Hello Kittypede Enamel Pin!!!

I love Creepy Company, and this new addition to their range says why. The Hello Kittypede 3.0 enamel pin comes in “Kitty Litter Glitter” grit white enamel, and is the work of artist Ed Harrington. Very nice for the price – just $11.99 here.

SkinDeep – Trapped in Plastic!

This is seriously cool – models wrapped in some very tight-fitting latex-type plasticky goo stuff. Or to put it more eloquently, the artist describes this as “a study on the body-object, ephemeral sculptures of the human form. Instant bas reliefs recalling of the classic imagery.”

Here’s a few tasters from the project…

The artist behind these is Julien Palast, and you can take a gander at the full set here or see more of Julien’s work here.

8-Bit Tatooine by Gabrielle Roman

This picture is great!


Artist Gabrielle Roman came up with this fantastic 8-bit rendition of a Tatooine sunset, all the way from the original Star Wars. You can check out more here

Lego Space Transport 918

I came across this photo of my favourite Lego set ever, so thought I’d commit it to immortality here…

 
This was released in 1978, according to Internet Lego nerds, but I got it for my 7th birthday the following year, which is 36 years ago next weekend at the time of writing. Very early Lego space set, made extra special by the opening cockpit and transparent gold window pieces. And came with the classic red spaceman! Here he is, and a couple of other pictures. 

   
   

Star Wars Meets Space Invaders 

Great mash-up, unfortunately I can’t credit the artist as I’ve no idea who did it. Please let me know if you do! 

  

Pac-Man vs Van Gogh 

I believe this little beauty is called Starry Night at the Arcade.  A talented artist by the name of Noah Gibbs came up with this wonderfully creative, retro gamer-friendly Vincent Van Gogh meets Pac-Man mash-up…

  

Arreton Barns Retro Arcade

We’re talking serious retro! Here’s a few pics I took on our visit to the Isle of Wight this week of some cool vintage arcade games.

Best Lego Space Sets Ever!

My favorites from the late 70’s and early 80’s, forgotten about until just now and recorded here so I don’t need to remember them again. In no particular order…

Brilliant Halloween Fancy Dress From 1967

Do you think these costumes look as good in real life as in the pictures? I’d love to hit the town in that devil outfit!
