i had blue daisies and a skull tattooed onto my body a couple of weeks ago. it’s still very itchy but i digress...
welcome to my blog!
when i was in middle school my younger half-sister, kate, went on her “first date” with a boy. her parents drove them to the movies and everyone thought it was really cute. normally parents are like YOU CANNOT DATE (as they were like with me) but because my sister was such a tomboy, they were worried she may be gay (she is) and would go so far as to pay her to carry a purse. needless to say her mom and our dad are not good.
when the boy came for the ceremonial meet-the-parents thing, he brought kate a bouquet of blue daisies. they were the prettiest flowers i had ever seen and it blew my mind that they existed. i mean look at these things. and i vividly remembering their beauty distracting me from being jealous of kate for being able to go out to a movie or getting flowers. she was leaving for that movie, and leaving behind on our table that bouquet. for a few hours it was mine alone to enjoy.
when my sister’s mother was putting the flowers in a vase, she made sure to rub it in my face, saying something along the lines of “isn’t it nice that MY daughter received flowers, you never have.” (she is literally the worst human if you didn’t figure that out yet) but at that moment it didn’t matter, because blue daisies were a new real thing to me and that seemed more important. in our society, and surprisingly within my industry, there is a lot of women-hating-women for no reason beyond “that’s how we are apparently supposed to treat each other” and we are taught to compete or pin one against the other.
anyway, it felt right this month to get blue daisies on my body to always remind me that there are always new and real and better things to focus on than my insecurities against the backdrop of other women.
as for the skull, i’m currently dealing with medical issues happening inside my real skull so it made sense to get myself a backup one just in case #girlscouts #alwaysprepared :D
Now that the Westworld finale has aired, I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I got to work on over at Tinsley Studio for the show! I worked along a massively talented crew and the amount of bodies, props and makeups which came out of that shop is unreal. One of my favorite things was getting to paint some of the many masks which were worn in Pariah. I had a blast with these! Thanks to @tinsleymua for having us all onboard. :) #workworkwork #westworld #makeupfx #masks #skulls #pariah #tinsleystudio
(like I don’t have enough already as a baby vulture-)
How do you name skeletons/skulls/bones/etc. if you don’t know the gender of the animal? Do you go off a hunch? Do you wing it? Do you just.. not care nd that’s how you do it(that’s not a bad thing!!!)?
