My nails.. the sequel.. and other stuff.. I don't know.. I ramble..

Greetings.. ^^

So I've still been using the Sally Hansen stuff. so this is my nails after one week of use. I didn't expect them to be fantastic. I do work alot with my hands and they slinter at the tip alot.

So they don't look fantastic just yet. But hopefully we'll get there. :)

Box one of two arrived from England a couple of days ago. It was brimming with crin! Lots of crin! And this is only half of what I ordered. It's like a box of live snakes. I love how crin almost looks alive when its in motion. :)

Going to be making lots of fasinators this weekend since racing season, here in Australia, starts around the end of Sept and I'm hoping if I can get in early, people will design outfits around them rather than finding a hair piece to match. I don't hold much hope. I know my designs aren't very creative or very good. I kind of just do whatever pops into my head instead of making designs and planning.. I just unholster my hot glue gun and give myself third degree burns on my finger :P

Anyways.. I'm off to bed.

Just random stuff

So here's some photos...

 This is my housemate Sarah.. I did a trial run of her Halloween make up on Sunday.. I used Manic Panic goth white foundation with a light dusting of Pure White eyeshadow.. For her face framing and eyes I used Posh Peacock eyeshadow done over with a light dusting of Jet Black eyeshadow.. All the shadows are by Rimmel We're trying to go for a look of Emily the corpse bride.. I'm making her a black rose head garland and we'll do her hair in a fancy bridal fashion..

I've started to use nail hardener because I'm sick of my dodgy blunt and slintered nails.. I'm using Sally Hansen Triple Strong Advanced Gel Nail Fortifier.. This was taken on Day One after two coats... I'll take a photo next Wednesday and see how we're doing..

In the rest of my life.. Well, my job has been ok, though my feet have been killing me at the end of the day.. Waiting on a shipment of crin from Cyberlox Shop.. And I spent quite a few $$ on lots of pretty new panties.. When they arrive I'll be rating the sites I bought from.. I already got $10 off from because when I first tried, it wasnt letting me add anything to my cart and they emailed me a $10 voucher.. :P

Anywho.. I'm rambling..

My first experience of MAC

As of today, Target sells MAC products.. Not the whole range just yet but we've got some nice stuff..

I put $97 worth on layby (some eye shadows and an eyeliner) and I spent another $90 on some lipsticks, another eyeliner and the studio fix powder plus foundation

I have to say that the lipstick is really creamy. Nothing like any of the other lipsticks I've ever used. I got Rebel and MAC Red shades. I quite like them but my application skills are lacking a bit..

 MAC Red

Worst photos ever but its all I could be bothered with at the end of my day.

Sometime soon I'll be doing a trial run of some corpse bride makeup on my housemate Sarah for Halloween. ^^ hopefully she'll let me put photos up :P

Thanks for reading. :)

'These are a few of my favourite things'

Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright coloured dread falls and goth stylin mittens,
White plastic packages all full of new rings,
These are a few of my favourite things,

Red coloured hair bows and cute little poodles,
Lipsticks and blushes and oodles of eyeballs,
Tight corsets that shine with the joy that they bring,
These are a few of my favourite things,

Goths in bright dresses with hair falls that clashes,
Make up and lashes that have neon splashes, 
Piercings and tattoos and body-mod blings,
These are a few of my favourite things

You get the hint, I'm hoping at least.

Miss JamJam hair bows rock my little world. I'm a bit of an eyeball freak. Can deal with real eyeballs but I fucking LOVE these. I wear them to work most days ^^

Granted I love hair bows, head bands, hair colour and hair falls in general. I love hair falls above anything else. Mainly because my hair is so thin and gets so icky so quick. Hair falls with me the best volume, that makes me smile.

I love these ones I got for $1 (plus postage) off Ebay. I just happened to be the only person who bid. FTW!
with Miss Vivi 

And these Vixen falls cost me a bit. They were my first ones and I may have screwed up the elastic a bit (ok a lot).

And Cyberlox. I loooooove Cyberlox. My favourite ones are ones I make myself. The best supplier in the world is CyberloxShop on Ebay. They have 138 different colours of tubular crin, plus premade dreads, premade cyberlox and foam falls, goggles, clip in hair extenstions, clip in hand dyed human hair fringes, wool roving (the stage wool is at before it becomes wool dreads, felt etc), Kanekalon synthetic hair and tons of other stuff. It's a little expensive compared to other stores online for the paying price but once you factor in postage (they do free combined postage on bags of crin), its better than 90% of the other stores. 
Aaaaagh!!! Cyberlox craziness!

I know I've been really lazy this last few weeks. I have barely had the urge to do anything crafty. But I have a few costume parties to go to in the next few months which means its time to break out the sewing machine, hot glue gun and measuring tape. Viv's 21st birthday with a Sci Fi theme, our house is doing a massive Halloween party which I still only have no idea what I'm going to go as, I've got Bunny's wedding in October, which means a 'unofficial bridesmaid' dress I need to make (also which I am terrified of screwing up), a circus theme party sometime in summer and I have the most unbelievable urge to have a glam goth themed cocktail party.

So in the next few weeks I'll be attempting to make a stick on/head piece metal look cyborg scope style face detail. Chrome up some Nerf guns and make a couple of holsters, big boots, bullet belts and black corset etc.
I need to get a rockabilly outfit together for Bunny's Hen's night next month too. I like Inspired Insanity. They have larger sizes and a nice range. I'm getting a cute retro style dress for Marinda's wedding in February.
I'm assuming I'll be doing my regular zombie look for Halloween. Since The Walking Dead  season one DVD came out, I've learnt how to use gelatine to make flesh wounds. This, of course, makes my costume ideas a little narrower because I like to use new skills. I'll think of something, I'm sure.
I want a really classy cocktail party. I may have gotten the idea from Dani though. I want to get these glasses. Can you just imagine the absinthe cocktails in those????

I was considering buying the Carnival Queen set from Lovechild Boudoir for it. Its got a classy yet skanky quality to it. Sounds just like me. ^^

Anyhoo.. I've been writing and linking for too long and my fingers hurt.
