The website for Fred & Friends has some hilariously gruesome home and office supplies that are a combination of a horror movie and Adult Swim’s Five Minutes To Kill Yourself game. They’re the perfect inspiration for a lighthearted Halloween, with a voodoo doll toothpick holder and a bloody knife as evidence of a kitchen crime. The neon ghost in the bathroom tries to reach out via the rubber drain stopper, while an innocent paper man is brutally murdered with the blood spattered sticky notepad.
Tentacle Ring by OctopusMe for $160.00: Modeled from a real octopus tentacle, this ring reminds me of mythological sea creatures like the Kraken and Cthulhu (and also puts me in the mood for some sushi).
Wooden Skull Pin by Driftwood for $110.00: Carved out of driftwood, this skull pin looks like it came straight from the prow of a pirate ship.
Mario imagery is simple and iconic, and a great source of inspiration for geeks around the globe. The Bricks and Mortar Chair by Richard Woods (£1,725.00) is reminiscent of classic NES Super Mario Bros., while the Mushroom Pouffe by Anne-Claire Petit (€85,00) would look right at home in the Mushroom Kingdom!
