Talent dust
"We nurture the dust.  Maintain it.  Measure it.  Package it.  And distribute it.  A beautiful tradition, day in, day out, passed from one generation to the next, to the next, to the next..." -Fairy Gary on the role of a dust-talent fairy.[1]

Dust-talent fairies process and ration out dust to the other fairies.  This is an extremely important job - without pixie dust, fairies couldn't fly properly or use their magical talents.  The work primarily in the dust mill (in the books) or the Pixie Dust Distribution Depot (in the movies). They set aside a portion of dust for Peter Pan and the Lost Boys.[2] Due to the delicate nature of their work, Dust Fairies cannot sneeze on the job.[3] Sneezing near fairy dust is a certainty that one is not a dust fairy.[4]

Appearance & Wardrobe

Dust-talent fairies are often extra-sparkly due to working with dust.[5]  In the films, they wear clothes in warm colors such as gold, orange, golden-brown, and amber.  Both skirts and trousers are seen on dust-talent fairies.
