7 Deadly Sins


Collaborations with fellow bloggers is great fun and our latest challenge took a dark turn into the realm of the 7 Deadly Sins.



Yes, my sin is indeed WRATH. For years I have struggled with my temper/my anger/my rage. My anger is black. Seething, deadly and abysmal with red ruthlessness at it's edges.




I have it in check now but that is much to do with the calming influence of Hiro rather than my own personal ability to transcend the bloody curse of it. I am not proud of my sin. I cannot be proud of allowing something to consume me so entirely that I lose control of the reins of sensibility/reason/empathy I become a reckless fire and by the time it subsides, I hate myself for it for I often realise that it is myself that I have hurt the most.

I used ADDICTION #Shangri La with L'oreal Infallible #Burning Black for my eyes and Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Nude. I didnt use any foundation.

My honest opinion is that these so called Deadly Sins are in fact shit that make us all very human.But stipulations and exposed guts aside, I am not the only sinner. I have 6 sinners to wallow in the Styx with:


Pinkfish Tart's Sin is Gluttony:



Yumeko's Sin is Pride:



Justine's Sin is Envy:



More Sinners will be arriving soon.

  5. Love this post. You carried out "Wrath" beautifully. The stitching and the scar looks so realistic.

    I, too, have had my shares of "WRATH" and though it's an "ugly" inner and outer feeling, I do believe it makes one stronger in their own way of dealing with the world and life in general when viewed in a more positive light.
