Dead Girl Decay : Never Extinguish The Flame Horror Villain Icon Barrette

0

I have had one heck of a week both emotionally and physically and needed some creative zen time. So I decided to take what energy I have right now to focus on creating another Horror Villain Icon Dead Girl Decay barrette.

This time I was inspired by the movie Trick ‘R Treat. I call it “Never Extinguish The Flame” and it’s quite fitting for the Halloween, Spooky Samhain Season…

For those not familiar with the film, the character known as Sam punishes those who do not follow the rules to keep the spirit of Halloween alive.

Always give candy to trick-or-treaters.
Always wear a costume.
Never extinguish the flame of a jack-o’-lantern before midnight.
Respect the dead.

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. Some ask why I limit myself when I can make more and make more money but the truth of the matter is, I value authenticity. I want the buyers of my work to get a one of kind Living Dead Girl Nicole creation that no one else has!

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Restocked at Closet Collectibles with New Exclusive Item!

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

Living Dead Girl Nicole with her art displayed at Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois

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: 1950’s Betty

1

My Limited Edition Corpsified Dolls are starting to be even more limited. The ones I have in stock have been selling out with spooky season on the horizon. Needless to say this motivated me to make another one to give a lucky boil or ghoul the opportunity to adopt one of these unique and creepy fun creations.

I call this blue eye(d) beauty, Betty and she is my 6th doll in my Undead Doll series. Like my other dolls she is handcrafted to be one of a kind and no two are ever alike or remade. A unique piece of art only you will own!

Betty is a 1950’s inspired Corpse Doll complete with a sparkly sweater/cardigan top, poodle skirt, knee high socks, saddle shoes and a cute blonde high ponytail topped with a pink bow! She’s ready for the sock hop, the drive in or a date to the diner for a bloody good time.. just don’t mind the dirt, decay, blood and drool!

Please note this is NOT a toy. This is an indoor decoration/collectible for adults to display and is not intended to be played with by children etc. The clothes are a part of the artistic vision and are not removable.

Betty is an 18″ doll but with her bouncy high ponytail she is approximately 20″ and comes with 1 metal doll stand.

Betty is currently available to purchase in my Etsy shop online right now and will soon be available to purchase in person at Closet Collectibles in Crete, IL. I have some other creations up my sleeve before I make my next art drop off there so keep your eyes and ears open to my posts for updates.

Stay Spooky & Magical!
