Naomi Kizhner: Energy Addicts

Posted in design, jewelry, macabre with tags , , on September 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Naomi Kizhner has designed a parasitic series of jewelry. These creatures of metal and glass (in theory) feed off the energy of those who wear them via pincers that reach through the body into the spine where they draw upon electrical nerve conductivity.

The line will not be going into actual production (I’d say this is fairly obvious, but one never knows in this society. Most of us already encounter plenty of welcome parasitism from mass produced objects).

Starstuff Clothing

I am SUCH a sucker for galaxy print clothing (or galaxy printed ANYTHING I guess). Starstuff Clothing now has a kickstarter campaign to vastly expand their range of items and significantly lower the price.

The company designs T-Shirts, Dresses, Tank Tops & Socks that feature the natural splendor of the Universe itself. They only use real celestial images, and the result is excellent. Even better, the threads themselves are dyed in their process, so these products don’t contain the characteristic stiffness of some printed shirts (I’ve certainly ordered a few from other companies and been sorely disappointed by that!).

I really look forward to seeing the ladies’ t-shirts and dresses!

If you are into bold domestic expression, Beep Art might have something for you.

This was the image that brought me to their site (I am a sucker for mid century atomic design, though I’m NOT generally “bold” in a brightly colored wall sort of way):

These are some of the more eye catching, unique wall details out there, for sure.

They also make great retro inspired laptop/ipad/etc. skins.

Spine Vodka

Posted in anatomy, craft, design with tags , , on September 12, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Johannes Schulz created a vodka bottle with a 3 dimensional spine and ribcage running through it.

The product is intended to represent the drink “having a real spine to it.” But I think it’s a great design, no matter what the bottle contains.

You’ll be hangin’ out the washin’ on the Siegfried Line in style with these great “Bat Pegs” (those are clothes pins, if you misplaced your Anglican Converter.) No doubt a “Dana Wish List” item, and something we all need to liven up laundry day.

Dana says “go forth and look at CollowLily’s deviantART.” One should always heed the wishes of Beauty and Braiiins!
