The butterflies are still available. I don't know who makes them, but Misdirections in S.F. is one shop that carries them. You may find, however, that you really don't need the butterfles for the final snowstorm effect. You have one butterfly to fly around, and then just use some cut up paper or a regular snowstorm load for the finish. Also, play around with where you hook up the string, e.g., on the fan, in your mouth, etc. It really effects the fly-ability. A beautiful effect all around though.
