I just found a blog, Sexy-Witch by Red Witch. It seemed to be a narrow topic but she makes it interesting. I particularly enjoyed following her time line and seeing how the depiction of the young witch has changed over time. They range from cutesy to strong. Be warned – lots of undress and a few wanton poses. You can also watch her slide-show on youtube, if you prefer.
Back to Sexy-Witch, I’m a bit surprised that Circe didn’t show up but maybe she’s just in backlog.
There is a Circe who was the enemy of Wonder Woman – she showed up in Justice League Unlimited. Still, all sexy witches owe the mythical Circe a lot.
Take a look at the photograph of the White Witch of Narnia from the Image of the Muse website. I tend to think the villainess in movies and books are more interesting that the heroine. As the blogger of Other Kids Pack Lunch puts it, “Like so many villainesses, the White Witch had a great sense of fashion.”
Here’s quiz to find which Disney villainess you are. I was Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty – which is fine by me. She is a bit too austere to be sexy but I loved her tormenting the hero by telling him that he’ll get old. Heh. Plus, there was the whole dragon transformation thing.
The Queen in Snow White is also a bit icy but it’s hard not to root for her.
Archie’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch in her first comic book incarnation is missing as well. Sabrina was lots cooler than either Veronica or Betty and I think her freckles are cute.
Her new mangafied self does not appear particularly sexy but she looks tons more interesting than before.
Illyana Rasputin as Magik -a super-victim if there ever was one. But pretty sexy – if you can look past the horns and glowing eyes.
Scarlet Witch - sexy despite the weird red/pink outfit. I think maybe she was not using magic but instead was a mutant.
Queen Narcissa, stepmother/queen/witch, of Enchanted is certainly bosomy as the animated character.
Same thing with Frieda, the Stepmother/Witch, in Happily N’Ever After. She was embarrassingly slinky for a kids’ cartoon.
There is also Karla from Record of Lodoss War. Whether she qualifies as a witch or not may be arguable. I thought she was sexy in a creepy kind of way.
My ultimate favorite witch is Bunny from Charm School by Elizabeth Watasin which I’ve mentioned before. I have only read/purchased the first book but it turns out that there are five out now. Yeah! Bunny is the blond witch who is super cute.
I have become busier than I had expected and work on my posts are developing very slowly. I’ve been reading these books.
Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn – Coming-of-age fantasy novel. Each summer, young Coriel, a witch in training, visits Castle Auburn and crushes on the handsome prince. However, she finds as she grows older that the world is more complex and more sinister than she ever dreamed of as a child. Charming and engrossing.
Spellbinder by L. J. Smith. Paranormal romance/young adult. A young witch Thea must keep her attraction to a ‘human’ a secret from everyone, even him. If she doesn’t, both of them will be killed by the creatures of the Night World. Enjoyable – easy to read and lots of angst-filled fun.
One Graphic Novel (series)
The Dreaming by Queenie Chan. (read all 3 vols.) Horror/young adult. Haunted house story set in the Australian bush. Recently orphaned twin girls, Jeanie and Amber, are sent to a remote boarding house. They find the places holds more to dread than homework and spiteful classmates. Creepy. I’d like to read more of Chan’s work. The omake, bonus pages, at the end are funny, especially the one in the 3rd volume.
Two Manga (series)
Good Witch of the West by Noriko Ogiwara (read vols. 1 & 2). Shoujo. A pretty teenage girl Firiel lives in a magical kingdom. Her mother is dead and her father abandons her for a distant research mission. When her best friend Rune is abducted, Firiel musters her courage and strength and sets out to rescue him. This looks promising.
Kitchen Princess by Natusumi Ando (read vols. 1 -3). Shoujo. Orphan Najika goes to Seika Academy to find her ‘flan prince’ who once comforted her and gave her a spoon. More importantly, Najika is discovering who she is and becoming a chef just like her parents. Her love interests are Sora and Daichi who are estranged brothers who both attend Seika Academy too. There are recipies for each of the dishes that Najika prepares in the volume. I’m enjoying it quite a bit.
