My Favorite Haunts

17 Apr

I’ve been a member of Etsy and DeviantART for a few years now, and have amassed quite a collection of favorite artists and shops. There are some that I like to visit periodically to see what’s new, because I simply love everything they create and can’t wait to see what they’ll have next. This week I thought I would share some of the artists and crafters I stalk (in a good way!) and maybe they’ll become a favorite of yours as well.

DirtyandDistressed is one of my favorite shops that I have yet to buy something from (eep!). They’re your outpost for the perfect clothing and accessories to complete any post-apocalyptic cosplay.

For the Kids

13 Mar

My son loves video games and geeky things and for Christmas he asked Santa for a gyroid from Animal Crossing. That’s not something you can pick up at WalMart. I ended up crocheting him one and he loves it. But not everyone can create obscure (and awesome) geeky toys for their kids. That’s why I love places like Etsy and Deviantart. They connect you directly with artists that are offering unique things you’re looking for or can custom make it for you.

If your kid is a geek-in-training, this gallery is sure to provide you with awesome creations they approve of. Many of these you’ll be tempted to buy for yourselves!

Go Bold

30 Jan

You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!

Anthropomorphism

Interest in anthropomorphism has become quite a movement. Specifically, animals with human characteristics. Anthro has its own category on DeviantART and a host of groups dedicated to it, including #AnthroCommunity, which boasts over 4,000 members.

Anthropomorphism is defined as anything displaying human characteristics that is not human. Like animals, plants, food, inanimate objects, weather, etc, etc. The first known example is a 32,000 year old German sculpture of a figure with a lion’s head. Anthro embodies many popular geek concepts, such as Furry, kawaii, and cartoon. I’ve found many different amazing examples and compiled them for your viewing pleasure.

Give Thanks for Geekery

21 Nov

Plush Turkey Drumstick by whimsyloveswit

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. The true meaning of this holiday, of course, is to think about all of the things you are grateful for and fortunate enough to have. I hope everyone considers this and gets to spend time with their friends and family. However, I think the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Thanksgiving is food. Lots and lots of food.

I’ve rounded up the most delicious looking, smelling, and tasting art I could find to ready you for your over-indulgence tomorrow.

Treasury Tuesday: Halloween Nostalgia

Welcome back to Treasury Tuesday!

This week’s selection is inspired by the lovely Halloween shopping trip I took with my family today. The air was nice and crisp and the leaves were absolutely beautiful. We picked up some supplies to make my daughter’s Jack-in-the-box costume and then she grabbed a small pumpkin to carve from the grocery store. It really took me back to all of the Halloween fun that I had as a kid, so I decided that this week’s treasury should be about Halloween nostalgia!
