I have created two new Horror Villain Icon Dead Girl Decay barrettes this past weekend and I could not be happier with how they turned out.
As many of you know I am not a fan of remakes and reboots. Especially if they do not include the original cast or should be left alone entirely. However, based on the stash of goodies I scored recently and the ability to be inspired by both very different Pennywise clown costumes I made an “OG Hey Georgie!” barrette featuring the look of Tim Curry as Pennywise in Stephen King’s IT (which is the way I will always lean) and a “Hey Georgie!” featuring the look of Bill Skarsgard as the new look of Pennywise.
Like all of my Limited Edition pre-made creations there is only one of each of these available as of right now because I like everything to be one-of-a-kind. There is a possibility to make more variations of these but no two will ever be the same. These two are now available for purchase in my online Etsy shop and will soon be available to purchase in person when I make my next art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL. So in other words… once they are gone they are gone.
Did you know?: When not being worn my Freaky Fanatics love clipping their Dead Girl Decay barrettes to things to decorate their homes and more! They truly are unique pieces of wearable art!
Be sure to check out some of the other accessories I have made in the Dead Girl Decay section of my official portfolio website. Many of the themed ones you see on my site were actually commissioned by clients as custom orders. So if you are looking for something in particular hit me up! Most of all stay tuned and subscribe here if you have not already done. I have lots more up my creepy little sleeve for my fellow horror geeks!
Stay Spooky & Magical!
Every once in a blue moon I watch a horror or fantasy movie and something just clicks with me artistically. I don’t want to just add the idea to my art bucket list but I want to pick up the pencil and bring my vision to life right away. This was one of those exceptions.
When it was announced that Damien Leone’s Terrifier was added to Netflix in September I didn’t waste a minute to add it to my queue. I had seen pictures and heard about the movie but had yet to actually watch it. So needless to say I was excited I was finally going to be able to.
My face should’ve been hurting from all the smiling I did as I watched David Howard Thornton bring life to this mute creepy clown on my screen. Disclaimer: I blame my weird obsession with the circus and my love for 80s slasher films. Normal people probably won’t have the same reaction to this film ha ha. After my husband and I watched the movie I could not stop thinking about how badly I loved David’s performance as Art The Clown and wanted to draw him. I had an idea in mind already but I had other art projects and commission pieces to wrap up. But as soon as I had free time I started on the Art piece (pun intended). Pretty ironic too that I finished it in October.
I call it #SELFIE and it was inspired by Art’s 2 fun looks in the movie….
As I was drawing the left side, I kept joking around with the tagline from Maybelline. I kept saying things to myself like “Maybe he’s born with it? Maybe he’s just really good at scalping and skinning crazy homeless woman and then wearing them” ha ha. Yah…I had a lot of fun with this one.
If you’re also a fan of David Howard Thronton as Art The Clown in Damien Leone’s Terrifier then you can pick up prints and shirts in my Etsy and Amazon shops. You can see Art and the rest of my portrait work on the Spitting Image page of my portfolio website.
How would you like to own your very own piece of the undead? How would like to display it on your wall like a hunting trophy?? Look no further!!! Smiley is officially up for adoption! But be warned he is always looking to have some FUN!
Smiley is the 4th piece from my Limited Edition, Zombie Faux Taxidermy Line (wall hangings) that I have made. The 1st one was a blonde pinup girl zombie, the 2nd was a long-haired ghoulish zombie and the 3rd was a mental patient zombie! Might I add that Mercy the Mental Patient Zombie is also still up for adoption here! Smiley or Mercy can be hung on your wall or they work well displayed on a plate stand (not included but can easily be found for cheap online)!
Purchase them in my Etsy or Amazon shops and stop by the Adopt The Undead page of my portfolio to see the other undead creations I have made.
