So recently if you have seen this picture ------>
You'll find that in the description, someone named Katherine references a group called the Mimes of Despair.
Well by some....uncanny fortune that's a thing in my OCverse.
So today I wish to expand on this.
The Mimes of Despair:
-Although when this group really started, it was technically founded by Mima (My oc) due to the fact she was lonely. Basically given a magic paintbrush with transformation properties, she was able to use it under one circumstance---to turn others into mimes like her as well. However, she didn't target people left and right, she was more on set with targeting people who were facing some depressions/hopelessness/upset/etc., . Ever since then, she has been using her paintbrush on those people, making them mimes too and was able to get enough people to make this cult of hers, thus fully forming the Mimes of Despair for...who knows how long.
-All members having been put into this cult all have some sort of loyalty/obsession over Mima (most likely do to her not making the people she affected feel lonely anymore). There are cases however, where the affected person may obsess/be loyal to them TOO
much or not be obsessive/loyal at all.
-The former on that matter--the mimes that are really obsessive often are a bit too caring of their cult/leader or "queen" as some of those put it. Those shits are so obsessed that they'll take the chance of trying to turn others into Mimes too, most usually their family members or such.
-If someone becomes a mime then they'll usually be escorted to a hotel-like building where they'll most likely stay at. However it's not the case for some mimes, as some would rather prefer to be outside walking on their own (perhaps if they aren't happy with where they were dragged to they can go outside for the whole day, but they'll have to return to the hotel every night as a rule regardless.)
-Everyone that is a Mime of Despair, obviously, has to wear mime attire---that includes mime clothes and mime makeup (their skin has to be colored white as well as their face is). The Mimes of Despair can wear whatever they want--but it must follow within the strict color code of...black, white and red. Hair color is, thankfully, not affected by the color code so hair color can be any color.
-It's also obvious that you're not allowed to speak ever.
Those that do will unfortunately face punishment, more often than not, you'll probably get your mouth sewn shut...
or some other radical mouth punishment.
-Yes yes, you can also be allowed to play music or listen to music, however it has to be instrumental by....default.
-...And you can also paint and stuff, but it has to be....surprise surprise, in black/white/red.
-In short, some often face an identity crisis about how they looked before they decided to be mimes. Although most usually don't care about that, and rather just enjoy and embrace who they are now.
I'll expand it later on since it's still a short list, but this is definitely canon as fuck.*expects ocs for mimes of despair from other people
probably won't get many anyways*
