MOTD: 54th Anniversary of 101 Dalmatians

Today, we are celebrating the 54th anniversary of a pretty special movie! Like most Disney movies, I grew up watching this as a kid and as I’ve grown, parts of the movie have stayed with me. I remember that when I used to play piano regularly, Cruella De Vil was one of the songs that I’d always be playing. And when I entered the world of tumblr, back when my hair was red, I had a lot of people commenting that I reminded them of Anita. I don’t know if I agree with them, but I do think that she’s a pretty cute character. There’s also been a resurgence in Roger appreciation, so I thought that it was very important to create this 101 Dalmatians inspired look.

So for this look, I decided to combine elements from the movie:



I gathered inspiration for this look from animal print eye looks. When most people think of 101 Dalmatians, they immediately think of Cruella and, admittedly, so did I.  As some of you may know, the voice of Pongo, Rod Taylor, passed away this month, so this was also a kind of tribute to him. I didn’t want to recreate Cruella because I feel everyone has kind of been there and done that. I wanted to do something that I haven’t seen all too often.


I didn’t try to do my hair any special way, I was thinking about wearing a black wig but its just not the same as having the black and white split. I also want to apologise for my sunburnt chest. I’m still getting over the burn that I got while I was in WA.

Here is my puppy and I. I felt like this look gave me the perfect excuse to take selfies with my dog:



Here is a list of the products that I used:

TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette – Matt Malloy
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Maybelline Hyperglossy Liner
Essence Princess Mascara
Elizabeth Mott Big Mascara

Maybelline Brow Liner in Blonde
Australis Clear Mascara

Milani Best Red

For those who’ve seen the Starkid musical, Twisted, while I was creating this look, I kept singing, ‘I only wished to have a coat made out of puppies!’

I hope that you are all enjoying your day!
