400 costumes to die for

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

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.

happ & stahns perfume packaging

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I stumbled upon this perfume at the Anthropologie accessories store just the other day. It’s the cutest box and bottle…every single detail is just perfect. I especially love the pincushion top on the bottle. I was sooo close to buying it just for the packaging—I don’t even think I smelled it—but thankfully I came to my senses. Purchase it for yourself at Anthropologie here and here. It’d make a great gift for a perfume lover.

p.s. If you live in the DC area you must check out the Anthropologie accessories store in Chevy Chase—it’s to die for.
