I did just buy the new Danko Jones Album which is rocking me out so hard I can barely type.
Anyway, I have had all these plans to start a My Pretty Zombie Cosmetic line. Because I have a huge problem with make up. And shoes. I love eyeshadow almost as much as I love zombies so I figured I could combine the two. Here's a photo at my attempt at making lipstick:
Before you laugh too hard...I'm blaming this on my crap arm...C'mon I can pour pee all day and hardly ever get any on me.
The Lipstick didn't turn out so great color wise. Looks fabulous in the tube, but once you put it on, its almost colorless. The girls at work and my sister loved it though. The consistency and the smell are fabulous so the next batch will be clear with multi colored glitter. You can use it as a top coat for that super hot "it looks like I'm drooling" effect.
After this disastrous mess that Paul mostly cleaned up, I decided to put off the eyeshadow thing until he was out of town. Yesterday I dragged out all the crap and these are a few of the colors I came up with:
These are 8 of them. I made 12. I'm thinking I'll sell them in sets of 3. They're all named after My Pretty Zombie Dolls.
Luckily I have some VERY nice friends who have volunteered to be my test subjects so I don't have to chase the dogs around shoving this crap in their eyes. After I get their feedback, I'll have some up in my shop!
Other stuff I've been working on that will be listed in the next week: A new slutty nurse and stewardess zombies. Also the diorama that Paul and I have been collaborating on. It's the grossest Zombie I've ever done and I'm super excited to get it listed. It's all done except for final gluing and bloody-ing up. maybe tomorrow? Here's a sneak peek:
So now you know.
Today I'm listing gift certifcates and girly tees if I can make it through without my computer crashing. I'm about to throw it through a window for reals.
I'll keep you posted on the eyeshadow reviews. Can hardly wait...going to tart myself up right now! Yay!

Mitzi After: I want to add that I went to the True Value and picked out all these screws, clamps and bolts BY MYSELF!
I love vintage dresser caddies and that was part of my inspiration for this piece. Although Paul thinks the drawer is too small for a wallet, you could totally put your change and watch in it. Or any unmentionables that you don't want your mom to see.
And I just put my iphone in it and it totally fits!

1. Sorry about the comment moderation. I know it sucks and is totally lame, but some jackass keeps posting links to Japanese porn sites on here and its pissing me off to no end. Not that I have anything against porn, Japanese or otherwise, but this is not the time or the place for it.
So I apologize to the rest of you who have real comments to make.
2. My arm is all jacked up still. I've been taken out of work by my doctor and now have nothing better to do but watch the Trailer Park Boys (we bought the box set, both movies, and the Christmas special), anything on the murder channel and my new fave local horror show Creepy Kofy Movie Time. If you live in the SF area, check it out. Its some kind of awesomeness Saturday nights at midnight on local channel 20. Reminds me of the good old days of watching Creature Features with my dad as a kid.
3. Working on some new dioramas and Barbie stuff. Luckily for me, I can paint zombies with mostly my left hand and its one of the few things that doesn't hurt me. Unlike driving, but that shit has always sucked IMO. Paul has been helping out tremendously with everything and has even taken an interest in building the dioramas with me. He's all about installing lights and power in these weird containers I keep bringing home so keep a look out for some of this new coolness I should be listing soon.
Sneaky peek at the newest diorama I'll be listing on etsy tomorrow. Her name is Mitzi. This is a little more on the functional side of dioramas as she has a fancy ass drawer you can store all your crap in. And a light.
So that's it for now. Gotta keep my typing to a minimum.
Happy Mothers Day to all of you with kids evil and otherwise.
Happy Mothers Day to my own Evil mom who is the best one anyone could ever have and I owe my love of all things creepy to. No one is more supportive of me and loves Zombie dolls with dangling eyeballs more than her. I love you, Mom! Even though you wouldn't let me get you an iphone to keep track of your ebay because it was too expensive. You're the greatest!
