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.

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.

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.

Well can you "go steady" with your romantic interest cuz i can't???
Have you had a conversation with your RI with nothing but romantic socials until you were both "extremely irresistable"?  That's the only time you can ask to go steady.

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?

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.

I have found that making my fairies interact with the mood light gives them a mood buff based on the color of the light when they interacted. So far I have seen blue making them sort of grumpy or depressed and pink making them feel flirty or amorous.

My fairy has a 'want' "become a vampire" , will a fairy lose fairy traits if it is bitten by a vamp? Is it even possible?

A Person says...
You can't make a Supernatural (Fairy/Witch/Ghost/Werewolf, and especially Toadified/Zomified sims) a vampire. In the case of Toads and Zombies, wait for the time they turn back into a normal sim or use the (Potent) Cure Elixer on them (throw).

A fairy doesn't have a hidden trate called the green thumb they just learn gardening faster than most sims.( Fairy's can't revive a dead plant)
11th April 2014 5:54pm
A Person says...
Fairies actually do, they just need to learn Bloom. They can revive dead plants with it.

I have a fairy and a human sim and no matter how much I flirt, I can't get the "Propose going steady" option to show up but the human has an option to say "Ask to Forsake the Fae" I'm confused why can't they go out?

So, I didn't see this on here, and it may very well be a glitch on my computer, I don't know; my fairy uses aura of creativity for her human husband, but when I leave it active and she cooks dinner, she gains cooking at twice the speed, regardless of what stove she's using. Anyone else have that? I'm not complaining, but it was pretty cool.
1st May 2013 4:08pm
pandasimmer says...
Well the aura of creativity increases fine arts/creative skill raising including: cooking, painting, sculpting.

Aura of body and mind can also do this.

Also I found that if a faerie constantly has A.O.C on, occasionally the stove (if it is cheap) will not set fire.

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.

Secret says...
Hey! This has been very useful guide-but just 1 thing.
Whenever I cast the Hot-Head trick on ANYONE a fire starts. And a Fairy has to put it out. No human can do it for me. I only have one fairy. Most of the time the fire gets out of control and I have to buy everything again! Please tell me why this is happening!!!

Maya says...
I want my werewolf and fairy to give birth to a fairy baby, but they keep having werewolf babies. Is there a way to ensure them having a baby fairy during pregnancy? (Like how you can eat watermelons and apples to ensure their gender)
There's no way to ensure it unless he/she becomes a non werewolf for the pregnancy and then gets rebitten or uses an elixir.
14th July 2013 11:23am
Nut says...
I think fairies are much easier to take care, why? Cuz they don't need a kitchen hence there is no need to fear about fires! Also they don't need a bead; just a fairy house is enough to satisfy hunger and energy!
Playing with fairies so far, there is no issues and I am beginning to love them too, in addition to witches.
31st March 2013 6:46am
GlitterGirl says...
I created a fairy sim but when I started playing she had no wings or powers. What gives. Is it a glitch and is there a solution
It could be a glitch.  I heard there was an issue with some CC or mods that did it. Make sure to remove all of that and try it again. Perhaps even try a factory reset folder.
25th July 2013 6:49pm
Gerry says...
Don't forget, the train set can help fill up the faeries magic bar thingy as well.

Amy says...
I had wish to "forsake the fae". how do you even do that? if you take the fairy potion does it make a fairy human? and what about the other supernaturals trying to reverse
Forsaking the fae is an option that comes up when your partner is the fairy.  You can ask them to forsake their supernaturalness. The other person will then get an opportunity if they are controlled by you to go to one of the buildings around town.
