Continuing my theme of Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween party decorations and treats, I decided to make Oogie Boogie cupcakes! Believe it or not, it isn’t as much frosting as it looks, but still enough to give you a good sugar rush.

What you will need:

  • 1 box cake mix (and ingredients required on box)
  • White frosting
  • Green food coloring
  • Marshmallows
  • Black decorating frosting
  • Gummy worms!

I also found some excellent cupcake liners that were Halloween themed, but they certainly are not required to pull off the look.

Instructions

1. Bake your cupcakes according to the directions on the box. I also recommend doubling the cupcake liners if you have a fun design, as the design was not nearly as visible once baked. Let cupcakes cool on cooling rack completely.

2. In a small bowl, mix white frosting with green food coloring until you get it to the green color you desire. Scoop frosting into a frosting gun or cake decorating bag. I highly recommend a frosting gun. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby last year for just $15, and have used it so many times for different baking projects, totally worth the cost. It also is a lot easier to use than a cake decorating bag, so there is that too.

3. Cut a marshmallow in half, and place on the center of your cupcake. Then, using the smooth tip, frost around the marshmallow and top in a cone shape (think ice cream cone). Use a knife to smooth out the lines, but it doesn’t need to be perfect by any means, as oogie boogie does have natural wrinkles.

4. Finish off the face with the black decorating frosting, creating an open mouth and slit like eyes, using a picture for reference if preferred. Use the gummy worms for decorating around the cupcakes!

Also, my sister had a great idea once I was already done with the cupcakes, so I didn’t get a chance to try it, but think it could work well. Instead of using a marshmallow to pad up the frosting, you could curl up gummy worms, which would be just like Oogie Boogie’s real insides!

  • "Sometimes, you just want things to stay the way they are forever. But you can’t. And they won’t." - Girl in Space

Because i'm trying this thing where I post each look in 3's to keep my Insta page even, and I seriously can't express how hauntingly gorgeous the intros are for each Girl in Space episode. I'm re-listening to the episodes now, and I so excited for 109 since I have NO CLUE what is going to happen! Also, after a few weeks without looking at them, this is one of my favorite pictures, and I can't believe I didn't post it first!
  • "Yeah, I’m glad I’m back, too." Episode 108 of the @girlinspacepodcast  left me with SO MANY QUESTIONS!!! Is Kai alive? Where the heck is Thor? Who is the "lion's paw?" But the biggest unknown is just how important the dwarf star "Ra" is likely to become in the plot of 109... and is why Ra is included in my makeup! The warm glowing orb on my eye is in reference to my suspicions that Ra will soon become a much more relevant part of the Girl in Space plot very soon. #girlinspace #findme #nomurdering #savekillbot #prayforkai
  • Galaxy in action! Quick peek at the movement of the makeup before I put on my wig, which covered a lot of the detail. Gotta love that "sunshine" glare on the shiny black surface! I bought a finishing powder this week to hopefully counteract this in the future. Or just back away from the light.... :P
  • Disappearing into the music...
I was really digging my latest playlist when I started my galaxy makeup last weekend, so I started blacking out everything besides my face to procrastinate taking off my headphones. I took this photo halfway through to see how well I would blend into my background, and kind of liked how this "progress" shot turned out. Funny thing was, this was the last pic where I had a true infinite background, my camera (phone) couldn't quite hang once I was fully blacked out. Time to consider a real camera?
  • Let yourself be found... Another shot of my galaxy inspired by the @girlinspacepodcast. If you haven't heard of this AMAZING audio novella, I highly recommend... trust me, you are in for a treat! #girlinspace #findme #nomurdering 
This look took around 3 hours, and while I love the images with the wig, it covered up a lot of the detail. If you try a galaxy look, allow yourself some patience. It didn't look like a lot until I was well into adding color. Take it slow, and keep layering colors, and suddenly it will start to take shape!

This look was completed using @mehronmakeup paradise paints from the standard, pastels, and brilliant pallets.
  • Find me... This galaxy makeup is inspired by my FAVORITE audio novella,@girlinspacepodcast, though I may be a bit biased. If you haven't yet started listening, you are in for a treat! Enter the world of the character "X" aboard the Cavatica, as she monitors the radiation from the Red Dawrf Star, Ra. Alone.

Season one is still in progress, so there is plenty of time to join the fun! #girlinspace #findme #nomurdering

This look was completed using @mehronmakeup paradise paints from the standard, pastels, and brilliant pallets. Honestly, this is the most color intensive look I have done so far, I had cosmetic wedges everywhere! I pulled it together with a @rockstarwigs long curly in Very Berry.
  • Finally, the last in my “sketched” look (for now). Thieve last few weeks have been absolutely insane, and im still processing. I’m going to have to set aside some time for another look this week, there is something so tranquil about turning yourself into a blank canvas in the most literal sense.
  • Theres nothing quite like painting yourself completely white to make you realize how yellow your teeth are getting. Time to cut back on the coffee! JK, that might actually kill me. #tissuetestfail #needsomewhitestrips #cresttotherescue #notanad #butyoucanpaymeanyway?
  • I sometimes can take well over 200 photos of various looks, just to make sure I get the right one... i don't pretend to be a photographer! Even with so many photos, I will often only post maybe 3-4, which makes me a little sad since I spend so much time on some of these! So here are a few more of my "Migraine" Twenty One Pilots inspired look. I managed to get quite a few shots of this look before adding the tears for the completed migraine look, and I really do love how it looks without any color.
