*All from my digital and physical grimoires; all spells were written by me.

  • Me, an asexual: my sexuality makes me invisible. Watch this.
  • Friend: you know that's just metaphorical, right? You aren't actually-
  • Me: *walks up to a store employee* I'm asexual.
  • Store employee: haha no you're not. No one is asexual, that's not a thing. You can't live without sex, honey. You're just a late bloomer haha or maybe you're saving yourself for someone special. Or you're just so sad and pathetic that you can't find a boyfriend. Or are you gay? You're totally gay, just admit it. You ...
  • Me: *steals a cake, three oranges, and a dozen candy bars under their nose while they continue to talk nonsense*
  • Friend: holy heck

Invisibility is generally thought of as magical, unobtainable, something out of Harry Potter or a superhero comic. But optics, the physics of light, is very much science. How can you manipulate light so that you are completely invisible?

We see an object when light hits or goes through it and comes back to our eyes. Therefore, then, there are two things we can see: reflection, the bouncing of light, and refraction, the bending of light. Because of this, we can see glass and water even though they are transparent. 

Latias, then, bends the light around its body to appear invisible. When light refracts, the angle that it bends is proportional to the index of refraction (n) of the material. Snell’s Law says:

Don’t get too discouraged by the math: it just means that the larger the index of refraction is, the more light will be bent when it enters the medium. For example, air has an index of refraction close to 1, and diamond is 2.4.

This also means that if two mediums have the same index of refraction, then light won’t bend at all when it passes through it. For example, this glass rod has the same index of refraction as the oil, which makes it disappear:

That’s invisibility, but not the kind we’re looking for. If Latias’ feather had the same index of refraction as the air that it flies through, then yes, its feathers would be invisible. But you could see straight through to her skin, organs, lungs, heart, eyes, etc. We aren’t looking for a way to make light go through Latias, we want the light to go completely around her.

Until recently, this was largely thought impossible. To bend light completely around a visible object like an invisibility cloak, you would need a negative index of refraction. By definition a substance’s index of refraction is calculated with a square root, and we can’t take a square root of a negative number. There was no substance on Earth that met these requirements.

Until, in 1964, Victor Vesalago mathematically proved that a negative index was not impossible. You simply need to take a “left hand rule” approach instead of the standard “right hand rule” for electromagnetics. And much more recently, in 2000, we’ve successfully engineered materials with negative indices of refraction. 

The catch is, light is made up of a spectrum of different wavelengths. The “invisibility” material that we have only cloaks the object from microwaves, not visible light. Research is still being done, as you can imagine, true invisibility would be a revolutionizing breakthrough.

Latias’ feathers have a negative index of refraction, bending visible light completely around her body and making her invisible.

Because she’s not invisible all the time, Latias must have several layers of feathers; the red and white for normal, and the invisibility ones for stealth.

Invisibility Glamour

Whether you’re wanting to escape unnecessary conversations or you have become quite the commodity lately, this glamour will take the edge of all the attention you’re receiving and allow you to fade a little bit into the background for a while. Note: This glamour is not for literal visibility, but to receive decreased attention from others and be noticed less.

You will need:

  • A small bowl of water
  • A clear quartz crystal or clear piece of glass. (The clearest, least fractured crystal or piece of glass is ideal. The spell is most effective with an ultra clear crystal ball).

Place your bowl of water containing your crystal or glass in a dark and undisturbed space (like a closet or cabinet) for a full day. After 24 hours, remove your bowl and soak your hands in water. Periodically remove your hands, and massage the water onto your face and body, envisioning a dim light emanating from your skin. 

Your skin now holds a dim light, and your energy is quieted. This glamour will last for about a day. Repeat the spell or leave the water in darkness for a longer period time as necessary. 

“I am hidden from those who would seek to harm me”

This sigil can be used to help protect yourself from either mundane or magical methods of attack, directed at you by humans or spirits. This acts as a boost to other protection methods such as shielding / warding / etc., and is not meant to be used by itself.

“See What You Want to See” spell

This is kind of a messy poppet /glamour spell I threw together out of miscellaneous nonsense I had lying around to make myself more resilient around my parents and make them see what they want to see so they stop nagging me about every little thing for the next 3 months while I’m home from college

What you’ll need:

-a poppet

-a sigil to represent what you want to be seen as—or you could use my sigil (“they will see what they want to see”)

-any crystal you associate with yourself—I used blue lace agate

-a sharpie/marker in a colour you associate with your intent—I used blue

-a candle in a colour you associate with blending/protection (don’t worry if you don’t have one though, it can be done without!)

[OPTIONAL: any herbs, ribbon, etc you would like to use; a sigil to represent yourself]

What to do:

1) Draw the intent sigil on the backside of the poppet [if you have a self sigil, draw this on the front side of the poppet]

2) Put your crystal on/in the head of your poppet

3) Light the candle, hold the poppet in your hands, and focus on the poppet, saying

“They will see what they want to see, but to myself I am truly me” OR “They will see what they want to see, but I will always be me”

       Say it as many times as feels right

4) Drip wax from your candle onto the two sigils of the poppet and continue to focus your intent until the wax dries (if you don’t have a candle, kiss the sigils while focusing your intent into them). [if you chose herbs, put the herbs into the drying wax]

5) Blow out the candle and kiss the poppet once more, and remove the crystal [if you decided to use ribbon, wrap the head/eyes of the poppet with ribbon to “blindfold” it—symbolizing not seeing reality]

6) Then, hide the doll where it will be safe and you will find it again, and try not to disturb it until you need to break the spell.

To break the spell:

Break the poppet into pieces (2 or more) and say “I am me, and they see me”, then properly dispose of the poppet.

[Here’s some progress images if they help! Sorry if this is a really messy format :x]

[intent sigil]

[completed poppet]

Good luck! ❤️

I can’t stop thinking about this…

Accroding to the wiki, “A Toa of Light’s Elemental power gave them near-perfect command over light beams. As such, at a basic level, they could create, control, and absorb light. Examples of this included creating illusions and laser beams, illuminating dark areas, and absorbing the light in an area to create darkness. Additionally, Toa of Light could change the color of their armor.”

Near perfect command over light beams. So like, they could turn themselves invisible, right? I’m reading this correctly right? 1) they change the color of their armor to dampen all light, and 2) they bend light around their body, so whoever’s looking at them would only see what’s behind them. You’d still see a shimmer where the light is being bent around their skin, but otherwise they’d be invisible, right?

I just thought about the Huna potentially being an elemental mask, and that arose the question of “does cancelling the effect of an element make a mask elemental?” And seeing as the Kaukau and masks like it aren’t I guess it’s not, but that got me on this train of thought, so… tell me what y'all think I guess

Superpowers... but your clothes make it awkward
  • Invisibility: but your clothes don't turn invisible with you
  • Shapeshifting: but your clothes don't change with you
  • Sizeshifting: but your clothes stay the same size
  • Pyrokinesis: but your clothes aren't immune to your own flames
  • Liquification: but your clothes don't turn liquid with you
  • Super-speed: but the friction causes your clothes to wear out really fast
  • Teleportation: but your clothes can't come with you
  • Intangibility: but your clothes stay tangible (and drop right off your intangible body)
  • Time travel: but your clothes need to stay in the present
  • Stopping time: but your clothes are stopped too (you have to be naked before you even stop time)
  • Forcefield: but your clothes are also repelled (they just burst right off you)
Dark Matter Invisibility Spell ✨

Because dark matter does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, it’s invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. This spell is designed to shield you from unwanted energy.

Items required:

  • Visualization
  • A dimly lit, quiet environment
  • Star water made with blue glitter
  • Ambient music (optional, but it always helps me personally)

Instructions:

  • In a dim, quiet room, turn on some ambient music if you wish and get comfortable
  • Take some time to meditate and fall into a calm, relaxed state of mind
  • Visualize a blanket of dark matter (generally depicted as being blue in color even though it’s technically invisible) covering every fiber of your being, making you invisible to any unwanted, harmful, or negative energy (be specific with the energies you want to avoid)
  • Anoint yourself with star water to seal the spell (your forehead or the inside of your wrists would be a good place to do this)

To do this on the go:

  • Perform the spell as originally intended, but in addition, enchant a bottle of star water with the energy emitted from dark matter and anoint yourself before going out or leaving your comfort zone

Just because you have been left invisible doesn’t mean you are unimportant.

Atoms are largely invisible (except for those who know how to see them), but they literally make the world possible.

Being unseen by many has nothing to do with how needed you are.

We need you, nonbinary friends.

“Homophobics cannot see / find me”

In light of the recent legalization of gay marriage in the United States, I have decided to break my no sigils rule to make this quick one for all of you LGBT+ witches! It is meant to be used in a glamour spell that will help hide you / make you “invisible” to people who don’t want to see you. You can also use it in make up applications, like writing it with foundation before blending it in. It’s best used with another glamour spell, to amplify it, but I’m sure just writing it on your skin while visualizing people glancing over you and not noticing you will do as well. Stay proud and stay safe!

Invisibility cloak of LEDs

Credit: University of Michigan

A development that could boost the efficiency of LED lighting by 50%, and even pave the way for invisibility cloaking devices, has been made by a team of University of Michigan researchers. The new technique peppers metallic nanoparticles into semiconductors. 

This is first technique that can inexpensively grow metal nanoparticles both on and below the surface of semiconductors. The metal nanoparticles can increase the efficiency of LEDs by acting as tiny antennas that alter and redirect the electricity running through the semiconductor, turning more of it into light. They can also help reflect light out of the device, preventing it from being trapped inside and wasted.

The technique allows precise control over the nanoparticle distribution, meaning that it could one day be useful for cloaks that render objects partially invisible through a phenomenon known as “reverse refraction.”

WOW - more attention on this tumblr in 4 days than I’ve had with…probably any tumblr I’ve ever had over the last 7 years! Thanks, y’all!

Annnnd, one of my new followers asked me to turn someone invisible, and sent the above to me! (Thanks!)

It was a hell of a challenge and use of the clone stamp was limited. There were ZERO ‘content-aware’ tool strokes.

It’s not 100%. Not even close. It’s a painting after what I had to do to it. STILL, I think it turned out pretty lovely. More pixel-painting than I’ve ever done before with a manip–and I actually recorded the whole two-hour process.

Thanks for the challenge! Gimme more. :D

I have some more stuff of my own ready for tomorrow. See y’all around…
