warhol hair

A few days ago, I showed you some very cool new fine art-inspired hair color designs by Ursula Goff. Well, she’s been hard at work and has several new styles inspired by artists like Klimt, Andy Warhol, Monet, Botticelli, and Georgia O’Keefe.

I think Warhol would dig it. Here’s hoping she adds a Lichtenstein and Van Gogh.

hotel cosplay

So my friend checked into a random hotel, and then this happened

She accidentally nailed that hotel cosplay is what happened.

batman-04Batman and LEGO are two great tastes that taste great together. And now an Australian LEGO fan has recreated Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum entirely out of LEGO bricks.

Built from approximately 18,000 bricks, Dayton (aka Forgotten Days on Flickr) spent years designing this masterpiece and had to specially order bricks in. It took three months to finish construction in time for Brickvention, an Australian LEGO convention.

The attention to detail in this recreation is magnificent, and you can check it out in photos, as well as a walkthrough video on Nerd Approved

As you can see, Ryan Burke’s makeup is pretty unreal. It is inspired by many sources, from club kids to fashion to art, but most surprisingly is the geometry that influences the symmetrical patterns he uses. He tells Buzzfeed:

I am inspired by symmetry, geometric shapes, drag culture, club culture, fashion, art, unconventional materials, patterns — anything really that alters my appearance and distorts my features.

This is Maddie. She was injured in a car accident and needs to wear a brace due to a T12 fracture. She didn’t like the standard brace, so she decided to make the best of a bad situation. Her mother tells EPBOT:

My daughter didn’t like the brace she had to wear after surgery, so a friend helped her steampunk it. Best part, now folks are intrigued, and come up and ask why she has to wear it rather than just staring.

Her friend is named Sarah, and she’s one of those awesome theater nerds who does set design. They steampunked the heck out of that brace and the result is just amazing.

The brace has become something both fashionable and therapeutic, thanks to a little paint, some appliques, and a great imagination.

If you’re like me, you probably don’t understand why people need fancy, expensive watches like Rolexes. I mean, it’s a watch. It tells time. Who needs to spend $5k on that?

At least, that’s how I felt before I saw this gorgeous Captain Phasma watch by Hong Kong-based watchmaker Memorigin.

Limited to just 200 pieces and priced at $5500, the face is designed to invoke our favorite chrome-plated First Order Captain in all her glory. It has 12 black diamonds as the hour markers, a black-and-red leather strap, and the back is made of sapphire crystal glass so you can see the inner workings of this beauty.

Take a closer look in the pics below.
