Freaky Fanatics: Sweet Dream Moments

0

I received some really awesome photos from one of my customers yesterday. Sabrina purchased one of my “Sweet Dreams” Robert Englund/Freddy Krueger portrait prints as a gift for her friend Jen. Her friend then met Robert and had him sign it.

The look on her face is exactly the way I felt the day I gave the original portrait to Robert.  I love the fact that she chose to have him sign my work over all the millions of Freddy photos out there. I know first hand that when it comes to meeting your horror icons you think really hard about what you want them to sign. So  I am truly honored to know I was a part of an experience she will look back on for years to come. And thank you Sabrina for being engaged with my portrait and finding it to be the perfect gift for your friend.

And thank you Robert for filling our nightmares with sweet, sweet memorable moments like these!

Hardcore Hearse Club Show 2016

5

Just wanted to share some photos from over the weekend during my 1st vending experience at the Hardcore Hearse Club – Hearses Show. I vended both Saturday and Sunday. It was a good thing I did because the heat was so uncomfortable on Saturday that I felt ill from it and had to shut shop down 2 hours early (show ended at 8pm and I closed down at 6pm). From what I heard I was not the only one. I did pretty well seeing I was there an hour earlier then the other vendors for set up and it was already almost 90 degrees at 10 am when we packed up the car earlier in the morning.

I was really happy how well my booth came together and got loads of compliments on it. My husband is such a god sent for helping me set it all up. On top of it taking most of it all down himself when I got sick later on. All day long he made sure I was doing ok, had enough to keep me hydrated, spraying me down with a water bottle and making sure I had a cold rag on my neck at all times. I love that man!

Hearse Show (1)
One of the main reasons I had to be there earlier then the other vendors is because we were also displaying Frankenhearse. Darlene was a doll and reserved us a special area and it worked out perfectly for unloading! We ended up using the back up tarp to block some of the sun and we were actually shaded by some trees with helped a lot. Having the gas station directly behind us for washroom breaks and ice/drink runs was also very convenient! At one point when I was starting to get sick Frank actually took me over there to stand in the beer freezer while Dad and Diane watched over my booth. They came out and bared the heat with us almost all day! Such troopers!

Hearse Show (8)

We made sure to put my new decal on the back of the hearse the night before and were so happy with how it looked.  Wilson Graphics never disappoints!

Hearse Show (15)

Despite the heat there were a lot of people there. I was surprised because of the heat but not surprised since this particular hearse show never disappoints and is one not to miss. Lots of hearses, lots of spectators, a decent amount of vendors and the entertainment went on as planned. Unfortunately due to the heat I spent most of the day on Saturday under my shaded canopy with cold rags on my neck and trying to stay hydrated (due to my health issues I have to be very cautious of it). So I ended up missing a lot of stuff going on that day and a few things that evening when we left early but it was better safe than sorry. I was mostly disappointed that I missed my friend, Ron Fitzgerald‘s Illusion act. I was just grateful that the hotel we were staying at was right across the street. When Frank went over there earlier in the day to check us in he cranked the A/C so it had been running in our room all day! That, a cold shower and getting a decent meal in me made me feel so much better!

One of the other awesome things about this show is they never disappoint when it comes to their huge raffle baskets! This year I donated my Tim Burton Framed/Decorated Print and Jack Skellington Dead Girl Decay Barrette! They put it amongst some other really cool items!

Hearse Show Donation Basket (1)

Sunday was so much more comfortable weather wise. The only issue we had was with the breeze which we used tarps to take care of the sides of the canopy and we were all good. I also laid my framed portrait prints down and rearranged my set up to accommodate for it. I refilled any gaps from sold items with back up items I had packed away.

Hearse Show (11)

We got the same spot both days. Also this shot shows Frank’s RC Traxxas Hearse that he parked near Frankenhearse. When it was not parked he was driving it around the show with my business card on the hood! Did I mention I how much I love that man!

Hearse Show (18)

We were also pleasantly surprised to find out that after we had left early the night before, that Frankenhearse had won a prize. We were voted 2nd place hearse for best of show!! Such an honor with so many amazing rides there! Here we are proudly holding our trophy!

Hearse Show (7)

With the weather being nicer a lot more of our friends and family were able to come out on Sunday as well. Dad and Diane were there with us all morning and then others arrived later in the day. It meant a lot to me to have everyones support at my first vending event. My sister in law, Melissa captured this adorable photo of my great niece, Violet who showed up rocking an Aunt Nicole original in her hair!

Hearse Show (2)

Our friend Cathy captured this great shot of Frank and I in my booth as well..

Hearse Show (10)

The best part about vending was all the awesome new people I got to meet that paid my table a visit! Some made purchases, some networked for future events and tons of people took my card to check out the rest of my work online. I am really looking forward to working with some of them in the future. If any of you are reading this… THANK YOU!

Below is a shot that the club received that includes a little girl who insisted her Dad buy my Zombified Clown Mask. I could not be happier that it went to her. She loved it and was spotted wearing it at the show! The 2nd is a shot I took of my very first vending customer! She purchased a Dead Girl Decay Skull pin to match her awesome Cheshire Cat tank! I did not get photos of each of my customers which I am now kicking myself in the ass for. However these 2 pics sum up the range of how great the customers were!

On Sunday since it was much better weather wise I ventured out of my booth and Frank and I decided to get some more Hearse Club gear. But we also got some really killer new things for the house while supporting the other vendors. We got a Frankenstein blanket for our living room and some Frankenstein themed glasses to display on the shelf in our kitchen.

All in all we were exhausted and it was a lot of work preparing for for my first show. The heat wave put a damper on things but I am still very happy that I chose to wait to vend my first show until now. So many have asked me to do it and it meant a lot that my first show was also an opportunity to support our awesome club!

Keep an eye on my Etsy shop for new items! I had made some things to stock up for the show. Some of these items are still available and will be added soon. If you were at the show and want to know if something you saw on my table is still available, feel free to contact me directly! As always I am always available for custom orders as well!

Freaky Fanatic: Zombie Christmas Campbell

Was visiting our friend Josh over the weekend and noticed he decorated one of my creepy creations that he has displayed in his home….

WP_20151212_19_27_39_Pro

No it is not the church! :)~

It’s the zombie head I made for his Mom a few years back. Today is actually the anniversary of her passing. So I wanted to wait to post this so I could do so in tribute to her. I always thought it was awesome that not Josh but his Mom came to me and asked me for a custom zombie creation. Like myself, she too was a big horror movie fan. She was the first one of my customers to ask for slobbery fang teeth! Making this piece unique for so many reasons. Seeing it on display in their home still makes me smile. Thank you Mary for believing in my work! You are truely missed.

Have a photo showing how you have displayed or used my artwork, promo stickers or wore my handmade creations? Contact me so I can feature them here as well as on the Freaky Fanatic Slideshow on my Official Website!

Freaky Fanatic: Ava as Kitty Cheshire

2

As you all know I recently posted about how I made a Kitty Cheshire headpiece for my goddaughter Ava. She needed it to complete her Halloween costume because she didn’t want to just wear cat ears. She had to have a hat that was just like hers. Ever since I gave it to her Dad I have been anticipating how she liked it and if it worked. Then I got this picture texted to me over the weekend and it made my heart smile. So happy to be a part of making her Halloween memorable.
