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!

  • Happy Valentines Day! I'll always love you for your BRAINS!!!
I did this iZombie Liv Moore in Full-On Zombie back before my surgery and just haven't gotten around to posting until now! I had wanted to come up with some kind of Valentines day themed look to kick me back into things now that my arm is mostly functional, but I was just struggling to think of what I wanted to do. Valentines Day is just not my thing. Unless there is chocolate. I Digress.
Halfway into my glass of wine, I realized this was the perfect time to post this look. I technically have a video, but the jury is still out on whether or not to post it just yet. I'm mostly just glad to be at a point where I can start experimenting with makeup again!
  • Anybody else struggle this time of year? I’m looking at these lovely sunbeams from my Alice In Wonderland shoot this summer to bring some sunshine to my day. I’ll be doing just fine, then be lying on the couch trying to feel like I can breathe again. I know it is ok, and these increased symptoms will pass, but it’s certainly not fun, especially when I have projects and ideas id like to tackle, but can’t get past this paralyzing anxiety. What do you guys use to help with SADD? #SADD #anxiety #ptsd #seasonaldepression  #winteristheworst #whydoilivehere
  • Halfway done! Still a ton to do, and I’ve learned ALOT already, like how not to sew in an invisible zipper, that I need a seam ripper, and need to invest in real fabric shears. But it’s actually coming together! Having never used a pattern before, I admit I looked at the pile of paper with some skepticism. Also, it kind of matches my couch. 😂 #cosplay #sewing #mccallspatterns #mccalls #mccallscosplay #spacesuit #plussizecosplay
  • Hanging out with mystic while I tackle my next sewing project. I like to think her interest is in hanging out with me, but there is a high chance she just wants the Fritos I’ve been munching... #cosplay #cosplaydog #sewing #mccallspatterns #cosplaymccalls #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram
  • Bull in boots! It was enough of a battle to get her into them, and she refuses to move anywhere wearing them! 😂😂😂 I was so looking forward to a little dance, but so far she is just laying there looking helpless. Maybe if I get out the peanut butter? #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #doginboots #notcoolmom
  • I decided to spring for new ornaments this year and went from hyper colorful to classic beauty with a Gryffindor Christmas tree, complete with Hedwig ornaments! No DIY here (except the jingle bell snitch) just a very content Gryffindor snuggling on the couch enjoying the lights and a glass of wine. #twomoresleeps #harrypotterchristmas #gryffindor #housepride
  • New Christmas gift to myself... the long curly in emerald green from @rockstarwigs ! I’m hoping my ideas for some holiday makeup looks can inspire me to get back at it now that I can finally use my right arm! Any guesses or requests? #merrychristmastome #cosplaychristmas #rockstarwigs
  • The top 9 for madlikealyce! It has been a fantastic year, trying out all kinds of new things and really expanding on my love for makeup and cosplay. Thank you to all of my AMAZING FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS who have been with me on this journey. I can wait until my shoulder has healed enough to get back to it, I have a whole LIST of things I am dying to try! In the meantime, I’m at least back to writing on the blog, so make sure to check me out there, Link in bio. ❤️ you all!
  • Sick day snuggles. But at least it’s my first day out of the sling! #countdownisover #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbull #drinkallthetea
