Creature Feature: Returning to Housewife of Horror

0

I am very excited to hear from horror host Housewife of Horror. This week they will be airing My Son The Vampire and she will also be wearing another one of my Dead Girl Decay barrettes on the show!

This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.

As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!

So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!

Back Bone: Keep It Handmade Animal Themed Auction

0

As you all know I love to use my talents to help others in need. I was recently asked to take part in another Instagram Online Artist Auction. This one being a little different then the last as one item must be donated to help a feline friend in need. As a cat mom who has had to spend a lot of money trying to save her own furbabies I could definitely relate and immediately jumped on board.

So with all that said, if you are on Instagram please follow @keepithandmade I will have these 3 items in their upcoming animal themed #artist #auction starting Nov. 13th!

When the auction goes live, look for the special items with paw prints. Those are the items specifically donated by the participating artists to help raise money for kitty Peeta. Which means you can get some holiday shopping done while helping a great cause and supporting artists all at the same time! Win! Win! and Win!

See other ways I have used my artwork to give back in the Back Bone section of my portfolio website!

Skinned: Halloween 2019 as Mavey Wavey

0

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Despite the snow we got here in Illinois we still made the most of it and I of corpse still dressed up! This year I pulled my inspiration from my love of Hotel Transylvania and went as Mavis!

I used my makeup skills to transform my face to look more like her by making sure to contour my nose and cheeks. And because I am committed to Halloween I even made my zing (aka my husband Frank) stop at 711 to get me a Slurpee so I could drink out of it all night and really be in character. I really had a blast with this costume. Here is how it turned out…

I was recently interviewed by the Chicago Tribune regarding our Frankenhearse. The article featured us as well as some of our fellow Hardcore Hearse Club members for our unique collection of hearses!

You can read the full article here.

Our photo was not included because the writer was not able to schedule a photographer in time. So here is a photo of us with Frankenhearse in case you haven’t seen our beast before!

Stay strange! Being normal gets you no where!

Shop Update With Limited Edition Items!

0

I have been going through my pre-made inventory and gradually adding items to my Amazon Shop. These are items that I had made but did not make them available to purchase online. So if you have not visited my Amazon Shop lately, it’s definitely time to start browsing again!

I have added 4 Limited Edition FRAMED Prints. Including It’s Gonna Be That Kind Of Morning (Pee Wee) in this metal rhinestone frame and 3 from my blood splatter collection. All signed by me and only 1 of each available!

I have also decided to discount the remainder of my pre-made Dead Girl Decay Accessories so that you can stock up for Halloween or prepare for the upcoming gift giving season.

And while you are there, why not pick up one of my one of a kind undead creations! Perfect for Halloween or for those of you (like myself) who like to decorate their home “spooky” all year round!

Custom orders are available but please keep in mind that the prices of custom orders will vary from what you currently see in my shop due to the inventory discount.

Stay Spooky!

Sid..Forever In Our Hearts

0

I don’t even know where to begin here and it’s just too hard to try to put into words how I am feeling. So I am going to leave you with what I posted on Instagram today because I think it sums things up the best I can right now about losing my friend Sid.

Living Dead Girl Nicole's Tribute to Sid Haig
The upper right hand photo is the first time I met Sid back in 2004. Little did I know that would be the beginning of a memorable 15 year friendship that I will forever be grateful for.

@sidhaigsays – When I heard the news that you were no longer with us my heart broke, I began to shake and the tears continue to fall. I have since been trying to find the words to say and its hard to put into words how special you are to me. That’s how much light you brought into my world. What started as a funny “well shit the bed” fan girl moment bloomed into a 15 year friendship filled with memories I never would’ve expected. All because you accepted me into your world. You always made me feel special, you were an inspiration to me as well as mentor full of wisdom and advice and when we were together it felt like time did not pass. We would catch up like old friends and I would literally say goodbye feeling like my soul had been uplifted. You were a remarkable human being with a heart of gold and the impact you had on my life I will forever be grateful for. May your remarkable and beautiful soul forever be at peace.

Backbone: Team Rosie Was A Success!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for helping us continue my Uncle’s fundraising efforts for #TeamRosie! We raised the most money out of all the returning teams. 

On top of it, when our team received the award, Down in the Southland shared stories of Uncle Randy’s past fundraising efforts and announced that moving forward this award will now be called the “Randy Sassano Memorial Award”! His passion and legacy will live on!

Thank you to everyone who donated, shared and helped make this happen! It means the world to our family. My Uncle would be so proud! 

Stay Spooky & Supportive,
