Dead Girl Decay : New Pop Culture Barrettes

0

I really enjoy going treasure hunting with my husband at flea markets, garage sales, antiques stores and collectible shops etc. This little hobby of ours is actually how I ended up being so blessed to have the owner of Closet Collectibles ask me to put my art up on display in his store.

Whenever we go out I look for things I can upcycle into art. Lately I have been looking to make some new Pop Culture inspired Dead Girl Decay barrettes and I succeeded to make 4 new ones!

I call them “I’ll Be In My Room”, “Moi”, “There Is No Try” and “I Am Vengeance”….

Like all my Limited Edition pre-made creations there is only 1 of each of these because I like everything to be one-of-a-kind. I personally am drawn to what is unique (pun intended) and try to give that back to others with my creations. It is why when I am looking for something in particular or want something different I do so by supporting other artists or small businesses. Who wants the same thing everyone else has at the store when they can have something unique that no one else has and is handmade with the hands, heart and soul of an artist. Especially when they are passionate about the subject matter.

These 4 barrettes here are now available for purchase in my online Etsy shop and will soon be available to purchase at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL. to give people the option to purchase them in person. So once they are gone they are gone.

Be sure to check out some of the other accessories I have made in the Dead Girl Decay section of my official portfolio website. Many of the themed and pop culture ones you see on my site were actually commissioned by clients as custom orders. So if you are looking for something in particular let’s talk!

What pop culture icons do you want to see me make into Dead Girl Decay wearable art next? Leave me a comment and I may just “make” that happen (pun intended.. yet again).

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Dead Girl Decay for Luau Date Night

0

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.

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!

Stay Spooky!
