Crappy thing i did last night. It says Boolean knot :) from @wired february issue. The gloss, @maccosmetics chintz lipstick, kinda ruined it lol. Also wearing @mineralfusionnaturalbrands volumizing mascara. I like it, nice change from @lancomeofficial monsieur big. Not wearing concealer, my apologies. Andddd im wearing @michaelsstores pearl stickers lol i love these inspired by @esantoinette to pick them up bc she did a dreamy look with pearls. Gonna do more newspaper looks!
today’s figures are the owu mmiri! they’re only described a few times as general water spirits in resources on nigerian folklore, since most nigerian water spirits are actually named for the specific bodies of water they live in.
owu mmiri were referred to specifically in articles about a lineage of igbo healers alternatively referred to as either ‘the white star mermaid cult’ or the owu mmiri themselves. these healers are chosen by the water spirits—this calling usually manifests itself through illness or emotional instability. overall upheaval and misfortune always precede a priestess’ initiation, apprenticeship, and life as a healer.
wish i had done better with the texture, but maybe i’ll redo this along with the sylph look when i have more precise tools!
