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!

  • She’s too cute to be a scary clown, unlike her counterparts. The green stripes are in reference to Cringe’s twin, Sinister the Clown. The masks are the same, but slightly different pain, I might have to give Sinister some love as well. #hauntlife #clown #clownmakeup #sfxmua
  • Another makeup I did before haunt started that I wanted to get up@yet this year. I was trying to force myself to do makeup outside of my haunt duties, so i went for recreating one our our actual clowns, Cringe! I believe his actual mask was done by Shattered FX. #clown #clownmakeup #sfxmua
  • You can almost ignore the lip placement on this one. What look should I do next? Ive been in a dark place for the last two months, and while I’m feeling like myself again enough to want to do something, I’m also thinking it won’t necessarily be a “bright” or cheery look. Maybe I’ll surprise myself. #grinch #grinchmas #grinchmakeup #sfxmua
  • You guys are so wonderful! I’ve gotten great feedback from friends, and I’m starting to see past what bothered me before. I need to start loving myself a bit more, and stop letting my self doubt from getting in my way. #grinchmas #grinchmakeup #sfxmua
  • Ever create something that didn’t live up to your expectations, so you didn’t share it? When I did my Grinch last year, I wanted to take inspiration from one of my favorite horror artists, @mrrevenge, and modify that grin onto what I already had. It was 2am when I started making my evil version, so i took a shortcut by trying to save most of my cheek wrinkles, and it caused the mouth placement to be off. Looking back now, I still wish I had done the mouth differently, but I can always try it again. #progressnotperfection #nofilter #sfxmua #grinch
  • Finishing up the Shego 3pack in the hopes I will do something new here in the next week. I’ve been utterly exhausted since haunt... I have too much of my introvert self up in the past 5 months and it’s taken everything I had. The last month has been good recovery. I’m working on setting new goals and starting to feel excited about makeup related things again. Take care of yourselves  introverts. #selfcare #introvert #hauntlife
  • “I got an early parole, only here to say hi.” Can’t stop Shego feom@coming back atcha! Ok, serious question, who wants to see a glam Dr. Drakken? #kimpossible #shego #halloween
  • Got to work with my sister on a test makeup for her Halloween costume and we both did Shego makeup together! I know she has black hair, but my only black wig just wasn’t working. She did fantastic for her first time! #shego #kimpossible #sistermakeup
  • When you are so busy with #hauntlife you forget you have Instagram. I’m pulling together a video shoot for our haunt trailer video and an #sfxmakeup internship for aspiring artists. I sleep too, sometimes.
