I found a few threads that mentioned this topic, but not one dedicated to this specific theme.
I am curious if any of you adorn your body in any certain way for your workings?
I am genderqueer, so I cross dress in an androgynous manner many days, but always for my bigger workings. It helps me feel completely like myself, and that provides confidence and the power that comes from that. I wear eyeliner for protection from the "evil eye" and occasionally other light eye makeup. I shave my legs often, and wear tights and skirts, with masculine shirts and more "gender neutral" shoes. This also corresponds to my pantheon in my tradition, as the handful of "deities" I work with show themselves to humans as either gender. However, with some beings or forces I work completely nude, as they find it rude for humans to hide the natural form. I also have ritual jewelry that serves several purposes. My wedding band is silver, made in my ancestors' homeland, with an image of my "patron deity." I wear three lip rings to remind myself of the connection of the inner and outer planes (three is a powerful recurrent number in my practice). I have a parachord bracelet to remind me of the strength and discipline I learned in the Army, and to apply that to my practice. I have a few pendants that I swap out for different reasons.
Anyways, enough about me. I would like to how others adorn their bodies for craft workings! Do you wear special clothing? Practice nude? Have any ritual jewelry? If so, what parts do you do daily? What about big workings? If you don't have any practice regarding what you do/don't wear, what are your thoughts on the topic? Stoked to hear what I am sure is a diverse range of practices!
