Freddy Krueger Transformation

If you have been to my blog before then you know it was mostly all travel and ghost hunting post. I wanted to change it up a little bit because the title of my blog is called Lyinn's Life and I wanted to make it more about my life and some of the things I love. 
I will still be doing post on all of the strange and unique places around Ky, Ohio, and Indiana that I go to as well as ghost hunting. I am a lover of ghost hunting and finding neat, cool, strange, and unique places to go to and share with you. But I also wanted to be able to share other things that I love with you guys also. I have so many loves and who knows maybe we share some of the same. One of my favorite things is transforming myself into different things and characters and FX special effects looks and makeup.  So what a better way to kick off this new start to my blog then doing a post on my Freddy Krueger transformation. I turned myself into Mrs Freddy Krueger and it was so much fun. The gel that I used to make the burns with was from the Etsy seller and the costume was from Secret Wishes. The wig was from Ebay and the makeup was BH Cosmetics. Body paint was from Mehron. 
I went with the silver wig has a homage to Nancy in the movie who gets the grey strip in her hair after she gets the crap scared out of her from Freddy. I also loved the yellow contacts. 
Nightmare on Elm Street is one of my favorite Halloween movies so I really loved doing this look.

Fiona and Cincinnati Zoo

We visited the Cincinnati Zoo and I am not going to lie even though I LOVE the zoo and all the animals, I went this time for one reason and her name is Fiona. I have been following this hippos story like most of the world since she was born and to say I am obsessed is a understatement. I think her story is really amazing, how she over came all of the odds at birth to now be a happy healthy hippo who loves her momma. It just goes to show you how awesome the zoo is.
When we got to her exhibit her momma Bibi had a sweet face mashed against the glass and it looked like she was smiling at all the people ( like she was saying " I have the most beautiful popular baby at the zoo..lol..)
When we walked down below we could see Fiona's little butt by her mom. I stood in the same place for about a half a hour and waited for her to move so I could finally see her sweet face in person. After about a half hour she swam around by the glass and I got to see her!!! I was so excited and a little teary eyed ( hey lets not judge...lol..) to see her in person that I couldn't even take a pic, good thing Doug was there and he took a couple for me. She is the cutest thing and you can tell she loves her momma and her momma loves her. It was a great experience to finally see her up close. After our visit with the Princess herself we walked around the rest of the zoo to see the other beautiful animals. Oh and by the way when we went it was Zoo babies. I love looking at all the animals and being in aw of how beautiful they are. I even got to touch a snake. We had a great time on our visit. This is not the 1st time I have visited the zoo as it is only about 20 minutes from me but this was a special visit for me as I got to see Fiona.
