I don’t have Facebook but I hope my Freaky Fanatics do! I just entered the Dare Fashion costume contest and need your votes to help persuade the judges to choose my submission.
In celebration of Halloween, the folks at Dare Fashion asked their customers to enter by taking one of their favorite Dare Fashion tops and transforming it into a costume. I have a few but decided to go with my favorite which is the Electra Top that makes me feel like a curvy gothic goddess. I call my entry “I Myself Am Strange and Unusual” and of course it’s inspired by the queen of teen gothic goddesses…Lydia Deetz of Beetlejuice.
So now I need your votes to show the judges that they should pick me as the winner! All you have to do is go to the direct link to my entry and click the vote button next to my photo. Super easy! When you are done, please share the link or this post to help spread the word.
So when I saw a post that Hot Topic was teaming up with We Love Fine for a Rick and Morty T-Shirt Contest my brain went into over drive with ideas. Anyone that knows myself and my husband know how much we love Rick and Morty. My first thought was I probably can’t enter because I do all my art with my hands and not a computer program. This is the dead end I run into quite often (that and you can’t enter unless you have Facebook). However these people are killer and are actually accepting hand drawn art! That alone was enough to get me to enter.
My main goal was to make the piece be very Rick & Morty with a spin from my creepy side. I knew if I did that it would really represent me as an artist. That is when it hit me… Scary Terry! Then from there I went for a modern day technology spin on a very popular horror movie scene and the rest is history.
If you’re a hardcore Nightmare on Elm Street and Rick and Morty fan you will understand the concept and also why I decided to call my entry “I’m Your Jessica Now Morty!” I sketched it out in pencil, outlined it in ink and then colored it with Prisma Color Colored pencils and chalk pastels. It was then scanned into the computer to submit it. I personally would rock the hell out of it as a t-shirt.
Now this is where my Freaky Fanatics come in. I need your help (again…I know, but us artists have to get exposure somehow right?). So anyways here is what I need you to do. I need you to go to my assigned contest entry link and vote for my entry and then SHARE the crap out of it all over social media asking your connections to do the same.
Here is the direct link to use and share:
Feel free to re-blog this post as well. The more exposure it gets the better! They have judges for this contest but they are looking for the public to also rate the entries to get an idea on who would buy the artwork concept on a shirt. It will weigh heavily on who wins. So please take the time to rate my entry and it would look even better if you left some supportive comment love on the entry as well.
Morbidly Beautiful Horror has announced that my Etsy Shop is in the finals for their #whodoyoulove best horror shop Instagram contest. I am up against some pretty big and popular shops (some I even own shirts from) but I am the only one who does handmade art so I hope it counts for something. I also think my work fits the name of their site quite well too.
You can vote 2 ways and both count. So please try to do both if you can!
1.) Go to any of the Morbidly Beautiful Horror contest posts at https://www.instagram.com/morbidlybeautifulhorror/ and comment saying @exorcist167x has your vote for the best horror shop and state what it is you love most about my work.
2.) Go to my Etsy shop and snap a photo with your phone of the creepy creation or art listed for sale that you love the most. Or take a photo of something I have made for you.
