MAC Collection: Venomous Vilians

Time for another MAC collection and collaboration, this time with Disney. In stores around Halloween time in the UK (and right now in the US I believe), the Venomous Vilians collection celebrates some of the most notorious and iconic baddies from Disney films. Vilians who now can boast their own make up range include Sleeping Beauty's arch nemisis Maleficent, the stylin' Evil Queen from Snow White, Cruella De Vil and the most recent vilian, Dr Facilier (some dude from The Princess and the Frog).
Now, whilst all these are fabulous vilians (I can't comment on Dr Facilier as I haven't seen the film yet), my first hope when I heard of the collection was that there would be an Ursula range! For some reason she is my favourite Disney vilian and although she's not such a looker as, say, the Evil Queen, the scene where she pops open a little fish thing and uses it as a lipstick always bounces round my head whenever I apply a femme fatal shade of red. MAC, you missed a trick!
(I mean, come on - look at her bitchin' 80s make up!)
Anyway, I look forward to the collection hitting the shops and will be sure to pop by a MAC store for a peek at the products and their ~wicked~ packaging.

PS. Kudos to MAC for embracing Halloween! So few UK companies bother...

Shoegazer Wordsearch: Peacock

Wordsearch posts are where I will pick a word as a theme, search high and low on the internet for related goodies and then present you with the cream of the crop from my findings, here on this blog. I will try and cover jewellery, homeware, clothing, accessories etc based on or related to the chosen word in some way. Got that? I hope so! Please feel free to suggest themes and words for future Wordsearch posts and I'll do my best to rise to the challenge! This week I've stuck to using Etsy for the finds ...

Some days I want red hair...

Today I happened across this little stop frame animation film featuring Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy and written and directed by Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths. I love stop frame and just thought I'd share this video with you...

It just so happens I was planning to do a post about some beautiful headbands from, modelled by Alison Sudol. Small world!
I love the dark green of the background which makes her hair colour really pop. And how pretty are those headbands? They seem like things you might find in an old trunk in a forgotten corner of your Grandma's attic.... (if life was exciting like that.)
