6 Decades of Witches

This idea was born inside my head few years ago and took too much time to become alive. But it's finally here. I proudly present you my little project - witches through decades!

Since Halloween is around the corner, I've decided to do something slightly different this year. Instead of costuming myself into some fictional character, I used my everyday clothes to reveal six different ladies of the time who all have one thing in common - they're witches. They're not scary though, not even evil. What made them witches is their beautiful minds, their abilities to see things others can't see, to see opportunities where others see failure, to raise broken objects from the dust and turn them into something admirable. In other words, they were different because they were brave enough to think outside the box. They maybe were just girls next door, but those girls were ahead of their time. And so they were mocked, isolated, declared witches and finally - burned alive. Literally and metaphorically.

Luckily enough, they're also immortal. So on every Halloween night they quit hiding in OUR own shadows and come to the light for world to see them. And to hear their broken and suppressed voices while screaming their ideas into the ears of those who still have enough courage to listen. They were just a common girls who wanted more from this life. Hear their stories.

1920s flapper girl who was sick of partying like Gatsby and fought for her right to vote.

1930s glamourous old Hollywood star who wanted to fly over the ocean, just like Amelia did.

1940s secretary who just wanted to join the army and help stoping the war.


1950s housewife who was sick of cooking and wanted to become a Dior's model.


1960s flower child who wanted to go to the space.

1970s bohemian lady who wanted equal pay and fougth against discrimination based on gender.

I would like to leave the rest to your imagination, but I'm hoping that I gave you the clear picture of what I was aiming for with this idea. Women these days may be called witches, or even another word that ends with -itches, but after all they went through and all fights they already won, they are ready to take over the world. Wearing nothing but their best black dresses and red lipstick, riding over the moon on their invisible brooms. And they should never be mocked again. Long live the witch!

Who are the witches of today? And which witch is your favourite?
Tell me what are your plans for this Halloween!

  1. What a fab idea for a post and so much effort must have gone into it! Love all the looks, but the 20s one is so fab. And I say that as someone who usually makes a beeline for the 50s :)

    1. Thank you so much! You're right, a lot of effort is put into it, it was getting dark outside so I had to literally run to change my clothes between shots. But it was a lot of fun too!
