Shrimp is all about the pigtails. There’s something “cheeky, naughty, schoolgirl” about a woman with pig tails which could be taken two ways. I didn’t want my fairy to carry any menace. I called her Shrimp to take people down the innocence track. It implies small, cheeky and fun, which is what Shrimp is.
