Creature Feature: Blick Wearable Art Contest

0

Blick  is running a Wearable Art Contest! Which as we know is right up my alley. The winner receives a nice art supply prize package that I can definitely use as well!

If you have a Facebook account please go here http://bit.ly/2xZwmjO and show my Hellraiser Cenobite Dead Girl Decay Barrette some entry love!

I chose this particular piece because it is still one of the funnest, wearable art commission pieces I have made to date. I am sure I will be one of the few whose entry comes from the dark side, but I hope to make Clive Barker and Doug Bradley proud! Plus, when haven’t my creations stood out from the norms 😉

HellRaiser

This is a commission piece I completed for a Hellraiser horror movie fan. The center symbolizes Doug Bradley as Pinhead. It was made from Fimo Clay and hand painted to give it depth. Small nails were used as “pins”. The flower petals were all artificial flowers in various shades of blues, black and greys that were alternated between pieces of of patent leather snakeskin fabric that I cut to look like petals as well. I took necklace chain to symbolize the torture chains used in the film and of course splattered it with red paint to give that blood effect that all horror fans love! The customer was beyond happy with the end result.

Stay Spooky!

Back Bone: Made To Order Sophie Barrettes!

0

With how quickly I sold out of the 5 limited edition Sophie Fundraiser barrettes (where 50% of the proceeds earned were donated to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation) I have decided to offer these as MADE TO ORDER items in my shop. If you are interested in having one made for yourself please go to the listing that has been set up to order. Please allow additional time for ordering supplies and the creation process.

Sophie Single Barrette

Together we can continue to help the Sophie Lancaster Foundation and what they stand for! Thank you to everyone who bought a barrette. It was incredible to see them all sell out in only a couple of days and the last one be sold yesterday on the 10 year anniversary of Sophie’s passing. If you did purchase a barrette please send me photos of yourself rocking it. I would love to put together a collage of Sophie supporters for my Freaky Fanatic slideshow and share them with the foundation as well.

Back Bone: Barrettes for Sophie

0

Collect-picture-of-Sophie-LancasterAs mentioned in my previous post, I reached out to one of my favorite foundations to team up with them. With this week being the 10 year anniversary of Sophie Lancaster’s death, I wanted to do something that will not only give back but continue to help bring awareness to such an important cause. A cause some people in the US might not even be aware of and should actually be something we should be fighting for as well!

I have made 5 limited edition Dead Girl Decay barrettes where 50% of the proceeds earned will be donated to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Even though they look similar they are handmade which means no 2 are exactly alike. Unique, just like Sophie!

Sophie Group Barrettes

“Sophie was a thoughtful, sensitive individual and she would not have wanted her death to have been in vain.” – Sylvia Lancaster

In the center of each flower is a rose cameo accented in red glitter to represent Sophie’s thoughtful and sensitive spirit. The black and red rose petals and feathers are symbolic of Sophie’s gothic and artistic style as well as symbolic to the foundation colors. Each barrette has a small iridescent glitter tear drop on one of it’s petals. This is to represent the loss that is felt from Sophie’s death. The loss of a person whose life was taken from her by thoughtless, close minded people. All because she was a beautiful, unique individual.

Sophie Single Barrette

These limited edition pieces are now available in the Back Bone Section of my Etsy shop. The special section reserved specifically for selling items I make to help the causes I believe in. Don’t wear barrettes? Then clip it up in your home, car or anywhere! Show your support anyway you choose! Buy one for a friend who like Sophie lives an alternative lifestyle! Let’s stop the hate that makes people scared to be themselves!

About The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and why your purchase can help:

“WEIRDO – MOSHER – FREAK, If only they’d stop at name calling” is something I have been wearing on a shirt I bought from the foundation for many years now. It is the motto of the foundation and a very strong one at that.

Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster FoundationThe Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established. It became a registered charity in 2009. The foundation aims to create a lasting legacy to Sophie by providing educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
