As you all know I had my own GoFundMe set up a few years ago when I was going through a major health crisis. If it weren’t for the generosity of others, I don’t know how my husband and I would have gotten through things both financially and mentally. I start my post off like this because I have been there and I know how hard it is to ask for help in a time of need. Which is why I am always trying to find ways to use my art to give back. That is why when I was recently contacted by my friend Stephanie over at Morbidly Beautiful about a benefit raffle to help a fellow horror artist who was badly burned and lost everything in a fire, I immediately jumped on board.
If you are not aware, and surprisingly as it may sound, the horror community is one of the most kind and generous communities you can be a part of. That is why I was not surprised when I heard I was 1 of 70 shops who have donated their handmade creations to help raise money to “Re-Animate The Horror Corner“! Stephanie and I both decided that my Yours Cruelly Elvira/Cassandra Peterson portrait was ideal for any horror fan and a print of that piece will be going to one of the lucky winners.
If you love horror this is the raffle for you. Not only are you able to win some really unique prizes but your money will go to helping a horror artist to be less stressed while she recovers health wise and also help her to get back to creating and doing what she loves. Watch this video to see all the prizes and how you can enter!
Stay Spooky & Supportive!
As a part of Women In Horror Month, the folks over at Morbidly Beautiful Horror are featuring women-owned “killer shops” along with interviews asking them questions about what inspires their work. Today (on my birthday of all days) they chose to feature mine and I am honored.
Please take a moment of your day to go to their site and read the interview. While you are there leave a little comment love for the website contributors who took the time to help spread the word about my work and support the genre that inspires so much of what I create!
See other places my work has been featured at by also visiting the Creature Feature page of my portfolio website!

It’s easy to enter on Instagram and you could win one of my Fleshy Frames along with some added surprises thrown in the shipment! Winner will be selected THIS Friday July 28th so get over there and enter!
As of yesterday Morbidly Beautiful Horror announced that voting was closed and that I am still one of the top 5 shops to receive the most votes in their Who Do You Love Horror Shop contest. The other 4 shops are incredible and to be side by side with them is a huge honor. The winner will be announced on Friday so stay tuned!
I want to take this time to thank all of my Freaky Fanatics who either took a minute of their time to vote on Instagram or if you don’t have Instagram shared the link with others to get more votes. I know your time is precious and I want you to know that the time you took to show others you support my work means everything to me. You never know what could open bigger doors for me from things like this and to be nominated in general by you guys is an honor in itself. I could not do what I do or be where I am today with my art if it was not for all of your support.
Thank you for showing the world the potential one girl can have. As an artist who hand makes everything herself it really is hard to compete with commercialized and big names but you guys continue to inspire me. I love you all!
And a big congrats to the other shops in the finals! I love all of your work and even own a few things from a couple of these shops. So when your not visiting mine please take some time to visit them as well.
Morbidly Beautiful Horror has announced that my Etsy Shop is in the finals for their #whodoyoulove best horror shop Instagram contest. I am up against some pretty big and popular shops (some I even own shirts from) but I am the only one who does handmade art so I hope it counts for something. I also think my work fits the name of their site quite well too.
You can vote 2 ways and both count. So please try to do both if you can!
1.) Go to any of the Morbidly Beautiful Horror contest posts at https://www.instagram.com/morbidlybeautifulhorror/ and comment saying @exorcist167x has your vote for the best horror shop and state what it is you love most about my work.
2.) Go to my Etsy shop and snap a photo with your phone of the creepy creation or art listed for sale that you love the most. Or take a photo of something I have made for you. Post a photo of it on Instagram with a caption tagging @morbidlybeautifulhorror telling your vote is for my shop and why. Feel free to hashtag your post #livingdeadgirlnicole Here are some examples people have already posted…
As always thank you for all of your support! It’s an honor to be amongst the finalist to begin with and that is all because of my followers who nominated me! Please share this link on all of your social media pages and ask your friends to vote!
