There is a beautiful store call Notoriously Morbid at the Raleigh Mall. I went there to support a local artist and pick up a paint splatter mask I paid her to make for me. I brought her some red spider web fabric and give it to her to make her masks with as a thank you present. Sadie Lane is making masks to help her get by on her bills. Due to Covid-19 my boss requires us at Joann Crafts to wear masks. I decided if they require it I am going to choose some pretty ones. Best of all the paint splatter mask matches my shoes i made.
When I found out that Notoriously Morbid they had alternative clothing up to a size 6x in womens I brought my best friend Tella over to play dress up. We tried on several dresses. We had a lot of fun. I ended up buying an Elvira Mistress of the Dark face mask and Tella some chapstick. There was a beautiful 1950s pink and black polka wiggle dress I wanted so bad. It fit like a glove but I decided to leave there. I couldnt justify paying $65 for a dress. I was really proud they had clothes that fit my 4x best friend. I was proud when they said they had up to a 5x in womens. She looked really nice in them. I hope they will get plus size mens alternative clothing soon. I cant wait to send Michael my goth friend over there to look at the selection.
Tella and i looked around Gabriel Brothers and found a poof ball keychain. Tella wanted it for her keys. We went to the Dollar Tree bought eyeballs and cardboard mouths for our poofs. Hers had googly eyes and a pacifier. She called him Hubert. I bought a poofball at Dollar General. I made my poofball with googly eyes eyelashes and the mouth had braces. Mines name is Beatrice. Beatrice is currently protecting my car. It was such a fun little craft. Tella’s 8 year old son asked if he could play with the rest of the googly eyes with the cardboard mouth cards. I gave it to him let him have tons of fun. At least i made someone happy today.
At Gabriel Brothers Tella found a puppy mask she wanted. I found a cute tiger mask. Best of all both of them was $5 in the same pack. We put on our masks posed for selfies and laughed. I think the tiger mask will be part of the collection i wear at work. If i got to wear these masks they should at least be cute!
I am very grateful for having such a wonderful friend. I wish i could have spent more time with her but I work 7-3 tomorrow. Night
