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.

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.

Don't forget, the train set can help fill up the faeries magic bar thingy as well.

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.

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.

If you have fairy toddlers they are more self sufficient then other toddlers. If you place the fairy home inside there room they can feed themselves, put themselves to sleep, and also throw fairy parties, among other things. Not sure it was mentioned but i thought it made raising toddlers easier.

I've made one Sim throw an elixir on a child and turn her into a fairy and I've turned my witch child into a fairy by having her use the elixir on herself.

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).

Does the wing color mean anything??
No, it's just for decoration.

Fairies have the interaction "fairy frolic" when interacting with other fairies. Just wanted to point that out since it's not stated :)

The lifetime reward also allows the fairy to summon fairies which he/she met before

The something that happened to Skyte100 happened to me to. After using bloom almost all my plants were bad quality. I don't know if it's a glitch, or my level or I just fail!

I've noticed that my adult Sim who turned into a Fairy now has a huge life span. She's not due to grow up into an elder for another 100 days, so I think the long life span can last for Adults and not just Young Adults. That, or it may be because she was turned into a Fairy as an adult, it's giving the longer life span with the span she has already. That might be worth testing if you can so the guide can be updated.

Thank you so much! I was pretty much lost trying to get my fairy to level 10. You're awesome!

Can a fairy marry a non fairy? I have a fairy and a werewolf and they've been a romantic interest for a while. Usually the option to go steady or purpose comes up once a sim's social interactions come up to extremely irresistible. But for some reason it's not coming up. i even turned one back into a human and still nothing.. any one have this problem?
9th September 2012 9:19pm
Samantha says...
yes, you can marry a fairy and non fairy type. i have a human and fairy married. took them awhile to marry though.

I had a Fairy and Werewolf already married from the beginning but discovered the if you want to get pregnant the werewolf has to be in human form...might be the same for other interactions.

Indigo Ivy says...
I created a family of two sims, a werewolf male and a fairy female and changed their relationship to boyfriend/girlfriend. They are now married and have a werewolf son, so it is possible, you just need to be patient. Perhaps their astrological star signs clash; that tends to make a difference regarding relationships in the sims.

I can't figure out why I don't have the ''bloom'' option with my fairy. Do I have to have a certain trait or something??

Redevance says...
You need to have a level 5 fairy skill, just turn on Aura of Soothing and let it stay on until it says you've gotten bloom! :)

John says...
Ok, spent the major part of the day trying to figure out how to create a fairy, it shows in CAS but it does nothing this is also the same for the Witch, do they have to have an exixer first to become a fairy or a witch? I can have a sim a ghost, a vampire, a werewolf, and a genie but the option to have a witch or a fairy just isn't happening, or am I doing something wrong?

I found a wild fairy horse but the world accidentally got deleted. Now any world I make doesn't have it. arrgh for random generating! I would love to be able to put wings on any animal!

Cece says...
Lessica I had the same problem with my family I wanted to try to get a vampire and fariy married and the interactions took longer than normal to appear it even took awhile for the try for baby interaction. Plus I found out there is no hybrids you ethier get a fairy or in my case a would of been awsome to get a fairy vampire.

Does anyone know if Fairy Children can level their magic? It would be disappointing if they can't. Child Witches can't even use wands! T_T

Fairies also have a cute interaction with Vampires to "Demonstrate bite Strength." It is a negative interaction, but it is still cute.

When is was at the Toadstool, playing with the claw machine there was an option "trick the system", my fairy went into pixy form and got 1st a money bag worth 9000 the 2nd another 1 worth a bit less then a pink diamond

Lockesly says...
Fairies are quite possibly the single best race to play if you want to be a hardcore adventurer in World Adventures. Why? The Fairy House/Castle is portable. You get free Fun, free Hunger, and free Energy, all in the space of a 2x2 square that you can pick up and store in your inventory. They are MUCH cheaper than having to spend the simoleans on a cabin or ancient coins on a tabernacle. Not to mention that the 2x2 means they can easily sleep in areas where a tabernacle or tent cant go.
