scream hair

Hairstylist and colorist Ursula Goff likes to play with color in new and interesting ways. On that note, I noticed a new project that has just begun on her Instagram that really has me intrigued.

A couple of days ago, she shared a style inspired by Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” and announced that she’s working on a Fine Art series. The next day, it was “Girl With a Pearl Earring” by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, which you can check out below.

I love this idea and I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.

snack-makeup

Who says food and makeup don’t go together? Tim O. takes the two and makes an epic combination: a foodie fashion statement.

The intriguing part of this is how he draws our attention to the packaging on our favorite snacks. As you’ll see, Tim O. finds inspiration in the funky tones of Funyuns, Pop-Tarts and more.

If there’s one thing Pokémon fan artists love doing, it’s Gijinka – human versions of Pokémon. Artist and cosplayer SunsetDragon has taken it one step further, however, by knocking out these amazing Dungeons & Dragons-inspired Gijinka of each Eveelution (the various Type evolutions of Evee, who can be evolve using a number of different elemental stones in the games).

Most people would’ve stopped at the delightful-to-say-out-loud “Flareon Barbarian” and let the joke end there, but thankfully SunsetDragon has drawn all eight Eveelutions as well as regular ol’ Evee herself, each with her own D&D class.

We’re glad she did, because they look absolutely stunning. She’s also said she’s absolutely okay with anyone out there who wants to cosplay as her designs, which is incredibly awesome of her!

Boba-Fett-Mandalorian-Armor-feature

A Jedi can deflect projectiles with skilled use of a Lightsaber and the Force. Unfortunately those of us here on Earth aren’t quite so skilled and need something a little more protective.

Enter AR500 Armor, a body armor manufacturer who have just unveiled this Boba Fett-inspired bit of combat gear. A collaboration between AR500, Heckler & Koch, TEA Headsets, Sog Knives & Tools, Armasight, SureFire, Wilcox Industries Corp, Team Wendy and artist Ryan B. Flowers (who sells a version of the armor for airsoft players), this armor boasts custom ballistic plates, meaning it can probably withstand actual gunfire. However, there’s no word yet on whether or not this is a one-off piece or if it will be made available for sale.

Check out more photos of the armor below.

watercolor hair

It seems like, every week or so, there’s a new hair coloring trend out there. Recent examples include sunset hair, glow-in-the-dark hair and glitter hair to name a few.

It’s art in the form of hair color.

This new watercolor hair trend is a great example. When you watch the video Pravana’s Vadre Grigsby created to show off the technique, you can see just how much thought, detail, and talent go into creating this look.

My appreciation for hair colorists just keeps growing. Check out the video along with additional examples below.

Every time we feature a new hair color trend, I want to run out to see my colorist. That’s especially true for glow-in-the-dark/blacklight hair. You’ll always be ready for a rave.

great knife

In case you still haven’t gotten your fill of the horrors of Silent Hill, it’s time to bring the game into the real world in the form of Pyramid Head’s Great Knife.

This impressive weapon was made by the guys at Man At Arms (naturally). They chose to go with the variant that’s reminiscent of Rambo’s knife. Oh, and they made it out of a train track.

As you’ll see in the video below, they actually used the knife to epically destroy various objects in slow motion.
