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!

Adopt The Undead: Here Comes The Brides!

2

Since my first two limited edition corpse dolls have been adopted, it was well overdue that I make another one. Since two heads are better than one I decided to take it up a notch after finding some killer supplies that got my creative blood flowing.  These ladies are waiting for their Mr. Right and it appears they have been waiting a long time.

This limited edition doll will be making its debut at the Hardcore Hearse Club show that I am vending on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs on buying it! No two dolls I make are every alike or duplicated. So if you get your hands on one, you are getting a one of a kind creation!

Freaky Fanatics: Emily and Gabby!

0

Been having a rough couple of weeks with our cat Ichabod being sick and these 2 Freaky Fanatic photo submissions helped brighten up my days!

Jem Pizzazz Cornhole Bags Living Dead Girl Nicole

First is from Emily who commissioned me to make her a poster sized version of my “It’s Showtime Synergy” painting. It came out to be 48″ x 36″ which is the largest print I have done so far of my work. When she contacted me to make the poster she had a vision in mind. She wanted to make “corn hole” bean bag game boards. Jem vs Pizzazz. When she finished them she sent me a photo. She said her and her friends love them. So do I . How cool are these!!?? I want to play!! A shout out to MinuteMan Press in Frankfort for doing an incredible job printing this for me!

Maggie Tim Curry Pennywise Furter Living Dead Girl Nicole Print

Next up is a photo I received from my customer Cristie who purchased one of my “Penny Furter” prints for her daughter. Along with the photo came this message…

“This is a picture of my 13 year old daughter, Gabby, with her Penny Furter picture. She is a fan of both movies and Tim Curry, so this is perfect! We framed it and she has it hanging in her room above her bed. Thank you so much! She loves it!”

I am truly honored. Not only was the piece purchased to give as a special gift but the recipient loves it so much she has it proudly displayed above her bed. Thank you Cristie and Gabby. You ladies rock!

See these photos along with my other Freaky Fanatics on my official portfolio website! And don’t forget to send in your photos so you can be featured as a Freaky Fanatic as well! Every time I receive one it inspires me to create even more! So please keep em coming and I promise to keep creating!

Drippings: Showtime Synergy!

3

meThank you to my parents for making it possible for me to grow up in the 80’s! As you may have read in my artist bio or just from knowing me, I had 2 alter egos growing up… Elvira and Jem. Not only did I dress up as both of them at some point for Halloween when I was little, but I really feel they formed me into the creepy yet colorful woman I am today. I look at some of the things I wear, the things I am drawn to and it really speaks to who really drew me in when I was younger (no pun intended) and inspired a lot of what I am into even today as an adult…….

Rocking my horror shirts with my multi-colored hair……a bit of goth with a bit of neon….a bit of black with a splash of glitter or zebra print. Is that a bow with blood splatter on it? Is that a hot pink dress covered in bats????…… Yep that’s me!

So with that I decided it was long over due for me to stop passing up the blank piece of canvas I have sitting in my art room and finally do what I have been meaning to do to fill it. Needless to say my Saturday was “TRULY OUTRAGEOUS!”

Here is how it turned out when it was done….

Jem’s “special” earring, the middle 80’s geometric split and the white sparkle in both Jem and Pizzaz’s eyes were done with glitter paint. The same paint I used as a kid to decorate my own t-shirts. I felt like it gave it that much more of a 80’s/Jem feel.

I decided to call this piece “It’s Showtime Synergy!” and had fun this morning taking a photo of it next to the only things I still have left of what use to me my enormous Jem collection as a kid.

This includes the poster that came in the box with one of my many dolls. I have my Dad to thank for that being in one piece and my brother for rescuing it for me. My Dad use to know how much I loved the Jem posters that came in the box so he would put them on poster board and seal them with cellophane before we would hang them on my walls.

My brother found it a few years back in my Grandparent’s basement. They had passed away and the family was going through their stuff before they sold their house. It was there because I had a time in my life when I had to live with them. It was one of those things I had to leave behind when I had to make a sudden move from their home (depressing story about my life I won’t get into here) and never looked back. He said he saw it and immediately grabbed it and said “I KNOW that is Nic’s!!”

The Pizazz doll is the only doll I was able to grab during that sudden move as well. I was a freshman in high school but I still grabbed her and stuffed her in my suitcase. A reminder of a better more colorful time of my childhood before all the chaos took it over. She sits in my curio cabinet as a reminder that not all of my childhood was lost.

My husband and I are going to look for a cheap frame for it and paint it neon (of course)! Then I am going to hang it in my art room amongst all the other fun things that inspire me. Since I am already getting a lot of feedback on it, I plan on taking the painting to Kinko’s to get a large scan done of it so I can offer prints. Once available I will post an update to let everyone know! Maybe I will even glitter paint the prints on request! How fun would that be?!

See more of my paintings on the Drippings page of my official portfolio website. You can also see various other things I have painted on the Remains page!

Stay Spooky and Outrageous!

Dead Girl Decay and Loves: Ava Turns 4.. Monster High Style!

0

My god daughter Ava Nicole turns 4 on November 6th! Her Mom had her 1st of two birthday parties this weekend. It was a Monster High themed party and since Ava was Abbey for Halloween I decided to make her a very special Abbey inspired Dead Girl Decay Barrette.

We also got her the Monster High doll that you can “draw” on! See Ava shares a very special thing with her god mother…  when I was little I use to use my markers to make Barbie look more fun. You know give her designs on their face and arms, special fun makeup and make her hair all sorts of fun colors. That was until Jem and the Holograms came out and my prayers were answered.  Well in Ava’s case her Mom found her in her bedroom with the same fun habits which I find incredibly awesome and hilarious at the same time. Ava now really loves the Monster High dolls and well I can admit I am a tad bit jealous they were not around when I was a kid ha ha.

Here she is opening the doll. As soon as I told her you could draw on her she immediately wanted to get her out of the box ha ha
