I made a pilgrimage to the synthetic cinnamon-scented craft mecca, Michael’s, for some supplies for an upcoming YA horror book display (think bloody, but with glitter because I can’t help myself). Of course, I was totally susceptible to temptation. I had to pick up some Halloween-y type stuff for myself because Halloween is the best holiday and Michael’s is all full of glittery spiders and cats and skulls this time of year. I actually gave myself a day off for Halloween this year because it is SO GOOD IN EVERY WAY. Anyhoo, I found some pretty rad Day of the Dead-y stuff, including a papier mache skull (we also found a bunch of Halloween candy, we ate right out of the bag, until I was so over-sugared that I announced I was going to slap everyone in the mouth). I was just planning to coat it in pink glitter (which is admittedly my plan for anything), but once I got home, I decided this needed the sugar skull treatment.
I borrowed Tim’s paint markers and a fine point Sharpie and went to town. While I made this sucker, we had a solid viewing of Hocus Pocus (crazy Sarah Jessica Parker realness) and The Craft (crazy Fairuza Balk realness)(Also, did you know Robin Tunney was wearing a wig this WHOLE MOVIE? Her hairline was driving me NUTS. Turns out, it hadn’t grown in since she taped Empire Records).
I’m really tangent-y today.
I have a headache and my eye is twitching. I gotta go.
