Alchemy store. You can also make one yourself using Supernatural's Alchemy Skill. Fairies have the same basic needs as other Sims, but live five times longer with 100 days spent in Young Adult.

When creating your Sim, be sure to look to the basics tab in CAS so that you can select Fairy Basics, which allows you to choose your Fairy's wing color and design.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - Flying
All Fairies can Fly instead of running and will move at an increased rate.

Learning New Fairy Abilities
Fairies like other Supernatural life state additions can level up to learn new abilities. They receive experience any time they do something that consumes Magic Power. While running an Aura your Fairy is constantly gaining experience in the hidden Fairy Magic skill. So, continue to act as a Fairy and use those abilities and your Sim will level up naturally. Using Bloom while running an aura is perhaps the best, most useful way to level up but you do not unlock it until level 5.

Here is a list of all Fairy abilities and the levels at which they unlock:

Fairy Magic Skill Levels
LevelUnlock 1Unlock 2
0Hot Head: Makes a Sim's head heat up, blowing steam out their ears. The target will be singed.Chattering Teeth: Blows frost that makes a Sim cold.
0I Can Fly: Do a flying maneuver in place, pictured above. This gives a big, fast boost to Fun, and using this just a few times can fill the meter.Aura of Soothing: Gives a +20 moodlet that affects all nearby Sims including the Fairy. Consumes power while active and grants XP.
1Aura of Creativity: Sims perform better in Music (all instruments), Painting and Writing while under this Aura.Flight of Felicity: Bless a Sim, allowing them to fly like a Fairy. (replaces run)
2Fairy Trap Toilet: Causes water to gush when a Sim flushes the toiletFairy Trap Shower: Puts dye in the shampoo
3Fairy Repair: Magically repair a broken object.Aura of Body and Mind: Logic, Charisma, and Athletic performance is improved.
4Fairy Trap Trashcan: Makes trash explode all around when a Sim uses the can.Tummy Twister: make a Sim belch, embarassing them
5Bloom: Advances a Plant's growth one level or makes it harvestable. Subject of the Greener Gardens Lifetime Wish. See the section toward the bottom of this guide for detailed information.
6Fairy Trap Sofa/Loveseat: Makes a Sim fall asleep when this is used.Skivvies: Another embarassing prank, strip a Sim down to underwear.
7Gold and Toads: Sims will vomit gold or toads nearly a dozen times over six hours. Each pile of gold is worth $77, and they rarely seem to vomit toads. While Sims do make some money while vomiting gold, it may be interrupting a more lucrative activity!
8Fairy Trap Mailbox Makes bees fly out of the mailbox and attack the Sim.
9Fairy Trap LLAMA: The LLAMA teleporters that come with Supernatural can be trapped with this, which causes a Sim to travel to the wrong location - boring.
10Inner Beauty: Use this on pretty but mean Sims who need to learn how to behave. The curse lasts 24h and any time they use a mean interaction it is reset. The whole time, they will be horribly ugly and other Sims may gawk and make fun. There's a Lifetime Wish for this, Magic Makeover. Its goal is to cast Inner Beauty 12 times and reach level 10 in Charisma.
The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - Fairies stacking auras
Have Fairies use different auras for maximum effect.

Magic Power
Fairies, like Witches, consume magic power to use their abilities. Everything from the I Can Fly interaction you start with, to pranks and auras will consume this resource over time. To regenerate Magic Power faster, go inside a Fairy House or use the new Train Set which a Fairy can shrink down to ride. The bar will fill over about 4 hours' time on its own. Depleting your Magic Power results in a 6 hour negative moodlet, preventing you from using Fairy Powers.

During a Full Moon, Fairies get a +40 moodlet along with the +40 Lunatic boost. They are also able to get a +20 moodlet, and share it with all around with their Soothing Aura ability. The will also get some solid, long-lasting moodlets from pulling Fairy Tricks on Sims.

Fairy Babies
Two Fairies would naturally have a Fairy Baby, but any other combination leaves a 50% chance the offspring will be a Fairy. Fairy Children can perform a few tricks, but cannot gain levels in their Fairy abilities until their Teenage years.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - casting Flight of Felicity

Fairy Dust, Flight of Felicity, and Interations
Fairies get several social interactions, such as bragging about wing color and how many pranks they've pulled. Those are great for varying conversations, with several found only under the Special category when picking Socials. The most interesting come from the other Sim's perspective. They can ask for a blessing, which gives the Flight of Felicity. This makes normal Sims float above the ground and move at the same increased speed as a Fairy. They can also request Fairy Dust through the Friendly menu, which has no value but allows you to use this blessing at will on yourself or another Sim.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - A Fairy shrinks down and flutters about a light like a moth.
A good shot of a Fairy in their smaller form.

Fairies can shrink and float into certain lights, like the mood light that comes with Supernatural. They are Drawn to the Light like a moth. This can shock them, and I'm not sure on the purpose although it's likely there more for autonomous actions and humor. There may be other objects Fairies can interact with - share your revelations at the bottom of the guide in the comments section.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - A pretty picture of a Fairy House
A Fairy House

Fairy Houses
One of the new things you can buy is the Fairy House (or Castle), which is basically a little rabbit hole (find both House and Castle under Outdoor - Outdoor Activities). Fairies can demonstrate their ability to transform into a smaller form and enter these homes. Inside, they can drink Pollen Punch, which fills a bit of hunger and can give a 2h +50 moodlet. Not as good as a meal, though it is a bonus. Also, sleeping in the Fairy House does not give a mood boost from its Well Rested moodlet. Fairies can also throw a party, and may get a positive moodlet if it's good. When you throw the party, other Fairies on the lot may come to the House. The music will give a positive moodlet, and your Fairy can raise the fun motive by dancing.

As a reader pointed out below, Fairy Houses are portable and are the best item to pack while adventuring with World Adventures. This may make Fairies not only the best at gardening, but Adventuring as well. You have fun, hunger, and energy in one small package that often fits where a tent does not.

Forum member forloveofcake pointed out that a Fairy's aura doesn't consume magic while in the Fairy House, and confirms they continue to receive Fairy Magic skill experience.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - A Child Fairy uses a Trick
A child Fairy uses a hot headed trick against her mom.

Fairy Tricks
Fairies can perform two types of trick. First are the social interaction variety, which can give some skill experience and have various effects. Second, they'll learn Traps, which can be placed on objects like chairs, the toilet, or mailbox. When a Sim springs the Trap, your Fairy Sim will get a +15 12h moodlet. Not a bad reward. So, how can we capitalize on this?

Good Traits for Fairies
Since Fairies can do tricks at any age, the Rebellious trait suits them. Fairy Tricks count as rebelling and give a +15 12h moodlet (Fight the Power). Evil is also helpful, as Tricks will trigger the Fiendishly Delighted moodlet giving another +15 for 6 hours. That's a lot for one trick, but it takes up several traits. I strongly recommend Rebellious, but you can live without Evil. Childish was also tested but did nothing for the Sim, although we suspect they may perform more tricks autonomously with this trait. Big thanks to Forum Moderator samoht04 for testing these and feeding me results!

As mentioned in the intro (but repeated here in case you missed it) Fairies get all the benefits of the Green Thumb trait aside from bonus skill experience, so it is wasted on them. Instead, take Gatherer which will further boost the quality of anything you plant and give additional produce when harvesting them.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies - A Fairy makes a plant Bloom so that it can be harvested immediately
A Fairy casts Bloom

Fairy Bloom Ability
At level 5, Fairies get the Bloom ability. This will make a mature plant instantly harvestable. What is more, it will bump a growing plant up one level. So, cast bloom a few times on a just-planted seed and you'll have the next generation of plants in your hands. Given the usually slow pace of Gardening, this is a big way to make money. Get to the Perfect level and start planting a large crop. You can then use Bloom and go for the Fairy Lifetime Wish Greener Gardens, to make 100 plants bloom and reach level 10 in Gardening. The Perfect Garden would also be an easy to attain LTW for a Fairy.

King of the Fae Lifetime Reward
You can purchase this LTR for 30,000 happiness. This will give you the ability to change your Fairy's wings and wing color at any time. Magic will also be consumed at a reduced rate when using Fairy abilities, and your Sim is able to summon any other Faeries they have met.

fairies can also cheat on a grabbingmachine (don't know if it's a correst word, i'm from France) so they have more chance of winning something,

fairys can interact with the children's train set. they can shrink their size and ride on the children's train. this causes a "having a blast" moodlet

My fairy married a vampire, but there is no interaction that allows them to move in together, and I only have control of my character,instead of controlling multiple Sims after they become a family. Is this a glitch, or a way to fix this?
30th November 2012 3:10am
Lo says...
It is a glitch probably, save and quit the game or save and go to main menu then either relaunch the application or if you've gone to main menu just reload the save game and everything should be back to normal.

How do u get a fairy to become a human because I don't want my fairy to be a fairy anymore
1st April 2013 8:38pm
Kayles says...
You can change the fairy into a human if the fairy is in a relationship. Then, if the fairy's partner is not in your control, you have to ask them to move in. Then it is an option for the partner to ask the fairy to abandon the fae and become human or whatever the partner is.

I didn't read all of the comments but with a fairy if there is no moon in the sky then they will get a moodlet that says Starving for the Moon.I can't remeber if it has an effect or not on your fairy's happiness but I thought I might point it out :3

I'm pretty sure it's -5 or -10 (probably the first). I'm not sure though... I don't play as faeries a lot for some reason. :P

I have a cute little apartment above my garage that i want my fairies but the cant fly HELLLPPPPPPPP
17th January 2013 11:41pm
Claire says...
Fairies still need things like stairs and/or ladders... Make sure the appartment is accessible. (Or turn testingcheatsenabled true on and shift click where you want the fairies to be, and then teleport them in there. Keep in kind though, you'll need to use that action *any time* you want the fairies in or out of the appartment.) good luck.

Ok so I have had the aura of shooting on and is their anyway to turn it off? I'm tired of my sim having this light on her 24/7. And also is it natural for fairys to float instead of ice skate of roller skate?
30th December 2012 5:46am
Claire says...
Click on the sim, and under the first menu that comes up or the Fairy menu, select 'turn dairy aura off'and that should do it.

Commander says...
I am stuck.... My human sim fell for a fairy sim. I had her take the fairy transforming elixer. Turned in to a fairy, but she cannot marry her born fairy sim. They have 2 children one human and one fairy. But they wont get married. Ive tried to get them to forsake the fae but it still will not work. Is there certain steps I need to take in order for them to get married? Maybe buy a cake? or the arch way? Help please
31st January 2013 7:50pm
Claire says...
You can either use the cake/arch, or if they haves good enough relationship, you can click on the one you're not controlling(when you're controlling your other sim) and it's under Romantic. If both sims have a lot of good friends, then you can just 'have a wedding' or if they don't, then Have a Private Wedding is ok. Keep in mind the relationship stages - friend,then Romantic Interest, then Boyfriend/Girlfriend, then you must have one ask the other for their hand in marriage, and then they're Fiancé(e)s. then and only then canyon have them get married. Good luck!

I wanna ask, why does my fairy have a top wearing when having a bath? Eveni have put the no mosaif mods in the game. Could anyone help?

You may have a trait that doesnt allow you to be without clothes. That or it's glitching.

is there a way for a fairy to make fairy dust? is there any other way to obtain it then by asking another fairy for it?

ALexis says...
My fairy was flying around the little mood light, like as a small fairy sprite thing and she got singed. There is no time where it will end, but there is a decrease in the mood. Does anyone know how to remove it without cheats?
30th December 2012 12:57pm
Nichole says...
I've found with any Sim be it Fairy or other that if you either click on them and tell them to change clothes or make them bathe the Singed moodlet goes away.

VampireDiaries says...
I can't change my fairy's appearance as when I clickon the wadrobe or mirror, it'll state, "Your sim has been tranformed". And it doesn't allow me to change! Help?
24th November 2012 3:13pm
Laura says...
One way to edit your sim without clicking on a mirror or wardrobe is to ctrl+shift+c and enter "testingcheatsenabled true". Then shift+click on your sim and select the option "edit sim in create-a-sim" (or something along those lines). Hope this helps!

Bloom also can increase the quality of the plant if successful. A bad bloom will decrease the plant quality.

Can you learn the alchemy skill in the sims 3 island paradise?and is the alchemy skill like the chemestry skill or something?or is it magic and potion mixing?
31st December 2013 12:48am
Keeley says...
You can as long as you have the supernatural expansion pack on there where you can then access the the alchemy set and go from there

What color surrounds a fairy sim when you check your friends list. All I know vampires are red.
Green is for fairies, Gold is for witches.  Brown is for werewolves.

Nut says...
Playing with fairies around some more, and I realize that sometimes the trap that I tried to set will backfire. This happens with the toilet and the trashcan; but after putting my fairy into aura mode the trap seems to stp backfiring. Not sure if magic skill matters. BTW my fairy has the unlucky trate, so not sure if that also plays a role in causing the backfires.
