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

Plus size Disney – All my outfits from my last trip.

Hello Friends!

I am often asked about my outfits both when and I am in the parks and when I get back and post photos. So, I thought it might be a good idea to share my Disney trip wardrobe rundowns in a blog when I get back. (Sorry this one is excessively late)

We arrived on the Friday lunchtime and didn’t actually go into the parks until the evening event. The event we were attending was the Hollywood Tower of Terror 10th anniversary party which was specifically for Annual Passholders. When it was announced that we could attend in 1930s fancy dress, I couldn’t resist! I made myself an off the shoulder floor length navy sequin gown and Mark wore a dinner suit with a mickey bow tie and cummerbund. (A full review of the night is in an earlier blog post)

Saturday was my Pirates day! I knew that the Pirates and Princess season was starting this weekend and decided to support the pirates team with my outfit this day! I made this dress and ears with pirate themed fabric I purchased on eBay

With my pirate (close up of ears)

Easter Sunday is always my fave Disney day of the year, For as long as I can remember Easter Sunday brunch is Alice in Wonderland themed! This means all my fave characters and usually my Cheshire Cat makes an appearance too 😍

This year I decided to wear my Queen if Hearts themed dress from Be Ba Go the interaction from characters was amazing. I had the best day!

Finally on the Monday Mark and I decided to wear our Muppets outfits. My dress and Mark’s shirt were made by the lovely Kaz at Frockasaurus and I made the ears to match myself

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I wore on my latest trip! What was your fave one?

I will be back tomorrow with part 2 of my Plus Size at DLP blog.

Thanks for Stopping by!

I’m new here …

Hi!

My name is Alyssa and I’d like to welcome you to my little corner of the web.

I am relatively new to blogging so please bear with me, I’m sure that I’ll improve with time!

I just wanted to do an initial introduction to myself and let you know what you can expect from my blog and why you might like to follow me and find out what I’m up to.

I am passionate about many things in my life including; my amazing family and friends, handmade crafts, fat fashion, makeup, fancy dress, everything Disney and my ginger moggy Mr Wooster cat … that really is just the tip of the iceberg though, more of my passions will come out the more you read!

This blog will be my place to express myself and showcase to you things that I love or am working on at that moment in time, this could include;
Craft Projects/Tutorials
Face/Body Painting/Special FX makeup
Makeup ideas/shoots/tutorials/tips
Outfit/Shopping/Fat Fashion
Fancy Dress/Cosplay to name a few ….

I have an Etsy store where I sell a variety of different crafts. At the moment the products on there are mostly Disney inspired, they include everything from silk painted scarves and pillow cases to jewellery to hand painted bags and aprons! This is a relatively new venture and as such I am still developing everything that I want to do with it. I will be using this blog to track the journey of my store and give you insight into what you can expect to see being uploaded on to it next so stay tuned to find out more! If you’d like to take a look at my store, you can find it here.

I studied special FX, photography, face/body painting and stage makeup at college and am passionate about everything to do with makeup. I love to be creative with colours and textures and the human form is such a wonderful canvas to transform into beautiful art with paints. You will see many posts about makeup no doubt, whether that be reviewing a new product I’ve found to behind the scenes pictures on a shoot I may have been booked for – I’d especially keep an eye out around Halloween time as I LOVE everything to do with that time of year.

I am a plus sized lady and I have an unhealthy obsession with clothes and fashion. There is a strong possibility that you will see lots of wishlists, outfit of the day, shopping hauls and outfit planning posts from me on here. The plus size fashion industry has boomed in recent years and the availability of so many wonderful clothing options now is far too tempting for me to resist.

So that’s a brief little introduction to what I think you’re likely to see here … this is all subject to change though, I have a tendency to go off on a tangent often so I can’t guarantee that you won’t get some random posts too!

I hope you enjoy what I have to say.

Alyssa xx
