FAIRYTALE MEME: 1/5 magical objects
↳Mirrors

Mirrors in fairytales can stand for both vanity and metaphorical reflection. According to ancient customs, the mirror is the magic porthole by which a person is linked to their reflection. In extension, the belief that demons have no reflection was helpful when peasants suspected someone of being a vampire. For example, the connotation that Snow White’s stepmother could not see her own self in a mirror (since she had to ask the mirror how she looked) makes her all the more evil a force to be reckoned with.
