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

0

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!

Creature Feature : Creepy Acres

2

I have been anticipating this post for quite some time. My husband Frank and I decided to do a little fan art couples project in tribute to one of our favorite online shows.

Anyone that knows me, knows that I have a deep love and appreciation for Jim Henson and when I was a kid I would choose a puppet show over a cartoon any day. I still will. I also blame Jim Henson for my infatuation with faux monster fur which I have on anything I can possibly find. This art project being no different. So top that off with my love of things creepy and unusual and you will see why I fell in love with Creepy Acres.

We first discovered Creepy Acres in 2019 when we attended Horrorhound Weekend. They had this awesome Sci-Fi and Cryptid section at the show featuring tv stars and guests who specialize in or are inspired by them. Of corpse Frank and I had to check it out. Little did we expect to find puppets, let alone cryptid themed puppets! The minute I laid my eyes on Max the vampire I had to have a picture with him and showed the guys behind the show my Count Von Count tattoo. They told us they had a show online and gave us some info on it. In passing we ended up sharing the elevator with some of the crew and got to meet Sam Squatch the star of their show who was on his way to meet and get a photo with none other than my idol Elvira. I knew right away this show was going to be right up our alleys. We streamed all the episodes on Youtube and were hooked. We have been in communication with them and fans ever since.

After re-watching episodes for the millionth time I got a vision that I shared with Frank. We brainstormed it and ironically when we didn’t want to go out and do the usual Valentine’s Day romantic mumbo jumbo he asked if I wanted to go supply shopping instead! Um…Absolutely! He knows the way to my heart. So that’s what we did. We took our time on it. Working on it as we could between other things and not to rush it. He did the hand sawing and sanding and I did the hand painting and fur application. We took it out to the woods to take some good photos of it and then mailed it off to Sam and his cryptid pals. We wanted to wait until they received it before I shared it here with my followers. The wait was worth it though, because I have a treat for you! Sam unboxed it on the show and here it is…

This video was just what we needed. We had been having Creepy Acres withdrawals because Youtube messed up their channel and they are in the process up re-uploading all their episodes. You can see their hilarious reaction to the nightmare they are going through with their recent ScrewTube episode.

Even more reason to go to their unboxing Youtube video and give them mad likes and love in the comments for doing this! It is beyond awesome and we are so incredibly grateful. As you all know I am all about “artists supporting artists” which is what inspired this creative vision to begin with. Ironically as cryptids, “we believe in them!” You can also comment and share their post of the art piece from their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. So share some creepy love!

Here are a few of the photos that we took in the woods before we mailed the package off. We made sure to wear our Creepy Acres and cryptid shirts! I even have a furry monster necklace on because when we do anything we are committed ha ha.

You can also see them on the Remains page of my portfolio website. This video will also be on my Freaky Fanatic Viral Video Playlist and listed on the Creature Feature page. You can also see this screenshot of Sam’s adorable furry face with the art piece in my Freaky Fanatic On Air Talent slideshow!

Stay Spooky, Magical & Creepy!
