For Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland, I decided to pay tribute to my favorite Disney Legend by designing my costume after one of his original changing portraits. Unfortunately, this design was removed in the 2005 refurbishment, but never forget!

You can also see the original concept design at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco at their Marc Davis exhibit until November 3rd. I will warn you, the exhibit is very small. However, it features Marc’s most famous leading ladies and femme fatales.

[Recap][Cosmetics][Places] I Could Have Done Separate Posts But Shut Up

And I’m back! I guess my physical vacation became an internet vacation as well. I’m sad to report that I didn’t experience any hauntings or spooky happenings aboard the Queen Mary upon my stay. Though I say that with disappointment now, if something supernatural had happened, I’d be reacting with sheer terror and absolutely no excitement.

Spooky, Scary!

But enough about awesome and old British ships! Let’s talk Disney.

E.l.f Cosmetics released their Disney Villains Collection exclusively at Walgreen’s recently, and I am fully confident in telling you all that it’s more than worth the $10 for a palette look-book set! I have three of the four (Maleficent, Evil Queen and Ursula… sorry, Cruella), and my favorite thing about the shades is that they’re not too costume-like. I don’t feel like an actual cartoon character when I wear them, but instead like a sophisticated and sultry adult. Well done! And the primer is the best I’ve used since Urban Decay’s! I’m not even exaggerating!

And on the topic of Disney, I leave you with a picture I recently took there with my friend and co-writer on [meepzine],  Peter Girard. I would like to note that I am wearing poison apple Mickey ears that were of a 400 limited quantity from Disneyland’s Friday the 13th celebration. Just sayin’!

Me and my friend Peter at Disneyland. I'm actually thrilled, I promise.

[Fashion] Haunted Mansion Inspired Dooney & Bourke Purse

Haunted Mansion inspired Dooney & Bourke bag

 

Uh, so this exists. And it will be available at Disneyland Resort locations starting September 13th (which is a Friday. Can this be any more amazing?!) according to the Disney Parks Blog. I have never had any desire to own a Dooney & Bourke bag, but this creation is absolutely consuming me with desire. I need this in my life. And it’s like a sign from the happy haunts themselves making it available to purchase the week I will be at Disneyland. Meant to be, forever, even after death. Bury me with it, I say!
