Weekly Wishlist #102 – Nightmare Before Christmas

This week’s theme is all Nightmare Before Christmas! Because I know I can’t be the only one out there listening to the soundtrack at least once every other week starting in July, right? Please tell me I’m not the only one…

Jack Skellington Band Tee

(The Goose Tee)

I love this make of Jack Skellington into a Band Tee! Because we know his little xylophone band would indeed be called “The Bone Daddies”

Jack Skellington Sweater

(Torrid)

Take your Skellington obsession a step further and pair the tee with this cozy sweater! Ive hoped they would bring this to my local Torrid, but will likely have to order online.

Nightmare Before Christmas Candle Set

Nightmare Before Christmas Candles(Black Castle Candles)

OMG I love these! I have ALWAYS wanted to get jars like this, but just didn’t know what I would use them for. Candles in these earthy, spicy aromas is the perfect answer.

Nightmare Before CoffeeNightmare before coffee(JSAPPARELB)

Finally! A shirt that combines my two greatest loves! Caffeine and Nightmare Before Christmas! Too much truth though, definitely not a morning person.

Just in case you weren’t taking my caffeine problem seriously enough.

I can get away with a lot of Halloween shenanigans during the fall, but I wonder if I could get Damir to agree to having this up in the living room year round…?

Lock, Shock & Barrell Mug

(Left of Rose)

Oogie Boogie’s Henchman, Lock, Shock & Barrell are the underrated favorites of the movie! While they are inherently devious, being children of Halloween Town, they do celebrate the end of Oogie Boogie with a snowball fight in the end.

Jack and Sally Scotch Glasses

Need something a little stronger than coffee? Try these delightful scotch glasses! Honestly, I would use these for everything 😛

Jack & Sally Decals102-jack and sally decals(The Nerd Collective)

These awesome decals are a great and cheap way to personalize your computer, but could also be ordered in white and applied to your car! Sorry, no kiddos version, but this would be great for an eclectic couple. Maybe there are some Lock Shock and Barrell ones out there?

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

Instagram

  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
  • “Oh Chucky look at us. We belong dead”
Last one of Tiffany.... which iconic horror villain should I do next? Tell me your favorites! #horrormovies #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #horrorfan
  • “I’ll kill anybody, but I’ll only sleep with someone I love.”
A girl has to have standards!!! 😂
Personally I loved Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, how about you? #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #chuckycosplay
  • "Barbie, eat your heart out."
You can't do Chucky without Tiffany! I apparently have super thick eyebrows because I felt they were incredibly difficult to cover properly, though I probably just need more practice blocking them out. I also know the doll didn't have bangs, but the actress did, so I felt like this blonde wig still did the trick. #brideofchucky #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #tiffanyvalentine #cosplay
  • This anatomy work was a ton of fun to do! I might have to try something like it again soon. I also liked that I could keep it on much longer than I do any of my face makeup, and even left it on overnight (with liberal amounts of barrier spray) to show family the next day. I usually have to wash it off and head to bed, so it was a rare treat to show it to others! #bodyartist #anatomyart #anatomymakeup #sciencenerd
  • My first look over 200 likes!! 🤩🤩 Seriously, I 💜you guys, and it couldn’t be on a more special makeup to me. I’ve wanted to do this makeup for awhile now, because I actually struggle greatly with my hands. While this isn’t 100% anatomically correct, all of the structures in my wrists that I have had surgery on (on both hands!) are here. Because of a neck injury when I was young, I’ve had a ton of nerve and tendon issues stemming from where in my neck was damaged and I’m lucky to have had good surgeons and insurance to do what was necessary to keep me healthy. I do have to do a lot to keep my hands and arms in the best of shape (daily stretches, wearing braces at night, KT tape) but I’m so thankful that I can keep doing the things I love... like doing makeup! #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #anatomyart #anatomymakeup #bodypaint
