Final Fantasy!

Hey! I've decided to wrap up the Fantasy series cos I've got lots of other ideas that I really want to get cracking on! So for my final post I thought I'd have a round up of the characters so far (I'll probably do another series based around this theme in the future so there will be more to come). So here they are...

Dark Faerie...

Flower Fairy...

Forest Nymph...


Wise Owl...

Hope y'all enjoyed it as much as me!

An Owl, A Pussy Cat, And A Pair Of Ear Plugs!!

I know I said I was going to have a little break from the Fantasy Series, but after creating this look I couldn't resist posting haha! I liked it so much! So Leanne is round today to model for this look, but it's a wonder we can concentrate because my little cat Fudgie is going crazy! He's under our feet howling like mad because someone else is getting the attention. Haha he's such a baby. As well as Fudgie going crazy, the feathers for my look are blowing everywhere, and to top it off my Evil Arch Nemesis the Wasp is trying to get in through the window ...AAARRRRGGGGHHHH! Sometimes I think it's a wonder I get anything done haha. Anyway, after my character makeup disaster the other day (that's another story) I was determined to focus and get this look done...and I did-Yay! So today I bring you my new Fantasy Character Wise Owl...

I recently bought a new white base from Ben Nye. It's actually aqua paint, which I've never used before...I'm not sure I like it! Because it's a paint it sets hard and the rest of the makeup doesn't blend into it very well, so the look isn't as polished as I might like. Other than that I really loved it. I thought Leanne made a cracking owl haha.

Leanne also made my day when yet again she went out shopping wearing my creation. She makes me larf! Anyway hope y'all like it! I've got another couple of characters left in this series then I'm affraid that's it, but no worries I've already started on my next theme :D

And The Winner Is...

Meredith Jessica! Yay weldone Meredith! I picked the winner last night with the help of the lovely Kate. I say help...I drank lots of wine while Kate wrote down all of the entries on little bits of paper for us to pick out of a hat (well actually a handbag) haha. I did help a little bit...I wrote down some of the names too! The problem is I can't read my own writing haha so I thought it was probably best if I read all the entries out for Kate...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! I know I could have used random org, but I'm a bit old fashioned and I liked the idea of doing it this way more! As you can see we were busy little bees...

All in there were 352 little pieces of paper with all y'all names on. Kates writing hand was very tired...My wine glass lifting hand was also very tired haha.

We put all the little bits of paper into a bag, then Kate closed her eyes and picked one out...

And it was the lovely Meredith! Yay weldone! I can't wait to see what looks you come up with when you get your prize...

Just email me your details lovely and I'll get it sent out to you as soon as possible. I'm sure Kate will disagree, but I've really enjoyed doing this giveaway...I may just have to have another some time soon :D

Anyway, should be back with another new post soon. I'm going to carry on with the Fantasy Series, but have a couple of other posts to do first so...

Of an entirely different sort, I might add! This is Forest Nymph, the next character in my Fantasy Series.

This one was a bit of an experiment for me. I knew I wanted to have roots embedded into the skin, but I was too impatient to wait for my scar wax. So I decided to use a hot glue gun (not on my model though, don't panic!). Hoz had a really great idea to spread a surface with Vaseline so I could slide the glue gun roots off when they had worked a treat! The only thing was Hoz couldn't move much once I'd stuck them too her face haha.

I stuck the roots on with eyelash glue then dusted them with shadow, they seemed to take the colour surprisingly well. Although they did come away and need to be re-stuck a few times. All in all though, given the constraints I still quite like it...I have got some scar wax now though! So what do you think?

Hey y'all!! This is Pixi the next in the Fantasy Series. Not only am I introducing a new character today, but I'm also introducing a new model too...this is the lovely Leanne. Doesn't she make a beautiful Pixi! I've got a feeling you might be seeing a lot more of her in the future :D

I'm still loving the Fantasy Series so your gonna have to bear with me, there's more characters to come. Hope your all liking it as much as me :D

...Ooo just to let you know, Leanne went to ASDA (Walmart for my American friends) made up like this!! Brave girl haha.

When Good Fairies Go Bad!!

Yay! I'm having so much fun doing this fantasy series, I've got a feeling it might go on for a while! Hope you don't mind haha. So anyway here's the next Flower Fairy.

Aww I loved creating this look! I got to go shopping for accessories with the lovely Holly, then it was back to mine for wine and makeup...can't think of a better combo! Although I'm not really sure your supposed to give fairies too much wine...

Bad things happen!! Hope y'all like it :D

Darkness Falls...

Ok so as promised here's my first character from my Fantasy Series. I'm going with an Enchanted Forest theme as it's always been one of my favourite things to imagine since I was a little itty bitty...This is Dark Faerie.

I absolutely love this look, and I loved every minute creating it, but I was a little disappointed with the pics!! I just couldn't get the colours to show up to well. In real life they were beautifully rich metalic teals and purples, but sadly in the pictures they were wishy washy silvers and browns...Oooops haha never mind, I still love it anyway. I think the look suits Kat to a tee and she said it was her favourite one so far (even tho she didn't like having her neck painted hehe). You can't see to well on the pics (bit of a disaster all round this time) but I painted broken butterfly wings all over her neck. They looked beautiful :D

So what d'you guys think? Hope you like it!!

It may be in the words of Pauly D but as promised it's finally here!! My Thank You giveaway. I managed to get hold of a little something before I went away (which is a good job really because I've been so ill, and so busy since I came back). I'm actually quite jealous!! I really wanted one of these for myself, but I could only get hold of the one. However, I'll happily give it away to one lucky winner to say thank you for all your support. I was trying to think of a way to do this that would be fair to those of you that have been there from the start, but also to welcome new followers. I think StarrySkies had a really good idea when she hosted her give away, so I'm going to do something similar...every follower will get an extra entry for every comment they've left on my blog up to this point! I've already been through the comments and collated this information so you don't need to send me this. All you have to do is publicly follow my blog. That's it!! Simple!!

So I guess you'll all be wanting to know exactly what you can win...

It's the Sleek Mediterranean Collection!! It consists of a beautiful palette full of gorgeous colours, a pout polish and a blusher. Like I say I'm very jealous about this, but you guys deserve it more than me :D

So to enter you must be a public follower of my blog, and those of you who have commented on my blog up to this point will all get an extra entry for every comment. Thats it! The giveaway will run for two weeks, so the closing date will be on Thurday 15th September and I will announce the winner that weekend.


Oh just on another note...some of you may notice that I've changed the name of my blog. When I first set up my blog it was to coinside with the launch of my freelance nail business, and was intended to be a blog more about that, but as you can see thats not the case haha. Those of you that know me from way back when will always have known me online as UrbanelyDecayed so I decided to change my blog name to that too. Hope y'all still like it! Nothing else has changed apart from that.

Anyway I've got a Fantasy series coming up so I'll be back shortly with some looks for that...
