Gundam Meets Hello Kitty

With the unveiling of the real-life RX78 Gundam in Tokyo, people have been going crazy over this Japanese icon, but some of them have really lost their minds.

Like the guy who made this girly, pink Gundam action-figure. All I can hope for is that a girl is behind this, maybe she was inspired by a trip to the Hello Kitty Castle…But if it’s a guy, the only thing I can say is WTF DUDE?!?

Life-Size Formula 1 Car Made Out of Styrofoam

From Michael Salter, the styrofoam master who also created the famous Styrobot, comes the styrofoam Formula 1 race-car.

Definitely the best styrofoam work of art I’ve ever seen, this race-car replica looks just like the real thing, without the engine. But hell, if I had these baby in my yard, I’d just place a speaker under it and just record the sound of a Formula 1 race-car.

The brilliant Michael Salter presented his styrofoam Formula 1 race-car and a few other styrofoam creations at the Portland John Ross Plaza Studio, so be sure to check them out if you’re in the neighborhood.

Kick-ass Log Computer Case

I’m a big fan of crazy pc-case mods, and this log computer case has to be one of the most original I’ve ever seen.

Though it may not be the most environment-friendly pc case out there, the log case is still bad-ass. A crazy modder hollowed a log, made some slots for the pc components and thus created one of the weirdest computers I’ve ever seen.

The Log Computer is fully functional, although it does present some danger in case something overheats. But then again, who gives a damn about safety when you have something as cool as that in your home. It may not be as polished as the Wall-e pc case or the organic pc, but it’s definitely just as interesting.

Apache Helicopter Made Out of Plywood

It’s amazing what some people can do with something as plain as plywood.

This amazing Apache Helicopter model was created by Jasper Knight,  an artist from Sidney, Australia, who uses materials such as plywood, Perspex, cardboard and old traffic signs for his art. Knight’s plywood creation measures six meters in length, almost half the size of a real Apache Assault Helicopter.

Teen Makes Prom Dress Out Of Coffee Filters

A young, inspiring fashion designer created her prom dress using nothing else but coffee filters.

18-year-old Aimee Kick, from Missouri spent an entire month making her own prom dress out of coffee filters. Apparently Aimee spends a lot of her free time in local coffee shops and is known as “the girl with a coffee cup” so I guess she wanted to create an appropriate theme dress for her prom at Francis Howell North High School.

Man Builds Life-Size Bumblebee Transformer

It may not be as cool-looking as the life-size Gundam robot in Tokyo, but, for a home-made statue, this real-life Bumblebee Transformer is pretty awesome.

A big Transformers fan from Lemoore, California, Tom Rhoads decided to build a Bumblebee replica right in his front yard. He started working on the 18-foot-tall statue right after his son was born. Seeing these are financially-troubled times, Tom created the life-size Transformer out of an old Volkswagen Beetle, instead of a brand new Camaro, like in the movie.

Rhoads and a friend worked on this Bumblebee statue for an entire year, then lifted it into position using a crane and reinforced its legs so it wouldn’t fall down.

Star-Wars Chipmunks

What do chipmunks and Star-Wars have in common? I have no idea, but Canadian illustrator Chris McVeigh though it would be funny to mix them together.

Using a lot of patience and a significant amount of almonds, McVeigh managed to convince these cute, furry rodents to pose with action-figures from the popular sci-fi series Star-Wars. It all started when he befriended a chipmunk trapped in his father’s garden shed. He got quite close to it after a while and realized he could get them to do practically anything.

Great photos by Chris McVeigh and amazing acting by the chipmunks.

Teddy-Bear Coat by Sebastian Errazuriz

Do you know how little girls just won’t go anywhere without their teddy-bears? I’m pretty sure that was Sebastian Errazuris’ inspiration. This way girls can take their teddys anywhere and look cool at the same time. And I’m not talking little girls, after all you’re never too old for teddy-bears, right?

Stainless-Steel Baby Accessories

Whether you want some really unique baby accessories for you toddler, or just want to buy him some stuff that will probably last forever, these things are perfect. Of course you’ll also probably have to buy your baby some armor to keep him from getting some serious cuts, but nothing is perfect in this world, right.

I’m sure you’ve realized by now that these stainless steel accessories are nothing more than art exhibits and they couldn’t be used in real life.

Buy 3 Stars, Get 53 Free!

At least that was the case when young Kimberley Vlaminck asked for three stars tattooed near her left eye.

The young Belgian says she went to a tattoo parlor to get three small stars tattooed, but the foreign artist misunderstood her request and left her with 56 stars covering the left side of her face. How could that possibly have happened, you say? Simple, she fell asleep during the procedure and woke up when the artist finished his work.

Now, the guy who tattooed her doesn’t exactly look like the most trustworthy person in the world (he’s the guy in the last photo), but I find it hard to believe someone could fall asleep while getting a tattoo. Nevermind the pain, the noise of the tattoo-gun right next to her left ear would have been enough to keep her awake.

Kimberley says she must have been drugged by Rouslan Toumaniantz, the shop-owner and the guy who executed the tattoo, but he insists the girl specifically asked for 56 stars tattooed on her face. He says the whole scandal started when the 18-year-old went home and showed her family and boyfriend the permanent artwork. They went crazy, so miss Vlaminck returned to the tattoo-shop and accused Toumaniantz of misunderstanding her request.

Now Kimberley Vlaminck is suing Toumanintz for 10,000 pounds, the cost of a laser-procedure to remove his ‘mistake’. Although the tattoo artist maintains that the girl asked for 56 stars, and even brought in a witness to sustain his claim, he agreed to pay half of the procedure costs, just because he doesn’t want an unsatisfied customer.

Kimberley hasn’t accepted his offer yet.

Trying to get your girlfriend to play foosball? This Barbie-themed foosball table might just do the trick.

Created by French designer Chloe Ruchon and presented at the DMY Design Festival 2009, in Berlin, Barbiefoot combines Barbie dolls and table-football. You could say Ruchon managed to create something that men and women might actually enjoy doing together. While it might not be the world’s biggest foosball table, Barbiefoot is certainly an interesting concept.
