I shall call him squishy, and he shall be mine. My newest creation, Jellyfish earrings! I made them with sparkly fimo, deconstructed pastel yarn, crystals,pearls, prisms, ribbon roses, and tiny flowers. I love how they came out and have them up for sale at my shop macymarie.storenvy.com. Limited edition, I wanted them to look ethereal, magical, and flowy like the jellyfish. The powder puff clips are also for sale at my lil online shop.
Ride or die. Every year for my friend Lissete’s Birthday we get all dolled up and ride the vintage carousel in Seaport Village. I can’t tell you how fun and girly it is, and makes me feel like a kid, what a perfect way to celebrate your special day. I made her a party girl crown to make her feel special and loved. I really love this girl, because she is a loyal friend, really good to me, and always there when I need it the most. Plus super interesting, creative, loves to play dress up, and has a tea set collection to die for. We decided to go with a purple theme, hehe.
It is national Chocolate day so I decided to indulge in it! So lets celebrate the healthy way, with a dark cocoa anti aging mask. It is so easy and smells so good! It almost takes the craving for chocolate away, Almost. I still made myself a hottie chocolate just in case.(see recipes) It is National chocolate day after all. Just combine 1 scoop, TBS or so, of dark cocoa powder, and a slightly larger scoop of Greek yogurt. It will make a thick paste, and if it is too hard to stir, add a tad more yogurt. Stir well and apply chocolate mask with your finger tips to your skin. Leave for about 15 minutes, relax, and rinse with warm water. It made my skin feel supple, soft, and smelled so good it was a treat. I will try it a few more times to see how I like it. I came across a magazine article, well a beauty tip, about how Dominican beauties keep wrinkle free with cocoa. They believe it protects, and moisturizes the skin, and learned that ancient Aztecs used it as part of their beauty regimen. Cocoa is loaded with Flavonols,protective compounds that tame inflammation and neutralize free radicals, that cause aging. So make a dark hot cocoa,and sip it in the bath, while you wear this luxurious velvety mask. It is designed to gain more moisture for your skin. Happy National Chocolate day!
I have been making a limited edition collection of Wearable Art Peignoirs. Re worked vintage, decorated, by hand, dyed, stitched, and decorated with love. This Is My SleepyHead Jacket! A play of the candy Lemonheads, but with a victory curl. I love how it came out and was really hard to part with it. I already sold this beauty. The marabou yellow poms with the sparkly blue Gems are my favorite part, that and the little pink velvet rose bows. I am addicted to making little ribbon rose bow combos. I made this adorable baby pink powder puff purse from a hat box! I love it.

I have been working really hard on putting on a kawaii runway show. I painted cute pumpkin buckets for the models to throw out treats to the crowd. A battle of light and dark to display my personal struggle between the two worlds-styles was the story. I also wanted to showcase my love for costume, baby doll life, creativity, and accessories. It went beyond fabulous, and I went beyond tipsy. It was a celebration of self love, and getting dolled up. Every model killed it. The energy was so strong. It was hours of playing dress up and having cocktails with pretty girls. My good friends drove to town to walk in my show, and celebrate with me! So Happy! I met new friends, and inspired love and self expression. We rooftop partied, and my friend and husband slept in their van at work. In the morning I went to work, played more dress up, had hair of the dog drinks, and danced to T.S.O.L, Misfits, and the Cramps with my girl Kelsey. They slept over and we cooked and watched horror movies in bed. Then took the bus with my love and chilled in LA, attended Dripped and have been resting since. Well as much as I can get away with. My friends, angels from LA, and total babes who drove down to walk in my show. My Cherry Blossom. A submissive, girly, pink, cherry blossom faerie,who dances with the dark. Faerie and mermaid nostalgia swirled for a lust for Halloween. This is my Sea Goddess look. All for sale at macymarie.storenvy.com. This is one of my looks for the darkside. My Vampy Nurse slayed. The makeup artists got my vibe down perfectly. My friend Devin and one of the makeup artists:) Love this girl.
A rock ‘n’ roll nurse, goin’ into my head October is going by way too fast and I haven’t dressed up nearly enough. So today I went with a twisted nurse costume. I decorated the hat and leggings to my liking, and used a candy blood bag as a garter. I also made the little blood heart vile. The dress is vintage, and shoe YRU. So,Dressing up is fun and gets people in good spirit, so I go with it and inspire fun. I work at a popular record store-thrift store, with a huge costume section, so…. full time dress up! I had a blast helping people all day with their costume ideas, and Halloween dreams. I also made a Nurse playlist, because I go Hard. Seriously I live for dress up and tunes. So here it is:
- Pills- New York Dolls
- Code Blue-T.S.O.
- Love Like Blood-Blitzkid
- No Tears- Tuxedomoon
- Blood-My Chemical Romance
- Take the Pill- Emilie Autumn
- Cuts You Up- Peter Murphy
- Bloodletting-Concrete Blond
- Night Nurse- Gregory Issacs
I just received this fabulous gift in the mail from a fellow creative, and designer I truly admire. I sent her a fabulous package as well. Designer Trades are so exciting, and I am lucky enough to get to partake in them. Well luck has nothing to do with it, hard work and years of practice does. Skilled humans choose to practice, live, and indulge fully into their creative madness, rather than those who crave the attention for it. So I opened up the burlesque doodled envelope, and in lye a beautiful floral crown with a baby blue ribbon and faerie energy. And a fabulous doll faced brooch, valentine garters, and angelic pastel babies. My mom loved those when I was little. So happy because I love my gift, duh, and more the babe who made it, she really has a light. Her name is Elena and besides being a beauty, she designs for Doll Eyes NY. I absolutely adore her and everything she does. I also love red and pink so much, it reminds me of valentines day and Emilie Autumn. I also love a red lip with baby pink clothing. Ooh La Love. Cupids, angels, and cherubs tickle my fancy too, or anything Victorian, baroque, and reminiscent of old paintings. I love the little details, goes perfectly with my “new” vintage pink shimmery, day to night gown! I cant fucking wait to wear all this, and do my hair up perfectly over the top.
