About the Dead Girl

Artist Nicole (Birmingham) Garcia AKA Living Dead Girl Nicole has been doing art since she was a young gelfling. Walking in her Dad's artistic footsteps and learning skills from him at a young age, she knew her passion for creating ran deep in her blood. As she got older she began to realize her admiration for the strange and unusual could also be her inspiration.

When she was little she would enter and win almost every coloring contest imaginable but was especially proud of the time she won tickets to one of her favorite places... the circus! Even more so when they presented the winners with their prizes in the ring! So proud, that her Dad kept that winning piece which she still has today. When she was not coloring she was the type of child that would be day dreaming of the day when her "I Wish" would call on Jareth to take her away to his castle beyond the Goblin City or when Pee Wee would get her letter and invite her to his Playhouse in Puppetland. During playtime she would often use her markers to change her doll's blonde hair into different colors of the rainbow and when her friends would talk about wanting to be ballerinas (she tried it and hated it) or growing up to look like Barbie she was the one that wanted to be Jem (even though she couldn't carry a tune) and grow up to look like her Dad's cardboard cut out of Elvira.

Nicole uses her creativity to work in various mediums and has become known for her portrait drawings, wearable Dead Girl Decay accessories and her creepy corpsified creations. She also enjoys just about anything that gets her creative blood flowing as long as it allows her to stay true to who she is as an artist. She continues to be drawn (pun intended) to finding the beauty in the odd and macabre and lives her life still hoping that the mythical worlds of Jim Henson and Tim Burton may actually still turn out to be real one day. A dusting of their magical inspiration has inspired many of her creations.

Nicole can often be found geeking out and networking at horror movie and comic conventions where at times she gives back to those who inspired her work by gifting them her original pieces. She then writes about these incredible encounters in her blog for her "Freaky Fanatics" (clients and followers) to enjoy.

Nicole is a prime example that no matter how sideways people may look at you or the subject matter of your art, there are no limits to what a creative mind can do if you stay true to who you are!

Additional policies and FAQs


Please feel free to contact me here through Etsy or use my Contact page on my art site:

For all custom horror prop creations, original portraits (not prints) and Dead Girl Decay accessories I require the buyer to pay 1/2 down as a non-refundable down payment. This assures me the buyer is serious and I can begin to research and purchase the supplies needed to create.

The buyer will pay the remaining balance plus shipping when the item is completed and is ready to be shipped. If the buyer decides to cancel the order during the creation process or on completion of the item, the down payment will not be refunded. It will pay for my time and supplies. In other words...serious inquiries please.

When it comes to custom items, I send photos to the buyer when I am close to being done with their creation. This allows for the buyer to let me know if anything needs to be changed or added. I ship the item once the buyer confirms they are happy with it and have paid the remaining balance due.

Please note: if you commission me to replicate something that has already been sold in my shop or I have made in the past please allow for slight variances. Sometimes supplies need to be ordered to replicate the item and might not be from the same supplier. All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical which makes the item unique.


All shirt orders are made to order. I work with a printing partner in California who takes my artwork and then professionally DTG prints the shirts for me. I thoroughly researched printers before choosing my printing partner and chose the one with the best quality control procedures to make sure my customers are getting the best and highest quality item. Because of this, it can take up to 10 days for each shirt to be printed. Once the shirt ships I will be notified and tracking information will be relayed to the buyer. Please allow additional time for the item to ship.

If you see a shirt listed in my shop but wish to have it made in a different color shirt or even a different style (tank top, long sleeve, women's fitted, youth sizes etc) contact me for availability.

Customer tend to get a kick out the names I come up with for my art pieces and I have gotten requests to have the title of the art piece added to the shirt design. I am here to customize the clothing items to be just as unique as you are so don't be afraid to reach out to me in a convo and ask before purchasing. I can set up a custom listing just for you!
