Creature Feature: Returning to Housewife of Horror

0

I am very excited to hear from horror host Housewife of Horror. This week they will be airing My Son The Vampire and she will also be wearing another one of my Dead Girl Decay barrettes on the show!

This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.

As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!

So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!

See more ways my art has been featured on the Creature Feature section of my portfolio website!

Xmas Turnaround Times

0

It’s that time of year again. Halloween is over (waaah) and before you know it Christmas will be upon us. So this is just a friendly reminder that if you want to order any of my art shirts for gift giving to keep in mind turnaround times. Each shirt is custom made to order. They average 2 weeks to produce and get shipped out once the order is placed in my Etsy or Amazon shops.

Living Dead Girl Nicole’s art shirts are Sid Haig approved! 🙂

I am also already getting orders in for custom Dead Girl Decay barrettes and inquiries for other custom creations, so if you are looking for me to handcraft you something unique for a gift, make sure to reach out to me ASAP so we can discuss your vision. Most custom items need time for ordering supplies and then additional time to actually make your vision come to life.

Stay Spooky!

Freaky Fanatic: Sam

2

I absolutely love when people reach out to me to customize my Ghoulish Garments. I often get asked to add the title of the art piece to the design because people tend to like the catchy titles that I give to them.

I was contacted by Beckie to do just that with my Barbie Eat Your Heart Out (Jennifer Tilly/Tiffany) piece. She had previously ordered the print and came back and ordered the customized shirt. Both were for her awesome daughter, Sam (also an artist) who has now become a big fan of my work (honored). She recently sent me this photo of Sam and it made my day! Apparently, Sam wears it all the time! How cool is this? Complete with Tiff leather jacket and all……..

My customers are seriously the coolest people on Earth. See Sam along with all my other Freaky Fanatics on my official portfolio website! And don’t forget to send in your photos so you can be featured here with all the cool folks who support artists!

Dead Girl Portrait Decay: Necklaces!

3

I worked hard this weekend to bring you 9 new, one of a kind items for purchase in my Etsy or Amazon shops. These are portrait necklaces handmade by yours cruelly…..

20180304_101023.jpg

Each portrait was printed on plastic, hardened and then coated in resin to preserve the image. I wanted them to be unisex so I attached them each to ball chains. Since these are handmade, there is currently only 1 necklace of each piece available so get one while they last!

And stay tuned! More necklaces of my other portraits to come soon! So if there is a specific portrait you would like to see as a necklace that is not available yet, please comment on this blog with your feedback!

Stay Spooky!

Dead Girl Decay: Custom Star Wars Greedo Barrette

1

I love return customers who ask me to make custom themed pieces of wearable art. I can’t name the client here due to gift giving for the holidays but he has given me permission to post it so I can share it with all of you.

The client contacted me asking me to make a barrette for a Star Wars fan who loves the character Greedo. My creative mind went from super excited, to brainstorming, to ordering supplies and then to creating. This was the end result…

Greedo Star Wars Barrette By Living Dead Girl Nicole

The client and I were very happy with how it came out. Now he has a one of a kind gift to give during the holidays that you can’t find at any store. The person receiving the gift will have a unique piece of wearable art that no one else will have (because even if I am commissioned to make another one… no 2 will ever be exactly alike).

If you are looking to have a custom themed barrette made please contact me. You can see more examples of my Dead Girl Decay creations on my portfolio site. Feel free to also browse pre-made ready to ship items in my Etsy shop! Lots to choose from for gifting!

Dead Girl Decay: Gift Guide For Unique Woman

0

It just got easier to do your holiday gift shopping for the unique women in your life! I just finished making 3 new Dead Girl Decay Barrettes that would make for wonderful gifts. All available now and ready to ship!

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:

WP_20171126_13_57_48_Pro

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.

Get Your Orders In For Ghoulish Garment Gifts!

0

I just wanted to remind everyone that my Ghoulish Garments can take up to 2 weeks to produce and ship. This is due to the fact that each one is created individually and goes through a quality inspection check from my printer. This assures that you receive the best product possible. So if you are looking to give a unique, wearable art t-shirt as a Christmas present I highly recommend ordering them now to assure they arrive to you on time for holiday gift giving.

gg

There are currently 38 designs to choose from in my Etsy shop. If you prefer to shop via Amazon I have added quite a few designs on there but have not gotten them all on there quite yet. So if you are looking to see ALL the designs that are available I highly recommend going through my Etsy shop. Remember to contact me before ordering if you need a specific size, style or prefer a different color fabric then pictured in the listings. I can often customize these based on what is available through my printer. I have even had clients ask to have the title of the art piece added to the image.

Stay Spooky!
