The Witch: Thomasin

It seems like everyone became fans of Anya Taylor-Joy via The Queen’s Gambit, but I was already impressed with her after watching The Witch (sometimes stylized as The VVitch). This movie is definitely a slow burn, but every time I watch it, I like it more. I’d also like to recommend this analysis, the best review of the movie I have read thus far.

Usually, I try to avoid historical movie character recreations because while I know there are people who specialize in authentic time period pieces, I’m way more of a “work with what you have” type who aims for a similar vibe rather than factual accuracy. As such, I am well aware that some of the items I chose for this particular photo shoot would never be present in the 1630s New England setting of The VVitch. I’m still pretty happy with how this one turned out, even with the historical inaccuracies.

Hair: My natural hair with the ends faded out blue was put up into two braids. I also did this photo shoot directly after two others where I was wearing wigs and a wig cap, so the hair is a bit more frazzled than it would have been if I had done this character first.

Headwear: In some photos, I also wore a white scarf in place of a head bonnet.

One day while I was playing with my siblings, my baby brother Sam went missing. My mom blames me. She also blames me for her taking her missing silver cup. She blames me for everything.

Those annoying twins who won’t stop singing and hanging out with the goat Black Phillip call me a witch. To shut them up, I tell them that yes, I be the Witch of the Woods.
