Hey Howl Pack

It’s Mae Polzine! I started this blog back in 2015 to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. So, I post a variety of things. I stream a variety of things (gaming, body paint, art, etc.) on Twitch multiple times a week, with stream highlights and all VODs posted on my YouTube Channel.

Lastly, join our Discord to chat with other pack members. We have a great and supportive community over there. I love talking with everyone in Discord as it’s a great way to connect. Also, I offer Twitch emotes, sub badges, and moreover on my shop page as well as my own merch.

Turning Myself into Itward from Fran Bow

ng time. So, I was really excited to do that on during one of my more recent live streams on Twitch. I did a mixture of the game’s style with a more realistic skull using Madeyewlook’s Itward body paint as a reference.

Memorial to 2021 Body Paint

As a way of looking back at 2021, I decided I would kick off the year by doing a body painting that’s a combination of some of my most “loved” looks that I did in 2021. There are a total of nine different looks that went into this: deershroom, elf, split lips, butterfly skull, Captain Marvel, Howl Pendragon from Howl’s Moving Castle, Ursula, Cracked Stone Statue, and Ice Cream. I was a little nervous about how this was going to turn out. I wasn’t exactly going off of a reference short of looking at the body paints that I did for each of these looks. But not one with all of them combined, if you don’t know I can’t visualize things in my head. I don’t think in pictures, so sometimes that makes things interesting when I paint, draw, or do body art. So, while I knew what I was combining, I didn’t know what it would look like. So, I was surprised, to say the least with how much I loved the way this turned out.

Everything I Read in 2021

It’s been an entire year. I hope everyone had a good year. I thought I would wrap up the year by looking back at every single book I read in 2021. Honestly, I’m surprised by how many books I read. Not only that but I started reading new genres during the course of this year, though it still is related to fantasy/sci-fi (for the most part). We’ll see if 2022 is similar in terms of how many books I read. I have a lot on my reading list still.

Reflecting on December 2021 Goals

The month is over and so is 2021! Normally when I revisit goals from the previous month, I go over my goals for the next month. I’m not sure if right now where I’m hoping 2022 to go, so I’m going to hold off on making goals at the moment. I’m just going to live in the moment for the beginning part of the year and see how that goes. I’ll do reflections on the months still going forward on what’s been going on, what I’ve been consuming for entertainment, and whatnot.

My Thoughts on Kiss of the Selkie: A Little Mermaid Retelling (Entangled With Fae, Book 3) by Tessonja Odette

I loved Little Mermaid growing up. I used to watch it all the time to a point where I could recite the words of the first and second movies (primarily second) by heart. Though I don’t recall it to that level anymore, I know all the music and story insanely well. So, when I saw that Tessonja Odette was doing a retelling of that story in her Entangled With Fae series, I was all for reading it. While you can read the Entangled With Fae series in any order, I would recommend reading them in order as this book takes place one year after the events of Heart of the Raven Prince and refers to characters from there, so there might be spoilers to the previous two books.

You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch (Body Paint)

For the first Saturday (Caturday) of December, we decided to take on Classic Christmas characters. I let my Discord decide between a few iconic characters who I could become. They ended up deciding I would turn into the Grinch. And I seriously love how this turned out.
