Frankie Stein (Monster High) Gallery!

I have been an enormous fan of the Monster High doll collection since its debut in 2010. Released by Mattel, Monster High focuses on the children of classic movie monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein and The Mummy (just to name a few). Costume Super Center has adult sized Monster High costumes available for purchase. This gallery features their Frankie Stein adult costume and  wig.

 I ordered and used makeup to achieve Frankie's light green undead skin  from Kryolan. Contouring the cheeks were important to add dimension as well as eye makeup. I paired the dress and belt with black leggings since the green tights that came with the dress were too small. I also cut the green sleeves off of the dress in favor of painting my arms. This insured that my arms matched my face and neck. Don't forget those stitches! I drew them on with eyeliner. I finished the outfit with boots I already owned. This is a great example of altering a bagged costume and making it your own creation.

Kreepy 80's Kids Movie Review: Return to Oz

"Welcome to your nightmare."
Severed heads! Poisonous chicken eggs! Threats of dismemberment! Boy George impersonators with wheels for hands and feet! Electric shock therapy and a King who likes to wear women's sparkly shoes. No, you're not in Vegas! This a movie about the wonderful land of Oz and it's brought to you by Disney!

Welcome to the first edition of Kreepy 80's Kids Movie Review! As a child of the 80's I realized how absolutely terrifying some children's movies actually were. I'm still traumatized by creepy puppets, visiting aliens and  other Hollywood "family friendly" films (I really should be sending Steven Spielberg my therapy bill). I've decided to deal with my childhood trauma by writing humorous reviews. First up is Return to Oz. The film was directed by Walter Murch and released in 1985. It was the film debut of actress Fairuza Balk (who was 9 years old at the time) who played lead character, Dorothy Gale. The film boasted a budget of 28 million dollars but only grossed 11 million at the U.S. box office. Although it was a box office failure it has developed a cult following throughout the years.
