Taken in 1917, the Cottingley fairy photos showed frolicking Fairies. The creators sounded so convincing that, despite all the experts declaring the pictures as "fake", many people believed them. When the girls were around ninety, they admitted that the fairies weren't real after all: they were actually just painted cardboard. (PROSE: Iceberg)
Gwen Cooper did a school project on the photos as a child. No less than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle believed they were real, as well as Harry Houdini. One of the photos showed Jasmine Pierce, a formerly human Chosen One from 2007, now changed into a Fairy herself. (TV: Small Worlds)
Behind the scenes Edit
In reality, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did believe in the authenticity of the photos, having accepted the existence of the supernatural by that time in his life.
