Maskmagick and Alisha’s Emporium
As could be known since one of my very first entrys here (The Tree that is Fruit and makes Fruit), I am a user and read of deviantART. So every now and then I just look at the newes deviations and surf pictures, Items and poems from the odd person around the world.
Today I came across an Item which is known for its usage in the pagan and wiccan lifetsyle, a book of shadows:
A book of shadows is used to keep note of youre magical workings and there are a lot of rules, views and dogmas around this kind of thing. Well I do like to keep a couple of Diarys myself, including two for my Psychonautic experiments, but I tend to use a normal black moleskin book. I just like the way all my diarys sit nicely next to each other all looking the same.
But this sure is a beautiful handmade book with an equally beautiful price, outch! But thanks to this book I found other things I like and stumbled upon the ETSY Shop of the DeviantART user in Question. At Alisha’s Emporium you can buy very nicely made leather Masks. I especially like this one:
People probably do not know they do it, but I think that social networks like Facebook are making a lot of people to mess with Maskmagick. We are wearing our Avatarmask on the Net and we are more often than not happy to accept what the Mask does, what people it attracts. Do we show our Jester Face? Are we the Clown on Facebook? Or do we show our seriouse Face on the Avatar picture, are you wearing a tie? Some people even change their Name to something else … more fitting to the Mask they are wearing on the Social Plattform … and I would love to find out how many carry their self created Maskimage over to Real Life? Change the way they are because suddenly they notice that it does work?
So Masks are nice, not only as Symbols. Buy one, wear it … NO … let IT wear YOU. WHO is this Mask, what does IT want, what does it do with YOU?
