Greetings, earthlings

This, I suppose, is the "Welcome to My Blog" post. The obvious thing to do here would be to tell you all (and by "you all" I mean my mother and a couple of stalkers. Hi mum!) a lot a little bit about who I am and why I'm here. So here goes.

My name is Candace but my friends call me Candy (at least they would if I had any friends). I like to make Disney references and play dress-ups, among many other things. Defining features include bright red hair, glasses, and a general air of cynicism. I'm a very creative person, working at a call centre for a bank. Which leads me nicely to why I'm here.

These are my favourite shoes. The tee is one of many pop culture references I make but no one gets.

I've been meaning to start a personal style and makeup blog for, oh, I don't know, donkey's years. But there's always been something holding me back, and it was usually something unimportant like the wrong camera or the wrong weight or my room wasn't clean enough or I was too broke for exciting new clothes. But quite recently, less than two months ago, I got a new job. I'll cover my old jobs in later posts but the long and short of it is that I'm now working in an office environment with corporate dress standards. I quite enjoy the work but am going a little crazy from keeping my day to day wear tame, so I'm looking at this blog as a bit of a creative release where I can post the version of the look that I would usually wear, and also (if you're interested), how I tamed it down for work.

Other things that that interest me and will probably appear here are costumes and corsetry, SFX makeup, Harry Potter, Batman villains, mermaids, cats, living with coloured hair, and Disney movies. I'm not going to come out and make promises about content, regularity, or features, mostly because I know I'll break them. But if this seems like the kind of thing you could dig then welcome, friend. Pull up a magic carpet, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

I need a sign-off phrase,
