!! OMG, pop your finger in his flesh-hoop: Sruli Recht’s Forget-Me-Knot Ring !!

If someone gave me this ring for Valentine’s day, I guarantee I would definitely forget-them-knot!
Sruli Recht creates some of the most innovative and beautiful garments and jewellery in the world. He is always asking questions about the use of animal products in fashion. He has previously created pieces from stillborn lamb leather and silk-injected goat’s skins, and recently documented a performance/surgery during which he had a 110mm x 10mm strip of skin from his abdomen removed, which was salted, tanned and mounted to a 24kt gold ring, which can be purchased for €350,000.
You can watch the ‘performance’ after the jump. It’s NOT SAFE FOR TWERK…it’s barely safe for anywhere; it’s pretty gross but that ring is pretty beautiful though.
So inspiring! I’m off to my kitchenette to drink the rest of that oozo, grab a bread knife and get going with my circumcision valentines ring, I can’t afford gold so it’s just going to be a fleshy hoop really.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, Drone Diva: Chelsea Wolfe for Converse x Decibel !!

Chelsea begins the song with “I don’t want money and all his friends”, so I’m like “Oh, that’s really nice she is against mainstream capitalism, spending time on her own -you know- like learning some shit about what life’s really about…but then she starts asking for all this really expensive shit:

“I want flood lights
I want flower fields”

Honey, you just said you didn’t want all that monetary crap, oh ok, you don’t want money, you just want things that cost loads of money instead. Every time she floats through to the other room, they find her watching QVC; buying bespoke vineleaf rings and kitchen implements galore.

OMG, is she getting a DOUBLE-FISTED BDSM CRANIO-SACRAL MASSAGE?! That shit is ex- pen- sive!

!! OMG, strike a pose: Ralph Pucci in ‘Apotheosis’ !!

“Apotheosis (from Greek ἀποθέωσις from ἀποθεοῦν, apotheoun “to deify”; in Latin deificatio “making divine”; also called divinization and deification) is the glorification of a subject to divine level.”
In this beautifully shot snip-tit, mannequin creator Ralph Pucci attempts to dispel peoples Hitchcockian fears of the mannequin, speaking instead of the unachievable ‘perfection’ that the mannequin form represents:

“Mannequins are definitely the workhorses of the [fashion] industry…As perfect as famous supermodels are, mannequins are even better”

Also, mannequin supermodels will not throw their cellphone at you!
Pucci does a really good job of speaking of his models in a sort of divine architectural aspiration sort of a way..until he says; “as time has gone on they have become much more active”
OK, now we’re back to creepy Dr Who Mannequin Madness gone amok, plastic department store-props-with-guns world take-over scenario again!

!! OMG, What a Tyrade: North Korean Tyra-Hating Propaganda !!

Ok, well erm, I can’t claim that I didn’t make comment on Tyra’s sparkly Vaseline frenzy situation, although whatever I had to say was masked with my giggle-voms at how hilarious the whole debacle seemed; tinted with slight sparkly-lube jealousy at not getting any…but that’s the extent of judgements on her, I like her a lot, and love that her show is a portal for more André Leon Talley in my life.
However, almost more insane than all the other western-hating claims that have come from North Korea the last few years, is their vehement repugnance for Miss Banks:

“she now has a talk show where she pretends to be concerned about peoples problems and society in general, even though she has no qualifications to do this…The audience doesn’t question this charade but instead it willingly feeds into her need to talk about herself”

I love that this report speaks of the audience as a SINGLE-MINDED DRONE ENTITY, maybe North Korea just needs a big box of Tyra’s sparkly “biggest beauty secret eveeeeeer”, maybe they too are just a tad jealous that they didn’t get it first time around?!
I can relate to that!
[Thanks Alex!]

!! OMG, how handy: finger trap handbags !!

These finger trap handbags by L.A.-based designer James Piatt are based on Chinese finger trap toys. I’d love to wear one of these to the airport, maybe a suitcase version:

“erm excuse me sir how many bags will you be checking today?
Oh these, oh they’re not bags, these are my gloves, silly. No bags, I’ll just walk right through, OK?”

Maybe a GARBAGE-BAG VERSION could work too: Finally taking out the trash doesn’t have to be dreadfully boring and un-chic!
