sloth-scarf

Too bad you didn’t have this adorable 3-toed sloth scarf this past winter. Just look at that smile on his face…the sloth’s face I mean. He looks so happy to be keeping his human friend warm.

The double layer fleece will definitely keep you toasty and it’s long enough to wrap around more than once. And the little smooshy sloth face can be positioned anywhere on the scarf for ultimate cuteness.

Josh, owner of Etsy shop Obey My Brain, makes the fleecy friend in a few different colors and models all the sloths himself.

love-live-otaku-dolls

Twitter user Shitaraki Kongo loves to tweet about his passion for the anime Love Live!, a Japanese series about adorable school girls who become music idols to save their school from closing.

He appears to have a sizable collection of merch, but the posable dolls are his favorites.

Even though he was trying to keep his true identity a secret, his mother figured it all out (as mothers often do) much to his embarassment.

Since he doesn’t live with his parents, she could have ignored the situation. She could also have made things especially awkward. However, this awesome mom decided to grab her sewing kit.

When she found out about her son’s obsession she said:

“I don’t know much about Twitter, but it seems like you’re really into dolls. Give me the doll, and I’ll make whatever outfit you want for it.”

And her sewing skills are spot on. Check out the fabulous frocks after the break.

dragon-skull-mask

That’s not just any old dragon skull mask. That’s the skull that lonely Pokemon character Cubone adorns to remember his mother. It’s kinda creepy and kinda sweet at the same time.

Etsy shop owner Faust & Company specialize in realistic looking animal skulls masks using a casting rubber called “neoprene” which provides durability, level of detail, non-toxicity, and flexibility. Each mask is hand crafted and painted and fits adult males and smaller with an adjustable elastic strap.

allen-gale-etsy-costume

Meet your new fairy godmother, Allen Gale. Inspired by his grandmother who was a professional seamstress for over 60 years, Allen became passionate about theater and costume design. Although mostly self taught, he earned his degree in Costume Design and Construction to make his passion and unbelievable talent a career.

His Etsy shop currently has magnificent costumes made with high quality fabric that look like they just came off the set of a live action Disney princess movie. The detailing is incredible and Allen models almost all of them himself! Actually, he makes princess Aurora, Belle, and Ariel look stunning. I’m absolutely in love with all his dresses and he completely captures the character at heart.

Take a look at his fantastic work after the break.
