I have been bouncing back and forth between life and the undead for the last few weeks after receiving a custom order to make some corpsified creations for an upcoming wedding. Being a Halloween (2009) bride myself I wanted unique things for my wedding that I could not find at the stores so I also commissioned artists to bring my visions to life. Being an artist, It was actually very important and symbolic for me to include handmade creations. Having been there and done that I also know what all goes into finding the right artist to bring your vision to life. So when someone wants to incorporate my work into their wedding I am beyond honored.
For this order I was asked to make custom zombie cake toppers for a blonde groom and brunette bride with the dominant wedding color being a burnt orange. I was also asked to make 3 zombie hand barrettes that they will be using to clip to things such as boutonnieres. Here is what I conjured up!
When I do a custom order I always send updates to the client on how far along I am in the creative process and when all is said and done I send photos of the creation when it is completed to make sure no changes are needed before I ship it out. Needless to say I was very happy when I got a response from the bride today that said…“The amount of detail is impressive!!! These are great!!!”
These corpsified love birds will be shipping to their Bride and Groom counterparts this week!
I was commissioned on Etsy to make another set of corpsified cake toppers! Whenever I get an order for these they always make my heart skip a beat. Just knowing someone wants to incorporate my creations into their special day is such an honor. And being a former non-traditional Halloween bride myself I love that couples are doing what makes them happy and what represents what they are into and who they truly are. This time the order was for a couple who is getting married this Halloween and their main wedding color is going to be red.

I apologize for being M.I.A, I have been working on a very large commission painting and trying to get it done by it’s deadline. It’s consuming my every free minute. However as soon as I received these photos I knew I had to stop for a while and share them.
LeAnne reached out to me after I announced the creation of my S.O.P.H.I.E Lancaster Foundation barrettes. She asked me to hold one of them for her before they sold out. See she was not only a supporter of the foundation but also a close personal friend of Sophie’s. On top of it she was getting married in a few weeks and wanted to wear it so Sophie could be a part of her big day.
“Thank you again so much for saving me one it meant the world to me to be able to wear it for my big day” – LeAnne
Doesn’t the barrette match perfectly with her flowers and their accessories?!
Congratulations LeAnne you look beautiful. I am honored that something I created could bring you closer to your departed friend. Especially on such a very meaningful occasion.
