Happy Haunts!

Hi Friends!

The spookiest time of year is just around the corner! The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air and we are all digging out our snuggly jumpers and coats!

Halloween sees the release of lots of awesome accessory, clothing and homewear collections so I’m helping you guys out with a round up of some of my faves from this year!

Black Heart Creatives

It’s no secret that this is one of my favourite jewellery brands. This year Charlotte has truly outdone herself with her amazing Halloween collection! I had to stop myself from buying everything!!

Here are a few of my faves from the collection that dropped today

You can buy this collection here but be quick as I expect this will sell out very quickly!!

ASOS Curve

ASOS Curve release a few Halloween items each year, this year the pickings are slim at the moment but hopefully more will be released in the coming weeks!

So far you can buy the following

ASOS Curve items are available here and again, I don’t think they have unlimited stock so it may be worth looking as soon as you can!

Shop Disney UK

I love this time of year at Disney as the villains get their chance to shine! Shop Disney has plenty of Halloween Merch this year, I have picked just a few of my fave things

You can find all the shop Disney Halloween goodies here – my selection has only scraped the surface of what they have on sale l, go check it out for yourself!

EMP

A quick search for ‘Villains’ or ‘Halloween’ will find you some awesome bits on EMP although I’m not entirely sure it’s only limited to this time of year. I thought I’d include a few of my fave bits anyway!!

I hope you like the items that I have found for the spooky season!

What’s your fave Halloween find this year?

Lots of love

Disney Villains – The Horoscope Collection

Hi Friends,

I have been thinking for some time about making a collection of artwork based around a theme. Villains are obviously my favourite of all Disney characters and with it coming up to Halloween the majority of my inspiration ideas centred around villains.

After much deliberation and doodling I decided to do a series of Disney Villains as Horoscopes, not only did I want to depict them in the specific style of the Horoscope signs but I also wanted the ‘negative’ traits of that sign to be representative of the villain that I chose … quite the task I set myself!

The idea behind this Collection is that all of the designs will eventually be added together to create a fabric that will be used to make bespoke border skirts with the entire Horoscope represented and obviously 12 villainous favourites. I will be releasing a character per month in line with the star signs changing, which means that the final design will be August – September 2019 just in time for me to get the fabric made for next Halloween! (didn’t I plan that well)

So, who is the first design you my be asking?

September 23 – October 22 = Libra

Libra negative traits include; Impatient, indecisive, insensitive, complainer, manipulative, Co-dependent, self-indulgent, Gossipy, Fragile, Selfish and Sulky

To me, these traits perfectly represent Yzma

Yzma is shown with her arms in a scale like position to represent the Libra scales with Kronk’s good and bad conscious on each hand for balance.

I have made this design available on my Redbubble on a variety of items, I will shortly have prints available too.

This particular design works well as a standalone and during consultation a lot of non-Libyans asked for me to make it available on its own without the Horoscope so you can purchase Yzma without her Horoscope branding on products here and she looks like this

The next design will be released mid October, I really hope you like this idea and enjoy this series, I have put a lot of heart into this.

Thanks in advance for being supportive as always

With love

Alyssa xx

Disney Halloween Twitter Gift Exchange

A few weeks ago I saw a tweet from the lovely @kindnesscourage asking if anyone wished to be added to the #DisneyhalloweenGE and I couldn’t resist the urge to get involved as I do like to send a surprise gift! 

Full details of the Halloween gift exchange were shared on Hannah’s blog here but in summary you provided details of your fave Disney characters and films and were added to a list. When purchasing, you had a budget of £10 to create a gift box for a name you would be given on the 2nd October along with details of their fave characters etc. 

We knew that the deadline for posting the boxes was Friday 13th October but as I was away for a week from that date I was excited to get my gift when I returned from holiday! I wasn’t disappointed! 

Upon arriving home today I received this gorgeous package 


From the very lovely @laurenroseh on Twitter! I cannot thank Lauren enough for my beautiful gift. 

I stated that Alice in Wonderland and Ursula were my faves and she bought be a stunning pen and awesome villain socks to cover that. I also got a gorgeous mickey purse and yummy chocolate pumpkin lolly!  

I am so happy and glad I took part in the exchange! Please take a look at the #disneyhalloweenGE to see other gifts sent and received. 

I also encourage you to follow @kindnesscourage on Twitter and her awesome blog for lovely Disney content and fun events like this exchange. 

Do you think the exchange is something you might choose to take part in next year? 

Thank Alyssa xx

January Disney Wish List 

January is the poorest of months for most people who celebrate Christmas. Obviously, this means that it’s also the month I am most likely to find everything I want, but can’t afford! 

So here is what I am lusting after at the moment … Disney Style! 


Star Wars Storm Trooper Purse – The Disney Store £9.99 in the sale! 


MUPPETS Haunted Mansion style print –  Redbubble 


Minnie Mouse Jammies – ASOS curve 


Ursula Phone Case – Redbubble 
Villains Phone Case – Redbubble 


Spaceship Earth Dress – Kawiianpizzaapparel On Etsy 


Alice in Wonderland Door Knob – Propsculptor on Etsy 


Alice Fabric – Frumble 


Ursula Inspired Stack Rings – thefinejewelleryco

I’ve stuck to items available in the UK as I keep getting stung with customs charges when I shop abroad! 

It may be a bit Alice and Ursula heavy, but let’s face it – it was always going to be! Haha! 

What are you lusting after at the moment?

Lots of Love

As you probably know by now, I have an Etsy store which you can find here

I’ve started adding some more items to my store including custom Disney ears, hand painted shoes, cushion covers and scarves. 

The newest editions are the custom Disney ears and they’ve proved to be pretty popular so far which is super exciting! I have videos of both my Sleeping Beauty and Snow White bespoke ears available to view – just click the name you want to see!   

To order your own pair you just need to buy using the custom design listing on my Etsy (this secures your place in the queue of orders) then I will contact you to get to work on your design. 

I also have two options for painted shoes! For custom painted children’s shoes, select the children’s option. For adult custom painted shoes, select the adult option. Again, purchasing secures your place in the queue, once you have paid I will contact you with design ideas! 

   
I also have some super sparkly custom crystal shoes! I wore mine at DLP and they got a lot of attention as they are so glittery!! You can buy yours here – this price includes the shoes!! 

  
That’s a quick look around what’s available on my Etsy store! I hope you see something you like 

Lots of love
