Whether you want to be Tinkerbelle or the Fairy Godmother we all love the whimsical world of fairies but just like in real life, fairies are very elusive in The Sims 4. Many hoped that with the release of Cottage Living, we would finally get fairies added to our games but after nearly seven-years, it doesn’t seem like we will be getting fairies any time soon. Luckily, we have a strong modding community to fill the gaps. The Fairies vs Witches by SpinningPlumbobs mod pack adds these winged creatures to your game for free.
To my surprise, your Sim can look like a fairy before becoming one. I was very pleased to find the outfit and wings already available in CAS and the wings are amazing.
Just don’t try and put any shoes on your fairy or the outfit will create an ugly black stripe above the knees.
The wings also look great in-game too.

Once in the game, it’s time to begin our fairy journey. Go to buy mode and look for The Giving Fairy statue. Everything that comes with this mod pack has its own little wings icon just in case you are worried it might get lost in all your costume content. I would advise placing the statue on a community lot instead of your home lot so all Sims can have access to it.
After placing the statue, your Sim can examine it and a pop-up will let you know that the statue is missing something and suggests your Sim looks for a gemstone or flower to add. After adding the missing item, your Sim can then admire the statue and…well, this part I don’t want to give away. It’s a very beautiful surprise that you should discover for yourself. All I will say is that you need a very high relationship with the Ethereal Guardian before your Sim can ask to become a fairy so brush up on those social skills.
When your Sim completes the task and gets to make their wish, they will be transformed into a fairy. If you didn’t give your Sim wings in CAS, they will not immediately receive their wings. Don’t panic, you can click on your Sim and select the option. .
Much like becoming a witch, your fairy will have to practice magic and hit the books to advance. You’ll also notice that their plumbob has changed
Your fairy can now hover, fly around, and even do backflips.
The animation is so cute that I made my poor fairy do backflips over and over until I felt dizzy.
Your fairy will need to get the Fairy handbook from the Ethereal Guardian. The book is very similar to the spellcaster book menu.
There are new spells for your fairy to learn and again I’m not going to give too much away here, just that the doppelgänger spell led me to create as many copies of my Sims as I could for no good reason. I had so much fun watching them all run-around and shower in the rain as they all had the erratic trait. As your fairy’s experience increases, you’ll be able to click on the statue again and choose a perk and do more spells.
Your fairy will also be able to draw power from different sources that influence the success rate, strength, outcome, and overall effect of certain spells and how easy or fast it is to learn them, as well as unlock interactions that are unavailable to other sims. Some of the things you can draw power from is technology, the sun, the moon, fire, and other elements. It took me a couple of playthroughs before I realized this and my favourite at this point is the nature fairy as it makes gardening and herbalism much easier.
This mod is called Fairies vs Witches so your Sim can become a witch too but I only chose to focus on the fairies seeing as we already have witches. However, I can say that this mod actually makes me want to play with witches again.
Overall, this mod is really well thought-out and put together. From the descriptions in the pop-ups to the smooth animations this mod pack is everything I wanted. SpinningPlumbob did an amazing job with this and I would highly recommend ALL his mods.
Now I know for some of you it might be frustrating not to be given more in-depth details about the mod before playing it so here is a link to the walkthrough.
