#The100DayProject – Felt Creatures

August 22, 2016
#The100DayProject

Becky Margraf, a community Manager at DIY.org based in San Francisco CA, created these adorable creatures in her #The100DayProject, and their smiley faces bring a little bit of happiness and a smile to my face.

She decided to hand-sew little felt faces over 100 consecutive days as part of a wider project. She completed #The100DayProject and shared her felt creatures everyday on her Dribbble. The results were magnificent…

#The100DayProject #The100DayProject #The100DayProjectAll the details of the creatures are immaculate, they’re all as adorable as each other. The attention she took photographing each with a contrasting background is just fantastic and makes them even more adorable. I wish she would put them for sale.

Check out more of her other DIY works on her website Feltbeasts. There’s not a shop yet, but fingers crossed. Continue Reading…

Toy Story Van’s

Toy Story Van's

Photos from a private Instagram this week revealed a new Toy Story Van’s line and I am very excited.

It looks like Vans have teamed up with Disney and Pixar to create a Toy Story inspired fashion line. The classic Toy Story film franchise has been begging for this to happen and it’s about time. I didn’t know it until I saw them but I need these in my life…

The Toy Story Van’s line contains trainers, shoes and backpacks and have based the designs on the characters Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Bo Peep, and more.

The adorable Aliens with Buzz pattern glows in the dark. I want them to make the “ooo” sound like they do in the film, but that might be too much.

All of the shoes have the handwritten name “Andy” on the bottom of them. I absolutely adore the shoes at the top of the page, I will definitely be feeling like Woody soon enough.

Whilst there is no news of an official release date yet, rumour has it we’ll be seeing them this autumn.  Those, like me, wishing to get their hands on a pair will have to wait for a price announcement but I’m sure it won’t be that much. I think I’d be happy to part with a little bit of cash to indulge a bit of nostalgia.

The only thing that has been shared about the Toy Story Van’s line is the pictures published. All I know is that I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair!

Update! – you can now browse these shoes in the US Vans store here. They’ll be available in November this year!

Suicide Squad Fashion Collection

Suicide Squad Fashion Collection

I love the new and exclusive Suicide Squad Fashion Collection created by Hot Topic, it is amazing! Hot Topic partnered with Warner Bros on behalf of DC Entertainment and launched the new line on July 22nd and is now available in the Hot topic stores and on their website.

I have found that the Suicide Squad Fashion Collection is mostly inspired by DC Comics characters Harley Quinn and the Joker with some Katana items available. It features over 15 pieces for guys and girls, including a variety of clothing. These include sweaters, dresses, skinny jeans and more. You can get most sizes in-store but you can only find the plus-sizes online.

American Horror Story Season 6

American Horror Story Season 6American Horror Story season 6 is on the way and has been one of my favourite series since the beginning. I am really looking forward to the next season.

It has been announced that the first episode will premiere on September 14 and there are some changes. It is very unusual, compared to previous seasons, that there will only be 10 episodes when the others all had 12. It’s also strange that American Horror Story Season 6 premieres in September when previous seasons have premiered in October.

They have released some teasers for the next season; you can watch them in the video below. This time they took much longer to reveal what the subject of the new season will be. This allowed space for a lot of rumours as the only thing the show’s co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk would give away was that they “would incorporate 2 different ideas they had”, “set in two time periods but principally in the present”, and “children will play a significant part of the plot”.
