Shilo (Repo The Genetic Opera) - Halloween 2016

Six years ago I dressed up as Shilo from Repo! The Genetic Opera for Halloween. It was her ending song outfit, covered in blood, I was just missing the gun. This year for Halloween I'm dressed as Shilo yet again in her opening number outfit, from the song 21st Century Cure.  I had been saving items from way wardrobe to put this together for years and forgot all about it. When I moved I found it all and now I’ve finally finished it. Here are some more photos and a video of how I made it at the bottom of the post.

This is art. This is how I could make music. This is avoiding getting in front of a camera. This is an excuse to re-live old videos. This is probably pretentious crap. This is a satire about creating art. This is only 31 seconds.

The Problem with Travel Vlogs & Daily Vlogs

I'm not someone who can make great videos and enjoy time with friends and family at the same time. Too much context switching. Let me know in the comments your feelings on the topic. As always, thanks for watching and subscribing. If you missed it, my Sweden travel video is here.

A Montage of Our Sweden Trip

This year my husband and I went to Sweden, one of my favorite places in the world. I put together a short travel montage for those interested. As I say in the video, I will be writing about our trip and posting photos here soon. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

Blind Mag - Repo! The Genetic Opera

This makeup was half awesome and half fail. I've photoshopped eyeballs on my nails (my idea of using hardboiled eggs was the biggest fail of this) and I've of course messed with the brightness and contrast. If you'd like to see me apply this makeup (and slowly lose my mind singing and such) the video is below. Thanks for watching, let me know in the comments what you're dressing up for this Halloween!

Jadzia Dax Makeup - Star Trek (Deep Space 9)

Back in June, I attended a local fundraising event for a new theater my city is planning on building. It was an outdoor concert and mini-convention called Naptown Nerd Fest. They encouraged costumes so I quickly threw this together. It's Jadzia Dax from Star Trek Deep Space 9. I just drew on her Trill spots and made a quick communicator pin. I wore dress sort of in her uniform colors and gray leopard print tights. I've done her makeup before but this is the first time since watching the whole series. (It's my favorite Star Trek series!)
