Aloha!!! 🌺 This weekend we had a blast escaping from the cloudy chilly day we were having for a little piece of indoor tropical paradise at The Tiki Terrace with our friends.
I could not go on a luau date night without making myself a matching Dead Girl Decay barrette to go with my Universal Monsters Creature From the Black Lagoon dress. So here is what I created.
The beautiful green resin skull in the middle was custom made for me by my artist friend at Resin Glitz By Jen. She made me quite a few of these so be on the look out for them in my future creations!
Here is a photo that shows how my dress inspired the barrette and how it pulled it all together.
Do you have an outfit that needs a one-of-a-kind hair accessory to go with it? Check out my other Dead Girl Decay creations and contact me with your vision. I love doing custom orders. Don’t forget to check out my Etsy shop for Limited Edition Pre-Made accessories as well!
So even though I have already drawn Winona Ryder (as Mina Harker) and Christina Ricci (as herself and in tribute to us sharing the same birthday) I still have had them on my art bucket list because they have portrayed so many of my favorite characters and are two of my favorite actresses. There are two characters though that stand out from the rest and I have related to both of them and have loved them since I was younger…. Lydia Deetz and Wednesday Addams.
My original plan was to draw two separate portraits but after searching for reference photos I kept finding the same photos and so many of them had already been drawn. Some multiple times. I really wanted to do something to challenge myself as well as create something unique. I decided that since both characters have very similar qualities and traits why not try to combine them into one of my split face portraits.
So I present to you you my latest piece called “Kindred Spirits”….
The entire time drawing it I knew I wanted to call it this because I feel like if these characters crossed paths they would be dressing up as homicidal maniacs together, rummaging the cemeteries, trying to join the dead in the nether world and capturing sheets with no feet on film . And on top of it I secretly wish I could be a part of it.
