Adopt The Undead: It’s Zombie Wedding Time!

4

I have been bouncing back and forth between life and the undead for the last few weeks after receiving a custom order to make some corpsified creations for an upcoming wedding. Being a Halloween (2009) bride myself I wanted unique things for my wedding that I could not find at the stores so I also commissioned artists to bring my visions to life. Being an artist, It was actually very important and symbolic for me to include handmade creations. Having been there and done that I also know what all goes into finding the right artist to bring your vision to life. So when someone wants to incorporate my work into their wedding I am beyond honored.

For this order I was asked to make custom zombie cake toppers for a blonde groom and brunette bride with the dominant wedding color being a burnt orange. I was also asked to make 3 zombie hand barrettes that they will be using to clip to things such as boutonnieres. Here is what I conjured up!

When I do a custom order I always send updates to the client on how far along I am in the creative process and when all is said and done I send photos of the creation when it is completed to make sure no changes are needed before I ship it out. Needless to say I was very happy when I got a response from the bride today that said…“The amount of detail is impressive!!! These are great!!!” 

You can see more of my handmade horror inspired prop decor on the Adopt The Undead and Remains pages of my portfolio site. And don’t forget to contact me if you want a corpsified cake topper (also great for anniversary and wedding gifts) or zombie hand barrettes (can also be made as pins) of your own.

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Adopt The Undead: Holly and Teddy

1

Excited to add my 7th handmade doll to my Limited Edition Undead Doll series!

This big-eyed, smiling cutie is Holly. As you can see Holly loves playing with her friend Teddy. She’s ready to fill your holidays with fear with her creepy grin and distressed, holly print dress and matching hair bow!

Like my other dolls she is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind and a unique piece of art that only you will own if you adopt her. She is available online in my Etsy shop and will soon be available to purchase in person at Closet Collectibles (Crete, IL) once I make my next art drop off (stay tune for that update).

Please note this is NOT a toy. This is an indoor decoration/collectible for adults to display and is not intended to be played with by children etc. The clothings and the stand are both a part of the artistic vision and are not removable.

See more of my corpsified creations on the Adopt The Undead page of my portfolio website.

Adopt The Undead: Custom Undead Cake Topper

0

These corpsified love birds will be shipping to their Bride and Groom counterparts this week!

I was commissioned on Etsy to make another set of corpsified cake toppers! Whenever I get an order for these they always make my heart skip a beat. Just knowing someone wants to incorporate my creations into their special day is such an honor. And being a former non-traditional Halloween bride myself I love that couples are doing what makes them happy and what represents what they are into and who they truly are. This time the order was for a couple who is getting married this Halloween and their main wedding color is going to be red.

When I do a custom order I always send updates to the client on how far along I am in the creative process and when all is said and done I send photos of the creation when it is completed to make sure no changes are needed before I ship it out. Needless to say I was very happy when I got a response from the Bride to be that said…“OMG they are awesome!!!” 

You can see more of my handmade horror inspired prop decor on the Adopt The Undead and Remains pages of my portfolio site. And don’t forget to contact me or reserve a custom order if you want a corpsified couple of your own. They also make great anniversary and wedding gifts!

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Restocked at Closet Collectibles with New Exclusive Item!

This weekend I did my art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Living Dead Girl Nicole with her art displayed at Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois

Betty my 50’s inspired undead doll and my Walk On The Wild Side portrait giclee print made their debut as well as another exclusive item I made just for their shoppers!

Exclusive as in this is another item that will not be available to purchase online but will only be available to buy in person at their store! A great way to get something unique, while shopping small, local and supporting an artist all at the same time.

This exclusive item is my Caged Cannibal Scary Fairies! They come freshly fed and ready for their new caretaker and can be hung up for display! A mix of my love for whimsy and horror all rolled into one creepy magical creation! You can see more photos on the Remains page of my portfolio website as well as a little video on Youtube.

While I was there I also re-stocked my sold out giclee art prints of my Spitting Image portraits and added some new one of a kind Dead Girl Decay barrettes to replace others that have sold and am already in the works of masterminding some more!

My husband Frank also shopped their wide range of horror figurines while I did my drop off. He picked up a They Live Rody Piper figure and the Flasher Gremlin figure we have been wanting to add to our collection.

In other words don’t waste your time at places like Spirit Halloween or big box stores for horror decor this spooky season. I for one witnessed Spirit Halloween’s selection and call it “same shit, different year”. Closet Collectibles offers way more unique items and supports their local artists! They also love to buy and trade for their non art related items. So if you are looking to get rid of something from your collection for something else this is the place is an all around win win! Not to mention Chris and Michelle are seriously the nicest folks you could do business with! Go show them some love and tell them Living Dead Girl Nicole sent ya!

Stay Spooky & Magical,
