March Madness is upon us and what better place to celebrate madness than to go on a few little trips to Wonderland? This month here at Horror Addicts, we invite you to join us in some wonderful, wayward & whimsical shenanigans as well as a few darker turns into the shadows. Madness is of course, a Wonderland in your head after all so we are all a special little kind of mad in our own way.
Even a cat will tell you that!
“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here.”
Alice asked the Cheshire Cat, who was sitting in a tree, “What road do I take?” The cat asked, “Where do you want to go?” “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it really doesn’t matter, does it?”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
The Equinox is March 20th so if you are looking to plan a mad little party, look for faeries at the bottom of the garden or sip an absinthe cocktail and write some verse, here is your opportunity! 😀
Do you ever wonder if you’re mad?
Could it be the dreams you’ve had?
Or because you’re often sad?
Take heart my friend, we’ve all been there
And honestly to be quite fair
It’s better if you just don’t care.
One of my favorite makeup artists on Youtube is Klaire de Lys, her videos with unique vision and her quiet and gentle voice are so lovely to watch, even when her tutorials are sometimes a bit…unsettling. This Banshee makeup is in my top 5 favorites, inspiring me to try screen lenses myself for their other-worldy look and uncanny beauty.
Do you find unexpected beauty in the strange and mysterious, Addicts?
It’s hidden all around us!
Klaire’s first Book, Outsider
“After witnessing the murder of her parents for marrying outside of their race, half-blood Astrid wants nothing more than to be left on her own. Placed in the care of Dag, a forgetful but well-meaning warlock, she vows to never feel as lost and helpless as she did on the day they were killed, and turns her back on the elves and the dwarves for destroying her life.
Forty years later, young dwarf Jarl Vǫrn is certain that his city, Bjargtre, is under threat from an emerging goblin King. When his fears are dismissed, he asks Astrid to help him and his adoptive son, Knud, to reach the capital of Lǫgberg safely, and Astrid finds herself pulled back into a world she never wanted to be a part of again”
Kindle edition is free on Kindle Unlimited (otherwise $6.99/$14.99 on Amazon), is lending enabled and already queued up on my spring reading list!
The haunting music in Klaire’s video is

Stay Beautiful, Addicts!
