Alexander McQueen, eat your (jelly) heart out. For the launch of TWELV Magazine, Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi designed a breathtaking dress using only … wait for it … gummy bears. Yum! The dress is modelled on an equally tasty creation by the late, great Alexander McQueen.
Perhaps, my friends, perhaps. After all, not everyone can create a stop motion Lego proposal with dramatic twists and turns and a sweet, sweet finale. Watch on in awe, and all you guys getting ready to pop the big one, take heed! You’ll need to something pretty damn impressive these days to get a reaction.
Girls, are you too skinny? Do you feel left out by your non-skinny friends? Is your thin-ness ruining your social life? Well, fret no longer. These vintage weight gain ads hold the cure. Now you have no excuse for your skin and bones. Wink wink.
Believe it or not (and we do believe it), around the same time that WW1 was kicking off, it was legal – and possible – to send a small child via parcel post in America. Yup. And what’s more, two families did just that, including the parents of four year-old May Pierstorff, who covered their [...]
Long before you had snazzy sports cars with douchebag drivers (my wife’s words, not mine), there was a much, erm, simpler way to get around.

Our friends over at Buzzfeed have compiled a wickedly fun collection of 27 Things That Are Not Like The Others, with the disclaimer that ‘Something about each these pictures just seems to stick out.’ Indeed they do. Priceless. [via Buzzfeed]
Oh wow. These photos were taken during the 1920s and 30s in and around Boston by Leslie Jones, a staff photographer at the Boston-Herald Traveler newspaper. When he died in 1967, 34,000 of his prints were donated to the Boston Public Library, including these incredible snapshots of modern urban life in progress.

Made in New Zealand, these ‘reworked retro Chinese wide bowl teacups without saucers’ are the perfect gift for that cheeky friend in your life. ‘Text is in heat fused Porcelaine ceramic paint, and non-toxic’. Yup, unlike the message it contains.
Only in Japan! But hopefully soon, everywhere else. Yes, this is one invention we can all wipe our feet on. Paionia Furyokuki have created a doormat that literally sucks the dirt off your feet and into a container as you stand on it, ensuring both spotless shoes and a noisy entry to the house. Oh, and it only costs US$6,250. Now that’s dirt cheap.
For the person who has everything, you may be able to buy them a pair of these awesome 1970s Wonder Sauna Hot Pants, which promise to ‘slenderize where you want’. Huh. Sure beats working out and dieting.
We launched a website a while back called The Colour, devoted exclusively to the promotion of awesome Australian art and culture. We’re at the point now where we don’t feel like we’re doing justice to the site, given our primary focus on our other websites, Lost At E Minor and The Roar. So we want [...]
What’s the difference between Twitter and Facebook? A hashtag and a Like, apparently. What about Pinterest and Google+? How do Donuts fit into the picture? Well, it all makes way more sense now thanks to this clever Social Media explantion posted on douglaswray’s Instagram page.
We heard about the new cupcake vending machine recently, and that sounded just fine to us. Well, Let’s Pizza are muscling in on the act.

Our friends over at the awesome photography site, Feature Shoot, are presenting the group exhibition, Underage, at this year’s Photoville Festival in Brooklyn between June 22-July 1, 2012, featuring work by six young photographers who document the joys and travails of growing up: a time of first loves, experimentation, and the search for belonging.
