The Kryolan nail polishes are shockingly amazing! They are only $4.50 and give you great coverage. While they do require a second coat of polish, the best part is each layer dries very fast. No more waiting 10 minutes for your second coat to dry just for it to smudge the second you touch anything!


Setting powder is a must when working with crème makeup. I love using Ben Nye’s Fair Translucent Setting Powder when doing beauty makeup. It takes the oiliness out of my makeup and keeps it on all day. I love how fine and smooth the powder is and how the slight tint helps even out completion.


I LOVE the DMC cross stitch kits for so many reasons! They come with literally everything you need to start cross stitching.  It even comes with a really great needle, but try not to drop it down your couch!!! (speaking from experience) 

The kit just makes it so simple to start. I was scared to start before because finding an easy pattern and all the supplies seemed just so daunting and I was sure I would buy at least one wrong item.  

But I was very surprised when I grabbed one and that was it. The kit actually had everything I needed and didn't require me to buy a bunch of other stuff. However, I did grab a different colour and swapped it out to make a more customized first project. 

I can safely say it was super simple to start and now I am hooked! I highly recommend these kits if you are looking to start cross stitching.

Wig caps are an essential when it comes to wearing a wig, especially if you have a lot of hair like me. Wig caps hold your hair in place under your wig saving you from your natural locks peeking out. Wig caps also make wearing a wig more comfortable as it adds another layer between your skin and the wig cap. I personally love the mesh wig caps (wig net) because they are easy to pin through without ruining them.

This new Theatre Garage bow tie is my new favourite thing!! The design and idea has a great back story from John Oliver of Last Night Tonight (please see below). This bow tie is all about love! This bow tie design was inspired by the book “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” By Marlon Bundo with Jill Twiss. This children’s book focusses on the life of the gay bunny Marlon Bundo. We would like to thank John Oliver of Last Week Tonight for making this book happen. We were inspired by the book and its commitment to donate to the Trevor Project and AIDS Untited that we have decided to donate 50% of all of our Marlon Bundo inspired bow ties to the Edmonton Pride Centre. You can get a get a copy of the book at:

Face painting sponges are ideal for body painting large areas. Just cut the sponge into quarters, moisten and mix into a water based makeup puck. These porous sponges leave a much more even finish than a latex sponge.

The Rock Star Wigs are amazing! These higher quality wigs have lots of super soft hair in the wig to make it look more natural than lower quality wigs. They have adjustable wig caps and combs sewn into the wig to help keep the wig on your head while wearing it. The wig caps are also large enough to hide long hair comfortably without showing your hair underneath. You are able to use a flat iron and a curling iron on these wigs. They are heat style-able up to 182 degree Celsius! They are so comfortable to wear and feel like real hair. They are so fun to play with and come in a variety of styles, as well as colours. They are great to change up your look without committing to changing your own hair. With the Rock Star wigs the company does a Wig 4 Wig with every purchase. That means that every wig that is purchased one is given to someone who needs a wig, such as cancer patients who has lost their hair due to therapy. It is an amazing way to give back to the community, as well as a great product on the market.

Ben Nye's distressing powders are some of the coolest products I have ever used. If you are dressing up as a character from anything post-apocalyptic, they add that last touch to your make up AND costume! You can sprinkle them right on to your costume for a dirty look, or mix with oil and apply for a really gross and grimy look. Perfect for that Walking Dead costume you've been planning!

This 2 Point Turner is an amazing product to help you turn points and pushing out seams. If you have corners or a curved edge this tool helps smooth it out to get the seam flat so you can press it nicer than using just your fingers. It is so easy to use and worth every cent.

Bruise powder by Bleeding Arts Industries is magic! It's the easiest bruise effect I've ever seen. Simply pick up some of the powder with your finger, brush or a q-tip and rub it on the desired location. The more pressure you ass the darker it gets. BAM you have a fresh looking bruise!

Kryolan's UV-Dayglo Aqua Color are a Face Paint that glows under black light. My personal Favorite UV color is the UV-Pink. Aqua color can be applied with a wet brush or sponge. For a long lasting finish use For a long lasting finish use Final seal to set your makeup. Aqua color can also be applied to the hair as a temporary hair color. Just wet a toothbrush with Liquiset and use it to transfer pigment to your hair. It makes for a fun bold look.

Liquiset is a very cool product with a multitude of uses! Used for thinning airbrush paints or in place of water for any aquacolor (or your favorite water based makeup) to create a near waterproof finish. You can also combine it with your favorite eyeshadow to create a smudge proof liner! Or, for a really awesome special effect use with our Graftobian powder metal for a liquid metal look! In my opinion this product is an essential to any makeup kit! For a professional or hobbyist this stuff comes in handy!

One of my favorite tools in my drafting kit is my pattern notcher. I still have the first one I bought in college in 2001. I love my pattern notcher because I can cut clean, perfectly shaped notches every time. The notcher is a high quality tool made entirely of metal that will continue to perform for many years. Mine still cuts the same as when I bought it in college. The notcher cuts like a hole punch into paper patterns for marking of important details of your pattern (matching points, sleeve ease, style lines, etc.). Rather than using tracing paper to transfer marks, notching your pattern  is much faster, cleaner and more accurate. This is a tool I never leave behind for any project! You can find pattern notchers in the Sewing Shoppe in Theatre Garage, $55/each. IMG_3516 IMG_3518
