Dolf Veenvliet’s (previously) creation is aimed at creating abstract construction forms. The pieces are 3D printed from the Makerbot Replicator 1, and thrive on serendipity of what abstract shape might be constructed. Each set contains eight pieces packed in a linen bag, and priced at $21.11.

Cats and wolves aren’t from the same family tree, much less werewolves, but you could find them some similarities. A group of cat breeders have created the Lykoi Cats, felines with a small crop of hair that makes them look like werewolves. Lykoi is a mutation of the shorthair cat, and does not grow a full coat of fur, including on its face.
As the creator of the Period Panties project on Kickstarter says, “Half the world menstruates, so why not have some fun with it?!” Fun it seems they are having, with the project already way above its funding goal and with plenty days to spare. The panties come along with a “Cramp Stamp” a temporary tattoo based off the design of the panties. While the Kickstarter campaign is running, you can secure a crap stamp and a panty for $13.
