Greetings, fellow lovers of Mortem :wave:

I go by my middle name Marianella, but as my friends like to call me, Mari for short.
My passion for the aesthetic of Gothic and the Victorian mourning era inspire me deeply, and help me to manifest my deviously delectable creations and also drive my humble musings.

It may or may not shock you to know that I have absolutely no formal training or education regarding fashion and design; I rely completely on my creative compass to lead me in the right direction!
Although the best I can hope for is inspiration rather than producing true reproduction pieces ;)
Yessir, I'm one of those self-taught types; but believe me, it isn't completely by choice. I hope that one day I'll be able to attend college and become a bonafide graduate!

For now, I hope you lavish in what I have to offer, be it words, pictures, items or whatever!

I currently blog about life as a 20-something year old goth in a pursuit of fashion, and handicraft bliss... and, of course, all the other little trimmings life offers along the way, please be at liberty to go forth and

Things that you should know:

:bulletblack: I currently do not accept commissioned/freelance work; I recently moved in with my husband, and I haven't quite gotten around to settling my little craft room so I can create more formally, and frequently. For now all I sell is premade and ready to ship; once they're sold, they're sold.

:bulletblack: What I do sell is available to anyone; international, local, continental... whatever.

:bulletblack: Certain osteological items, real bones and such in particular, may be prohibited to ship and/or buy in your region; please make yourself familiar with borders & customs before making any purchase from me either through private transactions on devart, my blog or my upcoming Etsy. I am not responsible for seized packages once I ship them.

:bulletblack: I had a previous account and shop that I closed in order to focus more on this one. I was previously known as Delectable Decadence.

:bulletblack: I do accept paypal and money orders.

(This will be continuously updated in case of any changes)


Madame-mari-mortem's Profile Picture
Mari "Mortem"
Artist | Artisan Crafts
United States
I was born in Alberta, Canada but moved down to Arizona when I married my husband.

I have absolutely no formal training in... well... anything (thus unemployed); I teach myself through books and a heck of a lot of internet research. I have a strong penchant for decadent esoteric Victorian inspired gothic romance, steampunk ingenuity, and biological curio. My favorite materials are faux and real consciously sourced osteological sundries, and the enigma and allure of black in all its tangible forms.
I don't expect that everyone should love my work, but I aspire to inspire the handful that do.

If you should like to know what goes on in my debaucherous mind, please, feel welcome to read my blog.

You won't be disappointed ;) ...
