Hardcore Hearse Club Show 2019

0

Lily Munster Rain Day.gifSaturday was our Hardcore Hearse Club‘s big annual hearse show at Brauerhouse.  Despite it being a rainy day the show was still a big success with lots of people coming and going throughout the day into the evening hours. But then again storms don’t scare us strange and unusual folks!

It was great to see familiar faces who came out specifically to support us. As you know I have been working endlessly on creating and getting my inventory ready and Frank has been working hard at getting Frankenhearse running smoothly and looking sharp! By the time the show started, we were exhausted. At the show, we were exhausted and after the 2HyvfAfshow, we were even more exhausted ha ha. So to have our friends come out to support us means just as much if not more then the sales I make at my table. It’s like my favorite episode of The Office when Pam decides to do the art show and Michael Scott comes out and supports her. I literally cry EVERY time I watch it. I know exactly what it feels like to be afraid but still, put yourself and your work out there. And how much it means to have people you care about come out and show they believe in you.

I was vending solo this year (my volunteer partner in crime had to go to a wedding) but I was kept busy with all of the people who visited my table. It was great to hear “oh wow you made this?” or “you drew this?” and to know that so many of you chose to purchase some of my art or handmade creations vs. other things people were selling that you can get retail at the store or online. It speaks volumes! So many of you purchased art prints this year and it has really got me itching to pick up my drawing pencils because when life gets in the way, it’s the people like you that keep me inspired!

Here are a few shots of my table set up. This year I was between 2 other vendors who I befriended.. of corpse!

The incredible dress I am wearing is from my all-time favorite clothing line Sourpuss Clothing! As soon as I saw they had a GREEN and WHITE HEARSE dress I knew I had to have it. Not just for the show but because it totally matches our Frankenhearse! I even wrote to the company and told them I really wanted to wear it for the show and they made sure it got to me on time! This dress is gonna get a lot of use at future car shows!

And speaking of Frankenhearse.. here are some shots our friends took of our beast outside on display during the show.

And last but not least, here is a great Freaky Fanatic photo posted by Ashley who purchased one of my “Friends Til The End” portrait prints at the show and gifted it.  So awesome to see how much he loved it!

I am super stoked to announce that both myself, my husband Frank and my Sweet Dreams portrait were all chosen to be featured in the Summer 2019 issue of Gore Noir Magazine. The magazine did a tribute to Nightmare on Elm Street and us being huge Robert Englund fans, we could not be more honored to be a part of it.

Adopt The Undead: Isn’t She.. Pretty (Deadly) In Pink

0

As promised I have completed another undead friend that will be joining my Two-Headed Bride and Evil Queen dolls at the upcoming Hardcore Hearse Club Show. This one, however, is quite the corpsified cutie in her pink floral dress, matching purse on gold chain, fancy sun hat, and pearl necklace.

You can’t help but smile looking at her. I also hope it makes you smile knowing you now have three chances of owning one of my limited edition dolls! Like the other two, this doll will first be available for purchase at my vending booth at the Hardcore Hearse Club show on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs! And like the others, she will not be duplicated making her a one-of-a-kind creepy creation! 

See more of my handmade undead friends on the Adopt The Undead section of my online portfolio. Spread the gore!

Adopt The Undead: Off With Your Head!

1

I had so much fun creating my corpsified 2 headed bride doll that I have been inspired to make more. This one is inspired by my love of Evil Queens. It meshes my love of horror and fairy tales together and comes complete with a helpless victim! It’s like the Queen of Hearts and Elizabeth Bathory all in one!

This limited edition doll along with her helpless victim will also be making their debut at the Hardcore Hearse Club show that I am vending at on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs! And remember no 2 dolls I make are ever the same. These are made from hard to find supplies and materials (a lot of them being vintage) so they literally cannot be duplicated! 

See more of my corpsified creations on the Adopt The Undead section of my online portfolio. And stay tuned! I have another doll already in the works and she is pretty deadly. Spread the gore!

Stay Spooky!

Adopt The Undead: Here Comes The Brides!

2

Since my first two limited edition corpse dolls have been adopted, it was well overdue that I make another one. Since two heads are better than one I decided to take it up a notch after finding some killer supplies that got my creative blood flowing.  These ladies are waiting for their Mr. Right and it appears they have been waiting a long time.

This limited edition doll will be making its debut at the Hardcore Hearse Club show that I am vending on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs on buying it! No two dolls I make are every alike or duplicated. So if you get your hands on one, you are getting a one of a kind creation!

Stay Spooky!
