Mysterious Stranger

Posted in absurd, animation, candy coated nightmares, surreal, video with tags , , , , on May 2, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

This rather horrifying chunk of stop motion surrealism was hidden in the recesses of my mind until my wonderful friend Casey reminded me of it (thanks, Casey!)…

Cannot type/talk due to severe illness (all words courtesy of voice software or kind typing helpers)…I read and appreciate all comments…Apologies for not being able to respond.

Strap a sausage to your nose and enjoy the art of Victor Castillo. What fun! The images are so familiar, and no doubt draw on some famous and obscure visuals for inspiration.

Xue Wang resides in London, where she paints disturbing scenes with pretty girls and animals into strange or fun settings. Too much eye candy to choose from here. Here’s hoping you enjoy these!

Kelly Haigh seems to be quite a character. This spooky girl paints, adorns found taxidermy pals, cuts hair, and has a singing career.

 

Look what rolled in to town, the Carnivale. This is just one of the fun themes Miss Haigh has put to canvas.

Halloween Countdown: Vintage by Crystal

Posted in absurd, anthropomorphic, candy coated nightmares, craft, halloween with tags , , , , on October 11, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

These “pumpkin patch babies” from Vintage by Crystal are slightly…unnerving…

But here’s the one that really throws me for a loop: “Needle Felted Halloween Pumpkin Patch Baby Doll with Full Body and Mouse Licking Face”

Something about the pumpkin/baby combo falls short of endearing, but I adore the shock value and discomfort of it all.
