Thrift Store Cosplay Day 14

Day 14: Aladdin Aladdin is one of my all time favorite Disney movies. It’s neck and neck with Lion King for me.

I never had a first kiss in high schoolContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 9

Day 9: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians I had to go a little different direction with this one. I couldn’t find white hair spray and my white hair chalk failed me. But the two-tone effect is still there, making villainy that much easier!
