All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I love redneck people.. :)
I'm a Native No Dak,got the belt with my name on it...The nite I met David,we had on the same cowboy boots! LOL
I'm pretty sure I look like a stereotypical goth (with a touch of faerie, perhaps). The only people who have told me they think I look like a witch are young children, much to their parents' chagrin :P I never thought of witches as looking like one thing or another, as the ones I know personally have vastly different senses of style.
The ones I know do too,have their own style,look and are as different as can be....The World,I do believe,perceives a certain "witch look"...I had a little boy in Walmart a few days ago,tell me I'm not a very scarey witch, because I was too pretty,LOL. His Dad apologized and I said What a nice compliment..... I have 9 very visible Celtic Tattoos,and they are great conversation starters. I love talking about my path of Scottish Witchery and my belifs in the Fey....to anyone that asks.What is a "touch" of Faerie?
I think the "touch of Faerie" is partly an overall impression and partly decorative elements (I do like wearing crystals, wearing leaves in my hair, and I'm not above putting on a pair of elf ear tips on occasion...in fact I've considered getting the actual ear tip surgery done. No joke.) I'm told by others that there's something about my eyes (some people describe it as a spark, or a "knowing" look) and the way I carry myself that gives an impression of being half in this world, half somewhere else...of course that might just be a nice way of telling me they think I'm not in my right mind :P
I also tend to draw the attention of various nature spirits and other unseen beings wherever I go, so when people say I have a rather strong, active energy about me, this might be partly what they're perceiving.
NICE! Thanks for explaining. I have a friend that works with the Elven Folk also and has thought about the "ear surgury",too. I have two resident Scottish Brownies around me and i work with the Irish Tuatha Dea and they with me. I believe I was Fey in another realm and life,asI mentioned earlier,my friend Alicen Geddes-Ward,that writes on the Fey,believes we do take on the characteristics.....so do I. I understand. We have an ongoing discussion on FEISTY WITCHES on the Fey,please feel free to add your experiences to it,too.You know,I get that too,half here and half not,one foot in faerie realm.....LOL
What does a Witch look like to you? You haven't really clarified what a Witch looks like to see yourself turning into one. How can others say if they look like this image, if you haven't really explained it?
When using the Stereotypes, there are many one could point to for references as it relates to the image of the Witch.
