Back in December I posted the custom corpsified cake toppers I made for a lovely couple that was having a Halloween wedding this year. Well the day has come and the newly married Mrs. just sent me this photo saying “The cake was a huge hit!”
I can’t get over how bloody delicious it looks and how well the cake toppers went with everything. Such an honor to be a part of someone’s special day!
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!!!”
Over the weekend I did another art drop off/pickup at Closet Collectibles (Crete IL)! I was pleasantly surprised to find that they gave me a new display spot in the store and I could not be happier.
It has nothing to do with my love of built-ins (well maybe that’s part of it) but it has everything to do with it being a prime spot in the store that really showcases and protects my work! I really love it! 💜
I am so grateful to Chris and Michelle for always thinking of and supporting me as their resident local artist at Closet Collectibles. Mother’s Day weekend is always a rough time for me so this really lifted my spirits. So blessed to be a part of such an incredible store ran by such incredible people. I can not recommend shopping there enough. And when you do, be sure to tell them..”Living Dead Girl Nicole sent me!”
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.
