Over the past month I have been working on some new Limited Edition Dead Girl Decay hair pieces to make available for pre-made/ready to ship purchases for the gift giving season. As you know, all of my hair pieces are one-of-a-kind in my specialty style… a touch of whimsical meets macabre! Here is a glimpse of the ones I recently conjured up.
Be sure to check out my Etsy shop to purchase what I have left remaining and don’t forget to contact me to discuss pricing and details if you are interested in something more custom. You can see a great example if you scroll down to my previous post and of corpse at the Dead Girl Decay page of my portfolio website. When not worn they make for great decor and have also been used to give a unique look to special occasions such as weddings, proms etc.
So even though I have already drawn Winona Ryder (as Mina Harker) and Christina Ricci (as herself and in tribute to us sharing the same birthday) I still have had them on my art bucket list because they have portrayed so many of my favorite characters and are two of my favorite actresses. There are two characters though that stand out from the rest and I have related to both of them and have loved them since I was younger…. Lydia Deetz and Wednesday Addams.
My original plan was to draw two separate portraits but after searching for reference photos I kept finding the same photos and so many of them had already been drawn. Some multiple times. I really wanted to do something to challenge myself as well as create something unique. I decided that since both characters have very similar qualities and traits why not try to combine them into one of my split face portraits.
So I present to you you my latest piece called “Kindred Spirits”….
The entire time drawing it I knew I wanted to call it this because I feel like if these characters crossed paths they would be dressing up as homicidal maniacs together, rummaging the cemeteries, trying to join the dead in the nether world and capturing sheets with no feet on film . And on top of it I secretly wish I could be a part of it.
Check out these beautiful photos I received from Beth! A customer who has purchased multiple Dead Girl Decay accessories from me. These photos show off how great she looks in the various ways she has rocked her glittery spider barrettes!
