Unicorn Princess Costume Characters
The Unicorn Sisters’ Birthday Party Adventure
by Margy Johnson
There are two worlds that exist in the same time and place,
but they are invisible to each other.
These are the world of the humans and the world of the unicorns.
Humans live in a world that they call Earth and Unicorns live
in a world, which they call Chimera.
Both worlds exist together, but each world is completely unaware
of the existence of the other. Neither can
see or feel or touch or hear any evidence of that other world.
Princess Rainabella was a lovely young unicorn who lived in the world of Chimera. Her family called her Rainie, because her little sister, unicorn Princess Mirage, couldn’t say Rainabella, when she was a young filly and always called her Rainie instead. Princess Rainie and Princess Mirage were the daughters of King Dauntless and Queen Dainty, the beloved rulers of Chimera.
The unicorn citizens of Chimera all lived very happily and enjoyed their work very much. Some of them specialized in making rainbows or sunbeams and others were very talented at gathering magical stardust from the sky, to spread across their land, which helped to make Chimera a strong, prosperous and happy kingdom.
All of the unicorns had magic powers. Some unicorns could fly. Some could make flowers blossom and plants grow. Others
could roll a soft cloud over the horizon to cool Chimera down on a hot day.
In the Kingdom of Chimera there also lived a wicked witch
named Thunderous. She had come to Chimera
on a rolling storm cloud after she was banished from her home, the Land of
Tornadoes. She had tried to lead a
rebellion to overthrow the Queen of Tornadoes and was sent away forever, as a
Thunderous had magic powers to create storms and other powers
that would allow her to travel between all worlds, but it did not matter to her
because she would never be permitted to return to the Land of Tornadoes, which is
the only place she wanted to be.
Thunderous was angry and resentful and she disliked the
unicorns because their happiness made her feel even more lonely and sad.
Rainie was a young lady unicorn and she was very gifted at making rainbows. She made the most beautiful rainbows in the
land. She invented the double and triple
rainbows and was always working to make bigger and more uniquely beautiful
Mirage, had the gift of being able to fly. Mirage would help Rainie with her rainbow
making, because she could fly up high and reach the parts of the rainbow that
Rainie could not reach from the ground. She
could not make the rainbows, herself, but she could help to style them. Together
they created the most beautiful rainbow designs any unicorn had ever seen.
On the day of the Radiance Festival, Rainie and Mirage were
out together at sunrise making beautiful rainbows to decorate the Festival
Grounds. Thunderous saw them looking so
happy together and having so much fun that she became very jealous.
Thunderous had been sent away from her own land and she did
not like to see the sisters happy and content in their native land. She decided that she would cast a magic spell
to send them away from their land and into the land of the humans, where they
would be lost and alone forever.
Just as Rainie and Mirage were happily crafting a
magnificent masterpiece of a rainbow for the Festival, Thunderous conjured up a
violent whirlwind which flung open the gate between the world of Chimera and
the world of Earth and pushed Rainie and Mirage through the gate.
Rainie and Mirage tried desperately to hold onto their world
but Thunderous had more strength, so they were forced through the gate by her
windstorm, and it slammed shut behind them.
Suddenly, Rainie and Mirage found themselves in a strange
land they did not recognize at all. They
looked at themselves and at each other and found that their hooves had turned
into feet and hands and their manes had turned into colorful human hair. They were standing upright and walking on their back feet with their hands stretched out in front of them. The rainbow that they had been crafting had turned into a pretty, colorful dress that Rainie wore.
They had become
the strange human creatures that inhabit the world called Earth and were no
longer unicorns, although they both still had their unicorn horns and Mirage
still had her wings.
Thunderous had followed them through the gate into the human
world and she laughed at their confusion. “How does it feel to be banished from
your home and to live in a strange land with strange creatures? I know how it feels. Now you will find out for yourselves!”.
Thunderous was happy that she had been able to push Rainie and Mirage out of Chimera and into Earth, but she realized that she could not take away their magic powers forever, without removing their horns and pulling the wings from the back of Mirage. She reached out and tried to pull them off, but they could not be removed.
Mirage tried to fly away, but her magic wings did not work in the land of earth.
Rainie and Mirage began to fight back against Thunderous and
at that moment a remnant of the rainbow they had been creating shimmered in
front of them. Through the rainbow, they
could see the land of Chimera.
They immediately stopped fighting Thunderous, grabbed each
other’s hands and tried to run back through the rainbow together but Thunderous
summoned a mighty wind and blew the rainbow away.
Rainie quickly tried to make another rainbow for them to
pass through, but her magic rainbow powers did not work in the land of earth. She felt sad and afraid, for the very first time, but then she
had an idea.
“I know how we will get back home!” Rainie said to Mirage. “All we have to do is find another rainbow
and run through it together! There has to
be another rainbow somewhere!”
“You will be in this world for a long time”, sneered Thunderous. “You don’t know what this world called Earth is like. It is not like Chimera, where there are rainbows every day. In the land of Earth rainbows only happen when there is a rainstorm! And you will have to travel a long way to get close enough to pass through a rainbow in this land.”
At that moment they all noticed that two human children were
walking towards them, hand in hand.
witches, such as Thunderous, are always terrified of human children, because
their kindness and innocence can defeat even the strongest evil spell. Thunderous quickly summoned a strong wind and
flew away in panic, as the children approached Rainie and Mirage.
Rainie and Mirage were terrified, but they did not run away
from the children. They were hopeful that if the evil witch, Thunderous, was
frightened by the children, it must mean that the children were good and would
not harm them.
The children approached and looked at Rainie and Mirage with
curiosity and fascination. Rainie and Mirage
looked back at them in the same way.
children were much smaller than Rainie and Mirage. Their hair was long and pretty but it was not bright and colorful like Rainie's and Mirages' and
they were wearing sparkly dresses and carrying brightly colored gift bags. They
did not have horns on their heads or wings on their backs.
The children whispered to each other for a few moments while looking at Rainie and Mirage with awe. Rainie and Mirage stood still and quiet and waited to see what would happen.
“Hello”, said one of the children, finally. “My name is Emily” and this is my friend, Aria”. We are going to Isabella’s birthday party. She lives next door. Are you her birthday party princesses? If you are lost, we can show you the way to her party.”
Rainie and Mirage just looked at each other and didn’t know
what to say.
“Why do you have horns on
your heads?”, the girl named Aria asked. “And why do you have wings?” Emily
“You look like unicorns!” Both girls said together.
“And you are so pretty! Aria added.
Finally, Rainie and Mirage felt that they were safe. They smiled gently at the little girls and Rainie
said, “Yes, we ARE Unicorns and we ARE Princesses! My Name is Rainie and this is my sister, Mirage. She has wings because she can fly (at least she can in
“We would love to go with you to Isabella’s birthday party”, Mirage said. “What is a birthday party?”
“I can answer that question”, Emily said, as they started to walk together. “A birthday party is a special day for one person, and other people bring her presents and have fun with their friend. It is a chance to dress up and eat cake and play.”
“That sounds lovely”, Mirage said. “But we don’t have a present to bring”.
“That’s okay” Aria said with a smile. “You are the entertainment. Your gift is that you will be there to make
the birthday party special”.
Rainie and Mirage smiled and were happy to hear that they
could make the party special just by being there.
Emily and Aria brought Rainie and Mirage to the party and
Isabella was thrilled and excited to have two REAL unicorn princesses at her birthday
party. Her mother thought that they were
sent by Emily and Aria’s parents as a birthday gift for Isabella and she was
very thankful that they were so thoughtful as to provide entertainment, as well
as bringing presents.
At the party Rainie and Mirage sang with the children, danced
with them and did fun activities with them. “A birthday party seems to be a lot
like a Festival”, Mirage said.
Both unicorns were sad for just a moment, because
they were missing the festival back home.
“After the party, we can go looking for rainbows”, Rainie
said. Mirage smiled.
“Why do you want to look for rainbows”? Isabella asked.
“We came here by accident when the evil witch, Thunderous, sent us away from our unicorn land, which is called Chimera. The only way that we can get back home is to walk through a rainbow”, Mirage answered.
“We are happy to be here with you and are very glad to have
met you”, Rainie added. “But we would like
to be able to go back home and see our parents and unicorn friends again”.
“After the party, we can all look for rainbows together!” Aria said.
“That is a wonderful idea”, Mirage said. “We would love to look for rainbows with you”.
“We may need to look for rainbows for a long time”, Rainie
said. The wicked witch told us that, in
this land, rainbows only happen during a rainstorm. But we will keep looking until we find a way to go
And I think we will spend our time, until we find the rainbow, going to birthday parties like this, because this party is so much fun!”, Mirage said.
