Big Hero 6 Partying With Baymax

Who doesn’t love that big ball of chubbyness Baymax? He’s honorable, sweet, smart, strong, funny, and above all adorable. If you’re looking for a theme to your next party, Big Hero 6 is a winner. I hunted down all the Big Hero 6 decorations and party supplies I could find. Here are some cool things I found.

When preparing for a party the first things you need are the basics: plates, napkins, cups & invitations. Once you have these, you can focus on the other decorations and activities you want to have at your party.

Similar Finds: Gone Girl Collar Dress

I recently read the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. If you haven’t read it, I totally recommend that you do. It is an easy page turner that will keep you hooked to the very end. If you are not a fan of reading, you can check out the movie starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tyler Perry. It stays pretty close to the book and does a great job of portraying the characters and atmosphere. The movie is directed by David Fincher who also directed the TV show House of Cards, The Social Network, and Fight Club. *Side note: I Cannot wait for the third season of House of Cards to air this February! Yay!*

As I was saying, I read the book and was so pumped that I immediately watched the movie. In last scene the main character wears a gorgeous collared dress. It was a good idea to watch the movie because this dress became my new obsession. I searched for the Alice + Olivia Courtnee Combo Cuff Dress but it was sold out everywhere. However, instead of fretting (or going the ebay route) I decided to find similar dresses; and I am happy with my results.

Alice + Olivia Courtnee Combo Cuff Dress

This is the actual dress used in the movie. My favorite part is the back of the dress. Contrast cuffs and a fold-over collar lend a polished look to a fitted alice + olivia dress. The exposed zip cuts a clean line down the layered back. Long sleeves.

Patrick Fatica: Pop Culture Themed & Somber Art

Any fans of pop culture TV shows the likes of Lost, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Parks & Recreation and The X-Files are in for a treat. Artist Patrick Fatica, has a talent for capturing my favorite¬† characters in his paintings.¬† The image above is Patrick’s rendition of Jack Nicholson’s character, Jack Torrance, in The Shining. In this piece, as in many of Patrick Fatica’s pieces, I am drawn to the storytelling he accomplishes through the character’s eyes. The eyes are a well of unanswered questions that draw you into Patrick’s work, leaving you admiring the details and searching for answers.
