Concert #1- Theory of a Deadman

Just a week after kicking off my 30 by 30 challenge, I knocked of concert 1 of 3. Theory of a Deadman is one of my all time favorite bands, and I have been head over heels since I heard the first 4 notes of Santa Monica. They put on a fantastic show, and even though this is the 5th time I have seen them live, it certainly won’t be the last.

Theory of a Deadman – Essentials

Live from the Hard Rock

The hard rock casino in Sioux City has a nice, intimate little venue, though, I’ve made the decision that for really small venues like this… I’m going to be the dweeb wearing ear plugs. Large venues are fine, but these smaller ones are hell on my ears. Too much rock, too little space. While the concert is definitely worth it, I had ringing in my ears for 24 hours, and i’m going to be as deaf as my dad if I don’t take better care of my hearing.

Overall, I think the Hard Rock does a good job, and it is just over an hour’s drive from Sioux Falls.

Theory Swag

I would also love to collect band tees from my favorites, since I can finally afford to buy tickets AND a t-shirt. They had a great tank top that wasn’t in their merch store that I ended picking up.

 

Do you ever have a band T that you lost and always regret? I have two… one was a Velvet Revolver T that someone stole out of the laundry my Sophomore year, and the other was this yellow Theory T Shirt, which I lent to my sister ages ago because it didn’t fit anymore, and though I think she might still have it, its not something I can wear right now, even if I asked for it back. If I ever see this on sale in my size again, Im going to have to swoop it up.

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!

  • 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
  • “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
