Announcement   Welcome to Lady of the Shadows. I upcycle items into one of a kind Day of the Dead pieces.
Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated in Mexico, certain areas of the United States and Latin America that takes place on November 1st and 2nd (coinciding with All Saints' and All Souls' days) focusing on coming together with family and friends to remember and pray for loved ones who have died. Altars are built for the deceased and are surrounded with candles, food, flowers, pictures and favorite items of the deceased.
I always have unpainted figures waiting for a custom request. If you are interested in a specific one of a kind custom piece message me and I can show you what I have in stock to work with.
Turnover for custom pieces will average around 2-4 weeks depending on the size of the project.
I now also scour my area for cute vintage items to ensure they go to a loving home.

I love the statuette itself of course, the work is beautiful. but I was feeling down when I ordered it because I didn't have the time or money to rebuild my altar in time after moving and resigned myself to having it for next year, and the fact that it arrived ON day of the dead meant so much to me. thank you!

About

Love to paint and shop.

I so fell in love with Dia de los Muertos and the folk art that I started drawing sugar skulls and even had one tattooed on my forearm. My husband brought me a small Mary bust and some acrylic paint and urged me to create my own DotD artwork. The bust and the paint sat in a drawer in my bedroom for almost three years because life (planning a wedding, having the wedding and then shortly after becoming pregnant and having my daughter) got in the way. One day on a while cleaning out my craft supplies I decided it was time to give it a try. Later that week I had painted a total of three Marys. So here I am. Still painting Marys and now adding other DotD inspired figurines to my repertoire.
I have always had a love for vintage items. Ever since I was a child I would (and still) go through my grandmother's house asking her about her glass and knick knacks.
