Mermaid fashion appreciation post!
Been getting myself inspired for my mermaid themed burlesque act that’s happening in February as part of Super Happy Funtime Burlesque’s Love Show. (February 22 in Grand Rapids, MI; February 23 in Traverse City, MI)
This is all I want to be

I will always reblog this
Having problems finding a lipstick color for your cosplay? Look no further. I just found someone’s video tutorial on how to make lipsticks out of crayons. In the video she says that she found out that all of her favourite lipsticks had lead and that she found out that she could make lipstick out of lead free crayons. The entire time I was watching this video, I thought that it would work amazingly for someone looking for some cerulean blue lipstick for Vriska or Jade green lipstick for Kanaya or maybe some other cosplay character who has a weird lipstick color. In the video she also says that you could mix crayon colors to make weird colors.
I don’t even wear lipstick ever, but learning you can make it out of crayons now got me all excited to try it. o-o
What an awesome tutorial and idea! Also helpful for folks I know who are always looking for that right shade of red and can never find it!
EDIT: This wouldn’t be nut free though, I think as shae butter is derived from a nut? Would cocoa butter be a decent alternative for folks who have to avoid nuts? make up people opinions???
If I can make my own lipstick… I WILL HAVE ALL THE COLORS.
I wonder if I could convince the RealHusband to draw lots of tiny bats around my eyes …
