Tonight is Christmas crafting at TeeBee 's daycare.
The kids at his daycare are so funny! One girl, 5 years, always comes up to me with a smile and says I'm scary. But then she also say I'm so pretty! Can't beat that - scary and pretty! A Goths dream.
Another girl always wants me to show my fangs, and 2 girls apparently watch my YouTube videos constantly.
Last week the daycare teachers told me the kids (girls) even play that they are me and Fairlight!
Apparently they drink tea and makes cupcakes. They totally nailed my life!
Some kids grow up hating Christmas, mainly because they have a Goth mum who force them to do over cute crafting all the time.
I dragged them to a Red Cross second hand store where we picked up different things to make. One thing we thought out was button hearts. The kids picked out a few packs each for the cost of 5 SEK( about $0,7?). Fairlight did the one on top, with the bigger buttons, and Synthia the one with smaller.
Yesterday was button heart making.
buttons in various sizes and models
Fairlight 's buttons were bigger so she threaded the steel wire directly through each button, made it to the shape of a heart, I tied the organza ribbon as a bow - and ta -daa it made a perfect Christmas ornament.
Synthia 's buttons were so small so she had to thread the buttons through a 4 mm organza ribbon first (organza ribbon instead of ordinary thread makes the buttons stay put) and then she wrapped it around the steel wire and made it to a heart.
Cheap, fun - and most important: pretty! I hate having kids crafting on public display when it's ugly, so I simply only craft pretty things with them. And they will probably thank me later in life when they actually will be able to use all their handmade things without puking!
And still they had fun making it.
See, not only ugly things are fun to make!

To maintain this fanciful exterior I have devoted my life to I need to do some sacrifices once a week.
One sacrifice makes me say; "Ouch! For the love of...!", "Man, that hurts!" and "Aargggh!!!".
That's my Saturday Sacrifice: The
But this was an impulse. I just couldn't stop! At first the eyebrows swirl made me look so angry. What to do? I couldn't remove what I did without ruining the make up, so I just had to keep it going until it looked ok.
Think it's too many pictures of me? Mo-ha-ha-haaa, I'm not done yet!

It's almost done! My first ever plastic fake tree! I think it looks cute< 3
It's not so "me", I'm more of an old fashion girl myself. A Swedish Christmas tree is one of the most beautiful things there is to me. But since I've lived through so many christmases during my vampire life I think it was time to go for something different. So far I'm a fan. The red Christmas decorations are better for randomly squirts of blood (you might just happen to put a knife into Santa's big,inviting belly).

For the first time in history I will have a fake tree. Horrible, I know, but I got it super cheap! This deluxe version costs about $100 and I got it for $14!
I'm famous amongst my friends for being a remarkable sales finder (or a real cheap bastard).
Sure I will miss the smell, and the constant watering as well as all stitches I get to decorate the damn thing and not to mention all the "brarr" (?) that you step on all the way to next summer, but I just might find joy in this one too.
I've got lights and decorating left as you can see.
Will the kids join in?
Hahaha - hell no! This is my fun. Mine, ONLY mine! *said with a dark and scary voice*
My tradition have always been to decorate the tree, and I will never let anyone take it away from me.
The kids are "allowed" to hang the plastic ornaments, but the old glass ones I've got from grandma noone touches!
Me and the kids just made a HUGE batch of gingerbread dough.
It smells delicious here now.
I use the recipe from Johan Sörbergs book "Riddarbageriets Bästa". It will now be put in the refrigerator for at least a week to let the flavors develop, well, all of it except the parts we are going to eat right now;)
Wow, it is just SO good! I've been using this recipe for 4 or 5 years now and I love it.
Now it's dough time!
The Grinch in me are starting to break out.
Green eye shadow over the whole eyelids all the way up to my "eyebrows ".
Then I added one of my fav dots - the white ones. I think it makes me look like Bambi.
I use Kryolan liquid foundation TV white for that. I dip the end (the opposite end of the brush) into the bottle and then use that side to get equal dots.
In October this year I did one of my most celebrated TV performances in mankind history.
You see, people rely on my good sense of style to know what's okay to wear.
Of course I like to help as much as I can to help preventing style failures.
And if you keep watching you'll see what I think about the color...

This is what happened today.
Priority is always foundation and powder for me, so quickly on with Boots no 7 (an anti wrinkle serum) and then on with the Kryolan TV white 2 foundation using a foundation brush.
I swear to God that brush saves me like 6 minutes every morning! Get one!
IsAdora (well, IsaDora really but 9someone told me it should be IsAdora instead).
Rouge and the rouge as eyeshadow as well.
2 black lines at the end of each eye, and 2 dots for eyebrows. Mascara.
And a fast version of lipstick (like on one of my videos).
Dab some thin layer of vaseline on eyelids and under the eye, put some glitter on.
Puh - now you have a 6 minutes make up that looks like s 12 minute one ;)

This years theme is white and baby pink pastel Christmas (it's been decided since 2 years ago).

Pulled my usual stunts, then drew a few lines, added some dots (my perfectly round dots are made by H&M dipliner. The point is usually too hard when you buy it so I press it hard against a hard surface - like my heart, a few times to make it softer).
I then use a small amount of vaseline on a brush and paint on the place I want to add glitter to, then dip another brush to paint the glitter on. Of course you can use a primer instead but I think it dries too fast and won't hold as much glitter.

It's been HELL to get the materials I need BUT if nothing else wants to bite me in my ass, it might actually go into production later this week! Dare I hope?
I did a power make up just to increase my chances! I will add my loooong Kryolan lashes before arrival, but since I'll be in a car the next 3 hours, probably asleep as well, there is no use having them on already.
My tummy is excited and I have waited a looong time for this.
"-It's time to go!!! The karaoke taxi's arrived!"

I cut TeeBee's hair and the plan was to color leopard spots, but since lack of time I had to spray paint it for this evenings party at my dad and extra mums house tonight. It's where I'm at now. Will arrive 30 minuters too late though....sorry...
Totally my fault since I attended half a hat course this morning and was bit late home .
Okay, so I'll just stay longer instead ;)
I miss them so! They only live 1 hour away but still we don't get to meet that often :(

...or I'm just loosing touch....
I will make some candy now, and I hope to have the time to be able to finish a video I did in June or something... wanna be my assistant? I'd love to have like 50 cute alternative people moving in with me to help me out, and to make me laugh all days. WHY you people live so far away? Today I'm really missing all the people I know in Germany and London (You know who you are). I'd just make you cupcakes and we will do eachothers hair all day long -pure heaven!

Went with poison eyebrows today.
They are so much faster to draw then the black ones that's got no room for errors when you are in a hurry.
The green ones (and other colors too for that matter ) is not so delicate, and if they go bit wrong you can always correct them. If you correct black ones you might end up with a unibraw.
I simply use a slim aquarelle brush, dip it in water and blend it in my Make Up Store green Cyber Shadow Extreme. This works with almost all shadows and blushes.
The color won't be as liquid as cake liner and CEL sealer together so it'd more difficult to paint swirls and stuff this way - but it can totally be done.
Tomorrow I'll do a Friday swirl make up using that technique so you'll see.
Hell - let's make this your BatBrat assignment! To use a color shadow as brow or painting on your face. Send links! Kisses

I have a small plastic Count Dracula in a necklace, and he starts to play a "scary" song when you push him...well, last night he started playing without anyone being near him - in the middle of the night *ihhhh* - several times!!!
But just now my talking beer opener (now it seems like I drink beer all of the time - I'm no beer person, but I use beer in food and baking bread sometimes *okay, we get it, you only drink beer when you HAVE to and nothing else is available*) started to talk!
"-Oh, YEAH!!! Time for a beer!" it says. Like 10 times in a row now...
I used a slightly bigger brush today since my thin brush is a total mess and I need to order a new one.
Since I use the Kryolan cake eye liner together with my Kryolan CEL sealer it is important what brush you have. Synthetic hairs can't carry as much water and color as real hair, and that makes it difficult to draw my swirls otherwise since the color won't last all the way.

At the same time as Alphaville, Depeche Mode and Nitzer Ebb were trying their best to kill my Ferguson speakers there was another bidder for my ears love: Front 242.
I felt so sad that they had cut off that supercute synth-hair.
Classic swedish synth hairdo (apart from the sideburns).
I have been a tired Adora lately and missed out on my duty's as a respectful blogger. I just put a needle in my hand to make me snap out of it - and hell, it might just have worked! I stood up straight, gazed to the sun and declared "never more". So, yes, there will be a Music Monday today! And also: today's make up.
Sunday, November 13, 2011
Even though I was going to an adventure bath today I see no reason not to have pretty make up, at least to begin with...and I figure since I wear so much make up it will only look like a normal Goth day of my life even if it smudges.
After beeing drenched by TeeBee like 45 times, got under the water several times and been splashed on 62 times the make up still were perfect! I'm in shock! Kryolan foundation and IsaDora powder really stood the test today!
And oh yeah -I have the Senior Goth body of the year as you can tell :)
And the fiercest swim wear in the Goth history. Uhhm , perhaps not..

Contrary to what my family seems to think I am not the reincarnation of swim art princess Esther W.
Okay,so I have probably seen all her movies but that doesn't make me wanna dip my toes in water below 30 degrees Celsius more often.
But once again the pale Goth of the family got voted down and is forced to put on a fake happy smile and travel by car 1 hour to go to a water park (Kaskad in Tingsryd) and laugh in pain as the make up slowly gets ruined and the fun breaks through my wall of cynicism and what a horror - I might just have fun for real!
I will never get my mopy goth respect back if anyone sees this.
Good thing I paint my eyebrows "angry", this way it will look as if I'm laughing with an evil grin. "-Mo ha ha haaa!

TeeBee s final 5'the Birthday party is over. The 3d Halloween party he had!
I borrowed the kids catwoman mask and tried to do a Michelle. We'll, she did it better, but I think I did it okay.
I have licked all of the cream of the cake and will now lick myself on my secret place (behind my ear). Mmmiauu...
