Pretty interesting art, certainly plenty of detail to entertain the eye. More could have been done with the background but I assume it was done simple enough so as to show off the model. The dress almost looks papery and wispy which I find fascinating. The leafy wings fit well with the realism of the piece to where I don't find it hard to believe those are actual fairy wings. I think the only things that break that realism is perhaps the hair and maybe the icy horns.
Like one could tell the hair is crafted on rather than real, with the texture kind of reminding me of nail polish. But that's if one were to observe closely. I think for ice texture, the horns could've been made slightly more transparent. The mix between photo and digital art create a sense of bewilderment in a way which is both enjoyable and also likely to make one question which is which. A unique picture in that sense indeed.

Okay before I do another critique, I have to ask. Is that a real person? I know you put "model by" there but like... is that a real person or just hand drawn completely!? Because if that's just fake, dang, how you do that????????!!!!!

That really is a real person, but what I do is some painting over and a bit of outlining. Although, with a full body version in a scene like this I probably did less of that than I do with a close-up portrait. By the time I paint her hair and accent her skin for shadow and light, it makes her look more painted.

Wow. Didn't know you could do that. Just wanted to make sure. :D 
I was looking at it and I was like: "Wait that's looks too real!"
