I love everyone's outfits! ❤️
I was a little lost trying to figure out what I should dress as but then I thought mermaid because I'm half Italian and 1/8 Greek and legends say mermaids populate the Mediterranean Sea. When I was little I dreamt of being one ❤️
Kandi Bardot
I found this information online: Originally, Greeks considered Mermaids half woman and half bird, but, considering that all mythical stories are constantly changing along tradition, we find that Mermaids become half fish and half woman after a dispute with the Muses, their aunts from the genealogic point of view. In ancient texts, Mermaids appear not alone but in a group of two or three and not only in the water but sitting on reefs waiting for the arrival of ships.

If we look back at history, we see that the first Mermaids appeared for the first time painted on caves in the late Palaeolithic (Stone Age), about 30,000 years ago, when human beings had strong control of the land and began to sail the sea. 

The Greek name “Seirén” is related in meaning to a rope, and Mermaids would be something like “the ones that tie or grab”, mainly sailors tempting and enchanting them with the sweetness of their songs. Those songs were irresistible and they fascinated anyone as their melodies were full of promises, hence the literary expression “Siren song”. Throughout history, we can see that such attraction was not only united to a tuneful singing but also to their femininity. This being is always characterized by living between two worlds, sea, and earth, or between life and death because we also find Mermaids as funeral emblems accompanying their singing those who began their journey to the afterlife.

The literary text that introduced Mermaids in history was the “Odyssey” written by Homer, who explains how the hero Ulysses had himself tied to the mast of his boat to listen to the mermaids' songs without any danger, although he is not the only one who managed to be uninjured, the Argo ship crew commanded by Jason was also unharmed. They managed to escape from the bewitching melodies thanks to a great musician called Orpheus, son of Apollo, who traveled with them and who with a magical song managed to avoid Mermaids.

My family is mostly German and there are certainly a lot of German fairy tales, but I decided to do one I wasn't familiar with until recently- Frau Holle :)

A pre-Christian and even pre-Norse/Germanic pantheon figure, she survived the Christianization of Europe and remained in popular belief and fairy tales. She's associated with spinning, domestic crafts, witchcraft, fertility, the earth, winter, protection, and leading the Wild Hunt, with connections to many other Goddesses, religious figures, and legendary creatures (Perchta, Diana, The Virgin Mary, Hecate, Hulder, Freya, etc). Both old and young, punisher of the bad and rewarder of the good, she is a very old figure that has so many attestations and interpretations. In folklore, shaking out her pillow and duvet produce snowflakes that fall over earth, which I think is very fun, so I have her holding a pillow in my depiction, as a supreme Winter Goddess she's often portrayed as :)

It's a hot summer day and you walk on the path that runs through vast fields. The sun is so bright it blinds you and causes little pearls of sweat to appear on your scorched skin. There's no tree around you, no place to hide in shadow... so you continue your travel. Suddenly, you feel a gust of wind strong enough to stir up clouds of dust, so you squint your eyes in order to protect them. When the air finally calms down and the dust falls back on the ground, you open you eyes and see a beautiful woman with wildflowers in her hair and a scythe in her hands. She greets you with a bright smile and calls you to come closer. You've never seen her before, but she acts like she knows you, so driven by curiosity, you decide to come up to her. When you look up at her face again, you see how her pleasant expression abruptly turn into contorted grimace. She opens her lips and says something, but you're not even able to understand the meaning of her words, because her voice, so cold and unsettling, makes your skin crawl violently. You're so deeply disturbed by this woman that you decide to turn around and run away as fast as you can. After a short while, you look over your shoulder and notice that you left her far behind, so you slow down and take a deep breath of relief. But suddenly, you feel a hot flush and increasing pain inside your skull. You feel so awfully dizzy and nauseous that you can't stand straight, so you let you weak body fall to the ground. You notice a movement in a corner of your eye, so you use the last bit of strength to turn your head in that direction. The last thing you see is the disturbing lady standing above you, taking a swing with her scythe.


Midday Lady, known also as Południca in Polish, Полудниця in Ukrainian, Полудница in Serbian, Bulgarian and Russian, Polednice in Czech and Poludnica in Slovak, is a mythical creature from Slavic beliefs. She is an evil spirit that appears in the middle of hot summer days and hunts down folk who dared to stay in the field at noon. She is usually depicted as a young beautiful woman dressed in white, carrying a scythe, sickle or shears. She stops people in the field and engage them in conversation, sometimes asks difficult questions. If her speaker fails to answer a question or changes the subject, she will cut their head off or strike them with heatstroke.
