Wintertime Witch ~Lines

It’s the Wintertime Witch’s linework! We’ve mentioned it before, and we will never get tired of saying it, but inking hair has a certain therapeutic quality to it that will either be maddening or super relaxing.
It’s a bit of a wager, but for us it’s always worth it as in the least, it will be good practice.

For this piece we chose to give the goddess Perchta some yellow gladiolus flowers for the generosity and righteousness meaning, and the colour stands for joy, life-heartedness and also a symbol of friendship, new beginnings and happiness as we believe despite her extreme punishments, she will rejoice if people retain hope to get on the right path.
Just as important, the colour hints to the sacred and imperial walking hand in hand with her entity distinction.

As she is an alpine entity, we couldn’t help but throw into the design a stylized edelweiss brooch and spider webs frozen with morning dew on her sleeves.

The fur on the back of the dress are reminiscent to Perchten, name given to her followers and retainers where some are beautiful and bright, others more on the monstrous side that among fangs and tusks also had horse tails. But she doesn’t discriminate, so a little of both goes into her outfit: a bright tail.

All in all, a reminder that beauty and brightness doesn’t mean certain bliss. Perchta will make people accountable, so children should be taught not to lie and deceive, or she will be busy come winter time.
