I have this awesome black ring I got at a thrift shop, and I have been desperately wanting to do something witchy with it for a while now. I want to wear it all the time, and I think protection is the best thing to wear it for! Since it’s kind of huge, and gives off a sense of ‘don’t mess with me’ I think this enchantment is best! Have fun with it if you’re going to do it yourself!
What you’ll need:
One Ring (a particularly foreboding-looking one if you can find it)
Salt (black salt would be awesome)
One Black Candle (or any colour you associate with sheer power)
Light your candle and place your ring in the bowl. As you sprinkle salt onto the ring, say:
“Ring of power, Ring of might, Protect me now, Day and night.
Plague ill wishers, Bring them dread, Ward them off, As I’ve said.
Take your energy From this flame, know who I am By this name:
Add your energy into the ring. Try to channel it from the flame if you can, and then put it on! Throw away the salt, and you are finished.
I’m a little bit more comfortable. I love wearing jeans, and I don’t wear stockings. I like to be comfortable but I also like to look put together all the time. I don’t wear dresses all the time–it’s nice to save those moments for certain occasions and to make it feel extra special. In the ‘30s, every day was an event. And, as much as I love that idea, I think nowadays it’s nice to have the differentiation of when you dress up and when you don’t. I think it makes it a little bit more special.
I used to worry about having my arms exposed. I would wear jackets and undershirts all the time. One day in middle school, my dad asked me “Why are you covering your arms? It’s okay to have them out.” Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of reassurance from the ones you love to get you through tough times. XD
Drawing and painting her way through an imaginative landscape of intricate and visual entanglements is Austin native, Sophie Roach. Her artwork has endlessly covered surfaces from– guitars, beer cans, Vans, to entire rooms. And if that isn’t already insanely rad, her organic approach and laid back attitude make her not only incredibly humble, but also a super awesome collaborator. While finishing up one mural and starting up new projects, we had the chance to ask Sophie a few questions about her art, her career, and her approach – from finding her voice, attacking a mural, to digging the quietude one might find as a mail person hah!
I grabbed this from the men’s section. Why didn’t the women’s section have marvel t shirts??? 😤😤
Had to argue with my mum about “how its boxy” “doesn’t suit feminine structure” and I’m like “can’t hear ya dont care”
“It’s my most sacred and valuable material possession. I call it ‘the super jacket.’ It started in high school, when I got a jacket, which I actually hated, and I slightly fought with my mom. As time went by, it started to rip, but I wore it every day. I would stitch on different pieces of clothing and it just kept growing. Eventually, the jacket became a physical representation of my soul.
I’m not necessarily Hindu, but the soul in Hindu spirituality sheds different shells as it goes on its journey. In the same way, the jacket changes as I pass through the different phases of my life. That’s why I think clothing should be a symbolic representation of what’s important to the wearer.
I wear my super jacket all the time. I’ve worn it during official presentations, I wear it in my office, and I will wear it at my dissertation defense.”
One of the special patches is this one. It’s made from my mother’s wedding sari. The patch itself is an embryonic blue-color and you can see two spindles pulling apart two components—death and life. Life is the green-colored wavelike turbulence, and death the compartmentalized squares because death often reorganizes what was in life. Here, they are pulled apart but as the individual grows, they come together again. When you die, they reunite.“
So, I love cardigans in real life, and naturally what I love my simmies love - so when I found this cardigan with the separated shawl that @witheredlilies did I knew I needed to recolor it. I had it sitting around for a while and well, I added some patterns and decided to share it for simblreen.. you need the mesh which you can get here !
also.. plaid tights are *heart eyes* and I don’t know about you guys but I wear cute patterned socks all the time! I didn’t take pictures of my last gift, but it’s the base game capri leggings in ombres and in patterns *plaid, houndstooth and hearts*
Two new pins that I got for my Trek jacket came in the mail today! I found them on amazon!
• I got the cat pins from Etsy
• The space explorer and Saturn patches are from Newbury Comics
• I made the ds9 patch that’s on the center of the back
• The rest of the pins and patches I got from various conventions throughout the years so I’m afraid I don’t remember the booths I bought them from!!
