Merry Christmas 2017 + A Christmas Themed Makeup Look // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are winding down from all the festivities.
I ended up spending the day with my family and pets--I took a ton of pictures of the progession and end results.
I will update with a "gift haul" for those curious--
but for now, allow me to show you how our Christmas went down. 

Noel...There is Noel in Christmas but there is no "L" in Christmas. <3

Lady Krampus // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
Krampus has been a huge obsession of mine for a long time. 
I personally love the more "human" approach to Sir Krampus--so, I took inspiration from that rather than some beast-like creature. 
Of course, the creature is still shown in my features but I am in LOVE with the oddly creepy and rather sophisticated humanoid versions of him. Much like in Vintage Postcards or magazines. 

--Now, here is my female Krampus--

Oh Deer // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
today's post was on a spur of the moment.
My mother made this glorious Christmas wreath a while ago and I instantly became obsessed and inspired to do something using it. 

 So, I created this little deer/fawn creature using it. 

So, I hope you enjoy my little artwork and please don't judge too harshly...
It's my first time using a Green Screen. 

I made the horns from paper mache and I am quite pleased with 'em. It was a last minute added feature, so being able to literally pull something outta'll do. It'll do. 

If you look closely at the wreath my mom designed--you can see a little vintage Bambi toy hiding inside.

Like I said, it was a little extra makeup look.
Nothing special or crazy, just wanted to do something using this gorgeous wreath.

❄️ Some Of My Christmas Crafts ❄️ // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
Tis the season for a ton of crafts and getting my hands dirty. lol

I just felt extremely inspired this year--thus, the crafting had to commence. 

I decided to take some shots of my progress during the stages of building up.

Winter So(u)lstice // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents,
I bring you gifts with another lovely makeup look.
This one is inspired by both the Winter Solstice AND the lovely story of Scrooge.
I wanted to do a Ghost of Christmas look for a long time but never got around to it until now.
Now--that I have the stuff and means to do it.

I want to also state that it took me forever to initiate a final look because I have been busy creating props for a ton of looks I'm hoping to create before Christmas is over.
This one being the first of hopefully a few! 

Anywho, I will show the process of creating my props in a post soon--for those DIY inclined, but for now just enjoy my work!
(I also want to include that this is a art-related look. Meaning, I also edited the bottom portion to look and resemble that of a floating ghost. I hope you don't mind my altering because I really needed to have my work come to life! Thank you!!)

My mom named this look for me.
She told me to call it "Winter SOULLESS" but with a little alteration, we created Winter So(u)lstice. I love my mom!

Parade of Lights 2017 // Hannabal Marie

Lodi was having their annual Parade of Lights downtown and so, as usual--we attended with bells and whistles.
Well, no jiggle-jangle but we still attended nonetheless. 

We arrived around 6ish with time to spare, so we took a ton of selfies and family shots for memory sake.

Collagen Hydro Gel Gold Mask // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
This is kind of a useless post but I wanted to post it regardless.
I purchased this little face mask at Walmart a few days ago and decided to give myself a little spa day.
I wasn't going to post anything about this mask until the end results really justified any reasons I had to do so.
ALSO, I took some fun photos and thought they looked cool.
So, birds with stones here, people. lol
