Stevie Nicks Sleeping Curse Drugged Out Maleficent Custom Funko

So this is one of those cases where @standbackufools and I can be presented with the exact same parts and come up with a very different looking end product.  Though in some cases “different” is a good description here given that my version of Mal’s staff looks like a chicken on a stick.  She has a Bellatrix Lestrange head painted blond.  That’s harder because of all the curls and because her head fills up with boiling water when you behead her and it’s like head full of evil that wants to hurt you.  The body is a Melisandre from Game of Thrones with clay added to her staff to make the threatening chicken.

I will take commissions to replicate this funko, please contact privately to discuss price as the market for the figures in which I make these out of can change wildly.  Ask me about my etsy shop.

Stevie Nicks - ‘Stand Back’, with drugs (Arsenio Hall Show, 1991) and without drugs (Jay Leno, 1998)

Same look, same song, same moments in the song.

One rendition has the performer with the familiar conviction yet child-like wonder in her eyes, grooving along to one of her greatest hits.

The other performance has the same singer-songwriter, SEVEN YEARS YOUNGER, going through the motions. She stands almost completely still, her eyes staring vacantly into the distance as she dials in her flat, monotone vocals.

The difference: the earlier performance shows Stevie zonked out after four years addicted to Klonopin. The latter performance has Stevie returning to her usual spark, barely four years after detoxing from the tranquilliser.

Kids: this is what addiction to prescription drugs does to you! And this is why Stevie said this was worse than cocaine for her.
