I found these amazing posts while perusing the web, reading blogs, or skimming through the many newsletters I’ve subscribed to.
A make-up artist paints album covers on her face:
I found this one on Flavorwire. It’s pretty cool. I’m unfamiliar with the albums featured but I am amazed by the artist’s skills. Her name is Natalie Sharp and she’s very talented. Visit her website to see more of her work.
My favorite is the umbrella that looks like a sword. Sooo cool!! I’ve always wanted a sword! If I get that umbrella, I would carry it everywhere with me. And I dare anyone to try robbing me. It would’t work. No siree! I would defeat the robber with my umbrella.
For those, like me, who are lovers of both literature and art, here is a post that you’ll enjoy. Flavorwire fused both into a list of graffiti inspired by literature. Some are artistically great and others are hilarious. These two are my favorites:
This beautiful dress was made by Carrie Ann Schumacher from 50 romance novels. It’s very lovely and represents well what it is made from.

This outfit, designed by Tata Christiane, is based on Gabriel García Márquez’s, 100 Years of Solitude. It is made to represent magical realism, an important element in Márquez’s novel; though, I must agree with Flavorwire here that the outfit is more magical than realistic. I like it because it is whimsical.
Here is a cool post that I found on Flavorwire. The homes featured are truly bizarre, for example, Betsey Johnson’s “Betseyville” located in Mexico. It’s very colorful but totally matches her style; I quite like it.
My favorite is above — Julian Schnabel’s pink palazzo, located in New York. My second favorite is Christina Aguilera’s macabre mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Click here to see pictures of the other bizarre homes.
