Hi! I’m Mad Like Alyce.

Welcome to my little corner of the web, where I share my latest music finds, endless list of projects, and about aspiring to live a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain. There is so much life to live, and this is my journey to finding myself after a long journey of healing. Walk with me.

The Less Abbreviated Version

I work as a project manager in online marketing, but have done a lot of soul searching and realized that neither my diagnosis nor my job define who I am. I like to consider myself to be a writer, and while someday I hope to write a fully fledged novel, this blog has really revitalized a creative side of me that I had not been able to fully exercise in years, and by immersing myself in the blog, I feel that I have become more centered… really starting to find comfort in who I am.

While you can define yourself as a lot of different things, (writer, project manager, etc.) I really consider myself a project person… perhaps why both my job and this blog appeal to me. My job allows my introverted analytical side to thrive, while my blog lets me express my creativity (or so I think!). But give me a project, and I will dive in head first… I always have at least 5 active projects in different levels of completion.

So what am I interested in? I am a huge Pit Bull lover, and have a 7 year old pittie named Mystic. I love reading, and have read the Harry Potter series from cover to cover more times than I can count. I’m also a fan of the “Zombie Culture” and love having discussions of post-apocalyptic survival tactics. Along with that, I am a HUGE fan of Halloween! It is the best holiday ever, and allows me to challenge myself by making elaborate costumes.

I live with my boyfriend, who is Bosnian, and thus I enjoy trying to make traditional Bosnian meals, as well as baking pretty much anything! I’m also getting back on a health kick, and am really working on taking a healthier look at who I am, not just being physically healthy.

As for my next project? Who knows? All I know as I can’t wait.

  1. Hey there!

    We met when you were getting your fabric cut at Joann. Just wanted to let you know I’m loving your blog. 🙂

    Also giving you the link to my website….which hasn’t been touched in a while. You inspired me to get back into a routine. So, thank you for that.

    Stay Positive,

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!

  • 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
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • 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
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
