The Purple Pieman & Sour Grapes Inspired Looks // Hannabal Marie & Detra Domain

Hello ladies and gents, 
me and my brother decided to do some makeup/fashion inspired looks by one cartoon/character my mother was obsessed with growing up--Strawberry Shortcake.

So, yes--this is a mini photoshoot dedicated to our mother. 

Me and my brother Detra Domain decided to take on the duo--
The Purple Pieman & Sour Grapes.
Can you guess which one is meeee? hehheeee

Photos found Via Google.
I fell in love with the character The Purple Pieman when I did a little research on him.
I really love the whimsy and quirkiness he possessed...and my brother really captured Sour Grapes in both an artistic way that tied both him, as a person, and the cartoon into one big amazing work of art. 

Again--just to emphasize; This is a work of INSPIRATION.
We did these two characters in a way that spoke to us.
Also, the duo we are talking about are from the Strawberry Shortcake cartoon in the 80s.

Detra Domain took inspiration from The Jetsons, as well as the look and design of Rita Repulsa.
That retro "space-age" vibe is what was in mind for this specific villainess.
A means of making her more "modern" and "today."

Photo Found via Google. 
I took inspiration from the specific cartoon itself and the work of John R. Dilworth.
Or better know as the man behind Courage The Cowardly Dog.
I wanted to keep to the original but also mix in a little something that would make this be more me.
I like the dark and whimsical, so hence the Dilworth inspiration. lol

Anyways, just ranting.
I'm sure you came to see some photos.
So, shall we get to that now?

Random Quirky Goofy Goofs // Hannabal Marie










I also made a little video, just for shits and giggles--so, please...SHIT AND GIGGLE! 

Valentine's Day 2018 // Hannabal Marie

Treats Galore. 

Hello ladies and gents
I hope everyone had an amazing Valentine's Day full of love and admiration...
I had such a lovely peaceful Vday myself.
I spent mine with my family--we went to a nice dinner, exchanged gifts, ate some candies, cuddled with our pets, watched movies and I ended my night telling the people I care about how much I love them. (my family, friends and bf)

I know how Valentine's Day seems to have quite the rep with lovers and married couples but I want to also say that Vday can be a day of appreciation and love towards those that been there since day one--family members, friends, nice neighbors and of course; the pets! hehee

I just feel so full of love and despite this hallmark occasion--I do feel pride and a sense of pleasure in celebrating this year full of respect and love towards those that matter to me. 2018 still has it's up and downs but I feel loved this year--a lot more than any other year prior.

I hope everyone had fun and all those lovely things--but please remember: This is a holiday of expressing love NOT buying red roses or those highly expensive chocolates. Things are nice when given from the heart but you should NOT feel like you HAVE to buy useless stuff in order to be loved and to feel loved. It should be expressed without a need of some price-tag.

Anywho, enough with the chit-chat--time for some photos.
As I said, I celebrated with my family.
We woke up and exchanged some gifts. Nothing too crazy, mostly candies! haha
I did receive some AMAZING stuff from my parents and brother! 
Like beautiful clothes and a cute porcelain clown doll to add to my collection. 
A few pieces of jewelry and thrifted finds.
I felt compelled to do something makeup/artsy related modeling my new articles of clothing--so hence the bulk in photos. lol

Anyways, time to gawk at my weirdness! :3

These were all the families gifts. I got something for everyone. hahaa

Thrift Store Haul--VTG Sombrero, Decapitated Geisha & Odds n Ends // Hannabal Marie

Hello ladies and gents
I have another lovely haul for you all.
Just some random trinkets and thingy-ma-bobs
I collected throughout the week at local penny shops and thift stores.

I think you'll really like the collection I have to show you all today--
Because I sure loved them when I found them.

So, enough with my useless banter...

The first thing I seen hanging from a nail at my local thrift shop was this gorgeous Buddha plaque.

Some Old Photos I Found // Hannabal Marie

This was the very first images I took of our babu Charlie using the crappy webcam on my laptop.

Hellou ladies and gentlefish--
I was going through a few USBs and other data storing things of that nature
and stumbled onto a few images I never posted to the interwebs.

This, my dear friends, is not a good thing.
All things MUST be viewed by the general public.
And it must be done pronto otherwise my existence is in vain and all for nothing.

Also, I need space and it's either dump the crap or post for memories--so, I chose the latter of the two.

I don't recall a time-stamp, so forgive me when I say that some are old as f*ck and others are fairly new. Like last year new.
I have some stuff from holidays and some stuff from moments I wanted to snap and remember for giggles-sake....
so yeah, I hope you enjoy and tune in next time...
for when I dump a whole lot more from USBs I never checked. HA!
