a twiggy halloween

Saturday night consisted of going to the Fillmore in Silver Spring to see Chromeo and Mayer Hawthorne. I had been looking forward to the show for quite some time and I kept going back and forth on whether I should dress up for the concert. At the last minute I decided that I’d be sad if I didn’t. So I spent Saturday putting this twiggy costume together. It wasn’t that complicated. Luckily I found a dress that felt 60s in pattern and cut and I found an awesome photo guide of twiggy doing her eye makeup (shown below). The show was awesome, both Chromeo and Mayer Hawthorne were amazing and I got a few people that recognized my costume! Happy Halloween everyone!

400 costumes to die for

I tweeted about this yesterday but its too cute not to post here too. 400 Costumes to Die For is GS Design‘s 2009 annual self-promotional piece. Just roll the two 20-sided dice to reveal more than 400 morbidly clever costume ideas – from Zombie Elvis and Space Jesus to the truly outré. The dice are packaged in an illustrated tube with rings that rotate to let the recipient create mix-and-match Halloween creatures. The tube is an economical one-color hot stamp on black paper with printed one-color instructions affixed inside the lid. While researching this design I discovered that they created an iphone and ipad app too! Download it for free here. Now you don’t have any excuses not to dress up this year.

liam brazier illustrations

Really blown away by these geometric illustrations by Liam Brazier. I’m kind of a sucker for the geometric look right now, (isn’t everyone?) but these seem more unique and take the geo style to the next level.

type tuesday: seb lester

I’ve been a long time fan of Seb Lester‘s gorgeous lettering. Here are a few of my favorites from him. I especially love the Van Gogh stars print; how genius is he to make the lettering out of stars! And of course I adore the Home Sweet Home print (since I have one and it’s hanging in my bedroom.) View all of his work here.

type tuesday: Linus Dean rugs

I’m drooling over these graphic rugs featuring vintage typography from Linus Dean. “Working with craftspeople in Tibet and Nepal, Linus has moved his innovative designs to plush three-dimensional form. The high-quality silk and wool rugs are designed in Sydney and handmade in Nepal, yielding an ideal blend of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship.” I can’t decide between the Barcelona or Paris one.

nonna lina ice cream

Gorgeous traditional, yet modern branding for Nonna Lina ice cream by Mr. Conde Studio. I especially love seeing his process pictures; sketches, wireframes and color scheme inspiration.
