So here are some cool and weird stuff that I’ve been meaning to post about separately but decided to throw all the strange and unusual into one post. I know, it’s like one huge bizarre post but trust me it’s better this way- get the crazziness out of the way!

-Anywho, I think the most peculiar one is the Oven Lounge- whoever made that has a bounty on his head from Betty Crocker. Sh*t’s gonna get real when she shows up with an electric mixer, rubber gloves and a a tub of lard at his front door. I don’t even know where I’m going with that one so let’s get on the next one.

-Rubber Duckies are cool especially ones with tea leaves up their whoo-has. Ha ha.

-The Inner Beauty shirt is definitely a cannibal’s dream menu. Just add Chianti and fava beans. Yeah, so I necessarily wouldn’t wear that.

-Plug and Socket ring is a nice alternative to those cheezey broken heart necklaces. Except it seems the plug has the upper hand in most violent situations.I’ll take the plug.

-Check out the cool street art on Mercer St. in NYC – although it’s probably hidden under the snow and ice right now.

-Ride the skeleton bike… perfect for causing car accidents and freaking out small children and the elderly. The head and arms move when you make a turn.

Voila!

Canada-based Monster Kookies on Etsy sells these charming monster brain muffins, cakes, dental cufflinks, and industrial hearts. I think the industrial heart is pretty killer for that special Valentine. It’s like a robot heart! The dental cufflinks are pretty grody unless you’re a dentist and want to scare small children. Although, it’s not as creepy as these. I can really appreciate the details in the monster brains- all the bloody glaze and all. And the peppermint earrings are great, but beware of small children ripping them off your ears for a tasty delight! Check out  Monster Kookies for more cool stuff.

If you have a pair of old ‘Ho’ shoes laying around and it doesn’t reek too bad of feet and cheap perfume, then this might be a brilliant DIY project! Or you can let  Giddy Spinster do the honors. Nothing says elegant and nature lover like a stiletto planter. Grow your own personal cactus plant in a defunct stiletto to remind you of your heydays an untouchable female….

So, really, this sounds like a cool idea only if the cactus plants were rosemary because I would perch that sh*t right on the kitchen counter. Call me demure.

Check out the other works of Giddy Spinster including a mascara wand art piece, blow dryer and bookends. Just as long as you don’t mind the smell of feet, I suppose.

I discovered works by Onch Movement at Los Angeles cosplay/art cafe, Royal T. Jewelry with a small slab of meat inspired by Lady Gaga’s meat dress at the MTV Music Awards are available as a bracelet or necklace. I personally wouldn’t wear this just because I think it’s sort of gross, but if you like the meat look, but don’t want to reek of rotten flesh, then this is for YOU! But if I had to wear it, I would wear it to a zoo, naturally. The crocodiles would shoot me  a “bitch, please” look. The California condors would be all like, “guuurrrl, did you NOT see ‘The Birds’?”. And the lions would be like, “Mmm, appetizer” (because I’m small and petite).

Anyway, I’d advise you not to wear this around a pitbull. Check out Onch Movement and their other stuff. I threw in a whipped cream and cherry ring for dessert.

American artist Robin Barcus Slonina latest project is making a dress sculpture for all 50 states. The first of the bunch are New York ( trash bag dress (I can’t forgive her for that!)), Nevada (casino chips dress -sounds about right although, I’d add a fannypack to make it pop), Maine, (pinecone dress (imagine the little bugs crawling!) and Wyoming (willow dress- which should have been NY, because it could look like the bodies floating in the Hudson River after a mafia spat). I threw in the rest of the photos of her work like a feather duster dress (I would totally dust the house wearing that), beachball dress ( from the 99 cent store aka “that store with a lot of typos and effed up cheap stuff “), and sponge dress ( are you sponge worthy?). Check out her blog for more everyday crap turned couture.

Designer Kobi Levi came up with these outrageous shoes guaranteed to cause mass WTF looks on the street. So, if you’re wearing one of these pairs of shoes on the street and you hear a loud crash, pat yourself on the back for causing an accident. Anyway, I have to say these are super creative, especially the decapitated blow-up doll shoes in the second photo. I think I would actually wear the bubble gum heels. The dog shoes are out of the question just out of respect for Mr. Marmar and his posse. And the double boot must look freaky on. Reminds me of the cover of that Philip Starck book with the head on backwards on his own body. Freaky!

I stumbled upon this store on Etsy that writes the jokes by itself. Let’s take a gander, shall we?

Photo above:

“Necklace made out of hazelnuts, felted wool, goat hair, guitar string, silver.”- $300 by Art by Winona

Translation:  Necklace made out of found objects at the bottom of a 1996 Ford Escort trunk after a skanky weekend at Burning Man.

This is a felted whoo-ha for sale. Because we all need a replica of our whoo-ha sitting on our dressing table to remind us what it looks like. The bead gives a nice touch of herpes simplex, possibly caught during that skanky weekend at Burning Man.

You can choose any stage of venereal disease ( I mean, color) that suits your taste. My personal favorite is the blue-ish purple whoo-ha. That must be a replica for those strangling their va-jayjays with g-strings day in and day out. Or it belongs to a Smurfette.

And the venereal disease theme echoes through the rest of Art by Winonas Etsy shop with this polyp-y, green pottery. I love when a collection comes together full circle!
