Spooky WEARABLE Art Roundup For Halloween!

It's not quite October yet, but I am LOVING all the Halloween goodness flooding my feeds. So to help get you in the spooky spirit, too, I thought I'd do a themed round-up this time - and with an emphasis on WEARABLE art. Because let's face it: even if we're out of wall space, there's always room for more jewelry, pins, and accessories!


 Let's kick things off with Bill Robinson of Flim Flammery, and his delightfully cartoony raven pin:


I love this style, and the the bright pink shadows! 

Bill also has lots of great art prints, including this not-so-monstrous giant squid:

Shop more at his Etsy shop here.

*****

My friend Dennis Hansbury makes spooky art year-round, but his latest mini paintings are FRIGHTFULLY good:

This one's my favorite. Plus it's so small Dennis is talking about making it a piece of jewelry!

I dig it.

I think you guys will like Dennis' cat skull stickers, too:

 Head over to his Etsy shop for more, then follow Dennis on Instagram to see when his newest mini-paintings go on sale.

*****

This Jack & Sally necklace is the first thing that made me fall in love with Lisa Penney's work, and I've been following her online ever since:

You can still buy it as a necklace OR an extra blinged out brooch on her site!

Lisa also makes these incredible "Brooch Babes," & I want them all:

They're hand painted with fabric skirts and customized accents, and you can wear them as a pin OR display them as art, because they come with  their own little stands! Eeee!

It's almost impossible to pick a favorite, but I especially love the Haunted Mansion girl in the purple dress, plus this one inspired by the Hat Box Ghost:


Check out Lisa's online shop for these and LOTs more of her art, including t-shirts! Then follow her on IG to see the new stuff as she makes it.

*****

More for you Disney fans: Le Petit Mouse is another of my favorite makers, and her Halloween offerings this year are blowing my mind. I'm pretty sure these are the most beautiful Mickey ears I've ever seen:

 Both the ears and the center bat have a color-shifting holographic finish that is absolutely spell-binding. (Get it? :D)


She's also making Zero pins with a similar ghostly finish!


 

 And THEN she has a Haunted Mansion Bride pin in a couple different styles - but each one hides the same secret: 


 Her veil hides the axe! Now that's some killer style.

You can shop her current inventory on Etsy now, but be sure to follow Le Petit Mouse on Instagram to see her newest products as they're released! (She posts a lot of videos to show you the way the light moves on these pieces, which is incredible.)

****

I've been meaning to introduce you guys to Commetra for ages now: she's a German artist who hand beads horror pins, and I've never seen anything quite like it. Some are too spooky for me, but here are a few of my favorites:

This one's based on Annabelle, the haunted doll.

Lady Gremlin!

JEFF GOLDBLUM!

I highly recommend scrolling all the way back through Commetra's IG feed, because there are SO many good ones. She posts a lot of videos, too, to show off the sparkle and her progress as she goes:


Check her Etsy shop to see which pins are still available (though note they average between $200-$400), then give her a follow on Instagram to see the rest of her incredible work! 

*****

Willow Works Studio is another one I've wanted to introduce to you guys for a while: she sculpts tiny creatures in shadowbox frames or wall-mounted plaques, but that description doesn't do them justice at all:

Here's her latest cuteness. (I KNOW, RIGHT?)
See how she attaches the clouds so they seem to float around the frame? I love that.

Another stunner. This one gives me all the grabby hands!

 And here's a sweet pumpkin kitty under glass.

These are just ones she's made in the last 2 weeks, btw, so DEFINITELY go see the rest of her work on Instagram. In fact, you'll forgive me for including one NON Halloween thing here, right?

Because you have to see this. Ermergersh.

Go follow Willow Works Studio on IG now for more floaty pastel eye candy, and to be alerted for her Etsy sale, since these sell out fast! 

*****

If all that's all way too cheerful for you, then here's Megan Lara's Wednesday Addams sticker as a palate cleanser:


:D

*****

I've shown you Nancy's Fancy Fruits work before - I think it was her Little Shop of Horrors wreath? - but she ALSO has Audrey hair clips:
 

They come in all different colors and flowers, too!

She also has some retro Halloween designs up now:

 Please note the size of that styrofoam head. This thing is HUGE.

Here's my favorite, a retro black cat headband:

 And oh yes, IT LIGHTS UP.

Go shop the FancyFruits Etsy shop for lots more, plus you should follow Nancy on IG, where she just showed off a custom Swamp Thing tiara that is so fabulous I can't even:

I love the dangling greenery!

***** 

Hmm, I really should wrap this up at some point, but I have so many ghoulish goodies to show you! Ok, Ok, just one more. This one YOU can't wear, but your favorite couch or chair can:
 

This is a book pillow: a squishable version of your favorite tome, handmade by Shanon of Brassington Hollow! She has lots of classic titles to choose from, but this being the season and all, you KNOW I'm going for...

 THIS ONE.

(Amuck! Amuck! Amuck!)

But wait, there's more! Not only are these gorgeous plush books, every one lets you open the front cover and read the first page

 Whaaaat. Jaw, DROPPED. 

This is so dang cool! Head over to the Brassington Hollow Etsy shop to see the rest of her titles currently available - including Dracula!

*****
Nope, hang on, I have one more:

LaliBlue Shop is FILLED with all new Halloween necklaces and pins right now,  and ohhhhhhh, you guys. Just look:


This flying witch can be a pin or a necklace, and has inside layers to give it depth!

 There's also one for Sleepy Hollow:


 Plus a cute lil' pumpkins & ghosts, oh my!

I keep finding new favorites, so just head over to LaliBlue's Etsy shop to see the rest.


I hope these made you shriek with fiendish delight and helped put you in the spoopy spirit of the season, guys and ghouls. Also my apologies for putting such a strain on your bank accounts. ;)

Now, let me give away some FREE art to make up for it! I tried to pick the most Halloween-ish pieces I could from my give-away board, so your choices ARE:

"Stay Puft," 8X10 signed print by Dennis Hansbury

- OR - 
"Cute As A Button," 8X11 signed print by Nathan Szerdy

Now, CHOOSE THE FORM OF YOUR DESTRUCTOR!! Er... prize. I mean "prize." 

That's right, tell me which of these two you want most in the comments, and I'll announce my two randomly selected winners in my very next post! 

Happy commenting!

UPDATE: The give-away has ended, and my two winners are JCY & Laurel G! Congrats you two, and please e-mail me your mailing addresses!

If you like these art roundups and want to help me keep doing them - not to mention the give-aways & all that international shipping - then you can always toss a few dollars my way through Paypal! Whether it's a one-time tip or a monthly donation, every tiny bit helps, so thank you, truly. MWAH.

  5. One small correction in regards to those remarkable pins - that's not the Jeff Goldblum version of 'The Fly'. That's the 1958 version of The Fly (the one with the famous "Help me" scene - and of course, Vincent Price stars as the brother of the poor scientist that becomes 'The Fly')
