Perfect for the Victorian Horror Vamp:

This piece I had a hard time listing because plain and simple we all know what a big Bram Stoker’s Dracula fan I am. I was so tempted to keep it for myself ha ha. But I have decided to let someone else enjoy it. This was a vintage ivory cameo that I painted with enamel paints to look like Lucy Westenra. Complete with her flowing red hair,  seductive red dress and neck fang marks.

Perfect for the Pychobilly Halloween Queen:

With it’s black, green and purple colors, this piece will match the wardrobe of any psychobilly girl who loves all things creepy cute. It features a metal spider in the center whose body is made up of  green sparkly beads and rhinestones. The metal legs are wrapped in silver wire giving it that Tim Burton stripped look.

Perfect for the Vintage Colorful Free Bird:

If she is one with nature and likes things a little more bright and colorful, this piece is for her. The center features an antiqued brass butterfly accented in an array of sparkly colorful stones, ombre plum to olive green petals and blue feathers.

All of these are available in both my Etsy and Amazon shops. Want something custom made? Contact me ASAP to see if what you are requesting can be accomplished in time for the holidays. Everything is dependent on supplies and what is needed to make the item you want made.

Stay Spooky!

2

It’s been a while since I did some vintage, burlesque upcycled barrettes! I am feeling better and motivated! So I am happy to say I have 3 new custom, one of a kind pieces up in my shop all made from upcycled vintage jewelry pieces! I literally just finished them and they are all ready to ship.

All 3 are very different and can appeal to various styles. The first one features an upcycled piece that is very fae/fairy fantasy like. The middle piece a maltese cross with various shades of autumn like stones. The last features a very unique dragon cameo

The perfect accessory for that bombshell dress sitting in your closet. Looking to dress up that sweater and pants look for a special occasion? What about a fun hair piece to go with that Halloween costume your planning? These are also hot sellers among brides and bridesmaids looking for a one of a kind piece that will make a statement!

Get a closer look at them in my shop as well as on the Dead Girl Decay page of my portfolio site! Only 1 of each available!

Remains: Mannequin Transformation Complete!

4

SHE’S ALIVE! Elsa is finally ready for her first show this weekend. We will be taking her with Frankenhearse and Franky to the Hardcore Hearse Club Munsters Themed Show at Fables Frights to meet Butch Patrick and hang out with the club.

My final step of her transformation was to distress the wedding dress we found for her at the thrift store. I always have a blast distressing clothes and this was no exception. I will admit at one point during the process I did wonder whose dream dress I was destroying as I was taking a box cutter to it and spraying it down with a mixture of water and paints.

Then when it was all said and done I could not help but think I just created a new dream dress for Elsa. I couldn’t help but clap after Frank helped me get it on her and I saw the whole thing come together. I could not be happier with the way it all turned out.

Here is a side by side comparison…

The 1st photo shows what the mannequin looked like when my mother in law found her for me. The 2nd photo is after I painted her, added my wig and necklace and then tried on the vintage wedding dress we found at the thrift store. The 3rd photo is my final creation after distressing the dress and putting her all back together again!

I may still paint her nails black just for some added girly fun. The great thing is her hands come off so I can do that whenever I feel like it. ha ha.

Creature Feature Post By One of my Freaky Fanatics! Check it out and follow her blog!

Living Dead Girl Nicole and I have been friends for a long time. Having a talented friend like Nicole is beneficial for me. HA! She knows my style, and makes pieces tailored for me.

Nicole is a truly talented artist, and hand makes beautiful one of a kind pieces that she will customize to your taste and style. Although her work focuses mainly on the macabre, she has the vision to work outside of her comfort zone and focus on the needs of the client.

Nicole is skilled in many mediums, but showcased are some of the beautiful hair pieces she has made for me over the years. I’ve worn her large head pieces to several weddings, and always receive many compliments.

Remains: 1962 Aurora Dracula Model

0

So remember that box of Aurora Universal Monster models my husband brought home for us to reconstruct and bring back from the dead? Well we finished another one…… Dracula.

This is how it was when we got it….

This is how it looked after I cleaned it, sprayed it with a primer and started to paint it….

FOTAB1B

And this is how it looked after I finished painting it and my husband played Dr. Frankenstein and put him back together. I then did a few paint touch ups and then he did a nice spray laquer over all of it.

And here it is displayed in our dining room next to the Frankenstein one we finished earlier this year.

We gave the Creature from the Black Lagoon away as a gift to one of our tattoo artists so we plan to be on the look out for another one for our own collection. The last one we have in the box to reconstruct is the Wolfman!

This barrette that I made is now owned by one of my best friends, Heather.

The middle features a vintage owl brooch sitting on a flower petal and accented with black, brown, turquoise and peacock feathers!

What I love most about making these Burlesque Vintage Decay Barrettes is that they are unique and no two will ever be the same. The barrette or pin is always made with the central focus being a vintage piece of jewelry that is one of a kind.

Check out more of my Dead Girl Burlesque Vintage Decay Barrettes both on my official website and in my Etsy shop! Bookmark these links because I plan to make more of these as I find more vintage pieces of jewelry and once they are gone they are gone!

Stay Spooky!
