LEGO Batcave built out of over 20,000 parts

We all have our passions and hobbies. Some of us are collectors while others like to be more productive and to build things. But there’s something that can be applied for all of us and that’s the fact that passion knows no age. And nowhere else is this better illustrated than at the Comicon. Here we see people of all ages and from all domains. At this year’s Emerald City Comicon a very interesting and impressive surprise was presented.

LEGO builders Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey presented their collaborative creation. It’s a Batcave that the two have built using over 20,000 individual pieces. It’s an impressive number but the result is a more impressive creation. The Batcave is built out of LEGO bricks and it weights over 100 pounds. It was a great effort that the two did, all just to show off their love for Batman. It took them more than 800 hours to complete the Batcave and, at the end, they got to display it for everyone to admire it.

A New Look for a Vintage Chair – The Maid Dress

We, people, get attached to the other people and things around us and we simply refuse to let go. We do not want to throw them away even if they are old and bad looking. Well, the point is that you do not have to be so radical as to replace them with new items, but you can try and give them a new look. It’s like an extreme makeover, but for furniture pieces instead of houses or people. Here is an idea of how you can get A New Look for a Vintage Chair – The Maid Dress or have somebody else do this for you.

The smart and creative people from Voila! made a living of gathering pieces of textiles from all over the place – pieces of all colours and patterns – and they simply give a personal and unique style to vintage chairs, adding some unusual but beautiful accessories. This Parlour Maid Chair is the best example of what you can do with some lace and white cotton cloth.

Flower Vases Shaped Like Lab Beakers

I have never been a huge fan of Chemistry and I actually felt rather strange when handling all those lab tubes and substances because i was not so sure what i was mixing there and if the result will be spectacular or just a catastrophe waiting to happen. But I would have never imagined them to be beautiful. Or at least I haven’t until I saw these amazing Flower Vases Shaped Like Lab Beakers. These are actually vases that are almost shaped like lab tubes, but not entirely, as lab tubes have a round bottom and these don’t. They have a flat bottom and they serve as flower vases, even though they still stand in a wooden lab stand. I guess this is just for the visual effect.

So these beakers look pretty nice if you fill them with water and use them as vases for many pretty flowers you want to surround you. This is the proof that even a scientific world can be embellished and brought to nature, at least every once in a while. It might remind you of your high school Chemistry lab, but this wooden support is really helpful, as it keeps all the five small vases standing and it makes an unusual and yet pretty decoration for your home, too. And also available for the price of €32.00.

Giant Octopus Beautiful Tryptich

I think we learn something every day if we pay attention to the world around us. For example I had no idea what a tryptich was until recently when I discovered that it sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. In case you did not know either, a tryptich is a work of art that is usually made of painted panels and which is divided into tree separate parts. The funny thing about these parts is the fact that they are not displayed next to each other, but they do have some space in between them. And this makes the tryptich even more interesting as design.

Felisimmo’s Aurora Display Case – a different way of creating art using colored pencils

Colored pencils aren’t just for kids. Grown-ups sometimes use them too but for quite different purposes. But, regardless of that, the result is always a form of art. A while ago we came across a very interesting creation and we really wanted to share it with you. It’s a wall display and it was created using lots of colored pencils.This is the Aurora Display Case created by Felisimmo. It’s difficult to place it a category.

It’s basically a case for colored pencils but it’s also much more than that. It’s also a beautiful work of art. It’s composed of five units featuring the same dimensions, shape and design. Each of these units form a set that, in total, is filled with 500 colored pencils. The pencils are arranged as a gradient and they form very beautiful effects. It’s an unusual and untraditional way of using the pencils but the result still remains in the sphere of art.

Phone booths turned into goldfish aquariums – a magician-worthy transformation

We now live in an era when many of the revolutionary inventions that changed the world are no longer useful. For example, the phone booth was a great invention when it was first introduced on the streets. It made our lives much more easier and it changed our perspective on technology. However, the very same concept that the phone booths were based on has grown and has led to the creation of cell phones. We all carry them now so we no longer need or use the phone booths. But they are a nostalgic memory and don’t deserve to be discarded just like that. So a few people decided to repurpose them and turn them into works of art.

This is a movement that first appeared in Brazil. It was then adopted in Japan as well. Here, art collective Kingobu has repurposed phone booths into goldfish aquariums. It’s an image that personally sends me to magicians and their tricks. But this has nothing to do with magic. It’s just the result of the efforts of this group that turned these old phone booths that nobody uses anymore into something that we can all relate to, something that we can all admire and something that impresses once again.

Wall Clock or Wall Art?

Like all children, I was fascinated by things and their mechanisms, why they move and what makes them move in a certain way. And when I could not figure out by myself I was frustrated and wanted to know the truth as soon as possible. This is how I decided to remove the back of a wall clock and see what was inside. I was simply;y stunned seeing so many gears and little pieces that seemed to work with a lot of ease. Well, I still remember what I saw then and this memory was brought back to my mind by this special Wall arrangement called Gear Wall Art with Clock.
