WICCAN WITCH LOVES VAMPIRES
by Rhiannon. [July 8, 2007]
I have been the black sheep of the family -- a title I still hold today,
with much honor.
Born to two wonderful parents,
and a quite normal looking brother and sister (I being the youngest of
three), I took to wearing black at an early age, long before Goth became
I had a "unique" look, separate
from my siblings. Long dark brown, almost black, hair. Porcelain
white skin. Abnormally big canine teeth.
Is it any wonder that I was
entranced by the myth of the vampire at the tender age of six?
day, I still hold those visible characteristics (minus the dark brown hair
-- I like to change it with the seasons). My friends joke that I
don't tan, but reflect light, which usually happens if someone is taking
became older my veins started coming to the surface. I now have the
white skin, still the "fangs," and the hint of blue and purple veins showing
beneath my skin. I have been told that I am one of the few people
who can pull off that look. I get stared at, even when dressed in
"normal" attire, because of this.
early age I became interested in my ancestors' faith -- so I started following
the path of my ancestors, and now am an ordained White Witch.
in vampires never faltered. Between my fascination with Egyptology,
and Greek and Roman mythology and archeology, that interest never faltered.
It shows up in my artworks, as well as clothing (that I usually do for
musicians). I've even created a tarot deck, all writings and artwork
myself, based partially on the Vampire Myth. I am very proud of this
achievement, and may self publish if I don't find a suitable publisher.
even made a name for myself by creating one-of-a-kind dolls, dressed in
historical outfits (designed in studio by moi), that are vampires.
My vampire dolls were featured on a TV show in Ontario, and have gained
clients as far away as Japan. Vampire fans, like myself. Collectors
range from age 18 to 65.
my friends call me the "Countess." My home reflects this, in Victorian
antiques and décor. My favorite being the antique dolls from
the Victorian period. I am surround by beautiful Armand Marseilles
and china-head dolls dating as far back as 1860. Some people proclaim
the china-head from that date is haunted. I even own a tarot deck
from 1895. That only comes out on very special occasions.
my family used to be worried about my darker side, but now embrace it.
They see that it's the artistic nature of my soul. They know I am
a good person, but I can go to the darker recesses of my mind when I need
too. Mainly for my creations.
As I always
say, normal is boring!
