The Iron Shoes

Found these amazing sword covered platform shoes while poking around on the internet and I immediately assumed they weren’t real shoes you could actually buy. Well, they are! A woman out of England originally made them as an art piece, but she got so many people interested in buying them that they are now available. They were meant as a tribute to the popular show Game of Thrones, but you don’t need to be a fan to covet these awesome shoes. Buy your pair from her Etsy shop¬†here.

Clementine Jack-O-Lanterns

This is a great last minute idea to decorate your house for Halloween. Everybody loves a clementine. Get a bunch of clementines, add a black sharpie and a little imagination and they become mini jack-o-lanterns.

Finland’s Silent People

Just off¬†Highway 5 outside of Suomussalmi, Finland there is an artist installation that is creeping people out. More than one thousand still figures made out of straw and wood are dressed in colorful clothing and facing the highway. The artist refuses to explain the meaning behind it preferring people to come up with their own interpretation. My interpretation? Creepy shit that I’ll have nightmares about. Check out the story and more photos here.

Skull Ceramic Vase

I always take a look around the various stores for their Halloween decor this time of the year. Usually it’s your basic plastic and fake type stuff. In other words good for Halloween, but not for year round. Once in a while I do get a surprise like this Skull Ceramic Vase. These are actually really nice and simple and can easily be displayed year round. When you live in a house like mine it can be hard to find nice things to display, so I am absolutely thrilled with this find. Get yours here.

Siri iPhone Case

While I was desperately searching for anything remotely interesting to put on my new iPhone I came across this little weird case. It won’t fit my 6 and I’m not sure I’d want it, but it is strangely cool. Apparently there was some sort of Siri design competition and this one was submitted. It’s supposed to be the embodiment of Siri, so that when you speak to her you are actually speaking to a face. The result is quite creepy and very impractical, but kinda neat. Check it out here.

Mammoth Book of Skulls

I came across this fantastic book a few days ago that was just released. Pretty much a compendium of all things skulls and it’s pretty much amazing. Gorgeous photos and information on my favorite subject. I highly recommend checking it out here.
