If you always wanted Willie Nelson, Bob Ross (“happy trees”), Pee Wee Herman and the Royal Tenenbaums to star in your own finger puppet show, then you’ve come to right place. Check out these finger puppets by Abbey Christine. She’s got all the details right, down to the grey braids on Willie and the ‘fro-stache-beard on Bob Ross. These are things you whip out during that last excruciating hour of work at the cubicle. I’m sure she can do custom work, in case you always wanted finger puppets of Prince and the New Power Generation. I mean, that would be really cool – Prince, Mayte, those 2 chicks in the ‘Cream’ video, and all the other 30 band members. Right?!

Artist Erika Simmons latest work is called “Ghost in the Machine” and that is exactly what it is. The ‘machine’ of the cassette tape is transformed into iconic, mostly dead (‘ghost’), legends using the innards of the cassette tape. That is pretty clever and steps up to a new level of awesomeness. She also uses old movie reels to recreate movie legends like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. I remember when I was a kid (by kid , I mean last week) I used to dissect the inside of a cassette tape and make ‘facial hair’ (and other hair) and act a fool. Basically, all those Color Me Badd tapes, Martika tapes and Bell Biv DeVoe tapes took on a new life as strings of beard, mustache and arm pit ‘hair’. At least for a few minutes. Anyway, at least Erika is putting it to good use. I wonder if she has a Prince one… that would be rad in my dining room.

Wig and Hair extraordinaire, Charlie Le Mindu created a lip-shaped wig for his Spring 2010 collection. It could look obscene if flipped sideways. I’m not even gonna go there! I like how there are 3 pairs of sunglasses. It reminds me of that statue in Soho, NYC with 8 pairs of  boobies. The other wig is more than a wig, it’s a fuping mask – Prince’s My Name is Prince style!  That was my jam back in the day! My name is Prince ’cause I am funky! I’ll spare you the lyrics even though they’re embedded in my brain until I die! Plus, I know you know them already. So, check out Charlie’s website– it’s really cool, especially, with the New Jersey  mafia housewife as a reoccurring character as the pages load.

Also, Check out PuppyCatMeow‘s awesome custom headband/ hair bow made by the delightful Tressa the Hairdressa! She does custom work and has a great section of non-custom cool stuff for hair. You may contact her for any wig/hair creations at puppycatmeow (at) hotmail.com ( make sure you put ‘hair bow ‘ in the subject line)  . I LOVE my HAIR BOW! Although, I’m not kookoo for Lady Gaga, that hair bow is the bomb! Thanks, Tressa, for making this for me!

I used to like ThreeAsFour when they were doing angel wing shoulder bags. However, there collection this Fall is just straight up weird. The only thing I like about this collection are the cut pants in the third photo. Those are something Prince would totally wear. ThreeAsFour’s designs are something of another world , more spacey than anything. But, it’s not the designs or cut that make this collection bad, but rather the colors and fabrics. Perhaps fabrics not used frequently by ice skaters would have given this collection more depth.
