‘Free Your Beard’ advertising campaign from razor company Schick was obviously intended to encourage people on the path of getting rid of their beards. We’ll say they missed the mark, and missed it good. Apparently, a beard is an animal uncomfortably sticking to your face, and one you would like to get rid of.
There was a time when Steampunk was super hot, and you could see all things Steampunk make rounds of the web. It may be past its prime for the moment, but Steampunk as art is here to stay. The sculptures here aren’t essentially Steampunk, though the influence is clear. Made by French sculptor Alain Bellino, the sculptures are often made by transforming old items into various shapes.
Whether you prefer the hacking and slashing style of Westeros, or the succinct water dance of Bravos, you need a sword in your hand. Since you don’t want to slash anyone with your sword either, it is better to give up on the Valyrian steel, or steel for that matter; foam is where the action is. The latex weapon is safer, and you could put it to good use in LARPing, reenacting, and roleplaying.
As the houses of Westeros war, they haven’t forgotten the importance of sports. Since the Football/Soccer world cup is the flavor of sports for the moment, it is absolutely necessary the houses and characters from Game of Thrones get uniforms to play the game.
BugJuggler the robot is the next big thing that will make circus jugglers look like the noobs that they are. This robot is massive; standing at 70 feet tall; and it’s built for singular purpose, that of juggling cars. The gigantic bot will pick up a car, throw it in the air, and catch it again. We suppose it could do the juggling with any car model that ever existed, but it seems partial to the VW Bug; hence the name.
Lords and Ladies of Westeros can keep playing their little game all they want. When all is said and done, the houses will fall before their true lords, the Pugs of Westeros. It’s difficult not to swear fealty to these pugs; they look pretty good and very much comfortable with the part they play.
All you need to do is take a good, hard look, and you realize the Soccer World Cup logo is actually a facepalming dude. It seems this matches Captain Picard, but there’s hardly a resemblance, except the facepalm of course.
These bird inspired shoes take up the mantle of going from a tad strange to a whole new level of weird. The range starts with shoes that have slightly weird shape and bird claw-like heels. Then the range progresses into shoes that look increasingly like a bird, until you run into a shoe where you would feel like you’re shoving your foot into a taxidermied bird.
How do you make a mountain bike special? You make one out of gold. This one is handcrafted and overlaid with 24K gold. Since that alone is not opulent enough, the mountain bike has a customized seat with brown alligator leather, a logo made of 600 black diamonds and 500 golden sapphires, and a gold covered water bottle. The gold plating of the bike alone took 800 hours to complete. Take this bike on your next expedition into the wild, and watch Chupacabra turn green with envy. The solid gold mountain bike is priced at $1 million.
Finally, tiaras that are fit for a princess, more appropriately, a Disney princess. Eclectic Charms rendered and designed these tiaras inspired by Disney Princesses. They look quite classy and bright, good enough to go with the princess look. The designer is hoping that Disney itself, or some other source will take an interest in the designs, and take them to production.
