R.I.P Vampira (Maila Nurmi)

I was very saddened to hear the news that Vampira (Maila Nurmi) passed way on the Tenth of January this year. She was defiantly one of my favorite personalities of all time. Her name will forever be remembered in my house. I think in her honor I am going to set up a movie fest of movies she was in. For more information on Vampira and her death check out here. Feel free to share and spread the flyer I made just please host it on your own. It's just polite.

On a happier note. The make-up I ordered for myself arrived and I am in love with it. It is a new brand called Coffin Color. It is natural, mineral eyeshadows that are hand blended by two awesome horror-rock-lovin' babes - Melissa and Xiane - in their "dark secret labs 50,000 feet underground." I am in love with the colors with such ghoulishly fun names as Gangrene, Gold Toof, Tombstone, Poison Purple and many more. It is very affordable as well which makes me happy and from trying it out the past couple days has some real staying power. Very happy to be supporting a diy, independent company. I am actually about to order the sample pack (which what I have pictured and what I purchased) for a good friend of mine, Abby. I am hoping she'll love it as much as I.

January was always a weird month

I guess that its bound to be since it is named after a god with two faces. First I have to say that I am writing this as I listen to
Richard Cheese's
cover of Gin and Juice. You should check it out if you haven't ever heard it and tune into it if you have simply because its awesome.

I started a myspace page for my pin up. Not to to much there yet but its all work safe as I don't do nudes.

I am currently in the middle of making a penis pinata for my friend Sara's bachelorette party tonight. I still need to make cupcakes and figure out what to wear. The pinata has been fun to make though. My friend Tiffany helped me for a bit last night.I am also making cupcakes for the party tonight which I am hosting though not at my home but at my friend Leah's. My friend Tina has helped me contract a stripper and I am hoping that everything will go well since I am planning this party from an hour and half from where I am currently having never done a bachelorette party or really anything involving a stripper so I am just hoping that I have enough set up to entertain everyone and that they all have a good time.

I am still in Virginia visiting Nathan. Its been a good break though a bit rough at times. Nathan got held up at gun point at work the other day. Needless to say I was not happy about that. I think that was the roughest patch everything else has been really peachy-keen. I have been working on some monster hats for my friend Merideth's nieces and nephew. The one I have a photo of right now I call razz-berry. I'll post the others soon.

I got an new apartment in Tennessee with my friend Jen. I am really excited to get back so I can really start unpacking and getting settled.

Well back to cupcake and pinata-ing. <3 hope everyone has been awesome.

In Case You've forgotten how to make a pinata

2 cups flour
1 cup water
(or 2 parts flour to one part water)
salt to keep the paste from molding
mix till pasty and smooth

rip newspaper into strips and pieces
build a form from cardboard, balloons, and/or poster board (be sure to leave an opening for things to get placed into you pinata)
dip a strip of paper in paste and squeegie off excess with your fingers
apply and continue till the whole form is covered.
let dry.

(note: I like to let the pinata dry in between layers to make sure that it is fully dry.)
