Dead Girl Decay: Custom Jack Skellington Barrette

2

What’s this? It’s a Jack themed Dead Girl Decay Barrette that I was commissioned to make for a return client in the UK! For the last 5 years he has commissioned me to make a new themed hair piece for his wife and its the first thing she opens on Christmas morning. This year he chose Jack Skellington. A character I have held dear to my heart since I was a kid.

Due to me always wanting to make my creations unique and there being so many Nightmare Before Christmas things out there, I decided to hand sculpt and paint the center piece for this one instead of resurrecting something store bought. This included Jack’s face, his bat bow tie and some whimsical Tim Burtonesque swirls for each side. I had never used this specific medium for sculpting so I challenged myself to try something new and am so glad that I did. Here is how it came out.

Living Dead Girl Nicole's Handmade Jack Skellington Custom Barrette

Since the barrette was going to be just black and white I added a touch of iridescent glitter here and there as a sparkly representation of when Jack first discovers snow. I found the perfect feather fringe from Moonlight Feather Inc. I loved how thin and wispy it looked and the alternating black and white gave it a striped look that gave me total Jack suit vibes.

When I sent photos to the client weeks ago he loved it and could not wait to gift it to her. Today I received these photos and a message from him on Etsy telling me how much his wife loves it too. She even made it a point to pose with a little Jack figurine! How great are these?….

It means so much to me to know that my creations continue to make someone else’s holidays brighter and I truly look forward to the “Ok I got this year’s theme picked out” message I get a few months prior to the holidays. I have always loved doing custom orders because I feel like they are a creative challenge and they really get my creative blood flowing. This one in particular also allowed me to discover a new medium that I am already using in my other creations. A win win all around.

Dead Girl Decay: Custom Alice In Wonderland Barrette

I am so thrilled to share with you a custom order I completed for a return client all the way in the UK. This client comes back each year to have me make a custom hair piece that he can gift to his wife for Christmas. This year he told me it is the first present she opens every year! I am so honored to be a part of this couple’s special holiday tradition across the globe. This year the theme he requested was Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. Here is what I conjured up…

The wife was very pleased and they sent me this stunning photo of her wearing it by the Christmas tree. I just love how perfect it looks in her hair.
