(Or, how Kwon Shina should be a fashion designer.)
Seriously, I think way down, on an *actually deep* level, one of the things I love most about the Dreaming Way Tarot by Rome Choi and Kwon Shina is the amazing clothes that a lot of the characters wear.
(Curious about this deck? Here’s my review!)
Here are some of my favourite sartorial moments from this gorgeous deck.
Two of Swords
The white + stunning knitwear theme runs right though the swords suit, making it my favourite. That shoulder warmer looks so cosy! And with secret knitted bloomers to match? Yes please. Also with the white cowboy boots.
I’m into the whole pyjama + strapped-on wings thing going on in the middle here. That and the proof that a crumpled white shirt and jeans is never going to go out of style.
Apron! Bloomers! Slippers! YES!
Page of Wands
Probably not one for Saturday morning in the supermarket – maybe more for some kinda tarot oscar ceremony? Or just for being the damn Page of Wands I guess. Anyway this is one very sexy dress/robe/sarong thing.
Where to even start? Maybe with the glasses. The infinity symbol glasses. This outfit is some kinda Harry Potter steampunk brilliance and I love it.
Eight of Swords
So basically when you wear a giant silk sheet and then put on heavy boots and a thick woollen scarf, you’re gonna look amazing.
Seven of Swords
Again with the knitwear and the boots. A thousand times yes.
Wheel of Fortune
Stripes is all.
*SIGH* This whole thing makes me want to quit this writing gig and dedicate my life to reproducing amazing outfits from tarot cards and becoming a millionaire. Instead, I’m gonna dedicate a few days to making up some of these outfits for myself (though probably not The Magician.)
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
