Wish Me Luck and #ShowMeFreyja

Two things!

1: I just submitted my application to Stanford University’s Anthropology Ph.D. program in the hopes of studying Anthropology of Religion with them. Wish me luck! If you do that sort of thing, prayers/spells/good vibes are greatly appreciated towards me getting into this excellent program!

2: In my first Beauty Beyond post, the Mexican-Kenyan actor/director Lupita Nyong’o was suggested. I’ve been working on my photoshop skills, particularly in stylizing photo comps to look like watercolors. So here’s my rendition of the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o as Freyja!

The beautiful and accomplished Lupita Nyong'o as Freyja!

If you are a visual artist of some kind, and especially if you are dedicated to a Deity of Beauty of some kind, join me in this project, depicting people as whichever Deity of Beauty you are dedicated to! Get out there and #ShowMeFreyja (Or, y’know #ShowMeAphrodite, #ShowMe[YourGodHere])
