Kicking off day 1 of Women In Horor Month with a killer deal!
Good for the whole month of February!
So I put the finishing touches on my latest zombie creation last weekend but then felt under the weather and was down for the count for a couple of days. So… I waited until this weekend to take a trip to the cemetery and got some good shots of it. Let’s just say, “No More Mr. Nice Guy” here!
Behold Zombie Alice Cooper…….

From my past posts you all already know that I have an amazing mother in law. Judy is always thinking of me and always supporting my craft. She is a thrifty shopper with a great eye for stuff that I can use for up-cycling into my latest creepy creations!
She knew I was on the look out for a female mannequin. My goal was to find one in decent shape and paint it to look like the Bride of Frankenstein. I had multiple visions on how I planned to use it once I got my hands on one and transformed it….
Well Judy and some of the family were on a flea market travel expedition and she came across a woman who had a “traveling mate” in her trailer and was willing to sell her. She brought her home and I could not have been more thrilled. Not only was she in excellent condition but she was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
This past weekend I took her apart and got to play Dr. Frankenstein and totally transformed her. She started off looking like this….
Then once I was done with her she came out looking like this………..
Goodbye Barbie! Hello Elsa!
The wig and necklace are actually ones I wore when I dressed as the Bride for Halloween a few years back. As you can see in the background I also painted her arms and legs to match. They look hilarious hanging from the ceiling in our basement. Which I guess is not as crazy as all the mannequin body part pieces that were all over the dining room before I finally got the paints I needed to start this project. My next step is wardrobe for her. I already have ideas for doing it on the cheap that are going to still look spooktacular!
Keep an eye here in my Eulogy (blog) for update posts on this project and many more! I got another one in the works and there will be no more Mr. Nice Guys left when I am done with it! 😉

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