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!

  • William Faulkner said to “it’s hard to kill your darlings” meaning it can be difficult to critique your own work, especially if you put a lot into it. Stephen King went on to say you should put your work away for six months to a year before editing so you can clearly evaluate. I’m really glad I looked back at this one. Even without the wig, I think it’s striking. #hauntmua #sfxmua #stevenkingismyhero #skullmakeup
  • I’m going through old pictures and ran across this one. I remember not really being happy with this look, and sure, the lines could have been cleaner, but I still really like this! I think we should always go back and look at work a year later... even if it really want good, it shows us just how far we have come in so little time. #skullmakeup #hauntmua #sfxmua #personalgrowth
  • I often do a look that I’m just not all that happy with afterwards, as is with this “halfway to Halloween” clown I created back in.... May? Looking at it now, I don’t know what it is exactly it was that I didn’t like... maybe I just needed a orange wig? I almost like a progress pic more than the finished product. What do you think?#clowns #clownmakeup
  • Throwback to my first actual clown makeup! The eye shapes were inspired by a few looks by @totalnightmaretravis, and i was incredibly excited about this wig! The Rhapsody Short by @rockstarwigs is probably the most fun wig to wear that I currently own. I only have red, but am heavily considering another color for my collection.
Happy National Clown Week! #justclowningaround #clowns #scaryclowns
  • Happy National Clown Week! A year ago, I wasn’t a big fan of clowns, but I practiced so many clown makeups that I eventually came to find them to be one of my favorites, and even created my own clown character. This is the first actual clown makeup I recreated based on @grave_digger_the_clown for last year’s haunt. Turned out a lot prettier than he is, no? 😉

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart

  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
