Dead Girl Decay: My Skeleton Cameo Wedding Look

0

Living Dead Girl Nicole Cameo Gothic Burlesque BarretteLast night we attended a wedding for our friends Matt and Mari. When I had picked out the dress and necklace I wanted to wear for the big event (thank god for new with tag deals on Poshmark), I knew I wanted to make a special barrette to wear with it. My dress had lady skeleton cameo faces and an ornate gothic black design in velvet all along the edges. So I got an actual lady skeleton cameo piece to be the focal point of the barrette. My necklace was a black lace choker that was very vampy with beautiful red stones set in ornate gold metal (reminded me of the Dracula medallion necklaces you buy for Halloween costumes). So I re-painted the silver metal frame around the cameo to match the necklace. I was very happy how it all came together.

For a glimpse of some of the hair accessories that I have made for clients visit the Dead Girl Decay page of my portfolio website. If you have a big event coming up or need a unique hair piece for your Halloween costume, contact me about custom orders. And as always check out my Etsy and Amazon shops for pre-made ready to ship items!

Back Bone: Barrettes for Sophie

4

Collect-picture-of-Sophie-LancasterAs mentioned in my previous post, I reached out to one of my favorite foundations to team up with them. With this week being the 10 year anniversary of Sophie Lancaster’s death, I wanted to do something that will not only give back but continue to help bring awareness to such an important cause. A cause some people in the US might not even be aware of and should actually be something we should be fighting for as well!

I have made 5 limited edition Dead Girl Decay barrettes where 50% of the proceeds earned will be donated to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Even though they look similar they are handmade which means no 2 are exactly alike. Unique, just like Sophie!

Sophie Group Barrettes

“Sophie was a thoughtful, sensitive individual and she would not have wanted her death to have been in vain.” – Sylvia Lancaster

In the center of each flower is a rose cameo accented in red glitter to represent Sophie’s thoughtful and sensitive spirit. The black and red rose petals and feathers are symbolic of Sophie’s gothic and artistic style as well as symbolic to the foundation colors. Each barrette has a small iridescent glitter tear drop on one of it’s petals. This is to represent the loss that is felt from Sophie’s death. The loss of a person whose life was taken from her by thoughtless, close minded people. All because she was a beautiful, unique individual.

These limited edition pieces are now available in the Back Bone Section of my Etsy shop. The special section reserved specifically for selling items I make to help the causes I believe in. Don’t wear barrettes? Then clip it up in your home, car or anywhere! Show your support anyway you choose! Buy one for a friend who like Sophie lives an alternative lifestyle! Let’s stop the hate that makes people scared to be themselves!

About The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and why your purchase can help:

“WEIRDO – MOSHER – FREAK, If only they’d stop at name calling” is something I have been wearing on a shirt I bought from the foundation for many years now. It is the motto of the foundation and a very strong one at that.

Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster FoundationThe Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established. It became a registered charity in 2009. The foundation aims to create a lasting legacy to Sophie by providing educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.

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.
