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!

Instagram

  • Hey Guys! I've been quiet on Insta so far this October, but its because IM SO BUSY and i'm pretty much in Halloween Heaven. Between finishing my first commissioned costume (its super simple, but I completed foam armor for the first time!!!) and doing makeup at the haunted house, i've hardly had time for sleep... and I wouldn't have it any other way. 
This is one of my first clown practice runs. I tried doing 30 minutes or less, and initially I wasn't planning on posting. Having a few days of the crazed makeup chaos that is getting ready for house open under my belt, I have a new appreciation for what details you can and simply cannot complete in such a short time period, and kind of like the grunge this clown pulled off. Not everything you will create is perfect, but thats how we all learn! #clowns #hauntedhouse #halloweenmakeup #halloween2018
  • I think this barrel look could make a great clown character.... am I going over to the dark side and starting to like clowns?!?! Only time will tell, and there are still 20 days until Halloween! #nightmarebeforechristmas #halloweentown #lockshockandbarrel
  • "I say that we take a cannon, aim it at his door
And then knock three times
And when he answers
Sandy Claws will be no more!"
The props for Barrel were actually my favorite, even if they are a bit cheesy, and make this costume all the more fun. I'll have to keep an eye out for a skeleton costume this year... I would like to do this one again! #nightmarebeforechristmas #halloweentown #lockshockandbarrel
  • "We're his little henchmen and
We take our job with pride
We do our best to please him
And stay on his good side"
#Nightmarebeforechristmas #halloweentown #lockshockandbarrel
  • I am SO FREAKING PLEASED with this makeup... and I have no justification for why I love Barrel more than Shock... Could be the fun loving character or just that the colors popped more in these photos. Or maybe these clown-like looks are starting to grow on me.... #nightmarebeforechristmas #halloweentown #lockshockandbarrel
  • "Jack said, "We should work together"
Three of a kind
Birds of a feather
Now and forever
Wheeee!!!"
Those poor red eyes! Thats not fx eye-blood... it's what happens when you do too many makeups close together... this stuff can be hell on your skin! They didn't look this red in all of the photos, but they sure felt like it. I have since invested in a serious eye cream... its only one week into October! #redeyes #muaproblems #nightmarebeforechristmas #lockshockandbarrel
  • "Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws
I wanna do it
Let's draw straws"
Maybe it is because this is my shortest wig or just the color palette, but I feel like my Shock makeup came across a bit like Beast Boy from Teen Titans... what do you think? #nightmarebeforechristmas #lockshockandbarrel #teentitans
  • "He'II be so pleased by our success
That he'll reward us too, I bet
Perhaps he'll make his special brew
Of snake and spider stew!"
One last shot of Lock... three guesses what the next one is, and the first two don't count ;) #nightmarebeforechristmas #lockshockandbarrel #halloweentown
  • "First, we're going to set some bait
Inside a nasty trap and wait
When he comes a-sniffing we will
Snap the trap and close the gate"
Ok, i couldn't wait to post this shot with the goofy masks I made 2 years ago... Im obsessed with this gorgeous wig from Webster Wigs. It's seriously my favorite. Speaking of the mask, Im excited to get these new pics posted on the blog, because the makeup and mask pics are super cheesy. It makes me proud to see how much I have improved in both makeup and prop-making in just a few years. #muapassion #lockshockandbarrel #nightmarebeforechristmas
