Without a name, without a face, without a soul... for it takes on the form and alias of all that it inhabits. This demon has stalked this earth since the moment mankind consumed itself with the bitterness of self doubt, hatred, and fear. You see this anonymous demon feeds off those of whom have given into the temptation of a hidden insecurity, a forbidden self hate, a shadow of doubt... and so the list goes on. As it slowly takes your form, this demon sinks its razor teeth into your deepest fears and consumes your soul.
There are no spells, no magic, no biblical phrase that can be spoken to rid this evil..... There is one and ONLY one way to cast this callous demon from ones mind, body and soul. You alone must dig deep within yourself and find just one forgotten shimmer of love. Its a love that each and everyone of us has, but at times is forgotten due to an overwhelming cloud of darkness. If and only when you allow that love to grow, you will start to conquered your own self doubts, your inner hatred, your fears.... that is when this featureless demon will release its jaws from your once brittle core.
But be warned, this demon will take on a new name, a new face, a new soul. Will it be yours? Are you a prisoner of your own pain?
Short Story Written By:
Shanice L. Wadell
Hope you enjoyed my first Vocal Post, Short Story and Makeup Art! I want five in deeper and continue on WHY I created this look, my origin backstory and what it means to me...
To be honest this look was basically inspired by my past experiences... my story, and my own struggles of overcoming of being 100% happy with who I am and learning to love myself with all my imperfections and flaws (which I had mentioned all that real talk in a past look). It took me quite some time to finally let go of my "demons". In a way I am grateful that I have come to know them... It gives me a reminder of how far I have come and embracing who I am today. I have mentioned this before but I want to mention it again (and yes although this is a demon makeup this statement fits in perfectly). Do not let hate consume you. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, know that you are beautiful. Don't let self doubts, or inner demons stop you from embracing all that you are. Truly learn to LOVE YOURSELF. The moment you realize your worth, the world is yours. Spread the love and Appreciate how unique and amazing we all are, especially all my awesome freaks and creeps out there (you know who you are).
