Jewelry designer @Hakusi_Kasei recently showed off a Spectrum Cube necklace design that spews a rainbow of colors whenever it’s exposed to light.

Although the timing for a December debut was perfect, the bad news is that it’s not yet commercially available – meaning you’ll have to move it from your Christmas list to your “Dammit, why can’t I have that?” list.

The Santa at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto, Canada isn’t your typical jolly old elf – he’s Paul Mason, a former model who is giving Santa’s image a stylish makeover for charity.

Every time a shopper snaps a photo with Fashion Santa and posts it on social media with the hashtag #YorkdaleFashionSanta, a buck is donated to the SickKids Foundation. After all, Christmas isn’t all about toys and being really, really ridiculously good looking.

cat forehead top

Retailer Felissimo continues the tradition of batsh*t Japanese products with a new fabric water scented like a cat’s forehead.

The product, called “Fluffy Forehead Fragrance Fabric Water” is available in 100-millilitre (3.4-ounce) bottles and was developed using customer survey responses who likened cat forhead scent to “the smell of sunshine”, “a futon that’s been dried in the sun” and “sweet bread”.

The head of Yamamoto Perfumery also did some research during the product’s four month development, smelling the foreheads of cats to pinpoint similarities between scents.

The product is available for 1,293 yen (US$10.60) and is designed to freshen up fabrics, most notably cushions and blankets. However, there doesn’t appear to be any reason why you can’t use it on your clothes.

They’ve also unveiled a line of giant, fuzzy kitty head cushions that you can spray. Check out pics below.

sword hair

Madrid-based salon owner Alberto Olmedo doesn’t rely on conventional scissors to achieve his signature hairstyles. Instead, he uses an arsenal of weapons such as a blowtorch, samurai swords and talons in a symmetry generating process he describes as “practically primitive” and “medieval”.

Hairdressers usually cut one side and then the other. And they are always a bit different from the other, even if it’s only a little bit. The only way to do it in an exact mathematical way is to cut both sides simultaneously. …Sometimes you have to use a bit of your imagination to achieve positive results.

First-time patrons will also have to use their imaginations to help them forget the burning hair smell and the fact that a crazy person is wielding flames and swords inches away from their heads.

See Olmedo in action in the videos below.

100 years of tattoos

Casey Lubin decided to turn her body into an art project by getting 11 new tattoos inked into her skin by artist Clae Welch over the course of one week. The result is also a history of the process, as each example was done in the style of specific American tattoo artists from each decade of the last century.

Chances are you’ll feel sore just watching it.

After undergoing spinal fusion surgery, redditor “Penguinz90” was required to wear a large neck brace that she thought might “freak out” the kids she teaches in her science class. In order to reduce the risk, and add some style to what is otherwise a completely utilitarian object, she decided to unleash some steampunk imagination:

I dyed the foam insert hot pink, then got a black oil based paint Sharpie and colored the plastic and Velcro straps black, then added the steampunk gears with hot glue. I took it off and leaned my head back on a recliner to color it, put it back on to dry off then glued everything on while looking in the mirror.

As you can see in the photo above, the result could lead to a new career in the jewelry business—not to mention the burgeoning world of custom nerdy medical gear (which includes wheelchairs, helmets and prosthetics).

You probably never would have linked Ned Flanders with metal music, but during a conversation about funny comparisons, two guys in Arizona changed all of that:

Myself and our drummer (Bled Ned) were in line at a grocery store, entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands,” [lead singer Head Ned] says. “The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us. We ran with it. I contacted a few friends (Red Ned, Thread Ned, and Stead Ned), and here we are. Most of us have played in other bands around our hometown…This is definitely the heaviest sounding project any of us Neds have done.

If you want to hear what “Nedal” music sounds like, hit the jump to listen to four demo tracks from the new, Phoenix-based band, most of which are based on direct Ned quotes. There are also a couple additional pics of the band in costume.
