HtCC: Jointed Jewels

I’m a bit of nerd. I would have said secret nerd, but lets face it, you know already. One of the things that really fascinates me is 3D printing. I could watch for hours (via YouTube) how an item can be built up over time in a printer. Most of the things I’ve seen be built have been practical items, but this collection of jewellery by Alissia Melka-Teichroew is a nice change.

The pieces are made by selective laser sintering, which allows a ball within a ball to be created. Watching this video shows how the items are built up.

The website allows you to click the design and then choose the colour (as above) – below are a few of my favourites

I think the pink chevron necklace is my favourite, then the yellow jeweled piece (although probably in a different colour!) Which do you prefer?

Spin Around, Come Back Down

A seriously short post today. Last night was the Aussie-versary party and this is what I wore – the dress is from the Limited Edition range from Primark (I loved it at the filming of Gok Wan’s show, and then when I saw it on Dani‘s, I knew I had to have it! The shoes are leather wedges from New Look, I needed shoes for this and for work, and these were in the sale with a handwritten £7 label on. Amazing.

Lots of things to tell from this weekend, but I’m off to eat pizza and watch Chuck. Good plan.

Trick or (Doggy) Treat?

Halloween is coming up, and although I don’t have any reason to dress up myself, I can’t help looking at costumes for Fern. Here’s a few of my favourites.

First up are the super heros. Superman (Superdog?), Wonder Woman and Batman

This AT-AT costume was hand made for this Italian Greyhound (which you’ve probably seen on various sites like Cute Overload but if you’re not so crafty, you can buy various costumes for your puppy to dress them up like Princess Leia, Darth Vader or even Yoda

Moving on to musical influences, perhaps you love Lady Gaga? Why not dress your dog in a replica of her Kermit the frog costume? The seller, lenapavia‘s store is full of doggy hats and costumes, so if this doesn’t take your fancy, what about a fedora hat, Minnie Mouse ears or another Lady Gaga costume, the bubbles costume she wore

An theme that wouldn’t need explanation would have to be food based. Whether you dress your dachshund as a hot dog or your chihuahua as a taco, its a simple costume thats seriously cute

Finally, since its Halloween, most costumes tend to have a “sexy” slant to them. To accompany you, why not dress your dog up like a pimp or match your schoolgirl costume?

How would you dress your pooch up? I can’t decide now!
