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!

The Color of Things

A couple of years ago I discovered that I have Synesthesia – a neurological condition that causes different senses to be combined, rather than separate. A common trait of people with Synesthesia (synesthetes) is always perceiving letters, numbers, and words with certain colors attached to them. For example, ‘A’ will always be red to me, ‘B’ is brown, ‘C’ is yellow, ‘D’ is navy blue, etc. I also see colored shapes when I hear certain sounds, and perceive textures when I smell certain things. My sister also has Synesthesia and she is the reason I discovered my own. Up until that point, I thought seeing each letter as a color was normal. There are over 60 known kinds of Synesthesia and my sister has traits that I do not, such as tasting voices and perceiving numbers with personalities.

Most people with Synesthesia are creative and artistic by nature. And since this condition involves a lot of color, I thought I’d gather a collection of pieces with beautiful color palettes, and also include art by syesthetes as well. And even if you don’t have this condition, everyone loves color!

The following pieces are filled with many vibrant colors!

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!

Fantasy Cover – PulpComicsMgzn by XabzOnFire

When I was younger, I was never really into classic fantasy. I was strictly a sci-fi girl. But when I started dating my husband, I discovered fantasy could be really awesome. He played D&D, Magic: The Gathering, and played hosts of fantasy-themed video games. He also urged me to read some of the Dragonlance series, which convinced me there was room for both sci-fi and fantasy in my heart.

Though I’ve never played D&D, I’ve played enough other fantasy games to know what makes a good team. And when you’re going out to fight monsters, it’s best to have a party with you!

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.

The Finer Things

14 Nov

I love jewelry. I love bold, fun jewelry, understated, pretty pieces, and everything in between. There is a lot of geeky jewelry on Etsy, and much of it is of the fun and quirky variety, many of my own creations included. But sometimes I want to wear fine jewelry – something elegant that will stand the test of time. Luckily, there are artists on Etsy that have combined geekiness and fine jewelry, so you never have to choose between the two.

If you’re fond of dragons and fantasy, this ring should make you happy. It was created with a glass taxidermy eye and argentium silver.

Jewelsvine is one of my favorite shops. I have purchased from them in the past and still love my necklace. It was hard to choose just one item to feature, but I love this test tube necklace! Be sure to check out their shop for other awesomeness, like rocket lockets, skulls, robot kitties, and steampunk instruments.

I own a skull necklace from MichelleChangJewelry as well. She makes simple, elegant jewelry featuring skulls, foxes, hedgehogs, octopi and more.
