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 ūüėõ

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!

Costume & Makeup Tutorials

  • I didn't want to say anything, then... or even now. But what someone else decided to do became a part of who I am now. A part of the damage I will always carry. My voice may have been small while I put myself together. Until I learned that the part of me that I am proudest of, the strength in me to overcome, is something you will never take. #metoo
  • Should have known #fridaythe13th would be the PERFECT day to start shooting my next project. You guys... I can't even begin to say how excited I am to share it with you, but for now, a quick peek.
  • Even in death, #pumpkinspice is life! Zombie walks are popping up all around the country, and if you want to wear your costume early as a "zombie" but don't want to actually damage the costume, this basic zombie is perfect! Or for me, it's a casual October Saturday....
  • Do you get to 3pm and feel like a total zombie without a caffeine jolt? Hey, me too! A playful take on the #basic girl, this is a tutorial that can give your costume zombie chic without the wounds and gore. Grab that #pumpkinspice latte and tackle those next few hours like the newly undead!
  • Brains... it's what's for dinner! Damir and I are at a place where he no longer questions brains in the fridge. #relationshipgoals #halloween #brains #brain #sfxmakeup #sfxmakeupartist
  • The easiest surgery recovery! If only I would bounce back from the real surgery as fast... instead of 6 weeks in a sling. This video shows just how easy these gel prosthetics are to remove, as opposed to spirit gum or pros-aid which require remover products.
  • After a year of having an injured shoulder, I am finally going to have surgery! For real... not this tutorial. But it IS inspired by my upcoming surgery, and the tutorial also contains a bit of a PSA on how you need to always keep fighting for your health and find a doctor who will fight with you. A MRI mistake lead to 9 months of additional pain, frustration, and medical costs. I'll get to spend this Halloween relaxing at home (in a sling) watching scary movies! Tutorial on the blog, link in bio!
  • Bruises are a great way to add interest to any Halloween costume, but I actually appreciate them for their behavior based on anatomy. They layers and shape you give your bruise are what can make you average injury go from "ouch" to "wow!" And just a slight change in these layers can show healing, or signs of deathly rot. I love making makeup bruises, mostly because I never recall how I get them in real life... I just run into things a lot apparently. The tutorial is on the blog, link in bio!
  • When you find the perfect coat in a consignment store to play Georgie from IT. But you know me, this coat would be ruined with sfx makeup and $50 was just a bit more than I wanted to spend. #cosplay #it #stephenking #halloweenmakeup #halloween #pennywise #georgie
