Why 2022 is, for me, the Year of BabaYagaCore

An elderly crone, Baba Yaga, wears a head kerchief, a floral apron and a shirt with leaves on it. She smiles; she is out in her garden, caressing two jars with people’s surprised heads in them. The text under the image says “Keep your friends close and your enemies in a jar”.

5 photos of a fat white woman in various outfits, usually with multiple necklaces, layers of sweaters or jackets, a head kerchief or a wide headband, and glasses — she holds her phone up to take a mirror selfie.
