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!

  • 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
