Tuesday’s Treasury: Bizarre and Awesome

4 Jun

I was looking through my favorites list on Etsy recently and thought, “Wow, I’ve favorited a lot of weird things.” I’ve always been a lover of strange things, and I think it’s great that places like Etsy exist so sellers can share their strange creations with like-minded people.

I’ve created a treasury of some awesome oddities from my favorites list, perfect for the discerning weirdo…

Tuesday’s Treasury: Guys and Ghouls

7 May

The first time I heard a psychobilly song was on a Geico commercial of all places. After that, I sent away for a Th’ Legendary Shack*Shakers cd and have been in love with that type of music since. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies, Halloween, and creepiness in general, so it was easy to love other aspects of psychobilly subculture as well.

If you’re a fan of zombies, tattoos, and retro fashion, you might fall in love with it as well. Check out what these amazing Etsy sellers have made!

Uncommon Objects

10 Apr

There are plenty of traditional forms of art out there that can be used to make awesome and geeky creations. But the artists featured this week have thought outside the box and transformed common, everyday objects and tools into items to help you geek out your living space in an unexpected way.

I never thought of looking for Cthulhu on a spoon, but here he is!

I’m a huge Fallout fan, and although I wouldn’t want my house to look like a Vault (talk about claustrophobic!), this light switch cover is too awesome for words.

There are some unique lamps out there, but this industrial/found object lamp is certainly at the top. It’s made from iron pipes and a vintage skull vodka bottle. And the rotating faucet is the on/off switch!

Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 1/31/13- Twisted Sister Arts

31 Jan

cat eyeIt is sometimes believed that evil eyes can bestow curses upon others.  As spooky as that may be, I found some that are pretty gorgeous.

Jill Lawrence of Twisted Sister Arts hand paints beautiful evil eyes and then secures them in intricate wire settings.

There are a few in the shop that I have my eye on, go take a look today!

Art Dolls

Inari Foxes: Platina by Santani

Inari Foxes: Platina by Santani

I’ve never been much of a doll girl. Dolls used to bring to mind frilly pink dresses, golden curls, and fragile, delicate faces. That was until I discovered art dolls. That term is used to represent a wide range of figures and mediums, but is usually a sculpted and/or plush art piece meant for display. After discovering all these geeky art pieces, I won’t think of dolls the same way again, and I doubt you will either.
