Remains : MOFFINS are here!

2

I took my love of Jim Henson creatures (hence the cute monster faces) and mixed it with my love of the macabre (coffin boxes) and created… the MOFFINS!

They are 6″ coffin boxes made into monsters and come in different colors! Right now the ones in the photo (green, orange, purple and blue) are pre-made/ready to ship to the first person who buys them. I am also taking custom orders where you can specify the color of the monster’s skin, eyes, fur and how many teeth!

Here is a photo of the inside of the boxes…

Dead Girl Decay: Bridesmaid Freakshow

3

This has been quite the creative weekend. I have been in such an artsy mood. After completing my LeeLoo and Angelique portraits I have been itching to put down the pencil (temporarily) and get my hands dirty and full of glue gun burns.

My husband, Frank knows the way to my heart and how to talk me into going somewhere….. art supplies! So on Saturday he dragged me to the hobby store while we were out running errands so he could get Traxxas parts. While we were there he bought me a nice fresh v__287fbottle of liquid latex!  While I did start some new undead creations with it already, I am unable to show them to you just yet. They go through stages and are not finished. I am excited about them though and will post them as soon as they are done!

Frank and I are standing up in his brother’s wedding in April. I have been debating what I plan to do with my hair so that it doesn’t cost too much and decided to do what I do best.. make a hair piece! So we also stopped at another store and I got really lucky and found flowers that match the dress perfectly. Which I thought I would have more difficulty with because the dress is “guava” (not typically a color in my wardrobe or in my supply stash). Since there is no yellow in the wedding colors I kept to the colors of guava tones and white and hid any yellow tones in the lilies with layering. I topped it off with a beautiful silver and coral vintage cameo that I had in my supply stash (thanks to my Mother In Law who always knows when to spot the best stuff at garage sales). I am really happy with the way it came out. I texted a photo of it to the bride to be and she approves and loves it.

I am also excited because I commissioned Frank’s Aunt Bonnie to make me earrings for the big event. She makes jewelry and I own a couple pairs of her gorgeous chandelier earrings. Since I don’t normally wear guava/coral she made them in beautiful AB crystals! Look how beautiful they came out!

And the rest of the flowers didn’t go to waste. Not only do I now have stash supplies but it dawned on me that I could make a barrette to rock with my Sourpuss Clothing Sideshow dress!!wp_20170205_11_42_55_pro

Now this is a dress that I still have not warn yet. I got it on a steal thanks to my fashionista- deal finding friend, Heather. She saw it on sale and immediately thought of me. As some of you know already, I have quite the obsession with all things Freakshow/Sideshow/Carni/Circus and Sourpuss Clothing is by far my favorite clothing line. I love the dress but there are a few reasons why I have not worn it yet.

1.) My hair has been every unnatural color of the rainbow and all of them have been ones that have clashed with this dress ha ha

2.)  I didn’t really have any events to rock it to this past summer and when I did it was disgusting out.. muggy and gross.

3.) I don’t normally rock bright pastels so I don’t have much to wear with it and didn’t want to put the expense into buying say shoes I can only wear with 1 dress in my wardrobe. Everything I usually wear is either black, grey, lime green, purple, orange, fuschia, red etc. I have quite the macabre wardrobe ha ha.

Well my hair is black again, so I decided to take the first step by making myself a barrette that I could wear with this dress. I am now hoping I might be able to find a way to wear it to the bridal shower at the end of the month. Maybe my black Mary Janes will bring some of the black out in it. And with some tights and the right cover up I might be able to winterize it and pull it off. The trouble finding the right cardi or cover up is the way the top is cut. Hmmm…. Heather’s Pants Blog! Help! 😉

Creature Feature: Mutter Museum

2

philly mutter (4)The Mutter Museum in Philly was mine and Frank’s #1 reason for wanting to go to Philly when we took our road trip with Mike and Heather back in March. Knowing how excited we were to go there Mike and Heather even paid for our admission as an added thank you for Frank driving the 11 hours to get us there (yes our friends rock!).

Part of the reason I was so intrigued by this place is because anatomy was my favorite subject in art school. Then you add on all my own “fun” ailments, my love for oddities and anything remotely macabre and that pretty much sums things up. Needless to say when we went there I was mesmerized by the place. We are both still so happy we got to experience it in person. Recently on an episode of Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour show we got to experience it all over again. As we were watching it we kept saying “ohhh we were there! We saw that!” ha ha.

I had been following the museum for many years before getting to go there and knew that every year they put up their Mutter Tree for Christmas. Often people send in ornaments to donate that go with the theme of the museum. Well this year I decided to donate one of my 2016 Santa Claws Christmas Ornaments to the Mutter Tree! Well go and behold I opened this post on Instagram this morning and could not be more thrilled!

So thrilled it arrived in one piece and is now a part of this incredible museum’s holiday tradition!  See other ways my art and handmade creations have been featured and displayed on my official portfolio website! Also if you like this ornament, there are other versions of it available in my Etsy shop. They are one of a kind so once they are gone they are gone! Happy Holidays everyone!
