French artist Elene Usdin uses beauty with a touch of creepy for most of her work. I really enjoy her art only because my mind goes into twisted territory from time to time. No need to worry ,though- I’m current on my meds. Those stuffed legs are what’s NOT right. It looks like a curious case of the mysterious cankles. Then, you realize it’s just a stuffed leg. Being a Lego fan, the Lego machine gun is pretty sweet. After seeing these, I totally want yarn hair. I’m gonna have to give my Yaki-braids a backseat, because yarn is where it’s at, obviously. Check out more of Elene’s work here. Don’t miss the ladies sandwiched between mattresses. That will boggle your mind!.

Irina Shaposhnikova, who graduates from Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts next month, designed these wonderful knit creations. I love the sheer in the sweaters. It makes it look fashion forward and not dowdy. I love knitwear , but they tend to make me look fat, so I tend to stay away from them. However, I think these would look great on me. The hood is a great effect since you can also shoplift without giving away your identity. I like that. But you can’t really smuggle stuff under your sweater since it’s sheer. That’s a catch -22. I’d still wear it though. My cats would go to town on these sweaters, by the way.
