Armor made from CDs!

Here’s a unique use for all those AOL CDs: armor!

CD Armor

Tom over at Pixelated Images took this pic at Anime Central 2007. I love the fish-scale look of the CDs, especially on the swords and shields.

Unfortunately he didn’t get any additional info on it (creators, number/source of CDs etc.) but he did get pictures of several other equally extreme costumes.

Some unusual action figures

B-Movie VictimsA little late for Christmas, but here’s a site with some neat, out of the ordinary gifts.

Shakespeare’s Den offers an unusual selection of gifts in the areas of theatre, writing, art, music, dance and film. There is everything from pen sets to the Screaming Scream Doll, but it was the Avenging Unicorn and the Horrified B-Movie Victims that I had to get as gifts this year.

Avenging UnicornWhile I had the B-Movie Victims sent directly to a friend who has moved away but I did get the chance to see the Avenging Unicorn, complete with three extra horns and a set of three victims. The victims are a mime, a cranky businessman and a new age lady and all are designed to be impaled on the horn.

Shakespeare’s Den shipped promptly and everything was well packed. Check them out for some unique gifts.

Office Sculpture


Cliff wrote a very amusing article on me about a year ago which I think some may find good for a laugh.

Office life can be dull and boring, but office artist Jon Emmons has discovered a creative outlet between meetings, business luncheons, and process mapping reports by creating sculptures out of every day objects.

Giant Drinking Birds!

So it appears I am not the only one who thinks these drinking birds are cool. Artist Daniel Reynolds has taken them over the top.

Reynolds conceived the idea in 1994. After extensive re-engineering of the original drinking bird, in 1998 Reynolds unveiled 15 new drinking birds at six and a half feet tall!

This enormous display piece was only ever shown in Germany; however it was received very well there. Hopefully someday soon someone in North America will pick up this exhibit. For now we will have to settle for the website.
