Sometimes, I like to dress up like a witch. Not a real witch. A fake witch. You see, dressing up like Elphaba is the best way we REAL witches know to throw off any suspicions of our craftiness.
Unfortunately, it is not like the ending of the movie Practical Magic where you can come out and everyone supports you. There are truly vicious, mean, evil witch hunters out there and we ALL know what witch hunters do to witches. The most disappointing, but eye opening, vacation memory for me was visiting Salem and The Salem Witch Museum. Salem is like witch Disneyland. Everything is for show and there are an awful lot of fake witches there. And The Salem Witch Museum reminds us, in a very cheesy way, why we witches must pretend it is all pretend and cheese it up. Nobody wants to to end up like Joan of Arc.
So here is my favorite fake "witch" memory. Me and my sister-in-law wearing our disguises for Halloween at our first annual Halloween Hullabaloo, which ended up being the only Halloween Hullabaloo.
And last night I finished a series of witch in disguise ATC cards. These will be incorporated into soldered pendants and sold in my Etsy shop.
Before I forget, follow my blog and comment that you are so I can enter you in a Practical Magic drawing. The winner will receive one of my soldered pendants with their choice of my ATC witches! Tell me in your post which witch is your favorite - the witch at the cauldron, the owl, or the Jack-o-Lantern witch.
Have fun visiting other parties and thanks for stopping by!
