'SOB SKULLS' - our 2014 HALLOWEEN RELEASE is herehHaHAHA

You didn't think we'd let our favourite holiday (and yes, it is a holiday) pass by without some kind of celebration now did ya!? Right back at the beginning of the year we had the idea to turn our WOLFMASK designed logo into a 3D toy. There was only one person capable of pulling off such a task; a certain Taiwan-based toy maker known only as SKULL MAN aka 13ART!
Utilising our vast knowledge of the Taiwanese language, we back and forth'd over email for months until finally, a box of cockeyed miniature rotters landed on our desk. Now... these things may be small, but the quality is simply stunning having been handmade and painted by one of the best toy makers in the game.
Limited to just 30 pieces, each resin skull comes packaged in a handmade box (numbered) complete with stickers, additional treats and absolutely no tricks.
So, when are we dropping these rancid beasts? ...well how about today? Scrap that, how about right bloody now - IT IS HALLOWEEN AFTER ALL!!! Purchase your very own SOB totem HERE for just £15 ($25)

'Skull Leader' - new limited edition custom mech by HUCK GEE


Huck Gee writes: 'Robotech was profoundly influential on my childhood. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced at the time. Not only was the story mind-blowingly epic, beautifully drawn, with touches of romance, and giant transformable mechs battling massive battle hungry aliens... but it was the first cartoon I had ever watched in which a character died. And not just any character but a tough, charismatic lead: Roy Fokker, AKA Skull Leader.
I know Robotech's production history. I know it was originally released in Japan under the title Macross and that the 2nd and 3rd story arcs were kit bashed together from 2 different anime series. I've never really dug into it but I assume there's purists out there that would poopoo me for not referring to this series as Macross. But for me, wether the enemy is Zentraedi, Masters or Invid, the show will always be Robotech. That's how I was introduced to it. That's the series that inspired my adolescent impressionable self. Twenty odd years later I feel enlivened to revisit this slice of my youth.'
Skull Leader will be available for 24 HOURS ONLY directly at www.huckgee.com for $450. It will be available beginning this Friday, October 31st, at 11am PDT and removed from the store at 11am PDT on Saturday, November 1st.

Middle Of Beyond knitwear - SOB review [MOB Vs SOB]

A few months back the good people at Middle Of Beyond sent us a couple of their wonderfully unique knits for us to explore. At this time the weather was pretty good here in Britain which made doing this review impossible for one reason... sweat! It's safe to say that these garments are the warmest freakin' items of clothing you're ever likely to experience. Witness the thickness!
Now that the chill of autumn is upon us and with Halloween looming just around the corner, we thought this weekend was the perfect time to carry out this piss about errr, I mean review. So yesterday we excitedly wrapped ourselves in our new novelty wool-ware and skipped across to the nearest abandoned graveyard for some festive frolics (in a 'respectful to the dead' kinda manner).
Firstly, the quality of these pieces is exceptional, which is something you might expect considering their $80 price tag. They look just like they do online, maybe even better. Our only word of caution comes when choosing your size, having both found them to be rather on the large side. In fact, my 'small' almost fitted Tom's 6 ft 2" frame meaning on my 5 ft 7" bod, it looked more like a coat than a cardigan :/
Our solution was to wear them with hoodies on underneath. Although this did add to the stifling heat, it suddenly made them look right. Before, my WOLF cardigan made me feel like I was a member of The Night's Watch (minus the feathers). And Tom's Sasquatch cardigan made him look like one serious old-timer. Hoods equalled good in this case which meant SOB were now ready to MOB!!!
After much rigorous testing, we concluded that everyone should invest in some MOB apparel. Chances are you'll mainly be wearing them during the winter months so we recommend an item from their Christmas range which includes, 'Zombie Santa', 'Hip Hip Santa' and various awesome Krampus designs. These will blow everyone else's novelty jumpers out of the water at the office xmas party but are also fashionable enough to rock all year round.



Follow MOB on InstagramFacebook and Twitter.

New 'Stripe from Gremlins' fabric sculpture by Tessa Morrison for Guzu Gallery's upcoming Icons of Horror: A Haunted Portrait Show


Tessa Morrison is the Queen of fabric manipulation. With a clever twist, roll or fold she can produce super-impressive pop-art sculptures that are packed full of character and charm. This is her latest piece made for Guzu Gallery's upcoming horror-themed art show (details below). Stay up to date with everything Tessa by following her on Twitter.


Tessa comments: "Gremlins was one of my favorite scary movies as a kid. Yes, it was also a goofy comedy, but as a kid it was freaky to think about monsters scurrying in the dark sabotaging machinery, cutting power lines, and coming after you. One of the original scripts actually had the gremlins kill Billy’s mom, but instead they had her be a badass killing the gremlins with kitchenware. Think how different that movie would have been with Billy avenging his mom?"


If you like what you see and have the overwhelming urge to own Stripe then listen up because he's available now for $275. Simply contact Gallery Guzu to make your purchase.


All of the work from the show will be available online on November 3rd at Noon CST.
