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

Jack and sally scotch glasses(Ryan’s Art Corner)

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!

  • Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more. 
Super excited that my family is NOT doing gifts this year! We are all just bringing a side dish, dessert, and a board game for some quality family time. What are you doing for Christmas? #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies #grinchmas
  • Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4 o'clock: wallow in self pity. 4:30: stare into the abyss. 5 o'clock: solve world hunger (tell no one). 5:30: jazzercise. 6:30: dinner with me, I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock: wrestle with my self loathing. I'm booked! Course if I bump the loathing to 9 I can still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear! #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies
  • "I'm gunna throw up... and then I'm going to DIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!"
Probably my favorite line in the entire movie, so much so that it has stuck with me for years. This is often how my anxiety feels like, and I think of this line from the Grinch often when I'm struggling, even at the height of summer! So, the Grinch is a bit near and dear to my heart, and no one will ever take Jim Carrey's place in my heart, even if if it does grow three sizes. #grinch #thegrinchthatstolechristmas #christmas #grinchmakeup
  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • 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
