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.

Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 5/18/12- Teja Jamilla

18 May

pirate tightsYo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.  Who wouldn’t want to be a pirate?  Life on the open sea, all the grog you can drink, and you get to wear awesome tights.

Teja Jamilla has found her sea legs and creates gorgeous tights to cover them in.  Fighting narwhals, bountiful treasure, a whole barmy pirate scene unfolds right before your one good eye.

If the pirate’s life is a little too dangerous for your liking, why don’t you check out Teja’s cute fawn and mushroom print stockings?  They are so adorable you may want to pilfer a pair for your own.

Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 5/1/12- PonyChopsShop

octopi shoesOk, I don’t know what it is with this painted shoe craze, but I cannot get enough of it.  For you ladies out there who love shoes, standing out, turning heads and octopi… look no further.

Pony Chops is the ultimate go-to shop for shoes painted with amazing detail and astounding cuteness.  Where else can you find high heels hand-painted with horned yetis?  Nowhere.

Or maybe you’re not a high-heel type gal.  You like the class and sophistication of a pair of leather brogues.  You also adore mushrooms in love.  Well aren’t you in luck?  Or maybe you have your own ideas of what would make some splendid shoes.  Contact Pony Chops, they take custom orders!

Treasury Tuesday-Party with The Avengers!

1 May

It’s that time folks, The Avengers movie is almost here! After such anticipation the release is within reach, oh, the joy! I’m not the biggest Marvel fan, much more of a DC girl myself, but I am actually really looking forward to this movie, and that’s saying a lot. As excited as I am, I won’t be seeing it in theaters at midnight. Nothing against The Avengers, I’m just not an opening weekend kind of person. Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean are the only ones special enough to get me into public that late without alchohol being involved. Well, maybe a wee bit was involved with the midnight Deathly Hallows Pt 2 premier, but something had to numb the pain!! Ahem. Anyways, the point being that some of us won’t be seeing this movie immediately. My goal is to have everyone able to join in on this geek occasion, without even having to leave their basement!

Now, I’m all  about geekery, and parties. So whenever there’s any sort of happening in the geek/nerd world, I use it as an excuse to throw an awesome themed partay! Although some of us won’t be seeing The Avengers in the near future, why not celebrate it? Perhaps you’ll love the movie so much you’ll want to represent it after you see it, or you can get a head start and stock up for the DVD/BluRay release! Whichever you choose, be sure to do it in style. I’ve made it pretty easy for you by featuring some if these awesome Avengers themed supplies. After all, what can make you feel more awesome than wearing and Avengers apron, grabbing a hulk cookie, and slamming down a drink out of a thor glass? Few things, I’d imagine. Very few.

 

Stay tuned for Foodie Friday, when our resident food geek will reveal some exciting new recipes fit for an Avenger!

Be prepared, and check out everything you need for a super gathering.

Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 4/6/12- CorsetWonderland

6 Apr

tardis skirtWaiting for the new season of Doctor Who can feel like forever, so let’s try to keep ourselves occupied by planning a big party for when the first episode comes out.  What could you wear to this exciting event?  Something that would attract any darling Time Lord, something that would scare off those annoying Daleks, something that would make a Weeping Angel blink.

Something like this gorgeous skirt from Rae at CorsetWonderland, your one stop shop for adorable Doctor Who skirts, bow ties and corsets that are all handmade and look incredible.  Or, if for some unknown reason you are not a big Doctor Who fan but would love to have a corset made to fit only you, don’t feel left out!  Rae also creates Steampunk, Lolita and Pirate corsets, just to name a few.

So stop moping around waiting for the next season of Doctor Who and go visit CorsetWonderland to get your own custom made Whovian wardrobe!
