Dead Girl Decay : Jeepers! Jinkies!

0

Happy Autumn Equinox my Freaky Fanatics! I got a spooky fun treat for you today. Two new Pop Culture Icon Dead Girl Decay barrettes have hit my Etsy shop!

Inspired by my love of Daphne Blake (a past high school nickname of mine) and her ghoulfriend Velma Dinkley I give you “Jeepers!” and “Jinkies!” Fun and colorful wearable art with a touch of spooky cartoon fun!

The centers feature up-cycled plastic Daphne and Velma heads surrounded by a multitude of flower petals and feathers inspired by their iconic cartoon looks in Scooby Doo.

Perfect to wear for Halloween, Comicons or really anytime….these barrettes are limited edition (no one else will have one like you do) pre-made and ready to ship in my online Etsy shop. Love them but don’t wear barrettes? No problem! Many of my customers clip these to things making them unique additions to their home decor!

Like to shop in person and support a small local business at the same time? Then jump into your Mystery Machine and head on over to Closet Collectibles in Crete IL where these two barrettes will be available for purchase if they are not sold by the time I make my next art drop off!

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Dead Girl Decay : Game Over Man!

0

Spooky season is upon us and that is why I spent a majority of my weekend in my art studio working on commission orders. As most of the items I was working on needed time to sit and dry I decided to take the opportunity to make another Horror Villain Icon Dead Girl Decay barrette.

After creating my “Ugly Mofo” Predator barrette I knew I had to make another one inspired by their nemesis. I also decided to make Private Hudson proud and named it “Game Over Man!”

The center features an up-cycled Alien action figure head surrounded by a multitude of flower petals with each representing the color and feel of the Aliens movie franchise.

For those of you that are fans of the film this is a Limited Edition creation so there is only one pre-made and available in my online Etsy shop. It will soon be available to purchase in person when I make my next art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL. Love it but you don’t wear barrettes? No problem! Many of my customers clip these to things in their home making them unique additions to their horror and sci-fi collections and decor!

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Dead Girl Decay : Ugly Mofo

1

I was working on a handmade gift in my art studio over the weekend and got a vision for making another Horror Villain Icon Dead Girl Decay barrette.

This time I was inspired by the movie Predator. I call it “Ugly Mofo” (I think Dutch would dig the name).

The center features an up-cycled Yautja action figure head surrounded by a multitude of tropical flower petals with each color representing the heat sensory they use to track their prey.

For those of you that are fans of the film this is a Limited Edition creation so there is only one pre-made and available in my online Etsy shop. It will soon be available to purchase in person when I make my next art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL.

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Restocked at Closet Collectibles with new Display!

4

Over the weekend I did another art drop off/pickup at Closet Collectibles (Crete IL)! I was pleasantly surprised to find that they gave me a new display spot in the store and I could not be happier.

It has nothing to do with my love of built-ins (well maybe that’s part of it) but it has everything to do with it being a prime spot in the store that really showcases and protects my work! I really love it! 💜 

While I was there I picked up my Undead Doll Betty who was adopted on Etsy. Holly has now taken her place on display and is waiting for someone to adopt her and Teddy.

My “The Lovers. The Dreamers. And Me.” (of Jim Henson and Kermit) portrait prints also made their debut. While I was there I also re-stocked my sold out giclee art prints of my other Spitting Image portraits (which are now on the 3rd shelf pictured).

I am so grateful to Chris and Michelle for always thinking of and supporting me as their resident local artist at Closet Collectibles. Mother’s Day weekend is always a rough time for me so this really lifted my spirits. So blessed to be a part of such an incredible store ran by such incredible people. I can not recommend shopping there enough. And when you do, be sure to tell them..”Living Dead Girl Nicole sent me!”

Stay Spooky & Magical!
