Why are we going overboard on witches?

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago Le Futiloscope talked about the irresistible migration of witches to the pantheon of feminist/activist/eco-warriors…well, we’re revisiting them, because, glued to our austere work of decoding trends, we missed out on some nifty shopping ideas, which proves that the poor witch, besides all the rest, has become a shopping icon! Le Futiloscope would be remiss if we didn’t share them with you…

The Tee-shirt Why Should Be All Witches 

We predicted that those T-shirts We Should all be Feminists would find a worthy successor, and voilà, it’s done! And if you want to really pile it on, the brand Vegan Witches (yeah, that’s kind of over the top!) also proposes patches that look great on a jacket or tote bag (black)…

If you think that magic potions are only bought in shady caves, you are entirely mistaken. You can acquire some very cool ones  that won’t at all spoil the décor in your bathroom on the site of Liz Migliorelli, Californian witch herbalist. We like Saturn Return (that promotes peace and compassion), and Third Eye (which boosts intuition and psychic powers), definitely funkier than lavender oil…

The DIY witches hat

You can stop crocheting boring snoods or beanies for all your friends, there is now a “Blair’s Hat” kit much more trendy and spectacular, you can find the material and the how to at We Are Knitters (sort of the Anny Blatt Yarns of the year 2000)…

We saved the best for last…

Sephora was going to bring out for Halloween (that’s Sephora,right!!) a cute little witch starter kit dreamed up by the brand US Pinerose (tarot, crystals, a smudge stick, nothing terribly crazy) and guess what, “real” witches brought suit against both of them for “cultural appropriation”, and of course, the product was never put on the shelves! When the self-interested are the inquisitors we need help, no??? If you’re still frustrated, you can find lots more of them on Etsy
