Dead Girl Decay: Bridesmaid Freakshow

3

This has been quite the creative weekend. I have been in such an artsy mood. After completing my LeeLoo and Angelique portraits I have been itching to put down the pencil (temporarily) and get my hands dirty and full of glue gun burns.

My husband, Frank knows the way to my heart and how to talk me into going somewhere….. art supplies! So on Saturday he dragged me to the hobby store while we were out running errands so he could get Traxxas parts. While we were there he bought me a nice fresh v__287fbottle of liquid latex!  While I did start some new undead creations with it already, I am unable to show them to you just yet. They go through stages and are not finished. I am excited about them though and will post them as soon as they are done!

Frank and I are standing up in his brother’s wedding in April. I have been debating what I plan to do with my hair so that it doesn’t cost too much and decided to do what I do best.. make a hair piece! So we also stopped at another store and I got really lucky and found flowers that match the dress perfectly. Which I thought I would have more difficulty with because the dress is “guava” (not typically a color in my wardrobe or in my supply stash). Since there is no yellow in the wedding colors I kept to the colors of guava tones and white and hid any yellow tones in the lilies with layering. I topped it off with a beautiful silver and coral vintage cameo that I had in my supply stash (thanks to my Mother In Law who always knows when to spot the best stuff at garage sales). I am really happy with the way it came out. I texted a photo of it to the bride to be and she approves and loves it.

I am also excited because I commissioned Frank’s Aunt Bonnie to make me earrings for the big event. She makes jewelry and I own a couple pairs of her gorgeous chandelier earrings. Since I don’t normally wear guava/coral she made them in beautiful AB crystals! Look how beautiful they came out!

And the rest of the flowers didn’t go to waste. Not only do I now have stash supplies but it dawned on me that I could make a barrette to rock with my Sourpuss Clothing Sideshow dress!!wp_20170205_11_42_55_pro

Now this is a dress that I still have not warn yet. I got it on a steal thanks to my fashionista- deal finding friend, Heather. She saw it on sale and immediately thought of me. As some of you know already, I have quite the obsession with all things Freakshow/Sideshow/Carni/Circus and Sourpuss Clothing is by far my favorite clothing line. I love the dress but there are a few reasons why I have not worn it yet.

1.) My hair has been every unnatural color of the rainbow and all of them have been ones that have clashed with this dress ha ha

2.)  I didn’t really have any events to rock it to this past summer and when I did it was disgusting out.. muggy and gross.

3.) I don’t normally rock bright pastels so I don’t have much to wear with it and didn’t want to put the expense into buying say shoes I can only wear with 1 dress in my wardrobe. Everything I usually wear is either black, grey, lime green, purple, orange, fuschia, red etc. I have quite the macabre wardrobe ha ha.

Well my hair is black again, so I decided to take the first step by making myself a barrette that I could wear with this dress. I am now hoping I might be able to find a way to wear it to the bridal shower at the end of the month. Maybe my black Mary Janes will bring some of the black out in it. And with some tights and the right cover up I might be able to winterize it and pull it off. The trouble finding the right cardi or cover up is the way the top is cut. Hmmm…. Heather’s Pants Blog! Help! 😉

Dead Girl Decay: Ava Turns 7!

3

If you look at my Freaky Fanatic Slideshow you can actually see my god daughter Ava growing up through out all the photos ha ha. Needless to say since she was 1 she has rocked numerous Aunt Nicole “fairy goth mother” creations. This year she turned 7 and her mom/my best friend Regina got her a grey and lavender butterfly dress for her to wear. She was so excited about the dress that I couldn’t help but make her a matching barrette for her special day. She is also at that fun age where she likes to play dress up so when she saw it she immediately wanted to wear it. She loved it along with the Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy dolls we got her. Here are a few photos from her special day.

Check out more of the barrettes I have made for young girls as well as babies under the Batling Section of my Dead Girl Decay page! Contact me to do a custom order for the special little lady in your life.

Dead Girl Decay: Barrettes for Lauren and Baby Mia

1

This weekend was a busy but eventful one. Sunday was our cousin’s baby shower. When I found out they were having a girl I was super stoked to get crafting away on gifts for baby Mia. I was inspired by things that I knew Lauren really liked.

This included a set of my Mummy & Me (matching for Mother and Daughter) Sugar Skull barrettes. I knew they were doing the baby’s nursery in lavendar so I wanted to incorporate that special color in the set. Not only symbolic but when not in use she can hang them as decor in the room if she wants to. I also know how much Lauren loves Hello Kitty. So I couldn’t help but make a leopard print Hello Kitty barrette for baby Mia as well!

Lauren really loved them and told me she can’t wait until Mia is here to share them with her.
