Freaky Fanatic: Sam

2

I absolutely love when people reach out to me to customize my Ghoulish Garments. I often get asked to add the title of the art piece to the design because people tend to like the catchy titles that I give to them.

I was contacted by Beckie to do just that with my Barbie Eat Your Heart Out (Jennifer Tilly/Tiffany) piece. She had previously ordered the print and came back and ordered the customized shirt. Both were for her awesome daughter, Sam (also an artist) who has now become a big fan of my work (honored). She recently sent me this photo of Sam and it made my day! Apparently, Sam wears it all the time! How cool is this? Complete with Tiff leather jacket and all……..

My customers are seriously the coolest people on Earth. See Sam along with all my other Freaky Fanatics on my official portfolio website! And don’t forget to send in your photos so you can be featured here with all the cool folks who support artists!

Stay Spooky!

Hardcore Hearse Club 2018 Show

0

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make my booth a success this weekend. This includes my husband Frank and our friends Mike and Ellie who without them I would’ve never been able to vend. See this past week, not only did I have an allergic reaction to something (that caused me to break out in hives), but I also fell and sprained my ankle something fierce. The hives cleared up just in time for the show but the ankle will not be healed for quite some time. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them.

And I also want to thank my friends/family who came out to support me. Our friends Mike and Heather traveled up here to see the show and to support my work as well as all the hard work Frank puts into Frankenhearse (you have no idea how much work it is to wipe down a hearse in the heat for a car show). Heather’s Mom came with them and was not only dressed for the occasion but was ecstatic to meet Svengoolie. It really meant a lot to us that they came out. We were even more thrilled to hear that they had such a good time they want to come back next year.

And last but not least the AWESOME people who visited my booth. If you purchased something I am truly grateful. Not only because I missed a lot of work last week (from being covered in itchy bumps and mangled limbs), but because you liked something that I created and spent your hard earned money to support an artist. It speaks volumes.  Please send photos! I would love to add you all to my website showing off what you purchased from my booth! And for those who were not able to afford something but came by to say hi and tell me you love my work, you guys rock too! Just knowing you guys dig what I am masterminding means the world to me.

Stay Spooky!

Russell purchased one of my “Shit The Bed” Captain Spaulding – Sid Haig portrait stickers. He sent me a message with this photo showing me how he is displaying it along with my logo sticker…..

“I received your sticker today. It’s is now featured on my MacBook Pro. Just so you know, it’s among a very elite group of patches and stickers. As is the painting hand you sent me! Not just any sticker makes the cut!!”

From my previous post, you are already aware of how excited I was to see Kelly Doty in a commercial last week, rocking the barrette I made her on a future episode of Ink Master Angels. Well, last night was Season 2, Episode 2 and she is seen wearing my barrette for a majority of the episode.

Such a huge compliment. Please tell her know how kick ass you think she is for sharing Living Dead Girl Nicole’s creepy creations with the world!

Freaky Fanatics: Kelly Doty Rocks The Decay On An Upcoming Ink Master Angels

3

Last night we were tuned into Ink Master and a commercial for the future episodes of Ink Master Angels came on. I screamed out “HOLY SHIT! THAT’S MY BARRETTE!” My husband then re-winded our DVR and low and behold there was the incredible Kelly Doty on our TV screen, rocking the Dead Girl Skullerfly barrette I made and gave to her at last year’s Villain Arts Chicago Tattoo Convention.

If you are not familiar with the show, here is a great video used to market the new season. It’s of the tattoo artist hosts/judges being asked about their take on fashion. It really sums up why I wanted to make and give Kelly a custom piece of my Dead Girl Decay line!  When I made it I was inspired by who she is. Hence all the fun green tones I used. Not only is she an amazing artist, whose work I admire so much (would be a dream come true to be tattooed by her), but I thought she would really appreciate my creepy cute creations due to her eclectic goth style. This was definitely confirmed by her reaction the day I gave it to her, but seeing her wearing it on TV really makes me honored to know I am a part of what makes her so unique and amazing.

Make sure to tune into this season’s Ink Master Angels so you can see it for yourself! I already watch it every week but am now anticipating it even more!

Freaky Fanatics: You Keep Us Dancing!

I saw this photo posted on Instagram by YuvaKala, a fellow artisan who I have purchased from in the past. It hit home with me because it holds so much truth…

Every time I get an order from my Amazon or Etsy shops I literally get giddy with excitement. Yes, the benefits of having that little bit of extra income are great, but that is not why we dance or get giddy. It’s knowing that something we created and put our time, heart and soul into was admired by someone so much, that they actually spent their hard earned money on it. We know what it’s like to struggle and want to have cool things. So if our creations are those cool things, it literally blows our minds. So the next time you debate buying something from an artist that was handcrafted or going with that thing mass produced item that everyone else has, remember that for every purchase you make with us artsy folks, someone is doing a happy dance!

And to all of my Freaky Fanatics who have purchased from me in the past and in the future, thank you for keeping me giddy and dancing! You have no idea how grateful I am to have all of you supporting what I love to do.

Stay Spooky!
