Halloween 2020 Was a Scream!

0

What a great Halloween and Wedding Anniversary weekend for us. Despite everything going on in the world it was so nice to see the sun shining, feel the autumn breeze and take in all the fall colors surrounding us this Halloween.

I was also happy to be able to cross another character off my Costume Bucket List! The one and only Casey Becker aka Drew Barrymore in Scream. I know, I know.. I love the 90s what can I say ha ha.

The best part was I was able to talk my husband Frank into being my Ghostface……

See more of my makeup and costume art on the Skinned page of my portfolio website.

I also did an art drop over the weekend at Closet Collectibles! I restocked prints and also brought in some new items. This includes 2 new upcycled customized framed prints and art print PUZZLES! That’s right 80 piece puzzles are now available exclusively for Closet Collectibles shoppers! I even sold one while I was there so make sure you get one while they last!

Stay Spooky & Magical,

Boils and Ghouls…It’s Spooky Season! Which means.. now is the time to stock up on my creations at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Why buy what everyone else has at the franchised stores when you can buy one-ok-a-kind handmade creations that nobody else has, all while supporting an artist and a small business that gives back to the community and supports local artists. My zombie friends pictured here say “it’s a no brainer!”

Ghoulish Garments: Support Art Boutiki

0

I felt it only appropriate to support my printing partner Dan Vado aka The Big Kahuna at SLG Art Boutiki whose music hall, gallery and store in San Jose is currently shut down due to the pandemic.

He has designed some new shirts to sell online that will help benefit his small business. This one really spoke to me so I scooped one up to wear proudly. You should too!

Quite a few years ago I researched and looked high and low for a reliable t-shirt printer who would print custom 1 off shirts for me after poor quality control from a bigger manufacturer I was using. I wanted the best for my clients and I was determined to find just that.

I was pleasantly surprised and relieved when I came across Dan’s work online. A small business owner who was also actively supporting the arts and musicians in his community and was very interested in working with me to help me get my art professionally custom printed on garments for my clients. Win Win!

To this day I still love working with Dan and can trust that even across the country that my Ghoulish Garments are each custom made for my clients with special care and the results are top notch!

With that all being said, this also means that whenever you purchase a Ghoulish Garment in my Amazon shop that you are not only supporting myself as an artist but you are also supporting this incredible small business man that gives back to artists and musicians. And as you all know I am a firm believer in artists supporting artists!

Don’t forget if you have a photo of yourself rocking one of my wearable art shirts let’s see it! Share it with me so I can feature you on the Freaky Fanatics slide show of my portfolio site!

Stay Spooky & Supportive,
LDG Nicole
