Xmas Turnaround Times

0

It’s that time of year again. Halloween is over (waaah) and before you know it Christmas will be upon us. So this is just a friendly reminder that if you want to order any of my art shirts for gift giving to keep in mind turnaround times. Each shirt is custom made to order. They average 2 weeks to produce and get shipped out once the order is placed in my Etsy or Amazon shops.

Living Dead Girl Nicole’s art shirts are Sid Haig approved! 🙂

I am also already getting orders in for custom Dead Girl Decay barrettes and inquiries for other custom creations, so if you are looking for me to handcraft you something unique for a gift, make sure to reach out to me ASAP so we can discuss your vision. Most custom items need time for ordering supplies and then additional time to actually make your vision come to life.

Stay Spooky!

Creature Feature: Mutter Museum

2

philly mutter (4)The Mutter Museum in Philly was mine and Frank’s #1 reason for wanting to go to Philly when we took our road trip with Mike and Heather back in March. Knowing how excited we were to go there Mike and Heather even paid for our admission as an added thank you for Frank driving the 11 hours to get us there (yes our friends rock!).

Part of the reason I was so intrigued by this place is because anatomy was my favorite subject in art school. Then you add on all my own “fun” ailments, my love for oddities and anything remotely macabre and that pretty much sums things up. Needless to say when we went there I was mesmerized by the place. We are both still so happy we got to experience it in person. Recently on an episode of Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour show we got to experience it all over again. As we were watching it we kept saying “ohhh we were there! We saw that!” ha ha.

I had been following the museum for many years before getting to go there and knew that every year they put up their Mutter Tree for Christmas. Often people send in ornaments to donate that go with the theme of the museum. Well this year I decided to donate one of my 2016 Santa Claws Christmas Ornaments to the Mutter Tree! Well go and behold I opened this post on Instagram this morning and could not be more thrilled!

So thrilled it arrived in one piece and is now a part of this incredible museum’s holiday tradition!  See other ways my art and handmade creations have been featured and displayed on my official portfolio website! Also if you like this ornament, there are other versions of it available in my Etsy shop. They are one of a kind so once they are gone they are gone! Happy Holidays everyone!

Freaky Fanatic: Zombie Christmas Campbell

Was visiting our friend Josh over the weekend and noticed he decorated one of my creepy creations that he has displayed in his home….

No it is not the church! :)~

It’s the zombie head I made for his Mom a few years back. Today is actually the anniversary of her passing. So I wanted to wait to post this so I could do so in tribute to her. I always thought it was awesome that not Josh but his Mom came to me and asked me for a custom zombie creation. Like myself, she too was a big horror movie fan. She was the first one of my customers to ask for slobbery fang teeth! Making this piece unique for so many reasons. Seeing it on display in their home still makes me smile. Thank you Mary for believing in my work! You are truely missed.

Have a photo showing how you have displayed or used my artwork, promo stickers or wore my handmade creations? Contact me so I can feature them here as well as on the Freaky Fanatic Slideshow on my Official Website!

Every year the woman on my husband’s side of the family do hand made ornaments and exchange them at a party.  This year I decided to make ice cream cone ornaments. I usually try to share what I make each year here on my art blog. So with that, here is a few photos of  this year’s creations…

Living Dead Girl Nicole meets Monster High

0

My Dad is so awesome. He threw me a total curve ball yesterday when I was opening Christmas presents from him.
When he was out shopping for me he discovered Monster High dolls.
He came across Operetta and Draculaura “oh my god they look like Nic” and got them for me.
He said he went through what they had but had to get these two because he could not believe how much they looked like me with the various hair styles I have rocked over the years and their clothing and accessories.
He told me he thought Operetta looked even more like me cause of her tattoo’d arm 😉
DSCF9104I thought it was so cool that he saw them and thought of me.  I guess now all I need is Elizabat to represent my purple hair and Frankie Stein for my Bride of Frankenstein obsession and I will have a set of  more “Nicole” dolls to complete my collection! Ha Ha! I can’t wait to rock them in my curio cabinet next to my Daphne Blake and Poison Ivy Barbies!  My Dad rocks!
Stay Spooky!
