A freestyle Rum Tum Tugger design done back in 2009. I'm quite proud of the leopard spots, if I do say so myself. I just looked at my folder containing all my past makeup designs and boy are there still so many more to share with you! I hope I can get them all up here before 2014 is over but I'm just not sure. I am nearing the end of my current costumes however. There are about four more of those. Stay tuned!
OOTD - a boho shirt, pink tank top, and some knitted purses from my Etsy shop. I think I'm getting better at this 'modeling for fun' thing. Also, the skirt has pockets!
Shirt //Old Navey
Top // Planet Funk

debut album, Maybe Trapped Mostly Troubled. It's a rare occurrence these days for me to actually purchase a physical album, but I've known Tessa for some time and here videos were some of the few that made me catch the YouTube bug years ago. Her album is great, I can't get the songs out of my head. Here is a video she made previewing the songs in her classic 'cloning' style. Any Meekakitty fans out there?
Today is the 1 year birthday of the Geek Girl Pen Pals Club! As a present, I've made a new Nerdy Monster named Iggly! She is lime green with a little purple pen pal letter! Just head here to enter to win her! If you don't win, head to Nerdy Monsters meet some other friends (you might just find Iggly there eventually!)
Atraielees is my original character (my OC) and my first ever online 'persona'/username. She's the daughter of Mistoffelees and Jemima (my two favorite characters of course). To be honest, I'm not satisfied with this design, but it's was a start.
Here is a reversed application of this makeup:
During this makeup application I was video chatting with other CATS fans who were also doing makeup applications. It's so great when others share your weird hobby!
Just the day before I was in Mammoth Mountains, enjoying the...sun. (It's been too hot and dry this year in California.) I don't ski but Jim's family does and I've been going with them every March to Mammoth basically to hang out. It's really fun. One year it fell on St. Patrick's Day I believe and last year it was during Easter. In fact, last year, there was a 3.8 earthquake by Mammoth Lakes, the very Friday night Jim and I got there.
I hope you all have a great St. Patrick's Day. I hope my SoCal buddies are all alright. In addition to Irish beer, I might pick up an earthquake survival kit today...
I need to work on my self photo taking skills. (toes cut off, too much head room, camera remote on the ground) I'm getting there!
Just hanging out with my favorite Pixar character. Cute retainer, Mike.
My engagement ring! You can read more about it here.
I don't know if I ever told you about the story of my key necklace. Here's the short version. I bought the key in Paris, France. It goes to a padlock that is now on a bridge over the Seine River next to the Cathédrale Notre Dame. Written in Sharpie on the lock is date I was there, and "Jenny & Jim" (He was not with me in France). Jim now has the other key. Boom. Romance. Did it.
Halloween 2010 was the Halloween I wore 3 different costumes. During the work day I was Hermione in an updated version of the costume I wore for the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire five years ago. I've since improved the costume even more but have yet to take those photos.
