As you know, I did a lot of painting for clients recently and I was so happy when I received some photos from both clients showing off how they displayed the paintings in their homes.
The massive 3 piece set I called Equinox now fills what was a very large empty wall space in my Uncle’s home. Instead of separating the pieces they decided they liked the image so much (as a whole) they hung it like it was one very large painting. The great thing about this set is if they ever get bored of that look they can change it. It was made so they can hang it with as much space in between the paintings that it will still make one large image. They can even hang them on separate walls in one room and have 3 separate paintings that match. The possibilities are endless….
I also received this spooktacular photo of Play Dead on display in my other client’s home. I am honored to have my work among so many other amazing Tim Burton inspired pieces. It’s like Gabby has a little piece of Beetle House right in her living room!
See these along with my other happy customer photos in the Freaky Fanatic slideshow on my website. Have a photo of your Living Dead Girl Nicole creations? Contact me to be featured!
As you know, I love commission pieces and this last request I received was right up my alley. Gaby contacted me looking for a painting of Scraps from the Corpse Bride and Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas. As a fellow Tim Burton geek she knew I was the artist for the job. I finished the piece and sent photos to Gaby for her approval. I could not have been happier with her response…..
“Oh I love it! It’s perfect 🙂 The details are amazing! I can’t wait for it!”
Here are a few photos I took during the painting process…
And here is the completed piece, I call it “Play Dead”…..

Saturday we had a few people over for our annual pumpkin carving tradition. Thanks to Zombie Pumpkins for always making each year a success and giving us and our guests so many awesome stencils to choose from.
If you have followed my blog for many years or have checked out the Remains page of my site, you know that from time to time if a stencil I want to do is not available then I create my own. I have done Baby Firefly from House of 1000 Corpses, Lily Munster (before there was one) and even Pee Wee Herman. However, this year as soon as I saw the Christina Ricci/Wednesday Addams stencil (on the Zombie Pumpkins site) I instantly wanted to do it. Frank felt the exact same way when he saw “The Bow” (as Henry Rollins calls him) as Ziggy Stardust.
The entire time as I was carving I kept saying quotes from the movie. Such as “I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else” ha ha.
Here was the end results of how our pumpkins turned out…
And here is a shot of the whole group’s pumpkins together….
Did you carve pumpkins this year? What did you carve?
Just wanted to let my Freaky Fanatics know that I finally got around to posting 2 new Dead Girl Decay barrettes in my Etsy Shop. Both perfect for showing off your creepy cute side and both being inspired by the upcoming holidays (1 for Halloween and the 2nd for Día de Muertos/Day of The Dead). Speaking of the holidays. They are fast approaching. So make sure you act fast if you want them to ship and arrive on time!
Happy Glitter Jack can be purchased HERE and the Sugar Skull one HERE!
As always don’t forget I make custom pieces as well! I have a few more sugar skulls and jack o lantern pieces left if you want something similar to these but customized! Contact me for more info on getting a one of a kind piece made!
Frank and I spent last night with a couple of our friends carving pumpkins in our dungeon (aka our basement).
I carved Jareth the Goblin King from my all time favorite movie and Frank carved Angus from AC/DC
Luis carved Michael Myers and Kayle carved the Crypt Keeper. Thank you again to Zombie Pumpkins for another year of providing us with the coolest stencils!
This year starting in May I actually started to grow pumpkins from the seeds of the pumpkins we grew last year. This was my first attempt at ever doing this and it was actually pretty fun to see them grow. The vines grew pretty crazy in our little area (we have a condo with barely a yard). So I had to keep up with pruning and making sure they didn’t go into the neighbors patio ha ha. When it came to carving last night I couldn’t bear to cut my babies up ha ha ha. Plus the little one refuses to grow old. I call him Pee Wee…..our little rebel ha ha…..
They are going to remain uncut sitting on our porch as extra decor with a sense of pride ha ha ha
