Fanmade Friday | Queenie-Pocket Full of Posiez

I met Queenie at the Haunted Mansion Art Show at Halloween Town in June.  Actually, I stalked her down after seeing her pieces on exhibit.  I fell absolutely in love with her version of the Tightrope Girl and just had to meet the artist! Now I want you all to meet her, too!

Tell us about your yourself… your work

I am the artist and creator of Pocket Full of Posiez™ and have been a staple on the LA spooky art scene for a number of years.  Since I was a young girl, I’ve always dreamt of one day being an artist and making my own line of toys and sharing my vision of black and pink stripes with the world.  Now I finally have found my niche as a playful gothic doll maker, painter, and digital artist. I love painting in acrylic so much and it was so exciting to be able to paint one of my characters inside the mansion for the Halloween Town show! One of my dreams as an artist is to have a painting inside the Disney Gallery, how cool would that be?! :)

You can find my characters, as dolls, paintings, and on various handmade merchandise in eclectic stores worldwide. I’m currently working on my 3rd limited edition doll, the deadly cute Delilah. She is a pink and black cutie with her skull topped cup cake – guaranteed to melt your heart when she is released in late 2010 – early 2011.

I also do a weekly internet live on cam chat show called QueenieTV with my boyfriend Hideousboi on ustream. We’ve been on for 2 years now talking about various topics. We end up talking a lot about Disneyland since we’re there all the time.

Would you say the Haunted Mansion influenced your artistic style?

It is definitely up there as an influence. It’s not so much the style of the mansion as the idea of haunting things being so lively.  The graveyard scene is another favorite. Despite being dead, they still know how to have a good time.  The Haunted Mansion is dark and spooky with enough of a twist of humor that makes it non-threatening, that’s what I strive for in my art and my world.  I still get giddy every single time I ride it.

Was the tightrope girl your first Disney inspired art piece?

Yes it was :) I’ve wanted to do disney art for a VERY long time, but I really wanted to establish my own style as an artist first.

Can we look forward to more tribute pieces in the future?

I’ve been thinking about more pieces that I would love to do.  I’ve always loved the tea party cemetery scene.  I’d like to do other Disney tribute pieces as well. The Evil Queen especially!

Do you remember your first ride on the Haunted Mansion?

I think I was about 6, I remember being terrified but loving it. The stretching room amazed me so much and actually believing it was stretching!

Who is your favorite character in the mansion?

My absolute favorite is the tight rope girl. The colors in the portrait are all my favorite and I love her outfit. It wasn’t until a couple years ago that i started identifying with her. A girl on a tightrope with a crocodile waiting to gobble her up. There is so much to be said with that picture. That’s why in my version, she turns the tables. That croc didn’t have a clue what he was getting into trying to threaten her. *giggle*


I wish I had taken more pictures of the art show, but due to certain space constrains and other restrictions, I barely got any good pictures of the art on display (as evident by the awfully cropped picture of Queenie’s “A Ghost Will Follow You Home” painting).  But I’m thrilled to have come home with a copy of Queenie’s Tight Rope Girl on canvas, signed by the lovely Queenie, herself.  Isn’t the expression on the girl’s face just perfectly mischievous?  But my favorite details are the tiny skull and crossbones in the striped background.  So stinkin’ cute!  Thank you, Queenie, for sharing your talents with us and for your wonderful art!
