Anyone who has spent time with a guinea pig probably knows how much they love to eat vegetables and endless piles of hay. (Pretty much more than anything.) But did you know that some guinea pigs also like to dress up in stylish clothing and headwear that reflects their unique personalities? Perhaps that’s why Japanese designer Maki Yamada opened an awesome online shop called Guinea Pig Fashion. There you’ll find a variety of clothing and fashion accessories custom-made for cavies. It’s undeniably cute and delightfully strange.
For the cavy who fancies lovely blonde locks topped by an adorable hat there’s the Straw Hat + Blonde Hair Extension.There are all sorts of pretty Dresses and Kimonos. The stealthy pig can don a tiny Ninja Costume while the more generally active and sporty pig has a selection of adorable Tank Tops< from which to choose. There’s even a frilly Guinea Pig Wedding Dress and White Veil, which pairs perfectly with the Guinea Pig Wedding Tuxedo with Base Tank Top. (But we caution you to keep an eye on those brides and grooms. It takes barely the blink of an eye for two guinea pigs to turn into six.)
These gorgeous dresses are part of an awesome series entitled Wearable Foods. Created by Korean artist Yeonju Sung, each of these beautiful garments was elaborately made of edible materials such as red peppers, eggplants, bananas, green onions, lotus roots, white radishes, tomatoes, and red cabbage. The bottom two pieces are made of bubble gum.
While one may categorically define Sung’s good-enough-to-eat collection as sculptural foodwear, it is just as much a photographic series. The artist explains, “I create my own world of reality by generating a completely different set of images that contradict the conventional notion of food and clothes. As time goes by, the food from my work do go through a progression of disappearance due to the nature of food and gets gradually changed into the hideous state fading its shape and color in the process…”
We may have a new cutest picture on the internet. This picture of a mini-pig, by KittenBabySitter, reveals its layers of cuteness as you look at it. One, it’s a sleeping miniature pig with a pink snout. Cute! Wearing a sweater vest! Cuter! Then, you notice that it’s wearing tiny gripper socks and your head explodes like a cute bomb went off in your skull. Cute-boom!
Don’t let your little chelonian friends get cold, dress their shells in adorable handmade Turtle and Tortoise Cozies! Katie Bradley runs an Etsy shop called MossyTortoise where she sells an assortment of tortoise-related art and accessories - including these cozies, crocheted with soft yarn from her own patterns.
“10% of the income from my Etsy shop will benefit the International Reptile Rescue in Canby Oregon. The rest will go towards my own tortoises, as well as future ones I will rescue and rehabilitate. I keep a tortoise blog, where I post photos and updates about my pets and rescued tortoises.”
But that’s not all, Katie also crochets Tortoise Flowers (see the bottom two photos), made to help you keep track of your turtle or tortoise friend while they’re enjoying a (supervised!) wander around your lawn.
Visit MossyTortoise to view more of Katie Bradley’s incredibly cute and completely awesome creations.
Yago Partal, a graphic artist based in Barcelona, has created an awesome photo series entitled Zoo Portraits, depicting a wide variety of animals who all share two things in common: they like dressing up in stylish clothing and posing for fashion portraits.
For a series of photos entitled Hunger Pains, New York-based photographer Ted Sabarese dressed his models in foods they were personally craving: bread, pasta, meat, vegetables, fruit and, our personal favourite, waffle pants.
The Geyser of Awesome salutes anyone who not only loves waffles so much that they’d wear them as a garment, but also be able to pull off the wearing off them with as much style as the beautifully-bearded model photographed by Ted Sabarese. We are impressed and hungry. We’d gladly take a serving of what each one of these models is wearing. (Followed by seconds of the waffles.)

This scrumptious fashion accessory is the work of Shaira who recently opened her own Etsy store called Raspberries and Rum. The 66” long Pizza Scarf is printed to look like a giant slice of delicious pepperoni pizza, but Shaira says customers may contact her to request different pizza toppings, lengths, and other forms of customization. Awesome!
The only problem we have with this incredibly appetizing scarf is that we start to crave pizza every single time we look at it. Then again, maybe that’s not really a problem. But between this and the Bacon Scarf, we’ll end up having to wear a bib on top to protect the scarves from our hungry drooling.

Meet Fivla and Vitamin, an awesomely cute pair of Shetland ponies dressed in custom cardigan sweaters as part of a project by Scotland’s national tourist board at VisitScotland for Year of Natural Scotland 2013, a year-long celebration of their wonderful country.
The Shetland Pony ambassadors from our photos come courtesy of Thordale Shetland Stud Centre, and are wearing jumpers made of Shetland wool created by local Shetland knitter Doreen Brown, of Shetland Collection.
Rob McDougall photographed the jumper-wearing ponies in a variety of beautiful Scottish landscapes. Head over to the VisitScotland blog to view more photos. We’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, but the prospect of visiting Shetland ponies wearing people clothes has us ready to start shopping for plane tickets right away.

This incredibly awesome and wonderfully creepy Robotic Spider Dress is the result of a collaboration between Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht and Austrian software developer Daniel Schatzmayr. The dress features arachnoid legs mounted on the wearer’s shoulders that move whenever the dress senses nearby movement.
“Schatzmayr’s obsession with hacking hexapods, along with Wipprecht’s established ability to craft fashions that defy convention resulted in this nightmarish hybrid reminiscent of the Borg Queen’s unsettling robot spine host body. As a Halloween costume, the Robotic Spider Dress would win every time, but as a piece of fashion, it might actually be an early look at practical robotics-enhanced garments.”
Could this be the cutting edge of edible fashion?
For a beautiful and playful new series entitled Barbapapa, photographer Isabelle Chapuis photographed models wearing cotton candy as hair, jackets, belts, and coats.
Perfect for fashionistas with a sweet tooth.
