Champagne Cheshire

Drowning in sad drinks

Which of my nine lives is real

Which voice can i trust?

Meant to digitally add whiskers for that usual cheshire cat style but hey i guess unconventionality and disappearing whiskers is also quite cheshy 😌 ahaha excuses

I’m starting to question why i spend my time doing all these interpretations – maybe it’s because all the voices quieten when i do them

You have the right to be You

Freedom to be loved

Have pain and hate abnormal

No it’s not a phase.

Here’s a super pink and glittery look for #pinkdot the values I hope my society will have as whiskers: tolerance, freedom, acceptance and the valuing of love & life

 

The pink dot movement in Singapore is going through the usual round of hellfire by objectors. But here’s the thing – you can be conservative without imposing your believes, without being a tyrant. When you see the amount of pain, suicide and darkness has been brought to a fellow human being just because some people think they have the right to rip apart the society and deny a living person their rights to live and be who they are, there’d be no way to justify bigoted behaviour. Even if it goes against your believes, no one is forcing your full acceptance all you have to do is to not externalise your believes as a hateful spiteful person. Isn’t it also bad for your own emotional heath to be so toxic? Also is this hatred just a manifestation of a deeper insecurity or a distraction from unhappiness in your own life? Why don’t we all work on our own selves and lives than trying to dictate the lives of others.

 

❀ To anyone who has ever been bullied and hurt by hatred, demands to be ‘manly’ or ‘womanly’, homophobia, discrimination and sexism, I send you my love and support! remember the way bullies behave reflects how they are like and their values. The shame is theirs not yours.

Apocalypse Cheshire

I’m scared of water

Afraid of flying, falling

Losing heights and depth

What’s cheshire-esque? Disappearing eyebrows 😅 

I’ve been so busy trying to book flights and hesitating because i’m scared of flying. 😩 This is eating me up on the inside, this lack of contentment this desire to escape this want for the thrill. I’m just afraid im underwhelming, living a boring life and so i try and want to fill it with all these exotic places and memories and people that won’t actually matter. Just because everyone else has done so.

Garden Cheshire

Roll over into

Nothing but smiling lips that

 

Kiss flowers silver.

Here’s Cheshire rolling amongst the flowers. I wonder what arguments he would have with the twittering mean vegetation! I wanted to make the tail look wispy as if he would disappear and reappear like breathes or maybe the vapour from the hookah Absolem smokes!

Chinese Cheshire

Tell me the stories

From white men lips, each chapter

Creates foreign lands

Much of ancient Chinese cosmetics find their roots in legends. “Ornamental designs on the forehead were attributed to a princess named Shouyang, favorite of Southern Dynasty Emperor Songwudi (363AD-422AD). A blossom fell on the princess’ forehead one afternoon as she slept under the shade of a plum tree in the palace garden. Liking the effect, Shouyang wore the flower for a few days. Other court ladies followed suit, painting ornamental designs and pasting metallic patterns on their foreheads. This vogue peaked during the Tang Dynasty economic boom that succeeded a period of nationwide chaos.” – http://traditions.cultural-china.com/en/15T3998T10734.html

So here’s to cultural diversity Cheshire!

Witch Cheshire

Femme fatale pair

From cradle to grave you scare

Though you never chose.

DSC00320.JPGTo change things up a lil, added green freckles! Anyways I was thinking about how the feline and feminine have always been associated with magic or the sinister unexplainable. Perhaps it goes back to how the female figure is only assigned the roles of the nurturer and lover and a variant would be make her a frightful. An ugly evil lonesome witch. But like her gender can she choose her disposition?

I used to feel less feminine because of my resting bitch face. But do outgrow that silly thought if you think the same way too! I guess I began to come to terms with it when I realised how little my friends actually care and also how little I want to interact with some people to begin with!

Pink glitter for a more whimsical feel! : )

Sadly halloween has always clashed with exam seasons so I’ve never properly celebrated it before đŸ˜„ Anyways! Played around with Tim Burton’s more macabre rendition of the Cheshire and toned it down with Disney’s palette of soft furriness yay!

I’ve been busy since summer started but I managed to snatch some time around 2am last night to play around with this Cheshire Cat interpretation 🙂 ~happy~  Haunted by nightmares about exams the past few weeks and it takes me back to those A Level days when I’d also spend hours experimenting with the different characters from Alice in Wonderland ❀ guess some interests never change

Also strange story: a rat tried to bite me while I was watching buzzfeed videos after doing this makeup!!what the 1. vermin!! 2. irony !!
