To beautiful mythological creatures stand before us, but we only have one photo in our hands. And this photo represents who will be Jezebel’s Next Top Creature.


The results from yesterday’s contest were...

...drum roll please...

Baba Yaga (1) and the Siren (6)!

Baba Yaga is the lovable, wicked-looking crone who lives in a house that stands on chicken bones and is terrifying. So, truly a look we love to emulate, and particularly one that’s great for fall. And doesn’t a broom just make the best accessory? Perfect for whacking unwanted strangers off your porch.

And then there’s the Siren, who according to Greek mythology were winged creatures who lounged by the ocean but in recent pop culture has been depicted as a monstrous goth mermaid-type, so just to remind you we’ve been going with the latter. And remember, these ladies lure sailors to their death with their voices. Hot!

So what will it be, the weird old woman in the woods or the dark beach beauty who hates men?


Here’s the poll so you can see the full journey:

I feel like ultimately this has comed down to People Taking This Seriously vs. Everyone Else.

Because come on, the Siren is so cliched; gorgeous and obviously a good fit. BABA YAGA is the true hero here.
