WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: INDIA

India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).

I did hair and makeup (amongst other things) for my roommate’s bumper contest entry for the Savannah Film Festival! You should all give this a watch because this film turned out so amazingly well I can’t even believe I got to be involved with this project!

It’s voting time on the contest so if you guys watched it and wanted to support us, we’d really appreciate it if you would give us a thumbs up on YouTube!

The Magic Circle, 1886, John William Waterhouse

This has been one of my favorite pieces of artwork since I was a kid! I’m a huge fan of his work.
