Costumes & Co-hosts! Highlights from my First Live Stream

If you follow me on Twitter or YouTube then you knew about my live show I did last week. I dressed up in costumes and had the viewers guess who I was, meaningless points were given out, there were cupcakes, Jim played a few songs, and other hijinks ensued. Here is a short highlights reel of the night. Also, be sure to be subscribed to my channel so you don't miss the December show!

Studio Ghibli Museum - Japan Day 10

IMG_5053 One of my favorite days in Japan was when we went to the Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. We were not allowed to take photos inside, so all of these are of the exterior. It was such a magical place. We got to see a short film about sumo wrestler mice, there was a huge cat bus that kids could play in, and the building it's self was so beautiful with it's winding stairways and it's stain glass windows with all the Ghibli characters hidden inside. If I'm ever in Japan, I think I'd like to come back to the Studio Ghibli Museum.

Bustopher Jones

Bustopher Jones 
"He's the Cat we all greet as he walks down the street
In his coat of fastidious black:
No commonplace mousers have such well-cut trousers
Or such an impeccable back."
So back in 2010 there was this YouTube competition called Super Note. You pick a team headed up by different YouTubers and film yourself holding one continuous note. So, naturally, I chose do to my video in full Bustopher Jones makeup (complete with a mustache.)

Found Favorites #20 Hallowen

It's been a while since I made a Found Favorites post so I thought I'd bring it back with some Halloween awesomeness I found on Etsy!

This Human Rib Skeleton Ring is both awesome and disturbing. The perfect combo for Halloween.

This beautiful Autumn Faun horned Head Wreath made by one of my favorites Swedish artists of all time, Liselotte Eriksson.

So, this is Pumpkin Vanilla Bean Face Mask. I like the idea of pampering yourself and staying within the spirit of the season at the same time.

How cool is this Snake Ear Cuff? The stripes have a very Tim Burton feel to them.

Video Alonzo Makeup and Wig

AlonzoMakeupAndWig2 Back in 2010 I was commissioned by my friend Peter to make him an alonzo wig. (He's The Rum Tum Tugger here) I had never made a Cats wig before but I thought it would be a great learning experience if I ever wanted to make one for myself (still haven't). Here is the final product with some Alonzo makeup I threw on to model it. The makeup is Snazaroo (water based). Watch a reversed application of this makeup at the bottom of the post.
