  • Work in progress. Outlook doesn't look too good for my styrofoam buddy... #zombie #zombiemakeup #brains #workinprogress #halloween
  • #TBT to my first full scale #Halloween DIY for Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. And to think, I made this without a sewing machine! Lots of lessons learned, such as that I needed a thimble (OUCH) and that I really needed to get an actual sewing machine. http://madlikealyce.com/2015/10/09/costume-tutorial-sally-from-nightmare-before-christmas/

So here is to a lazy Sunday with my best chill buddy. This face isn't new relaxation goal 😂. #lazysundayafternoon #selfcare #timetorelax
  • A few days late, but still inspired by the eclipse! Audrey II hails from one of my favorite musicals, "Little Shop of Horrors" and was a fun one to recreate. Just a little reminder not to buy plants during a solar eclipse. Who else saw the total eclipse?
