Not all snowmen are jolly and sing Christmas songs like Frosty. Some are evil, like Rip Film’s Freaky the Scary Snowman, who’s a big stupid jerk that likes to jump out and scare unsuspecting shoppers during the holiday season.
Freaky has been turning the Christmas season into a fright fest since 2011, with people that were just minding their own business getting the scare of their lives all over the country. The team behind Freaky has just released new edition of his exploits, along with a top 50 of all time, and somehow he’s managed to amp up the creep factor even more this year.
Kiev-based designer Konstantin Kofta’s new lines of wearable accessories are designed to mimic our actual body parts with freakishly accurate detail.
Comprised of three distinct lines (‘Hug,’ ‘Born,’ and ‘Roots’), Kofta’s hope is that the various backpacks, bags, and boots will force us to reexamine our perceptions, taking us back to our roots and reconnecting with our most primal of senses.
Among the items you’ll find are a flesh-covered backpack with a heavily-protruding spine, another where the shoulder straps appear to be strong hands grabbing one from behind, and bags in which someone appears to be straining in agony to escape.
Whatever your choice, these accessories which mimic our anatomy are certain to draw attention. For more information visit Kofta’s website.
Brooklyn-based photographer Kent Rogowski gives us a look at the not so cute and sweet side of our stuffed animals. His latest series captures images of teddy bears turned inside out, and the results are predictably creepy.
Entitled “Bears,” the collection feels like a rundown of extras from an 80s horror flick. I think I might have even seen my childhood bear.
He’s made this entire series as well as much more of his work available for viewing on his site. Check out our favorites from the Bears series below, then head over to his website to see the rest.
