This weekend I did my art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Betty my 50’s inspired undead doll and my Walk On The Wild Side portrait giclee print made their debut as well as another exclusive item I made just for their shoppers!

Exclusive as in this is another item that will not be available to purchase online but will only be available to buy in person at their store! A great way to get something unique, while shopping small, local and supporting an artist all at the same time.

This exclusive item is my Caged Cannibal Scary Fairies! They come freshly fed and ready for their new caretaker and can be hung up for display! A mix of my love for whimsy and horror all rolled into one creepy magical creation! You can see more photos on the Remains page of my portfolio website as well as a little video on Youtube.

While I was there I also re-stocked my sold out giclee art prints of my Spitting Image portraits and added some new one of a kind Dead Girl Decay barrettes to replace others that have sold and am already in the works of masterminding some more!

My husband Frank also shopped their wide range of horror figurines while I did my drop off. He picked up a They Live Rody Piper figure and the Flasher Gremlin figure we have been wanting to add to our collection.

In other words don’t waste your time at places like Spirit Halloween or big box stores for horror decor this spooky season. I for one witnessed Spirit Halloween’s selection and call it “same shit, different year”. Closet Collectibles offers way more unique items and supports their local artists! They also love to buy and trade for their non art related items. So if you are looking to get rid of something from your collection for something else this is the place is an all around win win! Not to mention Chris and Michelle are seriously the nicest folks you could do business with! Go show them some love and tell them Living Dead Girl Nicole sent ya!

Stay Spooky & Magical,

Adopt The Undead: Corpsified Kitty

0

I am so thrilled to finally share the custom order I have been working on. I was commissioned to make a ZOMBIE CAT! This a first for me but the client and myself are both very happy with how it turned out.

It took me a minute to get use to the fur application but once I got my own method down you couldn’t stop me. I was covered in fur and let me tell you fur and anything sticky is such a “fun” combination to work with ha ha.

I decided to make and add the rat for added effect (who infected who?) which was something the client did not expect and really dug.

I actually became quite attached to this creation. Maybe because its a cat or maybe because it was a new challenge that I accomplished artistically but either way it was bittersweet delivering it to its new owners and I am so glad they like what I conjured up. Goodbye kitty!

Want to see more of my corpsified creations? Visit the Adopt The Undead page of my portfolio page. Also don’t forget you can see many of them on display and available for purchase in person at Closet Collectibles located in Crete IL (right behind Smokey Joe’s restaurant).

Stay Spooky and Magical,

Boils and Ghouls…It’s Spooky Season! Which means.. now is the time to stock up on my creations at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Why buy what everyone else has at the franchised stores when you can buy one-ok-a-kind handmade creations that nobody else has, all while supporting an artist and a small business that gives back to the community and supports local artists. My zombie friends pictured here say “it’s a no brainer!”
