Creature Feature: Returning to Housewife of Horror

0

I am very excited to hear from horror host Housewife of Horror. This week they will be airing My Son The Vampire and she will also be wearing another one of my Dead Girl Decay barrettes on the show!

This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.

As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!

So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!

Spitting Image: The Exorcist Was On..

1

So if you are a Scream fan you will read the title of this entry and finish it by saying…. “It Got Me Thinking Of You”.

tumblr_oxbn755knL1u4kolmo6_400One of the most iconic “pick up lines” ever to hit the screen and leaving most girls saying “What the hell?” yet still being completely ok with it. That’s because it was said by no other than Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich) shortly after crawling through Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell)’s bedroom window.

So that leads me to my latest portrait I am marking off my art bucket list. You guessed it. It’s called “The Exorcist Was On” and it’s dedicated to Skeet Ulrich and his portrayal of Billy and Ghostface in the 90’s iconic horror film Scream! This one is far overdue. I have been a fan of the original movie since the 90s and Skeet (as well as Luke Perry) are the reason I started to tune in to the TV show Riverdale. And don’t even get me started on how excited I was when they paid homage to Scream on the show and he came through the Cooper’s window! So enough about how much I love Scream and Skeet Ulrich. Here is the final split face portrait to show you just how much I love them….

Spitting Image: Chop Driftwood

1

Chop Top Bill Moseley TCM2.gifAnother well overdue portrait has been checked off my art bucket list. I have been a huge fan of Bill Moseley‘s ever since I was little and watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. The funny thing is I watched it with my family on Thanksgiving ha ha. And to top it off it was my Mom’s idea to rent it after someone tried to cut the turkey pretending to be Leatherface. I will never forget how funny it was when she spit her cheesecake out during a scene when Chop Top grossed her out. Sometimes I feel like I connect with horror movies because it brings me back to good memories spent with her. I miss cuddling with her on the couch and watching scary movies. Whenever she would get scared and jump she would then laugh about it afterward. She really introduced me to the genre and look at me now.

Bill Moseley (2)

I have had the honor of meeting Bill numerous times. He is such a character even in person. The first time my husband and I met him was in 2004 when attending our first horror movie convention, Flashback Weekend. He put his arms around us and laughed his creepy laugh in our ears. The photo is pretty priceless and I swear I can hear that laugh every time I look at it. I remember thinking, “I wonder what my Mom would think of me actually getting to meet Chop Top Sawyer and hearing that creepy laugh!” She was probably watching over us and laughing right along with the three of us.

As avid convention goers we have crossed paths with Bill many times since. And each has been just as memorable. I remember one time we had him sign our big Devils Rejects mugshot poster. He was impressed that we were able to get all 3 of them to sign it. “That Sheri is a hard one to get!” he said. Then I told him about how Sheri got us backstage at one of Rob’s shows for a Total Skull Meet and Greet and that the poster actually survived in the mosh pit ha ha. He was even more impressed. That poster is now framed and hanging in our dining room. Another time I was working outside a Haunted House as a zombie girl promoting a low budget horror film. He was a guest there meeting fans that were waiting in line and asked to take a photo with us. So got to add that one to my collection as well.

Well now that you have read my fan history with Bill, here is the art piece I finished inspired by him. I call it “Chop Driftwood” (catchy name right?!)……

Chop Driftwood Logo

I think the name says it all. I did a split face portrait of him as half Chop Top from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and half Otis Driftwood from House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. I would have loved to have been able to also incorporate Luigi Largo from Repo The Genetic Opera (as we all know how obsessed I am with that movie and have seen my art piece of Blind Mag) but I didn’t think it would be a good fit. Maybe a future piece? Either way, I am really happy with the way it came out and can’t wait to give it to him in November. And for his birthday week none the less!

If you are also a big fan of Bill and these characters, I have prints and custom made-to-order t-shirts available in both my Etsy and Amazon shops. Perfect for convention goers! Art prints make for unique items to have signed and the shirts are like nothing you will find anywhere. Stand out from the crowd!

Freaky Fanatics: Emily and Gabby!

0

Been having a rough couple of weeks with our cat Ichabod being sick and these 2 Freaky Fanatic photo submissions helped brighten up my days!

Jem Pizzazz Cornhole Bags Living Dead Girl Nicole

First is from Emily who commissioned me to make her a poster sized version of my “It’s Showtime Synergy” painting. It came out to be 48″ x 36″ which is the largest print I have done so far of my work. When she contacted me to make the poster she had a vision in mind. She wanted to make “corn hole” bean bag game boards. Jem vs Pizzazz. When she finished them she sent me a photo. She said her and her friends love them. So do I . How cool are these!!?? I want to play!! A shout out to MinuteMan Press in Frankfort for doing an incredible job printing this for me!

Maggie Tim Curry Pennywise Furter Living Dead Girl Nicole Print

Next up is a photo I received from my customer Cristie who purchased one of my “Penny Furter” prints for her daughter. Along with the photo came this message…

“This is a picture of my 13 year old daughter, Gabby, with her Penny Furter picture. She is a fan of both movies and Tim Curry, so this is perfect! We framed it and she has it hanging in her room above her bed. Thank you so much! She loves it!”

I am truly honored. Not only was the piece purchased to give as a special gift but the recipient loves it so much she has it proudly displayed above her bed. Thank you Cristie and Gabby. You ladies rock!

See these photos along with my other Freaky Fanatics on my official portfolio website! And don’t forget to send in your photos so you can be featured as a Freaky Fanatic as well! Every time I receive one it inspires me to create even more! So please keep em coming and I promise to keep creating!
