I am very excited to announce that I have partnered up with one of my favorite places to shop…. Closet Collectibles! This is the place my husband and I frequent during our treasure hunting adventures and on one of our recent visits they offered me a special place to display and sell my creations in their store. This gives you Freaky Fanatics a chance to now see and purchase my artwork up close and in person without waiting for me to vend my next event.
Closet Collectibles is a family owned, small business located in Crete IL that focuses on everything you could imagine collecting and for all ages! This includes stuff for us big kids who still enjoy a memorable toy from their childhood or an action figure that was discontinued that you still can’t live without (yes I am speaking from experience). People travel from all over to come to their shop because their variety and staff are incredible and their inventory is always growing. Each time you visit there you are sure to see or find something new and never leave empty handed.
Here is a sneak peak of some of my items currently on display in their store….
Shopping with Closet Collectibles means you are supporting a small, family owned business that is not only passionate about what they do but also believes in this local artist. So the next time you plan your next treasure hunting adventure make sure to add Closet Collectibles to your list of stops and also follow them on Facebook for inventory updates every Wednesday!
Don’t forget to tell them Living Dead Girl Nicole sent you and make sure to adventure through both floors of their amazing inventory! You can thank me later!
Another portrait crossed off my art bucket list. This one is inspired by Kristy Swanson because I am a sucker for an original and well as we all know she was the original “Chosen One” as Buffy The Vampire Slayer in the 1992 film.
This one has been done as another one of my split face portraits. The left side representing Buffy’s everyday cheerleader self. The right side being her vampire ass-kicking self! Complete with her high school dance updo and black motorcycle jacket. Which ironically enough Kristy Swanson actually rides motorcycles.
Are you a lover of originals and all things Buffy The Vampire Slayer too? Then make sure to grab one of my prints and/or t-shirts now available in my Amazon Shop!
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”.
One 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….
Prints and shirts are now available in my Amazon shop! Get yours and then share with fellow Screamers!
